Hey sports fans!! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I am a self admitted “rink rat” so a lot of this blog will be about figure skating and hockey, however as an ex-figure skater, ex-varsity athlete and a sports fan in general, I usually have thoughts and opinions about alot of different sports I follow, so visit often!

Yuzuru Hanyu: Commercials: Amino Vital

Amino Vital:  Athletes often endorse sports nutritional products, and Yuzuru is no exception.  There are so many different brands of nutrition supplements out there on the market that it is really hard to know which one to choose.  I’m not here to recommend any specific product(s), just to say that everyone should do their research and find the product that is best suited for themselves based on what your fitness/health goals are.  I would think that Yuzuru has a ton of brand endorsement offers on the table, so I assume he would pick a quality product to endorse, and one that he believes in.


Official website:

While he endorses Amino Vital, it’s funny to see that Yuzuru actually uses a different brand.  Based on a news clip that was shown on Japan TV, it looks like he actually uses the Deep Impact product.  This screen shot doesn’t show it perfectly, but some fans have analyzed the news clip frame by frame and identified that he is eating as the Deep Impact product.  Perhaps he takes both – for different purposes.  Only Yuzu knows.

not vital 1 deep impact

First Amino Vital commercial:

The English transaction of the video (cr to yuzusorbet on tumblr): “Effort.  Passion.  Devotion.  Growth.  Victory.  Future.  Gratitude.  Challenge.  Progress.  Sports.  Water.  Amino acids.  Amino Vital.”

This commercial is simple, and powerful.  I wish they would have lightened it up just a little bit though, I find it a bit too dark.

Second Amino Vital commercial:

The English translation of the video (cr to yuzuru-hanyu on tumblr):  “If you cannot do it, practice until you can do it.  If you can do it, then practice until you can do it perfectly.  If you can do it perfectly, then practice until you can do it perfectly every time.”

I LOVE this commercial and what Yuzuru says in it.  I am curious if Yuzuru had any input into writing the script or if he was just given a scrip to read??  Regardless, the lines really match his determination and work ethic.

NEXT: Xylitol White

    There’s a youtube vid after the Sochi LP, he off on the sides of the arena. He has two nutrient packets (one of them is gold colored like the Amino brand) with him that he takes before he got ushered off to another round of media interviews. I’m from the US so I’m not familiar with the products but maybe a native can help identify them? Here’s the link:

      HI Betty:
      Thanks for the link to the video!! I chatted with a friend and she thought that the 2 packets were Amino Vital. The Yellow one might be the Amino Vital GOLD: BCAA2400 and the Purple one might be the Amino Vital Focus Zone. I have a picture of the products but it does not appear that I can post pictures in comments…so you might be able to find them based on the names I gave. 🙂
      Thanks for reading my blog!
