One of the best things about being a blogger is getting to test out great products and share them with my friends, family, and followers. As a fitness junkie, it’s like letting a little kid loose in a candy store. I seriously dig trying out new products and learning about the people and passion behind them.
I was stoked to play around with BeFit’s trio of BeFit Burn, BeFit Whey Isolate and Casein Combo, and BeFit’s Pre-workout. I’ve just started to get back into my training after a month or two off, so it was perfect timing for me to test ’em out.
I’ll start with the BeFit Pre-Workout endurance & energy booster, because it was my favorite of the three. I’ve posted on here several times about my terrifying experiences with pre-workouts in the past. I’ve had hives, the shakes, prickly skin, racing heart, you name it. Right off the bat, the powder is a very slight tint of pink – a good sign, and a lot less intimidating than its scary neon counterparts.
The taste, like the color, was good and remarkably normal. I drank it before soccer practice, a game, and my runs for about two weeks and felt a natural, steady flow of energy. I noticed it the most in days when I was exhausted from work but could still bang out a run at a decent pace or play a whole game without passing out. It didn’t keep me awake all night, and I didn’t have any questionable side effects. 4 stars here, my friends.
Next, the protein powder. I’m more of a naturalist (and vegetarian) so I avoid whey as much as I can. I’m used to vegan, plant-based powders, but I did decide to give this one a shot. I had my roommates drink it at night for a few weeks too, since it has a decent amount of casein that rebuilds muscles as we sleep.
The Fat Burner
I’ll admit right away I have some moral convictions about fat burners. Do they work? What does it do?!! Does it hurt my stomach? Like pre workout, this was my first positive experience with a fat burner. No tummy aches or pains. I’m still not convinced about the whole fat blocker thing, but these are all right. I will definitely use them with my cheat meals and feel a teensy bit better about feasting every week. I like them, and the cute packaging overall. 3 stars here!
