During his career as a Spartan athlete, Hobie Call won more than 80% of the races he entered. He won the Spartan Race‬ World Championships in 2011, 2013 and 2014. This 39-year old “retired” Spartan World Champion came out of retirement to run the Spartan Race World Championship one more time. He once again won the 2016 Spartan World Championship!

Unquestionably the best obstacle course athlete, Hobie again demonstrated a great example of perseverance and tenacity. Hobie is a legend and a man much loved by the entire OCR community. He is a great runner who serves as inspiration and motivation for those who practice the sport.

Spartan World Champion Runs on Pines Wheat Grass

Hobie has used Pines Wheat Grass for many years. He estimates he has gone through several hundred bottles of the largest (24 ounce) size of Pines Wheat Grass powder since he has been an athlete. Hobie prefers the powders, while some other athletes prefer tablets or capsules. All are great solutions, not only for athletes but for everyone. That’s because research has shown most people do not eat enough dark green vegetables for good health and longevity.

Hobie says, “Thank you Pines International for your exceptional wheatgrass. The health required to continually win races as brutal as these is great. I contribute mine more to your products than anything else I eat. I have used your Wheat Grass for many years, and intend to continue for many more.”

The Top Choice for Athletes since 1976

Established in 1976, Pines was the Official Green Food of the Ironman Triathlon‬ in Kona, Hawaii, and is the top choice of marathon runners, triathlon participants and other performance athletes. With studies regarding the importance of dark green, leafy vegetables and the nitric oxide‬ they provide, it is clear why so many athletes feel Pines gives them an edge.

Even if you are not a World Champion, with Pines, you receive the vegetable nutrition that is lacking in most diets.
