Let’s face it, finding the motivation to get to the gym is hard. However you need to prioritize your overall health. I’m definitely not a body builder or am I trying to be. I just like to look good and stay in shape, and you should at least want the same for yourself.
TREAT YO BODY LIKE A TEMPLE.
First of all, let me start off by saying that yes, I am an ambassador for Celsius.
Second, I’m going to follow that by saying I have been drinking this energy drink long before I had a partnership with them. You all know I wouldn’t be hyping something up, if I didn’t think it was amazing. So when I tell you I cannot workout without some form of energy supplement, I mean it.
Long gone are the days of me dry scooping pre-workout before hitting the gym. I just can’t do it anymore man, its a hard life out here.
I work your classic 9am – 5pm corporate job, like many of you. The last thing I would consider myself is a morning person, so I like to get my classes in around 6pm after work.
Let me just say this that is definitely an excuse, but I just prefer to go later after work. It tends to help my mental clarity towards the end of the day and set up a nice night time routine for me.
My energy levels tend to be a bit lower later in the day. So I like to drink a pre-workout or an energy drink on the way to my class.
“Aren’t energy drinks bad for you?“
While some energy drinks are high in sugar and other junky additives. Celsius is a great clean alternative, which is why I’ve been drinking it for so long. Each can has only 10 calories inside and is proven to provide essential energy, accelerate metabolism, and burn body fat. They use no sugar, no preservatives, no artificial colors or flavors, and contains 7 essential vitamins.
Lets take a look at the main ingredients inside:
- Green Tea Extract
- Guarana Seed Extract
- Ginger Root
- Vitamin B
- Vitamin C
Let’s get down to the ingredients you might not be familiar with and the amazing benefits that boosts your results in the gym.
The green tea extract contains the extraordinary (epigallocatechin gallate) compound that scientists have found to boosts your metabolism and helps your body burn more calories during your workout. This compound is why you’ll see a lot of weightless tips tell you to drink green tea before bed.
Guarana seed extract is the natural caffeine coming out to play. One seed contains over twice the amount of caffeine than the average coffee bean and has great antioxidant benefits as well.
The thermogenic properties in Celsius comes from the ginger root. This creates some positive effects on the suggestive system as well. Believe it or not, it allows additional calories to be burned without the additional work, by slightly raising your body heat. Which actually helps burning that unwanted belly fat.
I have never heard of Chromium until recently but, it’s known to help control hunger. Chromium is an essential trace mineral that normalizes blood sugar levels and helps enhance the metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids. To make this short and simple, it will reduce your cravings throughout the day after.
It’s always important to remember that there is no one secret to replace diet and exercise. Celsius it’s not going make you lose weight without effort. On their site you can find science backed studies and trials to all of the benefits.
“What’s your favorite flavors?”
I think most of them are pretty good!
If I had to pick at the store or randomly grabbing one in a gas station my go-tos depend on if I’m in the mood for sparkling or still. Not many people like sparkling all the time so I switch up to the tea based ones from time to time. Here are my favs!
- Peach Vibe
- Tropical Vibe
- Kiwi Guava
Iced Tea Base:
- Raspberry Acai Green Tea
- Peach Mango Green Tea
I honestly love that Celsius is not a strong as pre-workout. I used to go to the gym and be twitching, itchy, and then stay up all night because I take it so late in the day. It’s perfect if you’re an evening gym goer like myself.
It has been a game charger for my workout routine, I seriously drink it everyday before my workouts and my Instagram stories will back me up on this lol!
If you’re looking for the energy and motivation to get to the gym, I definitely recommend picking these up and giving it a try. I’ve given a couple of these to my friends and now we have full blown addictions. We are seriously crushing these before Pilates.
It’s just a really great way to enhance your workout. I promise you’ll get through your class easier and get a better sweat. Most gyms carry Celsius in their fridges anyway, just ask anyone at the desk I’m sure they’ll tell you how amazing it is as well.
