Lean, Mean, Running Machine! My Review of Beach Body Performance Supplements

Disclaimer:  I received Beach Body Performance to enjoy and review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave to review, find and write race reviews.






Unless you've been living under a rock, you've heard about the Beach Body Programs.  Beautiful men and women delivering you the best work-outs all in the comfort of your own home, right on your TV!  Beach Body is all the rave, and from what I hear it's been very successful for thousands of people!  

Beach Body also has a performance line.  It's NSF certified and is bursting with good-for-you ingredients!  

If you're like me, you're skeptical of all things supplements.   But, and this is a big BUT, I'm hear to tell you.....



My mind is BLOWN!   The Beach Body Performance Stack that I received was out of this world!  

In my shipment of Beach Body Performance, was Energize (pre-workout), Hydrate (during workout), Recover (Post-workout), and Recharge (nighttime).  I was immediately impressed with the product because I was given a complete guide to each product, a personalized note and...... this one is a big one - FULL-SIZE product!  In my opinion,  if you want someone to give you an honest review - give them enough product to do so.  Beach Body did NOT disappoint. 

Rather than listing all of the benefits and ingredient lists for each product individually, I will give you the direct link to these products so you can read if you'd like to learn more.  Besides, I want to give you my testimonial on the product and not just ingredients.  

One aspect of the website I found very helpful was that you could customize your supplements based on your goals.

My goal was to tone.


Once you put in your goal, it will customize the products specifically for you.  And, if you want to buy the whole system, you get a sizeable discount.  It's just fine if you only want a few items as well - they can be purchased separately.

On another note:  if you know a beach body coach, hit them up for the order, they'll thank you later.   

If you'd like to learn more details about the specifics of these supplements, please check out this direct link here.

I went into this product testing with a completely open mind, a serious diet coke addiction, and some willingness to work hard to gain some muscle tone!  I am happy to say,  due to the energize supplement I was able to completely kick my soda habit!  It's now been nearly one month without soda!  Just scoop, stir and GO!

I used the natural caffeine that is present in the Energize to give me the initial boost I needed to get started on my way to a soda-free lifestyle.   I was also impressed with the tasty citrus flavor!  Slowly, I used less and less each day.  I had no sugar crash or crazy caffeine withdrawal headache either!  My body thanks me!  Now, when I need the energize boost,  I can scoop and go.    Because my dependence on daily caffeine is gone,  I really feel the extra boost when I drink it!

Hydrate is designed to give us the extra electrolytes that we lose so rapidly during exercise.  But, I'd be lying if I didn't drink it during the day too!  It's a great flavor boost to ordinary water.




My absolute favorite supplement of this group was the chocolate Recover protein drink.  It is designed to give you the much needed proteins immediately after you exercise!  You drink it within 30 minutes of an intense workout to help facilitate muscle recovery and repair.  It is also proven to help reduce DOMS!

This drink tasted like chocolate milk on steroids.  It is so good.  It's not chalky and very easy to use - just add water and shake.  It's also easy to mix.   Plus, it delivers 20 grams of protein.   I incorporate it into my breakfast routine for a low-calorie, protein-packed punch to start my day!   This is a must try product!




The only downside of these supplements for me was the cost.  If you order the entire system as shown above, it sets you back about $199.  For cheap little old me, that's expensive.  But, you do get what you pay for and I have never had a better tasting protein supplement.   I have had these products for 30 days now and I have about half of the canisters left.

I have a friend who is a Beach Body Coach, and she has been raving about coaching for some time now.  I am tempted to become a coach just for the product discount.   I just don't think I can live without this supplement.  I just love it!

For me,  these products were an absolute success!   I have lost nearly 3 pounds,  completely gotten over my diet soda addiction and I've found a great morning protein routine I just love!

Do YOU use supplements?  What do you think about your system?  Have you ever tried Beach Body?

  1. I've been drinking smoothies--antiinflammatory--but I don't do a "system". Not my thing... Glad you liked it!

  4. Wow, nice job! I'm impressed you've been able to kick the soda (or pop as we say in Ohio) habit!

    1. I know! I can't believe it actually. I never EVER drank water. Only after a run or during a run. I was terrible!

  5. Good for you! Kicking soda to the curb is tough....I was a pretty big Pepsi fanatic, but I seldom drink it anymore. I have half a glass of it with pizza, and my fix is satiated. I've heard good things about BB products, but I agree...too pricey for my taste.

    1. I'm so happy that I got rid of soda. It's crazy how addicted I was. Sometimes 4-5 sodas per day. :( I'm even embarrassed to admit it.

  7. Yes I was a beach body coach a few years ago and loved Shakeology! You are right thought about the price. It was too expensive for people to order and the discount I got was great. I definitely want to try your recovery protein drink. I definitely need more protein every day!

  8. The only supplements I take are vitamins and fish oil. Awesome to hear this system led you to kick the soda habit. The only time I treat to diet soda nowadays is when I go to the movies.

  10. I do regular protein smoothies or chocolate milk after a workout. Never tried BB.

  11. Interesting that you like this post protein drink so much...I really haven't found one that I love. About as close to a post protein drink that I love is good ol' chocolate milk. I was embarrassed around a few of my healthy marathon friends 2 years ago that I drank soda. Peer pressure...I gave it up and just this week tried a sip of hub's...I HATE the taste now. Good news...Good habits can influence the kiddos and they almost completely have given it up too!

  12. I love my morning smoothie but don't use a particular system I guess you could say. It is a great feeling when you find something that works!
