Hi, I'm Steve Onak. I am an ex-collegiate athlete, Ironman, and Hybrid Athlete. My wife, Kayla and I started Simpl. because of a passion for health, wellness and the continuous journey of self-improvement. We can't wait to share what's worked for us with all of you!
Our Origin Story
As a kid I was consistently sick, after countless failed doctors visits and numerous rounds of antibiotics which killed my gut, I turned to holistic medicine which was a game changer for me. Fast forward 5 years, I took on high school + college and began to lose my health conscious focus.
I started off college as a competitive athlete until getting Lyme Disease my freshman year and having to withdraw from school due to illness. While you would think this would reignite the focus and importance of health, it did the opposite leaving me frustrated and discouraged. A year later, I transferred schools where I joined frat life and quickly fell into bad habits that destroyed my gut yet again and seemed to revert all of the health work I had done while growing up.
After graduating from college I knew I needed to make a commitment to my health + body. As I entered the corporate world I quickly realized that something was missing. Personally, I wanted to do more and be more. I sought out physical challenges to bring me back to my roots of a life focused on health, wellness, and pushing myself to reach peak performance.
I started training for my first triathlon and struggled to find a hydration + fuel supplement that did not kill my stomach during a long run. This is when I realized most of the supplements out there were packed with either sugar or carbs which annihilate my gut.
This is where the idea of Simpl. Hydration + Aminos came from. After years of research on what it was my body needed to perform at its peak, we decided to take the leap and create our own hydration + fuel supplement. Simpl. Hydration + Aminos is formulated with electrolytes and essential amino acids (EAAs) which act as the fuel source to support your peak performance both before and after your workout. When taken before a workout, the electrolytes and EAAs provide a no sugar fuel source without the crash. They will then provide your muscles with the nutrients needed to rebalance your hydration, improve athletic recovery and build lean muscle mass as a perfect post-workout recovery. Join us in the mission to retake control of your health.
