The record breaking class, which raised funds for Sears National Kids Cancer Ride, was sponsored by Dairy Farmers of Canada (DFC) and Chocolate Milk. The class lasted for one hour and was led by fitness guru Kathy Smith, who was appearing at the annual Can-Fit-Pro Conference and Trade Show at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

  "Dairy Farmers of Canada is excited to have helped set a new Guinness record for the world's largest indoor cycling class," said Joanne Gallagher, Assistant Director, Nutrition, Dairy Farmers of Canada. "It is important for our nutrition team to get involved in events like the Can-Fit-Pro as new research emerges on the benefits of drinking chocolate milk as an effective post-workout beverage."

   Recent studies suggest that drinking chocolate milk following vigorous activity helps to speed up recovery and recharge the body for its next workout. The research supports a protein-carbohydrate combination beverage (such as chocolate milk) as a more effective post-workout recovery beverage than many popular sports beverages. In fact, those who consumed a protein-carbohydrate beverage after a workout increased their next workout performance by 21 per cent to 55 per cent versus those who consumed a carbohydrate only beverage.

   As muscle glycogen becomes depleted through exercise, the capacity to perform at a high intensity is compromised. The faster muscle glycogen stores are replenished following exercise, the faster the recovery process and the greater the return on performance.

   "We believe that the scientific evidence supports chocolate milk as an ideal beverage to replenish glycogen and repair damaged muscle fibers," said Gallagher. "Drinking chocolate milk 15 to 30 minutes after a workout to replace glycogen can help your next workout be the best it can be."
