Fuel Your Better!



I'm beyond excited to let my fellow bloggers know about Vega Sport's Pre-Workout Energizer supplement. I was chosen to review this product by Fit Approach as part of Vega Sport's campaign to show how I used the product to fuel my training. Now I'm not one to use any supplements with my training. Quite honestly, most of them just scare me since I can't pronounce half of the ingredients that are in them!! With Vega Sport's Pre-Workout Energizer, it's plant-based and I recognize all of the ingredients in it which was a huge win already. I don't need a chem lab in my stomach.


I was sent the Acai Berry flavor which was easy to mix into a cold glass of water 20 minutes before each workout. 


How did I use it to fuel my better? Well I'm training for a 15K in November and I am working toward a new PR for this distance! I look forward to this extra boost before my future races!


I'm a race junky and the Chicago Rock 'N' Roll Marathon Series was my latest one that I ran. Read about those shenanigans here! It's definitely one of my favorite races. I'm also a part of a boxing gym and I was really pleased to feel the results from the pre-workout energizer! Going through so many rounds with different punching combinations definitely tests your endurance and with this pre-workout energizer, I had SO much energy to burn. I kind of equate it to that "runner's high" you get right before the start of a race. It even lasted until after my 60-minute kickboxing class. This product really did help me focus more on my training and with increasing my endurance since with my work schedule, I'm forced to workout a lot at night after a really long day.

I was definitely pleasantly surprised with this product and it's even decently priced. I definitely recommend this pre-workout energizer mix to anyone out there who is looking for that extra push in their training and to fuel your better!

  4. Ok but how did it taste??? I've tried nuun before and some of those flavors aren't half bad. I'm more of a coconut water girl myself but would love to hear if this was delicious or just worth it for the energy.

  6. I actually bought Vega protein powder at Earthfare a few weeks ago because I was trying a new recipe. It was pretty good-- I did not know they had a pre-workout. I will have to look into that.

  7. I am going to have to try it. I use Mr. Hyde now and it gives me so much energy, I feel like I can save 30 kids out of a burning building in 5 minutes. Seriously. I will have to look into it and try it when I move and get my gym regime back (hopefully August is my "slap-in-the-face-I-gained-my-weight-back-and-now-I'm-a-fat-ass month).
