Beachbody Performance Review

Beachbody Performance is a line of supplement performance products produced by Beachbody the company. As we all know they are a massive company with multiple different programs and products to choose from. So the questions is what sets this program apart from the others that Beachbody company offers, and is there anything negative about the supplements? We will take a deep dive into learning more about the Beachbody Performance Line.
Energize: An energy supplement that comes in a tub. They would not provide the full list of ingredients, but only key ingredients (biggest pet peeve!). Drumroll please:
“Beta-alanine, an amino acid that helps buffer lactic acid buildup, which helps improve exercise performance and delay muscle fatigue. Low‑dose caffeine from green tea to enhance energy and focus. Quercetin, a plant‑based nutrient and powerful performance enhancer, shown to help improve endurance and delay time to fatigue.”*
Hydrate: A hydration supplement with minimal sugar, and chemicals. A list of the active and important ingredients are: “sodium, potassium, magnesium, and calcium to help maintain the body’s optimal fluid balance. Quercetin, a plant‑based nutrient and powerful performance enhancer, shown to help improve endurance and delay time to fatigue.”*
Recover: A supplement to help reduce muscle soreness, and promotes quick recovery. The list of active ingredients provided are: “Pomegranate extract, this powerful ellagitannin‑rich extract is shown to promote faster muscle recovery, while helping to manage exercise‑induced muscle soreness and improve strength recovery. 20 grams of time‑released protein for faster muscle recovery—and to keep feeding your muscles for hours.”*
Recharge: Is supposed to help your body with onset soreness, so you can wake up refreshed. The list of active ingredients are: “Tart cherry is shown to help reduce exercise‑induced muscle soreness and boost recovery. 20 grams of slow‑release casein protein, shown to help enhance overnight recovery by promoting muscle growth and reducing muscle breakdown, Branch‑chain amino acids (BCAAs).”*
Creatine: Meant to help improve high performance exercise. The only ingredient is: 10 grams of pure creatine monohydrate.*back to menu ↑
Is Beachbody Performance Easy To Follow?
Because there are so many options to choose from in this Beachbody Performance package it can get confusing to know if you should purchase it all, or just one at a time. The three most prevalent to weight loss are the Energy, Recharge, and Recover. It helps you bounce back from fatigue and soreness, and could give you the upper hand to staying consistent in the gym. For 8.5 oz. of the Energy supplement, you are going to pay around $60.00. Not cheap considering they do not even give you a comprehensive ingredient list for any of these products. The Recover supplement is more painful in price, coming in at $80.00 for only 20 servings. Lastly, the Recharge which is a nighttime only recovery supplement will cost around $80.00 for 1lb. of product. The users who have tried this product saw average results, many complained about price but not delivering the taste.back to menu ↑
This line of products will not guarantee weight loss, but it will aid in helping your body recover faster if you are working out a lot in the gym to lose weight. The prices are high, which does not surprise me (Beachbody is known for poor customer service, and high prices). There is nothing special about these products that you couldn’t find other places (and half the price). Do a good evaluation on prices per oz. and always have a comparison product when looking to purchase supplements like these.
