I’ve been enjoying the benefits of Ready® Water for almost two years and I really like the product. More and more each year of my career, I’ve grown to realize just how important the right nutrition products can be in elevating my performance. Ready® Sports Drink, our newest product, provides the most functional energy and hydration I need to train and play hard throughout the day, every day! I LOVE the Ready mentality of outworking your challenges, focusing on what you can control, and finding a way to achieve your goals. It describes my story perfectly. Now with both Ready Water and Ready Sports Drink apart of the brand, I look forward to continuing to work hard and be involved with Ready and its mission of assisting athletes in achieving their goals.
