I am not nearly as active as I would like to be. In fact, I go through spurts of laziness and then I try to make up for it. Truth be told, I feel the best when I do some kind of exercise at least most days. Around 30 minutes for me feels good and then if I can get some walking in as well, all the better.
Even though I don’t do intense workouts, sports nutrition is beneficial to me. Hydrating well is always good, for everyone. Healthy energy boosters are great to motivate you for a good workout and even to stay alert and focused to drive long distances, get through a long or busy work day or to study for a test.
Lean, vegetable protein is a healthy choice as part of your daily diet, and it has muscle recovery benefits after physical activity. And, of course, all-natural nutrition supplements have been proven to support your immune system and provide better overall health that fuels an active lifestyle.
Fortunately, Shaklee has all of these products:
- all-natural supplements
- excellent protein sources
- vitamin fueled
- healthy energy chews
- unique hydration drink that’s better than water
And to sweeten that news, during the month of July, 2013, Shaklee is offering FREE MEMBERSHIP with any purchase. Now there is no requirement for membership, but you do get a 15% discount with it – and that is ongoing! July is your chance to get the $19.95 membership fee waived and be able to enjoy that discount + other incentives forever.
Here are some testimonials on Shaklee Sports Nutrition products. The first one is about both hydration and energy because Shaklee Performance gives you both.
Hitting the Wall
My niece, Jessica, is a marathoner who took a year off to have her 2nd child. When she returned to training for the Chicago Marathon, she started using Performance. She called us excitedly after the race and said, “I cut an hour off my best time and it is all because of Performance.” She told us that she froze small bottles of Performance and wore them around her waist and as she got tired, she would drink a bottle and go on. She told us that during the race she never, “hit the wall” (tired to the point of collapsing). -Tom F.
Next we have protein and my own two sons absolutely love the Shaklee Physique product for muscle recovery. They have tried other products such as muscle milk or other whey protein sources and say that no other product can compare with the muscle mass and recovery benefits you get from Physique.
P90X + Protein
I have been using the P90X workout program for the past two weeks now, and I would like to share how Shaklee has aided me in my personal fitness. The workouts used by P90X are extreme; they take a huge amount of energy out of the body.
I make sure to take Physique immediately after working out, to replace what the body has lost. There are many protein powder workout supplements on the market, but they will not give the body all of what it needs. The body needs Carbs along with Proteins to synthesize the protein into the muscles; without Carbs it will not find the nutrients needed.
If you look at many protein powders out there today, you will see a huge amount of protein, but the carbs are sadly lacking. What this means is that the powder will not aid you in muscle repair, because the body cannot make proper use of the protein you are giving it.
That is why I use Physique; it has the carbs I need to synthesize that protein and it tastes delicious too! -Josiah D.
This next testimony is similar to what I mentioned above and one of the reasons I love Shaklee Energy Chews – they ‘wake you up’! Not like a quick boost of energy, but a definite, noticeable sense of alertness.
I am a Captain in the US Army deployed in Iraq. I am writing this testimonial as a thank you to Shaklee and as a message to anyone seeking a healthy means of energy during the day. As the ISF Officer for the 130th Engineer Brigade, I am constantly coordinating with US and Iraqi organizations echelons above and below my unit. All this coordination translates into long hours in front of a computer and sitting in non-stop meetings; often times struggling to stay awake an focused. I have only used Shaklee’s Energy Chews for a week, yet on the first day I took it, I noticed not only an immediate boost of energy but also enhanced clarity of thought and increased motivation. -CPT Ryan P.
