Colin O'Brady: The Impossible Row

Colin O'Brady:
The Impossible Row

Rowing from South America to Antarctica with nutritional support from Standard Process
 

Most people shy away from the impossible.
Colin O’Brady seeks it out.

He has set world records in several challenges:  

  • Explorers Grand Slam (2016)
  • Seven Summits (2016)
  • Three Poles Challenge (2016)
  • Highest Points in all 50 U.S. States (2018)
  • “The Impossible First”: A 932-mile solo trek across Antarctica — unsupported, and completely human-powered — in just 54 days (2018)

And he’s just getting started.

 

The Impossible Row


Beginning December 9th, 2019, Colin will take on “The Impossible Row” — the first human-powered ocean row across the Drake Passage, from the southern tip of South America to the edge of Antarctica. Though it will be a challenging journey, he won’t be going it alone.

The Standard Process scientific nutrition team supported Colin during his Antarctic trek last year, and this year, is doing the same for Colin and the other five athletes for the “The Impossible Row” challenge.

Reaching Goals & Changing Lives


For more than 90 years, Standard Process has changed lives by delivering whole food-based nutrition the way nature intended. Whether you’re crossing a continent or chasing a better version of yourself, we can help you reach your health goals.

Standard Process works with Colin O’Brady to reach optimal health through nutrient-dense, therapeutic, whole food-based supplements. The clinicians, nutritionists, and scientists at the Standard Process Nutrition Innovation Center ran numerous diagnostic tests, analyzed Colin’s health, and fine-tuned his nutrition to help prepare his body for tough challenges.

In addition, we created a personalized, organic, plant-based nutritional bar that offered a proprietary blend of macronutrients, phytoactives, and specialty slow-release carbohydrates to deliver optimal support. Each bar contained 1,180 calories, which provided enough high-quality fuel for Colin’s extraordinary “The Impossible First” endeavor. Standard Process has also developed a customized bar for “The Impossible Row,” based on the challenge’s particular demands.

We were with Colin at the 50 Highest Points in all 50 U.S. States. We were alongside him when he trekked across Antarctica. And we’ll be with him again throughout “The Impossible Row.”

In 2018: The Impossible Journey

The Shackleton Expedition, AKA The Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition: 932 miles, a 10,000-foot climb, and an average temperature of -22 degrees Fahrenheit. Only a handful of people have attempted the trek across Antarctica unassisted and unaided. And now, one man has become the first to successfully complete it.

Colin O’Brady, a man who was told he may never walk normally again after suffering severe burns on nearly 25% of his body, has conquered The Impossible First, crossing Antartica, solo, unaided, and unassisted.

He's a four-time world record holder for summiting the highest points on all 7 continents and reaching the highest point in all 50 U.S. states, both in record times, but Shackleton has nothing to do with speed and everything to do with endurance. Nutrition was the key to his success. That’s why he’s partnered with Standard Process to develop a research-backed supplement strategy to integrate with his own nutritional strategy. Because no matter your journey, from a 1,000-mile impossible expedition, to running a 5K, or taking your first steps back to better health, Standard Process is there to support you along the way.
