For the past 18 months, with almost every race, Katharine Berkoff has established new personal best (PB) times. Last summer Katharine stunned everyone with a 58.01 in the 100m backstroke, yet another PB and a podium finish at the World Championships.

This year she continues her course of new PBs. Consider her improvements from the 2023 to the 2024 NCAAs. She lowered her 50-yard free from 21.54 to 21.09, her 100-yard free from 46.87 to 46.23, and in her specialty, the 100-yard back, she dropped her time from 49.13 to 48.5, recording some of the fastest times in history. Based on these outstanding performances one thing appears clear for her future…THE BEST IS YET TO COME!

A Secret Ingredient to Success

The transformative factor in Katharine’s incredible improvement was a newfound focus on nutrition. Katharine came to recognize the critical importance of nutrition and GOT HEALTHY! Just 18 months ago, Katharine confessed to suffering from constant fatigue, experiencing one illness after another, including Mono. With frequent interruptions to her training, her swimming success was in jeopardy. Fortunately, Geoff Mykleby, a staunch Wolfpack supporter, introduced Katharine to his good friend Tim Shead, founder of P2Life Nutrition.

Berkoff began using three key P2Life products to kickstart her health recovery: NutriBoost, EnduroBoost, and the Women’s Multivitamin. As her health improved, PowerBoost was added to her regimen to enhance training for power and stamina. The results were transformative, allowing her to consistently train hard and set new personal bests.

On Instagram, Berkoff shared, “Thanks to @P2Life Nutrition, I have all my nutritional needs covered. These adaptogens have kept my energy levels high, even on my toughest days.”
