There is nothing better than this.

Do not drink any coffee nor tea. Do not touch any caffeine at all and you’ll find this pre-workout shot the best medicine ever created. No more than two per week to keep it’s magic.

I really enjoy taking these pre workout drinks they are effective and my favourite flavour is always in stock. Good price, quality and quantity in the box which I always buy. I always aim never to run out too!

Quality 10/10

These are becoming a regular staple in my fitness preparations. I love that they're shots as the size and content is just perfect, no fuss, I simply shake a few seconds and drink. The mixed berry flavour is my favourite! I feel it’s doing the job pre and during my workouts so a gold star for this standard of effectiveness alone!

Works great

This is the 2nd time I have ordered the 12 pack pre-workout shots. They are super easy to take with no mess or fuss involved. This cuts down on that preparation time of mixing, and this suits me perfectly! The choice of flavours is good I have my favourite which is Mixed Berry. I’m really pleased with the quality of this drink as I have bought different brands in the past and haven’t felt they have done what they’re supposed to do. I never want to run out so usually I order 2 packs at a time. Saying that I don’t know what I’ll do if my flavour isn’t available! Right now though, this little gem sets me up brilliantly for my training sessions.

Best pre-workout I've used

At first I almost overlooked these. I got one as a gift so thought I might aswell try it. Brilliant, can't recommend them enough and doubt I'll ever go back to a powder after trying these.

Brilliant pre-workout shot

I enjoy hitting the gym early in the morning but our Nespresso machine is pretty loud and could wake up the entire house. I ordered these just to take on occasion when I needed a pick up and they really do give me a huge energy boost around 10 minutes after taking them which last for the entire workout - cardio and weights.

Tastes great

You don';t notice, until you don't take it before the gymn. Amazing results and evolution, but be sure to not skip it.

Nice pre-workout for on the go

Review by Marcelo on Jan 17, 2023

When you are in a hurry or dont have much time to prepare a pre-workout, those small bottles help to keep up with the pre-workout. I recommend taking it at a maximum of 30 min before the workout. Usually within 20min I start to feel the effects of it.
