About a year ago I committed to using Beachbody Energize before every single workout. I had tried some other pre-workout supplements, and I felt jittery and like my heart was pounding. I hated them. I wanted to find one powerful enough to boost my results and energy though. That’s where Energize came into play.

What Happened When I Took It Consistantly?
When I started 80 Day Obsession, I made the commitment to use the Beachbody Performance Line.
I skipped the creatine and hydrate, but I loved Energize, Recover, and Recharge.
Energize helped me get started every morning, since I wake up at 5 AM to workout out. It also helped me pump out a few extra reps every time!!
Recover & Recharge help with muscle soreness and lean muscle growth.
Does Beachbody Energize Have Caffeine?
Yes, it does contain caffeine. It’s 100mg per scoop.
While I normally am a coffee drinker, I didn’t feel jittery or overly hyped on Energize like on other supplements.

When Should You Take It?
To get the most out of the pre-workout supplements, you’ll want to take it 30-40 minutes before working out.
With that being said, I usually start to feel the effects starting as early as 10 minutes after taking it.
Why Does A Pre-Workout Supplement Make You Tingle?
Some pre-workout supplements, including this one, can make you tingle. The tingling occurs because of the beta alanine in it.
I actually really enjoy the tingles since it lets me know the Energize has kicked in. It’s a harmless condition called “paresthesia.” Normally, it happens in higher doses of beta alanine, but you may experience it with the 800 mg.
I have had clients who don’t feel the tingles at all, and some who do. It just depends on your body’s sensitivity to it.
How Much is Beachbody Energize?
It’s about $50 for 40 scoops or $1.25 a scoop. Most pre-workout supplements using high-quality ingredients and no fillers are around that price range.
