Colin O'Brady: The Impossible Row

Colin O'Brady

Colin has completed multiple journeys 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)
  • “The Impossible Row”: part of the first completely human-powered team to cross the Drake Passage (2019)

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 also developed a customized bar for “The Impossible Row” based on the challenge’s particular demands.

2019: The Impossible Row


Colin and a team of five additional rowers wrote their names in history by conquering “The Impossible Row”: the first completely human-powered team to cross the Drake Passage, which spans from the southern tip of South America to the edge of Antarctica. The journey took tremendous courage, grit, and teamwork. It was an adventure that included:

  • Six men from four nations and three continents
  • More than 600 miles of ocean water
  • Almost 13 days straight of rowing, 24 hours a day
  • Nature’s incredible power: ferocious storms, unrelenting waves, and unforgiving winds
  • Unprecedented physical and mental challenges

It was those challenges that defined “The Impossible Row.” However — with help from Standard Process — every setback was met with calm, stamina, and perseverance. We helped sustain the team with custom nutrition-support bars that included ingredients from a number of our nutritional supplements for supporting athletic performance.

 
Colin O'Brady and The Impossible Row

In 2018: “The Impossible First”

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 one man became 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, conquered “The Impossible First” — crossing Antarctica, 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 “The Impossible First” had 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.
