Fuel The Workout
There are a whole host of products available on the market for those hitting the gym, taking part in physical activity or playing sports that promise an energy boost and enhanced performance from ‘natural’ sources to rival traditional fizzy energy drinks. Pre-workout blends, post-workout mixes and protein shakes all come with radical marketing claims but are, for the most part, full of synthetic ingredients that focus more on an immediate burst of energy rather than anything longer-lasting. To make it worse, there’s little known about the long-term effects of using such ingredients, but studies have linked them to anxiety disorders, sleeping issues, high blood pressure, kidney damage and chest pain – and that’s before you consider the headaches, dehydration, cramps, reddening skin and jitters you’ll experience as you ‘come down’ from them!
Instead, any PT or fitness professional worth their salt will recommend a tailored diet and plenty of water to help you achieve your desired results. Off Grid dissolves directly into your water and unlike most supplements and energy drinks, is entirely natural and doesn’t contain anything to induce negative side effects that could hinder, rather than improve, your intended results.
You don’t need to take our word for it; the professionals agree. Fitness Instructor Jenny Wollen relies on Off Grid over more traditional energy products, saying “I have used Off Grid for the last year and can definitely say it has helped me perform at a higher level. I find the effects can easily last up to 3 hours each time which is a great benefit, especially when you're as active as me. I find myself taking it 15 minutes before exercise so when warming up and by continuously drink water after helps to extend the effects!”
