Pre & Post Workout Must Haves + Giveaway!

Hi Everyone!

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I’ve been spending the week in Florida and it has been so much fun! My boyfriend’s mom has been giving us a run for our money. She’s been cooking up incredibly meals, kicking our butts in tennis and showing us all around the beautiful city of Venice. By the time 9pm rolls around, we are zonked and ready for bed! She is a real inspiration for all the health-minded individuals out there.
I’ve been trying to live a happy and healthy lifestyle for the past seven years. Blogging has helped me stay on track and it has introduced me to so many healthy and inspiring people. I love finding new ways to stay active, trying healthy foods, and doing small things that make me happy, like having my morning cup of coffee. Living a happy and heathy lifestyle is very important to me and I will never quit trying. I am partnering up with Refreshinq Co today to join their #NeverQuit Movement and introduce you to their wonderful brand. 
I usually use food as my energy source before and after a workout. I never thought about using anything else, but I was very open to trying something new. A month ago, I blogged about the struggle with my body not responding to my workouts, so trying out the Refreshinq Co. seemed perfect.

The Refreshinq Co. offers packs and patches that are both pharmacist-curated and customizable—so you receive what’s best for your body and your health needs.img_2096-1024x768-2
I spent three weeks trying out the pre and post workout packs.

In the pre-workout pack, you’ll find B-complex, B12 and a Green Tea Extract. It’s a perfect combo for enhancing your workouts.
You should use them 30-60 before your workout to allow time for absorption. I usually take them with a glass of water and a protein bar with peanut butter on top.
img_2096-1024x768-3In the post workout pack, you will find magnesium oxide, CoQ10, Amino Acid Complex and Omega-3 to help you recover strong. I can truly feel the difference the next day after taking a post workout pack. I’m not as sore and I recover much faster. It’s important to take the pack 30 minutes after a workout because that is when the body is most receptive to replenishment.
I like to bring my packs with me on my run or to the gym. It helps me remember to take them right away!I always take my post workout pack with wheat grass water.
The energized support patch has been a lifesaver on this trip. It’s helped me keep my energy up and feel energized all day. The support patch is all-natural and made with clean and premium ingredients. It delivers consistent energy all day long through the slow release of guarana, green tea extract, B12 and CoQ10.
The timed-release technology is too cool. It has a steady release of vitamins and minerals, giving your body what it needs, when it needs it. I love to put on the patch early in the morning, even if I am not working out that day.
The latex-free patch is great for workouts because it’s water-resistant. It’ll stay on through sweat or a shower. It’s latex-free as well. The patch is an innovative alternative to oral vitamins, supplements and powders.

I cannot wait to join the Refreshinq Quotient! Through a partnership with InsideTracker, they’ll measure your key energy and metabolism biomarkers with a blood-based analysis to scientifically optimize your full potential for your body. They will  pair you up with a coach based on your results to help you along your journey. I think that is the coolest.
I can see why so many people admire the Refreshinq Co. brand. They help people imagine what they can achieve under the right mind-set, when fueled with the right nutrients and how important it is to have a support system behind them.

I have been using the Refreshinq Co. products for the past three weeks. I took the Never Quit Pledge and it has helped me achieve my goal. I never want to quit living a healthy and happy lifestyle. I also never want to quit reaching my fitness goals during the winter months. I have been fighting through and I’m very inspired to stay on track. I encourage all of you to reach your goals and make a pledge to never quit on your personal goals. It can be anything. Whether it’s running your first mile, eating more vegetables, saving money, or supporting your family’s healthy lifestyle, take the #NeverQuit Movement, share it on social media, and inspire the people in your life to do the same.

“The Refreshinq Co. is committed to fueling a community with the inspiration, the strength and the grit to meet health and wellness goals and to never quit getting better. A deep commitment to community is in the company’s roots, and it’s infused in everything they do.”

    I would love to try the patches as a runner and a the owner and teacher of a gymnastics gym I am always looking for ways to keep up my energy w/o always going to caffeine. Currently I take spirulina to help with that but I am curious if patches would work.

    The energy support pack would help a lot. Trying to achieve the muscle I want, plus two kids and low/unsustained energy is hard.

    I’d love to try the patch. After my surgery I lost 15 pounds, mostly muscle, and I’ve been lacking energy ever since.*

    I would try the energy patch. Running around and working at my office and then coming home and being mommy and gf. I run out of energy quickly. So the energy patch would be perfect for that!

    I would love to try the energy patch. I had my thyroid removed back in 2012 due to thyroid cancer, and my energy levels have never been the same. I always feel like I need an extra boost!!

    I love the pre & post workout supplements! I feel like I have a hard time getting all the right nutrients in daily, and I think having those would be a quick, healthy, & safe way of getting them each day. I love when you do reviews like these! It always gives me something new and fun to try. 🙂

    I’ve been building up my fitness to walking an hour and a half everyday and I’m just trying to start running (super perfect timing of ‘My relationship with running’ & I loved it). There are so many that I think I could benefit from. I like the sound of the Weight Support Patch – super useful in boosting my fitness journey. A patch feels positively SciFi over pills. But unfortunately it doesn’t look like I can order to the UK 🙁 Here’s to hoping they expand internationally and SOON.

    The energy support patch would probably be right up my alley. I am a morning person, so around 3PM I cap out, and want to climb back into bed for a nap, and around 10 PM I am snoozing. It would help me be more productive in those sleepy hours 🙂

    I live in Florida and love all the Venice pics!
    I most want to try the energized support patch, 8 always get tired by the time 3pm rolls around so when I get off work at 5 I’m too exhausted to do anything productive. I think the patch could help for sure!

    I would love to try that patch. Energy is something I struggle with since I work two jobs and still try to find time to workout. I already take a lot of pills so a patch sounds so interesting to me!!

    Love the idea of just enjoying the little things to like a cup of coffee. Times like that let you sit and think about how far you’ve come even if you’re not exactly where you want to be. 🙂

    I really want to try the energized support Refreshing patch to help me push through on those rough days when you just don’t want to. My mantra lately is to tell myself to ‘just get up and do it’. No workout’s perfect, no day of work is perfect, but everyday you can push through and take something from it to be better.

    Thank you for your positivity! Love catching up on our blog!

    I would LOVE to try this, it seems all natural, and good for you! Not something like sugar which may give you a quick energy boost but wrecks havoc on your body! The biggest reason I skip workouts is because I am so tired all the time! I need this in my life! LOL

    The workout + recovery pack would definitely help!

  • Linda @ The Fitty

    I’d like the post-workout package, sil vous plait!

    I am curious as to why CoQ10 is taken AFTER the workout, and not before? I’m always used to taking it before when I did take it.

    Reply to Linda @ The Fitty
    • Taralynn McNitt

      CoQ10 helps with recovery. It helps with preventing muscle damage, and oxidative damage (usually follows exercise-induced muscle damage) It works to help stabilizing the muscle membrane which speeds up recovery time and prevents sore muscles. But for energy purposes, some people take it pre and that’s ok too.

    I would love to try the vitamin D patch because I definitely don’t get enough because I work inside all day. I run in the mornings but I get up to do so at 6 am so I don’t get any sunlight 🙁

    All of the products look incredible though so I would be happy to try them all!
