#FuelYourBetter Review: Vega Sport Pre-Workout Energizer

I was recently given the opportunity to try and review a Vega Sport  product through Sweat Pink & Fit Approach for their FuelYourBetter campaign. I was able to select which product I wanted to try...I chose the Pre-Workout Energizer (who couldn't use a little energy?) Since I run & workout in the gym and sometimes struggle with energy, I wanted to see if this would give me a boost. I was also very curious about the Recovery products, but I haven't "officially" started training for St. Jude yet...I have been doing some long runs & hill repeats, but nothing that has exceeded 9 I figured I'd wait on the Recovery products.

I received a box of 12 individual packages of the Açai Berry flavor.
Directions: Mix one pack of Vega Sport Pre-Workout Energizer in 1 cup (8oz) of cold water and drink 20 minutes prior to exercise to enhance athletic and metal performanc (directions taken from box/package). **I poured mine into bottled water to make it easier to shake up/mix up.
I must admit, the powder did not dissolve well & I shook it up HARD! The first time I took a sip, I got lots of grainy I shook it up even harder. It mixed up a little better, but stay dissolved...what I mean is...if you didn't CHUG IT, then it would become gritty/grainy again, so I felt I was constantly having to shake it.
Taste: At first it was not what I expected, it didn't seem very berry-ish to was an acquired taste (I guess I was expecting something really sweet). I will say, that after using it several times I did get accustomed to the taste.
Color: Once mixed up, the color wasn't what I was expecting either...I'm thinking it's maybe a pinkish or reddish color. The color was more of an orangey-brown.
Here are a few ways I used Vega Sport Pre-Workout Energizer to Fuel My Better:
  • Before shorter runs (usually 5-6 miles)
  • Before a strength-training workout at the gym
  • Before yoga & a short run


How do you Fuel Your Better?

After using the product, I noticed a slight boost of energy to keep my focus and endurance without a jittery feeling. This product, I feel, would be best for shorter workouts/runs...not so much for long runs.

  • plant-based
  • dairy, gluten & soy free
  • no artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners
  • slight increase in energy, endurance & mental focus
  • 70 calories
  • no jitters
  • hard to mix up/dissolve
  • not much of a berry flavor


  1. I used some of the recovery ones in the tropical flavor and had the same mixing issues. I let my dad try some after my review and he used a shaker bottle and said that worked really well and mixed it up well.

    1. I have a shaker bottle, maybe I'll try that next time. Thanks for the tip!

  2. Currently I have a belt but not totally satisfied with it!
