Hi, We're Kona Kase.
At the heart of Kona Kase’s mission is our desire to inspire people to create and maintain a healthy lifestyle. We believe that anyone can get and stay healthy if they’re given the right tools and that’s what Kona Kase is all about.
Every month, we deliver you top tier nutritional products to help you achieve their nutritional and fitness goals. Whether you simply want to learn to run a mile without passing out or you’re training for your third Ironman Triathalon, we’ve got you covered. We taste, we test, and we send only the best right to your door step. If we don’t love it, you don’t get it.
Taylor has run several marathons and relays. He feels uncomfortable in spandex and looks awkward using a foam roller. He enjoys Dolphin Club swims in the San Francisco Bay and experimenting with new kinds of endurance nutrition.
John has done triathlons and several bike centuries. He biked 3,500 miles from Oregon to Connecticut in 2009 with three dirtbag friends. Unlike Taylor, he seeks opportunities to wear spandex at inopportune moments. He gets into the woods often to mountain bike with his dog, Chloe.
It’s May 2012. We were running the Relay (200 team relay from Calistoga, CA to Santa Cruz, CA) and found ourselves sitting in the back of an Econoline van eating tortilla chips and slices of provolone cheese to fuel up before the race. We were tired of eating the same old boring energy bars, but finding similarly healthy alternatives wasn’t easy.
Everyone on our team was talking about these great but relatively small or unknown brands they had heard of but couldn’t find. We knew there had to be a better way to discover awesome nutritional products than scouring local health shops or fitness websites or reading tons of product reviews and nutritional labels trying to separate the good from the bad.
We wanted to create a platform where runners, cyclists, swimmers, and yoga/Crossfit aficionados could sample different brands from around the country to find what works best for them. And so, Kona Kase was born.
