I’m really excited to finally find a sports nutrition brand with products that work for me and at the same time promotes a mentality that’s perfect for my story. I’m very particular about what I put in my body, so our newest product, Ready® Sports Drink is a game changer for me, because it provides carbs for energy from super fruits instead of from refined sugar. It has No Added Sugars and an electrolyte mix that more completely replaces what I lose when I’m working out, practicing or on Game Day! Ready® Water is another perfect fit for my clean nutrition plan with NO sugar and all-natural ingredients. It gives me the protein I crave without weighing me down during my workouts and throughout the day. Plus, there’s a mentality behind the brand that really speaks to me – that it’s not where you start, but where you finish that counts… because HARD WORK WINS!
