What is Pre-workout and why take it?
Do you feel unmotivated, tired or not getting 100% out of your workouts? Then a pre-workout might be the answer to your problems. Supporting all fitness levels, pre-workouts are designed to increase energy levels, mental focus and boost your workout performance. As the name suggests, most people take pre-workout 15 - 30 mins prior to working out. There are two varieties of pre workouts: products with stimulants and caffeine or without stimulants and no caffeine. Pre-workouts are a powder form supplement we suggest mixing it with 500 ml of cold water in a shaker, or stir well in a cup and you're ready to go.
The Benefits of Pre-workouts:

The Cult Fave DESTINY
Destiny is a pre-workout containing the main active ingredient Acetyl L-Carnitine. It contains the perfect amount of caffeine (150mg per serve), to help kick start your morning, provide a ‘pick-me-up’ during the day or makes an ideal beverage to consume before any physical activity. Destiny is available in an array of tasty flavours and does not incorporate the “tingle” ingredient , beta-alanine. So no need to worry about that “pins and needles” feeling. Destiny is also vegan friendly, gluten free and is recommended to be taken in the morning to ensure active ingredients work throughout the day, and also before any activity. It’s always best to assess your caffeine tolerance, as some individuals may react differently to varying amounts of caffeine. Start with 1/2 scoop and work your way up to 1 scoop.
Three-D is our caffeine free pre-workout designed to increase your workout performance, muscle strength and endurance with the added muscle pump benefit. The main active ingredient L-Citrulline increases blood circulation to naturally bring greater amounts of nutrients, water and oxygen to the working muscles. This will assist in greater waste disposal including the removal of lactic acid. If you are looking for muscle pumps, endurance and strength without caffeine or if you train late in the evening and are caffeine sensitive but still want that muscle performance and focus, then Three-D is your pre-workout.
Being our high energy pre-workout with 300mg of caffeine per serve, Legacy pre-workout improves energy, focus and provides pumps for an intense workout. Legacy also contains L-Citrulline, Agmatine and Beta-Alanine, providing enhanced athletic performance by reducing acidity (lactic acid) in your muscles for improved recovery during high-intensity exercise. Beta-Alanine is a performance ingredient but also provides a tingling sensation to the skin which is nothing to be worried about. This sensation varies with individuals, and is short lived. So if you are looking for a pre-workout to supercharge your engine, look no further than Legacy.
