As part of the Vega Sport Fuel Your Better campaign, I was given the opportunity to try out a sugar-free energizer from Vega Sport, a pre-workout dietary supplement designed to help me “get in the zone” to work out.
I know, right? Who’d ever guess that I, Spazzy McHyperPants, might need a little help getting my mojo on?
See here’s the thing. I’m a natural night owl. I come alive late afternoon and no matter how busy I’ve been, I’m simply not tired in the evenings.
But mornings? I will bark and I might bite, is all I’m saying.
You’ve been warned.
I can get 9 solid hours of sleep, and it’s still difficult for me to wake up and feel energized for a workout. My job being what it is, that’s a problem.
Enter Vega Sport Energizer.
Vega Sport is running a new campaign called #FuelYourBetter, in which they ask “What’s holding you back from better?”

I had my choice of products so I chose Vega Sport Sugar-Free Energizer. The Vega Sport SFE contains ten synergistic ingredients to help you focus and boost energy so you can power through your yoga class or lower intensity exercise, all with only 5 calories.
Vega Sport Sugar-Free Energizer is designed to:
- Enhance mental focus
- Increase energy
- Boost endurance
But, it’s formulated to provide just enough energy for short workouts, workouts lasting less than an hour.
Did someone say short workouts? BOOM.
Again, this is perfect for me, as I don’t want anything that will amp me up so much that I feel wired or jittery. I prefer a gentle nudge to a complete shock, and Vega Sport provided it.
I like the flavor very much – I chose Acai Berry – and it mixes easily with water and has a mellow, pleasant taste. It provided me with just the right amount of pick-me-up.
I like that their products are all-natural, plant-based, and dairy-, gluten- and soy-free with no artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners. AND – my favorite part – it’s sweetened with stevia extract, which aligns with my no-added-sugar philosophy.
I pass up offers to test and review products all the time because I have a sensitive digestive system and allergies. I read labels, and I won’t try just anything. The ingredient list for the Vega Sport Sugar-Free Energizer passed my ingredients test, and impressed me even more by including ginger root, which I use regularly to calm my stomach.
I lean toward the belief that natural is better, and taking care of myself by getting adequate exercise, nutrition, sleep and hydration are preferable to masking symptoms with supplements and enhancements. I will never rely on something like a pre-workout energizer on a regular basis but rather have it on hand to use only “as needed.”
And because of that attitude, I had this product for over two weeks before I even tried it! I simply didn’t need it yet. (I’ve been sticking to my New Year’s resolution of getting more sleep!)
But in that time, my husband used it a few times and gave it a thumbs up, and finally, this week, I had a true desire to use it.
I did, and I liked it.
Thumbs up, Vega Sport!
