About O2

O2 was founded in Columbus, Ohio back in 2014 by a CrossFit® trainer and a medical doctor who had one goal in mind -- create a better alternative to the unhealthy sports drinks available on the market. Being active and health conscious themselves, co-founders trainer Dave and doctor Dan realized there were no healthy or great tasting sports drinks that aided them in the crucial post-workout phase, so they set out to create one themselves.

THE RESEARCH

At the time, Dr. Dan Kim uncovered research behind the role of ingested oxygen in recovery, particularly the role super oxygenated liquids have on your liver’s processing power. He found studies that showed a 60% increase in your liver’s ability to process toxins with the ingestion of oxygen, meaning your liver (your body’s largest organ) gets a boost from the added oxygen to carry out all of it’s crucial functions in the body -- like breaking down the proteins, fats and carbs you consume, and processing harmful toxins we encounter in day to day life.

“He found studies that showed a 60% increase in your liver’s ability to process toxins with the ingestion of oxygen.”

THE RESULT

With this science backed evidence, Dave and Dan knew they were onto something. They set out to create a ground-breaking one-of-a-kind recovery drink with only clean ingredients, electrolytes, natural caffeine, and added oxygen to help athletes recover faster and be the best version of themselves. The result? O2 Sports Recovery. A great tasting drink for faster workout recovery that's now sold over 2 million cans across 
the United States.

Fitness Sales Director

My preferred method of recovery is running with my baby girl and dogs! I do CrossFit, but you'd never know it because CrossFitters are so shy about that kind of stuff ;) I love sweet potatoes, ice cream, and tacos (#Tuesday).

Chris

My recovery looks like a walk with the dogs, a probably hilarious attempt at romwod and some Peach Pear O2+. I'm an Army vet, born and raised just outside of Atlanta, and when I’m not working out you’ll find me on a mountain bike trail, playing some disc golf or doing a little rock climbing.

Andrew

Key Account Activation Manager

My recovery formula is pretty simple: protein + carbs + O2. I'm an Ohioan, born and bred. I played collegiate hockey as a goalie and I won the Mr. Sexy Legs contest on a cruise once. Coincidence? When I'm not being objectified on cruises, I love reading and podcasts.

Sarah

Operations and Fulfillment Manager

My recovery modalities of choice: restorative yoga and sleep! I'm a Marine Corps Vet living in Northern Virginia and ama CrossFitter, a yogi, and a mom. The first two give me the physical capacity to survive the third. When I'm not chasing my toddler or in the gym, I love to bake.

Derek

Operations Associate

My recovery tools include cigars, tequila, and a Sidekick (graston tool, not the cellphone) Also, fun fact: I don’t have a uvula, but that hasn't stopped me from getting into Crossfit, martial arts, strongman, or bodybuilding. Outside of crushing myself at the gym, I enjoy woodwork and welding.

LEIGHA

Territory Sales Manager

My recovery looks like a sunset swim in the ocean followed by enjoying a cold Lemon Lime O2! I was born and raised in North Carolina and currently live beach side in Tampa Bay. When I’m not selling O2, you can find me in the kickboxing studio, traveling the world, or chilling on a beautiful island somewhere.

Dan

Director of Ecommerce

My preferred recovery method: BCAA's, O2, and a good meal! I'm a native Bostonian living in Connecticut and the proud dad of a toddler. When I'm not climbing over toys, I enjoy lifting and climbing obstacles in Spartan races. I'm a Navy vet and aspiring youth soccer coach.

Dave

Founder & CEO

My recovery practice involves lots of yoga, O2, and sleep! I’m an Ohio State Buckeye through and through, and my passion for all things O2 is rivaled only by my passion for punishment (i.e., growth!). That comes in the form of a CrossFit L1, a Krav Maga blackbelt, and the journey of entrepreneurship...and sometimes the rollercoaster of emotion associated with Buckeye football.
