Were Pre-Workouts like Pringles? Once you pop, you can't stop? Not that I can even eat Pringles anymore, but you know what I mean. Plus, most pre-workout supplements have about 8573495 ingredients in them that I can't pronounce, let alone know what they actually are. And then there's the issue of if its gluten free and if so, my IBS still may not like it very much. SO, I've steered clear of using them, after all, I am a big believer in using your own mindset to change your attitude, so even on my worst days, I head to the gym, because I know aftewards, I'll feel a lot better.
BUT when Vega Sport teamed up with Fit Approach through a product review for their FUEL YOUR BETTER campaign, I just KNEW I had to sieze this opportunity of trying their all natural Pre-Workout Energizer. Natural ingredients meant I knew what I was putting in my body and felt comfortable that my IBS would tolerate a plant-based pre-workout supplement with medicinal ingredients.

According to the website Vega Sport Pre-Workout Energizer is:
"A unique blend of 13 synergistic plant-based performance-improving ingredients, like green tea, yerba mate, coconut oil and rhodiola, specifically selected to:
- Provide immediate and sustained energy
- Increase endurance, aerobic and anaerobic capacity
- Enhance mental focus and recovery
Wow, that's a lot of science! Where's Bill Nye when I need him?
WATCH THIS this video: it describes all the medicinal ingredient benefits and what each helps you do to Fuel Your Better! (If you're like me and want to know exactly what something is being used for)
Unfortunately, I'm injured right now and have had to drastically alter my workout routine......
Props to all of you cyclists out there! Cause, I literally felt like giving up after five minutes. My energy was sucked out of me after only six hundred seconds of steady state pedaling and I hadn't even broke a sweat at that point...
Thankfully my Vega Sport Pre-Workout Energizer Acai Berry was waiting for me at my post box that night. I made it part of my game plan to take it before my next Cycling attempt.
The box says to take it twenty minutes before a workout, well I had a lot of thoughts and feelings within those twenty minutes...
The color threw me off, I expected it to be purple like the actual berry, not a mustard yellow
Curious over what the clumps were, see the video!
Well, I think it'd just be better to show you my face...
It's not something I would look forward to drinking,
I would and WILL drink it again!
While sipping it's fine, but the after taste is a bit, unexplainable. If you've ever had airborne fizzy tablets, you may know what I'm talking about. Just like airborne, you take it cause you know it helps, but that doesn't mean you love the flavor or taste while doing so.
Off to the gym I went to see if this strange concoction truly was an adequate energizer!
Well, I figured no one really wanted to see a photo of me immediately after getting off the bike, dripping wet with sweat, so I settled for a smiling selfie instead as proof of how AWESOME of a workout I got from using the Acai Berry Vega Sport Pre-Workout Energizer. I may not love the taste, but I love the results it gave me! At first, I thought it was just the placebo effect of using it once, BUT I've used the Pre-Workout THREE times in the last week, and each cycling session has been sweatier than the last. Did my quads still burn? YES OF COURSE, I may have looked like I was crying at some points cause I was "feelin' the fire" BUT, I was able to push through! I was able to get in a HIIT workout, do abs, and even upper body exercises. I felt focused while at the gym and not distracted. or unwilling to be there. Sometimes, even when I'm in the zone, I become unfocused and will dilly dally or think about wanting to leave, whether I'm finished with my sets or not. No dilly dallying for this girl ALL week! ! I went into the gym determined, stayed focused the entire time, and killed it with each exercise set I intended to do. If that's not considered a successful sweat session, than I don't know what is, hence my smile!
I've already gone through half my samples already and will be very sorry when I fully run out. Looks like I know what my next pay check will be going towards!
Use Vega Sport to help Fuel Your Better! I know I will be :)
