As Chloè Dygert churned into the home stretch last summer in Rio de Janeiro during the Women’s Cycling Team Pursuit qualifying heat, Chloè knew she had raced faster than ever. Although edged out by Great Britain in the gold medal race, this Shaklee Pure Performance Team member was still pleased: “We won the silver medal with a 100 percent effort by all four team members—we left it all on the track and had an amazing day.”
With a gold medal in the 2016 World Championships last March, a silver medal in Rio, and a gold medal in the 2017 World Championships in Hong Kong on April 13th, Chloè is on her way to becoming a dominant figure on the cycling track, with a goal to compete in the next four or even five games.
What’s her secret to success? “I’ve been blessed with a good family, good genes, and a competitive nature; I don’t like losing, and I like to work that extra mile, do my best,” said Chloè. “But one thing you might not know about a lot of athletes like me is that we’re able to ‘clean up’ on the track because we literally clean up on the home front. If I can get things squared away at home then I can focus better on the track.”
For Chloè, that cleaning is simple but comprehensive, and always includes Shaklee Get Clean® products. “Some people might consider me a clean freak, but if things are dirty, I feel like cleaning—if I leave a mess behind it stresses me and it’s harder to go through workouts. I want the house to be cleaned so I can dress and prepare at least an hour before the ride. And coming home to a clean home is a huge relief.
“I use Shaklee cleaning products on everything from laundry to litter box, from countertops to kits (cycling jerseys, shorts, socks, etc.). I wipe all surfaces with the Germ Off Disinfecting Wipes, which don’t have the nasty smell or filmy residue of other popular brands. The countertops, backsplash, refrigerator, and even our equipment all get a good wipe down and of course, there’s never a stain or loose wipe fibers.”
Chloè added, “Years ago my family used the Nature Bright® Laundry Booster and Stain Remover, which works absolutely great for all our fabrics. Our kits have a mixture of colors, but the colors don’t run or fade, and the whites are brighter. We kick up a lot of grit on the road, so having a powerful stain remover is definitely something I need. We look better, and our kits last longer.”
“The Fresh Laundry Concentrate and Soft Fabric Concentrate don’t ruin our HE washing machine. We save water because we don’t use as much water to get a good clean, and the clothes always smell great and last longer. That’s water, time, effort, and energy saved…and those are more of all the things I can use when I’m riding.”
Chloè isn’t shy about her confidence in the Get Clean® products. “I love, LOVE the Shaklee cleaning products. They work great, never harm the environment, and will hopefully keep me cleaning up in the places that matter most.”
A special thank you to Chloè Dygert, Silver Medal winner in Rio 2016 and Shaklee Pure Performance Team member.
