5-Hour Energy Featured Fan: Crystal Romain

Friday, August 28, 2009
It’s been a few weeks since the 5-Hour Energy Guy met up with a winner of the 5-Hour Energy Featured Fan Contest, and it just wouldn’t be right without shining some light on those women that rep 5-Hour the best.

Crystal says that she’s your average girl, working the typical 8-5 Monday through Friday. On the surface she definitely fits the part, but you wouldn’t think that this girl has a dark side. But three nights a week she straps on some fighting gear and becomes Ivanna B. Vicious, a menacing member of the New Hampshire roller derby team Skate Free or Die.



Energy Guy:
Crystal, you’re definitely one of our most unique Featured Fans.
How long have you been taking 5-Hour Energy shots?

Crystal:

I have been taking the shots for about four months now.

Energy Guy:
What made you start taking 5-Hour Energy shots?

Crystal:
I hated the shaky feeling other energy drinks gave me and really wanted something to boast my energy without side effects.

Energy Guy:

What did you first like about 5-Hour Energy shots?

Crystal:
I felt like I just had extra energy. Plain and simple. No jitters, no crash, no queasy feeling. Just good ol' plain energy.

Energy Guy:
You’re a very active girl, working full-time and then skating three nights a week. You’ve got to be drained of energy by the end of all this. When do you take 5-Hour Energy shots? Early in the morning, mid-day, evening?

Crystal:
I take them at 6 p.m. which is right before roller derby practice. Following a day working the 8-5 as Crystal, I get that needed energy to become Ivanna B. Vicious!

Energy Guy:

Did you try other energy boosting beverages before becoming a faithful 5-Hour fan?

Crystal:

Yes, several and they don't live up to 5-Hour Energy.

Energy Guy:
In what ways have 5-Hour Energy shots improved your life?

Crystal:
I can push myself harder in practice when I probably would be on the sidelines because of a long day at work. It helps me with that extra boost to do five more push-ups or one more lap around the rink.

Energy Guy:
Crystal, we love that 5-Hour helps you to turn into a fearless fighter on skates. Keep your dukes up and your competition down!

Do You Have What It Takes To Be a 5-Hour Man?

Wednesday, August 26, 2009

Back in July our team challenged you to MAXIMize your energy at the gym, library and office. Now we are challenging our fans and Men’s Fitness magazine readers to try to become a 5-Hour Man.

This new contest will take you to the 5-Hour Energy’s Men’s Fitness page where you can take on more games and quizzes. The first step in the search is finding out your as a 5-Hour Energy Man. There are a number of types, from the Life of the Party character to Don Juan/Casanova romantic, and the Which 5-Hour Man Are You? profiler will help you find your best fit.

The second phase is proving that a title of 5-Hour Energy Man can be held. The first challenge tests your athletic ability. The 5-Hour Energy 100m Dash puts you in control of the 5-Hour Energy Guy as he sprints to the finish line. Seems simple enough, right? But to break the record times they’re going to need an extra boost without the sugar crash that only 5-Hour Energy shots have. Snatch a 5-Hour energy shot and you’ll be at full-stride, stumble on a sugary canned energy drink and you’ll lag behind the competition.

The second challenge measures the cognitive realm of these wannabe 5-Hour Energy Men. The 5-Hour Energy Scavenger Hunt will take you through the 5-Hour Energy Web site in search of the special tokens and hidden codes. As a contestant you will need a keen eye and strong problem-solving ability to beat this one as tokens are everywhere, including other uncommon places the 5-Hour Energy Guy hangs out like Twitter. Winners will take home up to a year’s supply of 5-Hour Energy shots.

The last step is entering to become the newest 5-Hour Featured Fan. All that’s needed is a photo and story of 400 words or less that showcases why a challenger is one of 5-Hour Energy's biggest fans and what makes you a 5-Hour Energy Man. The chosen one will be added to the 5-Hour Energy A-list of fans, becoming the freshest face of their favorite energy booster, and will be twisting the caps of from 5-Hour Energy shots everyday for a year.

The contest ends on Oct. 16, so you've got time to practice the challenges and become the optimal 5-Hour Energy Man, with your face on the Web site and your closet filled with 5-Hour Energy.

The 5-Hour Energy Drivers Prepare to Dodge the Wrecks Once Again at Bristol

Friday, August 21, 2009
It was way back on March 21 when 5-Hour Energy returned to NASCAR and stopped off at the season’s most popular half-mile oval Bristol Motor Speedway. Just five months and twenty races later, the team is back and ready to repeat a performance that included a pole position start from Brendan Gaughan and top-10 finish from Steve Wallace for the Food City 250.

Coming off a top-15 performance at Michigan International Speedway the CARFAX 250, Wallace hopes to nail down the steering problems he wrestled with on his no. 66 5-Hour Energy Chevrolet. He remains in strong competition for the Nationwide Series championship at sixth in overall points and has been consistent with ill-handling cars at some of the toughest tracks. Wallace has quickly become known as one of the series’ short track aces and is a favorite heading to Thunder Valley.

Like his teammate, Brendan Gaughan and the no. 62 Extra Strength 5-Hour Energy Chevrolet have been on track to a successful rookie season with Rusty Wallace Racing. Gaughan also battled through a handling condition at Michigan and then suffered a cut left front tire which would push him back to 29th-place finish. Although it was a tough day for Gaughan, he’s heading to the crash-happy oval this weekend in the top-10 for season standings.

It’s going to be an exciting event under the lights of Bristol on Friday Aug. 21. When Thunder Valley is mentioned among race fans, there is just one thought – crashes. For the race teams, trying not to be involved in the wrecks is one thing, winning the race is another and the 5-Hour Energy drivers have the alert and focused advantage to take the checkered.

5-Hour Energy Featured Fan: Henry Yu

Wednesday, August 5, 2009

The 5-Hour Energy Guy sat down this week with another winner of the 5-Hour Energy Featured Fan Contest. Before starting the interview, he relayed his satisfaction with the Q&A that he had with Tony Vasquez last week. Being a fan of competition and upping his output, he has decided to keep it fair and use the same questions for a quick interview with someone who uses 5-Hour to gain that focused cognitive advantage instead of just physical boost.

The second newest member of the 5-Hour Energy Fan Zone is a soon-to-be pharmacist who was an avid coffee drinker. Henry Yu was putting down two to three cups of joe every day, but after the java started giving him heart burn and that white smile began to fade, he searched for a new source of liveliness. At first hesitant about 5-Hour Energy, Henry proudly proclaims now that those 2oz sugar crash-free shots got him through the rigors of pharmacy school and are part of his routine when studying for his two licensing exams.


Energy Guy:

Henry, let me extend my congratulations on becoming a 5-Hour Energy featured fan! What made you start taking 5-Hour Energy shots?

Henry:
I was a huge coffee drinker. It was cheap and easily accessible. But when I started getting terrible heartburn and noticed my teeth were being stained, I dropped sipping the battery acid and tried out a 5-Hour Energy.

Energy Guy:
How long have you been taking 5-Hour Energy shots?

Henry:
I’ve been using them for about two years now, and they’ve gotten me through the most vigorous two years of my schooling.

Energy Guy:
What did you first like about 5-Hour Energy shots?

Henry:
It worked quickly and tasted great.

Energy Guy:
Looking at your daily routine, when do you take 5-Hour Energy shots?

Henry:
I always use them when I’m studying, especially now that I’m devoting so much time to my pharmaceutical exams. But when I need to relieve some stress, basketball is my out and a shot is the perfect boost to my game

Energy Guy:
What other energy boosting beverages have you tried?

Henry:
Red Bull, Monster, coffee…you name it, I tried it.


Energy Guy:

In what ways have 5-Hour Energy shots improved your life?

Henry:
Studying…it’s my life!

Energy Guy:
Well Henry you’re a great example of the versatility of 5-Hour Energy shots and how they are not just for marathon runners or extreme athletes. Thank you for the interview and keep it up.
