I was recently contacted by the very nice people at Vega Sport and given the opportunity to try one of their new pre-workout supplements as part of their #fuelyourbetter campaign. I received the Vega Sport Sugar Free Pre-Workout Energizer, a pre-workout drink mix sporting a unique blend of plant-based performance-improving ingredients.
I’ve never been one to really drink supplements but I was willing to give it shot. Before my morning runs I usually have a quick espresso and then head out the door, but I started replacing my beloved espresso with the Vega Sport Sugar Free Pre-Workout Energizer mix for shorter runs.
To be honest, I’m not a huge fan of lemon lime flavored anything. I was a bit disappointed when I didn’t receive the acai berry flavor to try because I heard it was SO good, but to be honest, the lemon-lime flavor isn’t too bad. I’m not in love with it but it’s definitely drinkable.
As far as the effects of the Vega Sport Sugar Free Pre-Workout Energizer, I thought it was great! Not quite the same as coffee but it definitely gave me a little extra boost of energy to run in the morning. I also love that it’s made with stevia so it’s sugar free.
For me, what ended up being the best way to drink it, was to mix up a packet with water and then hop on the subway to whatever yoga/dance/crossfit class I was headed to that evening. I found the drink to be the perfect amount of energy to get through the class, but not so bad that I would be wired and up all night.
SO, would I purchase this with my own money? Probably not. Like I said, I’m not a huge lemon lime fan and it’s definitely a little expensive for a product I’m not in love with, but maybe I’d feel otherwise about the acai berry flavor.
Have you tried other Vega products? I’m interested in trying the protein powder, so I may be purchasing that when my current protein powder is finished.
Please note, I received this product for free, but all opinions are my own.
