Gordon Gilbert

Gordon Gilbert was an International football professional for 11 years but had to retire due to recurring injuries.  That’s when he discovered his love for mountain biking and hasn’t looked back since.  Gordon won Man of the Match while playing for MP Black Aces, competing in the Nedbank Cup Final and has competed in the last three Cape Epic’s with a best overall category position of 24th place, in a time of 31:52:04.

Gordon uses Back to Basics Nutrition products for his training and is proudly an ambassador in the sporting community for our products.

“I can honesty say I have never felt better since I started using B2B products. From day one everything about the brand has been so professional including the dietician that formulated my diet and supplementation. “

“Back to Basics Nutrition is the complete product for what I use it for.  I am an endurance athlete which requires you to take the correct supplements to allow you the best opportunity to perform to your potential.

Something unique about Back to basics that I love is that it’s safe for everyone to use and all the products have been carefully formulated and tested.  This is very important.  Low Gi and gluten free is such a winner. 

My body reacts to the products like no other and I am very excited about the future going forward. “
