Faceoff: Ultra-Endurance Runner Is Victorious

Over Tesla Model 3 on 250-mile Course

Stamina Secrets: Training, Diet, Grit, Insanity… and A Revolutionary Neuroscience Technology

AUSTIN, TEXAS (Issued June 8, 2022) — Which contestant would you pick to win a 250-mile race between man and machine? Would you bet on world-record holding ultra-endurance athlete – Robbie Balenger –or on a Tesla Model 3?

Hold your bet! Robbie just accomplished another amazing feat in his journey to test human limits. The Tesla Model 3 battery charge lasted 242 miles. But Robbie’s battery did not run out. Following prescribed race rules – running 77 straight hours except for NuCalmÒ breaks totaling four hours and 47 minutes — he passed the Tesla’s end point, accomplishing this incredible feat of strength, endurance, perseverance –and perhaps a touch of insanity. He not only bested the 430 horsepower Tesla, but also beat the Texas heat, 80%+ humidity, over 13,900 cumulative elevation gain through the rolling hills, fluctuating weather, rattlesnakes and other wildlife.


The Ground Rules
On April 12, both contestants started at the same point, approximately 250 miles outside Austin, Texas. The Tesla’s assignment was to travel the full duration of its battery charge — marking the endpoint where Robbie would have to cross. The Tesla started out with a 100 percent charge and went until it ran out of charge – 242 miles. Robbie followed the same route and 77 hours later he crossed the 243-mile mark!

The Fuel and Tools Robbie Uses to Make the Unbelievable Happen
We all know that to challenge the limits of being human, you must invest considerable time in physical and mental conditioning, but what separates Robbie from other endurance athletes is his commitment to plant-based nutrition and NuCalm for recovery.

Before this effort, Robbie stated, “To out-distance the Tesla, I need to run all day, every day, and will rely on NuCalm to avoid sleep and give me the recovery, energy, and mental focus to continue.”

Jim Poole, CEO of Solace Lifesciences, the makers of NuCalm, was blown away with Robbie’s effort. “When Robbie told me that he wanted to try and outlast a Tesla in the Texas heat, my mind could not comprehend why? I love challenges, but why would he want to run for 3 days straight without sleep? And how could he accomplish it? I was certain he would need to NuCalm 3-4 times per day to get the proper recovery for such an outrageous effort. Boy, was I wrong! Robbie once again proved that he is in a different class.”

NuCalm – Expedited Recovery without Drugs

NuCalm is patented, clinically proven neuroscience technology that quickly transitions the brain and body from a state of high stress to deep relaxation and recovery within minutes. NuCalm uses state-of-the-art applied neuropsychobiology and neurobioinformatics to mimic the body’s natural experience of slowing down brain and body function in preparation for sleep.

The neuroscience behind NuCalm is complex, but the application is a simple three-step process: patented neuroacoustic software to guide brain wave function, a biosignal processing disc to interrupt adrenaline production, and a light-blocking mask. NuCalm takes just seconds to apply and within minutes your body enters the state of deep recovery. NuCalm puts the brakes on the stress response and suspends you in the healing zone to accelerate recovery and maximize performance.

Poole said, “I first experienced the concept of NuCalm in a doctor’s office in San Antonio, Texas, in September 2009 and it was a unique and powerful experience. At that time, I had no idea how it worked, nor what it could do. Now, 13 years later, I have witnessed amazing NuCalm outcomes across the globe – from helping stage IV cancer patients, professional athletes, elite military operators, pilots, business executives, to invasive day surgeries – NuCalm always delivers. But Robbie’s effort to run 242 miles in 77 hours with no sleep in hot/humid conditions is unbelievable. A new extreme has been set.”

Robbie says, “My hope is that this feat inspires others to leave their comfort zones and embrace innovation, be it by challenging perceptions of their own physical limits, or by making lifestyle changes that can have a positive effect on the planet. I want to inspire others to start paying more attention to what they put inside their bodies – like following a plant-based diet – to be an example of someone who has made a radical change and feels better for it. I also want people to understand and appreciate the power and importance of physical and mental recovery so they can get the most out of their body’s and their life.”

The Patented Biosignal Processing Disc 

Your body is an electrical conduit filled with conductive saline. Our Patented Biosignal Processing Discs create an electical feedback loop directly to your brain, using frequency resonance to calm your autonomic nervous system and prime your body and mind for recovery.

What’s in It?

Our Biosignal Processing Discs contain ZERO drugs. The design you see on the outside houses small bits of copper that hold an very light electrical charge.

How Does it Work?

When Applied to the Pericardium 6 accupressure point, the charge in the disc is activated by your body’s Gauss Field, the natural electromagnetic field that surrounds every human. Once activated, the disc produces a frequency that instructs your brain to begin creating the Neurotransmitter GABA.

Is It Safe?

Absolutely 100% Safe for pets, children, plants, or any living thing. The minute charge in the discs cannot shock you. GABA is already present in your body, and is safe at any level, its primary purpose is to supress your autonomic nervous system (stress response) and help you begin to relax.
