Chugging my electric grape flavored pre-workout was my afternoon ritual, but I didn’t want to rely on a chemical cocktail to get me through the day. I switched to taking natural supplement from The Refreshinq Co. and here’s what I found.
I am incredibly lucky to be involved in so many things. That’s a really nice way of saying that wow, I am so busy all the time. A normal day consists of waking up at 5 or 6am, working out, going to work and attending meetings, teaching fitness classes in the evening, volunteering at a local church, and taking care of my beloved, hyper dogs. Naps are a luxury that I don’t even have time to experience. While I love it all and wouldn’t change a thing, I also recognize that it’s a lot. And sometimes, I’m tired. There. I admit it.
Especially in the afternoons, it can be hard to get myself going to teach my kickboxing classes. It’s not very motivating when the instructor can’t stop yawning. To give myself a boost, I started drinking a pre-workout formula that came with a warning label cautioning users NOT TO EXCEED THE RECOMMENDED AMOUNT EVER. I chugged it down every afternoon and succumbed to that shaky, anxious feeling that always came soon after.
After a while (and after a good look at the ingredients label of my pre-workout supplement drink), I knew that I needed to change this habit. When I had the opportunity to try The Refreshinq Co., I was so excited to finally find a clean source of energy, pharmacist-curated and totally customizable to your body’s needs.
The Refreshinq Co. is a new brand on a quest to inspire you to never quit. That’s what the -inq at the end of “Refreshinq” stands for: “I never quit.” Their specially curated nutrient supplement packs and patches are made to power you through the day with more power than you had before.
I decided to take the Never Quit pledge and use clean energy from The Refreshinq Co to to help me achieve my personal goals. I ditched my electric grape-flavored pre-workout and switched to the natural energy sources in the Workout + Recoverinq Pack. It’s a supplement blend of clean, pharmaceutical-grade, gluten-free ingredients to give you a healthy dose of B-complex, B12 and green tea extract to enhance your workout. The post-workout pack contains magnesium oxide, CoQ10, amino acid complex and omega-3 for optimal recovery.
Right away, I noticed that this pre-workout pack didn’t give me the jitters or make me anxious like my other pre-workout did. This one kicked in with a calm, steady energy and helped me with mental focus, too. I felt like I was in the zone, but I knew immediately that I didn’t have to fear the post-workout crash. No crazy amounts of caffeine here, just clean ingredients and natural energy sources.
I actually noticed the biggest difference from using the Recovery pack. Even after the toughest workout, I was able to go through my day without muscle fatigue or soreness. When I was sore, it dissipated very quickly – much more quickly than usual.
Another option for clean energy is the Energy Support Patch. This patch has a time-release of all-natural ingredients, like guarana, green tea extract, B12 and CoQ10 for sustained energy. Wear it for about 8 hours and experience long-lasting energy – and no afternoon crash!
While I loved the effects of these products, The Refreshinq Co. isn’t just about products and service offerings – it’s about inspiring people of all walks of life to be their best selves. A deep commitment to community is in the company’s roots, and it’s infused in everything they do. I admire the brand because it truly helps people imagine what they can do when armed with the right attitude, the right nutrients, and the right people behind them.
