It's no secret that 2020 was a difficult year, and 2021 didn't turn out to be much better. With supply chain issues all over the place and delays delays delays, it was tough to stay positive and keep our heads up.  But the BASE team kept everyone positive and their spirits high. For all of us. Our team was able to keep each other motivated, positive, and share the love. In these trying times of the year, we continued with our Team Mantra, "What's Your B?"  What this means is each day you can wake up and B anything. B positive. B a jerk. B Kind. B inspirational. It's your choice. 

WHAT'S YOUR B?

HAVE YOU EVER WANTED TO ATTEND AN ADULT CAMP IN FLORIDA IN FEBRUARY AND TRAIN WITH LIKE MINDED FRIENDS?

 

BASE hosts 2 BASE Camps each year.  The first is in Clermont, Florida at the end of February, and the second is in Boulder, CO  (HOME BASE Headquarters) over Memorial Day weekend. You will make some of the best friends at these camps. Cost is only $199 to attend which includes all dinners. Amazing price.

Please note. Camp attendance is not required at all. They are just a fun add on.

Don't take our word for it, read some of the testimonials from campers who have attended by clicking HERE. 

Over the past couple years we had some fun virtual events such as the BASE Duathlon.

How did the Gravel team idea come about?

A few team members went on an incredible Gravel journey over 2 mountain passes back in June of 2020 and the gravel craze was born.

What Makes The BASE Team Such A Big Family?

To start off, BASE is owned by two amazing people, husband and wife Matt Miller (the salt cowboy) and Lauralee Miller. They have 2 amazing kids Finn (2.5 years old) and Scout (13 months). We as a team were there when these two met at St George 70.3 in 2016. Many of us attended their wedding. Many of us actually visited them in the hospital the day Finn was born. Scout was born during COVID, so no visitors. Finn has attended 4 BASE Camps and over 20 Triathlons. Matt, Lauralee and Finn announced they were pregnant with Scout at BASE Camp Florida 2020. Over the past 9 years many, many team members have met through the BASE team and gone on to get married. While others have had children, and everyone on the BASE team is very welcoming and encouraging during that time. It all starts at the top with our leadership.

What awesome kits does BASE Make?

        
 
 
 
 

A Long History

The first team we had was 17 years ago in 2003. We had a nutrition company in Los Angeles called NRG Nutrition and a non profit for blind athletes called The C Different Foundation. We had custom kits from LG, wetsuits from XTERRA, helmets and sunglasses from Rudy Project, and support from partners such as the LA Tri Club, Phase 4, Robert Forster Physical Therapy, and Powerbar. From 2003 through 2013 we would have about 40-50 people on the team each year. We would lead blind athletes through races, travel together to events such as IM Lake Placid, and have an amazing time.

In 2014 we launched the BASE Performance Ambassador team, which took on a life of its own. Now today we have over 1100 team members competing all over the world in multiple sports at varying levels, yet it still feels like a family vibe and we are small like a 20 person group.

We bring this up to share with you that we know what we are doing. We know how to keep every team member together. To keep team members engaged. To help team members feel welcome. We are an every body team, not an elite team. 

So here are the details and the FAQ's:

 

Last but not least, if you are an amazing human, we want you to join. We don't do drama. We have zero political posts on our team Facebook pages. We are kind. We are loving. And we have respect for each other. We have zero drama within our teams.

If you are looking for a team which has the best Sports Nutrition on the market, we are your team. If you are looking for a team that produces the best, most comfortable, stylish and affordable workout gear, we are your team.

We hope to see you in 2022. Get excited.

    After doing my own thing for about 46 years, I decided to join Team Base. So glad I did. The fun has come back to the training, and everyone I’ve met is truly an awesome human!

    SUPER EXCITED TO REJOIN FOR YEAR #2!! What a tremendously supportive team. And I wouldn’t have made it through my first 70.3 without BASE salts! Hands down seriously awesome stuff!
