Get your LYFT on :)

Recently, I had the opportunity to try a new product, #pureLYFT ! It was a bit different then what I expected, yet I felt the benefits from it.  Im a caffeine junkie so it was nice to be able to try a #CleanCaffeine.  #pureLYFT is a different form of energy.  Most energy drinks are very sugary and prework-outs require you to shake in a blender cup and leave a bit of a powder residue. Whats great about #pureLYFT is that its a stick! What a stick you ask!? Yes,  all you need is a glass of water or whatever your drink of choice may be.  You unwrap the stick, and for 10 seconds you stir into your beverage.  There is no residue left to shake up and it comes with a very clean taste.  I recommend using it in juice, as the first time I used it was in plain water and it did taste just a bit overwhelming for me.  Its not a bad taste, but its a bit bitter, to me.  I also have crazy weird tastes buds, but that's a whole different story.

I used my first #pureLYFT stick about 20 minutes before I ran.  I had an excellent 6 mile run and felt my energy stay at a constant level.   The second use, I mixed in a cranberry juice, to help with the taste, and waited about 30 minutes, to let the sugar from the juice absorb.  I then did a lifting workout followed by a run and felt energized there as well.

I would recommend this product to someone who is always on the go and doesn't have time to grab a blender cup and measure out a prework out drink.  This is perfect to slip in your gym bag or your purse.  The #pureLYFT sticks come wrapped so there is no risk of the supplement falling out.  Its a quick 10 second stir and you are on your way to #sweatpink :)

Here are some of the great features of this product
  • Zero Calories
  • Clean Taste
  • Can be used with a variety of different beverages from water to freshly pressed juices to coconut water and cocktails
  • Vibrant Alertness
  • No artificial flavors, sweeteners or preservatives
  • Caffeine equivalent to one tall coffee

    Overall, I really enjoyed the fact that this is a #CleanCaffeine and that its very quick and easy for when im on the go.  However, I am a personal trainer, so I do have the time to sit with prework outs and blenders so im not sure how often I will be using this product as I have other supplements that I do tend to navigate towards.
