Zipfizz Product Review

So I had another huge day of training Saturday - one that I'll never forget, but I'll get to that in next week's post. This week I want to tell you all about Zipfizz. Zipfizz contacted me weeks back and asked if I wanted to do a product review on their "Healthy Energy" drink supplement. I obliged and over the past few weeks I've been doing different things with it. I'd load up on it before a big training day, I'd recover with it after a different training day and one time I even used it DURING a ride. I really wanted to see where Zipfizz fit in with my busy and demanding workout schedule. The answer? It fit in during everything I did and was really impressed with the product.

Zipfizz comes in easy to carry vials so it's really simple to slip in your cycling jersey or throw in your workout bag. The best part about it though?? It has caffeine. Ahhh, yes - my favorite legal drug out there...besides maybe endorphins. But why not combine the two? Enter caffeine powered endorphins! Just combine 16-20 fluid ounces of water with each vial and enjoy all of the different flavors they have to offer. I know every one's tastes are different, but I must admit that Zipfizz tastes better then Nunn. Nunn reminds me too much of that Emergen-C stuff and although I really like some of their flavors, not every one of them is a hit with me. Zipfizz? I like all five flavors they sent me, especially grape. I thought I was a kid again, it tasted like Grape Bubblicous! There's a huge difference between this and the gum however, there's zero sugar and only 10 calories. And it has caffeine...

My breakdown of the TIMING of use:

Before a workout: I usually slammed one when I was super tired and UN-motivated to get the work done. Usually 20 minutes before I'll sip it down and before I knew it I went from slow and mopey to all smiles and fast! Seriously. Not exaggerating here. Feel sorry for people that don't use caffeine to their advantage.

During a workout: I used Zipfizz during my LONG workout days. So my typical Saturday I'll get in an hour in the pool, come back - have some breakfast then I head out on my 4 hour ride. About half way through my ride I start getting a little case of the grumpies. I'm tired, it's hot, I'm riding solo again...whatever. I reach around my cycling jersey and pull out the glorious vial of gold (imagine it glowing as I pull it out). I just pop it in my empty water bottle, fill it up with the water fountain -why spend $3.00 on a nasty Gatorade? Then I slowly nurse that bottle of gold for the remainder of my ride and before you know it the ride is done and I'm ready for a quick transition to my run. Zipfizz has saved me a few times from the dreaded BONK.

Post workout: I also experimented with Zipfizz post workout. See above workout with zero Zipfizz. Without fail about an hour after I shower, eat and start recovering from my workout, I start to doze off (just ask my wife). The problem is, I don't have any stinking time for naps! I'm a husband with two kids and a mortgage. There are things to do around the house! There are kids to play with! There is a wife to hang out with and talk to! No time to be a deadbeat triathlon dad. This is where Zipfizz comes in. "Aren't you taking a nap?" Asks my wife..."Whaa? Why?" I'm just getting in better shape hun, no need for those silly naps. You see, my body has become a well tuned machine and I have "adapted" to the workload, can I mow the lawn??" She rolls her eyes and I finish slamming down the rest of the secret sauce of Zipfizz. Wife happy, kids happy....although I may be passed out at 8:30pm on a Saturday night...

Highly recommend it.

Make sure to grab the easy to use shaker. It also allows you to water
it down a bit if you like your drinks that way like me (unless we're talking beer).
