Precision Hydration is an English company launched in 2011 that has developed over years with top athletes and technology partners a simple and effective way to help athletes understand and manage their individual hydration needs.
Founder, Andy Blow, has a degree in sport and exercise science and as a young man regularly finished on the podium in short course triathlon races.
He did, however, perform poorly in races in the heat and over longer IRONMAN distances. He suffered from cramps and had other hydration issues, including hyponatremia (low blood sodium levels, which can have serious consequences) despite widely accepted hydration advice at the time.

About the company
After years of trial and error, he finally figured out how to effectively manage his individual sodium and fluid intake to maintain his performance.
He was greatly aided in this process by Dr. Raj Jutley, a highly respected cardiac surgeon, who introduced him to the concept of the sweat test and the huge variation in sweat and sodium loss that can occur from a athlete to another.
It was through his own search for an effective solution that, with input from Dr. Jutley, the concept of precision hydration was born.
As things progressed, we gained exclusive access to patented sweat testing technology that requires no physical effort on the part of the athlete. This technology has a long and credible history as a diagnostic test for cystic fibrosis and is simple, non-invasive, painless and extremely accurate.
We also developed our own line of electrolyte supplements early on, as existing products were simply not potent enough to meet the needs of the most demanding athletes.
When it comes to hydration, the one-size-fits-all formula just isn't enough. Just look at our team: Andy loses more than three times more sodium per liter of sweat than Dr. Raj! !
The team has grown with the arrival of Jonny Tye, a paddler who had won two silver medals at the Junior World Championships before becoming involved in advancing the development of our products.
Word quickly spread that we were offering a unique and personalized hydration solution. Soon we were offering our services to a growing list of professional sports teams from the English Premier League, International Rugby Union, NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, Formula 1, MotoGP and Indy Car, as well as elite people from the world of cycling, running, triathlon and other disciplines.
We've even worked with railroad workers, firefighters and the military, who are exposed to high levels of heat stress and sweat, helping them maintain performance in the harshest environments.
We are now accumulating so much data on how athletes sweat that we were able to develop a free, algorithm-based questionnaire to provide personalized hydration advice, even if an athlete cannot make it to one of our sweat testing centers.
Our mission is to give every athlete access to a personalized hydration strategy so they have the best chance of achieving their goals.
