Vega Sport-Performance GIVEAWAY

Hey friends!

(FIRST OF ALL: Winner from Friday’s Giveaway is :

Congratulations Brooke S!! I will email you to have you send your address to the company so you can receive your two bottles, absolutely free!)

It was such a good, busy, and relaxing weekend! My sister came into town, so that was fun to have her and her husband around. I was SO tired though at the end of it, mostly from teaching and also tons of other things going on…..So on Saturday I went up in my weight selection during teaching BodyPUMP….wanna see ’em?

  • squats : 60 lbs (I had gone down to 55 for awhile)
  • chest: 40 lbs (first time!!)
  • back: 45 lbs

The rest of the class were ‘normal’ weight for me, but I was SO happy to be able to teach and lift heavy weights during that class (both muscle endurance and muscle strength). And in case you’re wondering, during the entire class we lift more than 800 reps! #nojoke

But, I must say, I was able to do this weight selection AFTER taking a spin class ONLY because of the Vega Sport Performance Products I was sent. This stuff is GOOD and legit and plant-based and chock full of protein and awesome.

Sounds good, eh?!

Want to hear more?? There is SOMEthing in it for you too 😉

After my explanation and review, ONE lucky winner gets an entire tub of Vega Sport Recovery (making you recover better, faster, and stronger after any of your workouts!) Oh, and did I say all the Vega products are plant-based, vegan, and dairy free. So it makes anyone happy!

Vega Sport Performance Review

The Vega products I was sent were separated into three categories:

  1. Prepare
  2. Sustain
  3. Recover

Each bar, drink mix, or protein powder was designed to either prepare the athlete for the workout ahead, enhance the athlete’s performance during the workout or race, or help the athlete’s body recover from the workout so he/she can return quicker, faster, and stronger.

It sounded very awesome to me. And I couldn’t wait to hit up the workouts after getting my box!

After trying a bunch of the different drink mixes, powders, and bars, I was SO impressed.

My favorites were :

  • The acai berry pre-workout mix for water from the PREPARE group. It was tasty! And it helped me teach Zumba with the zest I needed (on a day I had not gotten much sleep and needed a major boost)!
  • The pom-berry electrolyte hydrator mix from the SUSTAIN group (I drank it during a spin class). I felt good, awake, strong, and able to do the hard sprints quite easily. Plus, it was a tasty addition to my water (no calories).
  • The chocolate coconut protein bar and the chocolate saviseed bar from the RECOVER group. These were SO tasty. I will definitely buy these again. They were delicious, full of 15 grams protein (plant-based), and only 240 calories. They tasted decadent and delicious but were quite satisfying!

I also liked the protein powders (berry, vanilla, and chocolate), but the bars were my ultimate favorite! (The vanilla powder was a tad bit too chalky for my taste, just fyi).

Oh, by the way, I did not have a chance to try out the gels yet (I don’t do gels for classes, only long runs, and have not done a run longer than 8 miles during this time), but they look awesome!

Vega is an awesome company and is dedicated to formulating their products based on all-natural ingredients and is committed to all-plant products. SO cool. Thank YOU, Vega Sport for allowing me the opportunity to try your awesome products!

And now it’s all about YOU, my friends……If you are a serious athlete or even someone who likes to workout, these performance products are for you!

{blurry shot-but I was enjoying my VEGA at my parents’ house–they liked it too!!}

  19. Great giveaway. (I tweeted about it too.)

    I’m trying to discover what to reach for after my long run. My most recent 9-mile run had me feeling a bit woozy afterwards, so I could definitely use some Vega goodness to add to my post-fuel routine. I don’t think I fueled with enough carbs after. Lesson learned!

  21. Tweeted! @MotherRunnerSue

  25. Samantha says:

    I’ve always debated what was the best to eat before or after a workout, and I usually try and stick with protein. I love a PB sandwich after a good workout, and I’ve heard that chocolate milk is good after lifting. Not sure if it’s accurate, but I’ll take any excuse for a glass of chocolate milk!

  26. i love either having some chocolate milk or an egg sandwich after my long runs! :)

  27. Post workout smoothie!

  29. Jennifer K says:

    I work out early in the morning, so I like to eat a yogurt or drink a chocolate milk immediately after I get home. Then I might have a grapefruit w/cinnamon with some cereal or wheat toast w/pb or EB eggwhites. If I a am really organized and have time, I might make a smoothie instead.

  30. Jennifer K says:

    I tweeted this and it automatically posts to my Facebook as well!

  37. Jordan K says:

    I usually only have a glass of milk or maybe a Laraber after I workout, so I’d love try the Vega Sport’s products! Especially if they are formulated for aiding in recovery because I don’t think I am very good about recovering properly all the time.
