Back To School Nutrition

We know it's easy for your gym routine to get sacrificed for summer fun.

So whether you've stayed consistent all summer long or plan on kickstarting your routine this fall, we want to recommend some of the basics in getting you started.




School Essential Pre-Workouts | Return To Gym Energy

First stop in supplementation — pre-workout. While they all give you the energy you need to train heavily, not every pre-workout is the same.

Pre-workouts like THE Pre-Thermo help to burn fat with effective thermogenic ingredients while a pro-range essential like THE Coffee Boost promotes sustained focus without the jitters as a result of it's nootropic compounds (caffeine & dynamine).

If you're looking for your standard, everyday, pre-workout, THE Pre-Workout is guaranteed to push you the extra mile with improved concentration, energy, and athletic performance.



School Essential Protein Powders | Build & Maintain Muscle Post-Workout

Most fitness enthusiasts' goals are to build or at least maintain muscle mass. Utilizing protein powders is essential in doing just that.

Lucky for you, we've got an insane variety of protein powders to choose from whether you're vegan, lactose or gluten free, or just looking for a lighter alternative to traditional protein shakes.

Remember — your protein isolates are processed in a way that reduces fat and removes lactose, making them a leaner protein with a higher protein concentration.

Shop the right protein for your routine below.




School Essential Protein Snacks | Your On-The-Go Protein Fix

If you're like us, you like snacking a little too much — and in college, snacks come in handy when you need them most.

Whether you're pulling an all night-er studying for exams or need a quick fix before rushing out the door to make your 9am class that you're already late for, we've got healthy snacking options to support your routine.

An instant best-seller, our Layered Protein Bar comes in 3 delicious flavors, Birthday Cake, Chocolate Brownie, and Cookies and Cream — each packed with 20g protein and only 4g of sugar.

If you're looking for a lighter alternative to support a sensitive stomach, we recommend our Protein Wafers which are light and airy, but taste so dang good.

See more healthy snacking options below.



Command | Boost Focus And Reduce Fatigue While Studying

Speaking of all night-ers, does staring at your computer screen for too long give you brain fog and an eye-strain?

We might just have a cure for that.

A supplement for gamers, Command pre-workout has been designed to support eye health and reduce mental fatigue, packed with essential vitamins and minerals as well as 500mg of the powerful nootropic, Cognizin.

Altogether, Command will help you study longer with more energy and focus along with less fatigue.
