If you didn't know, in addition to being a mediocre blogger, I'm a Zumba instructor. When I'm doing a class, it's my job to give 100% - to be enthusiastic and energetic and engaged.
But in addition to being a Zumba instructor, I'm also a mom whose sleep gets interrupted a bazillion times a night. And married to a dude whose 4:30 a.m. alarm goes off until six. (Grrrr.) And a regular person who, let's face it, just feels lazy from time to time. So sometimes when I need energy - whether it's for leading a class or simply getting through the day - I find I'm severely lacking.
This is where most people would brew up a big pot of coffee (or pop a K-cup into the Keurig, if you're fancy). But here's the thing: I don't like coffee. *ducks and runs away*
I know. I'm like a rare unicorn.
Anyway, my get-up-and-go has to come from other sources. And since cocaine is illegal, that pretty much leaves energy drinks. So when I was contacted to review Body Glove SURGE Energy Shots, I was ready to give them a try.
I like that Body Glove SURGE isn't full of a bunch of crazy artificial stimulants. It's the first scientifically-proven, all-natural energy shot made with a non-GMO formula that contains green tea, protein, honey, coconut water, and pomegranate. It goes to work instantly to provide quick, long-lasting energy, increased mental focus and alertness, and even a boost to the immune system.
It comes in three flavors - Tropical Berry, Grape, and Peach Mango - and I tried them all. I'm being totally honest here: as energy shots go, they're not bad. I wouldn't want to down a huge glass of it or, you know, pour it over my ice cream, but seeing as most energy drinks are disgusting, the Body Glove SURGE shots are definitely among the best. The Tropical Berry was my fave.
The important part was how it worked - and boy, did it work! I was actually kind of skeptical that something with only natural ingredients could provide the kind of energy boost that I wanted, but I was pleasantly surprised. It does work right away and there was a definite spring in my step during Zumba class that even my students noticed (I mean, I assume they noticed, judging by their groans of, "Are you trying to kill us?!")
Anyway, I love the Body Glove SURGE Energy Shots and I think you will, too - so I'm giving one lucky reader a carton of each flavor! Ohhhh yeah! It will come in handy once the new year rolls around and you resolve to go to the gym more often. (You know it's true.)
All you have to do is leave me a comment below telling me when YOU need an energy boost (and make sure to leave your email so I can contact you when you win!). I'll choose a winner on Monday, December 22nd. In the meantime, why don't you follow Body Glove SURGE on Twitter or check out their Facebook page or their website?
