Just because Progressive has a reputation for manufacturing health and wellness supplements, as opposed to hardcore performance supplements, doesn’t mean that they can’t be good at both. They have a wildy successful line of protein powders and bars, containing some of the cleanest, purest ingredients. Which meant that it was only a matter of time until they branched out a little further - enter SPORT BEFORE. The new, pre-workout powder from Progressive is an ultra clean and highly efficacious pre-workout supplement. The intention is that SPORT BEFORE helps to elevate your body and mind to bring out your absolute best.  There is a 5-stage ‘prep’ system: Lift Off, Zero in, Distance, Rush, and Aid. Within each stage are a combination of specific ingredients and specific amounts, which prepare your body to activate energy, endurance and motivation that drive you to success. That's what separates SPORT BEFORE, and leaves other supplements behind. Progressive is a well-known, trusted, reputable brand in the sport supplement industry. All of their products are professionally formulated, and they don’t just develop dietary supplements, but rather take a holistic approach to what they do; that is to say, they’re focused on the athlete as a whole – taking care of all your nutritional and dietary needs through their supplement line as a whole, so that you’re covered from a number of different angles. One of the advantages of Progressive is how they test their products – it doesn’t just occur in a lab setting with scientists and rats. Their testing indicates whether the formula in question will in fact have the desired effect on your body and confirms that it won’t create any problems or imbalances. Again, it’s about the whole body staying in balance, and one facet not messing with or overpowering any other.


First and foremost, everything Progressive makes has it’s ULTRA CLEAN stamp behind it. This means that their supplements are made with no artificial colours, flavours or sweeteners and as many natural, non-GMO, organic, sugar free, gluten free and kosher certified ingredients as possible. As for the actual ingredient profile, they’re designed to squash fatigue, mentally focus without distraction, push yourself longer by increasing endurance, enhancing oxygen and nutrient delivery to your muscles, and enhanced absorption of all the ingredients (because what good are the best ingredients if you can’t absorb them). With a combination of scientifically-proven, lab-tested, verified compounds like Green Tea Extract, Yerba Mate, Dendrobium Nobile, Waxy Maize, Beta-Alanine, Citrulline Malate, Beetroot, and Ginger (among over a dozen others), this product doesn’t try to impress you with random plants and roots which you’ve never heard of. It sticks to what science says will work in the gym. Nothing more, nothing less. The transparent labelling also lets you know exactly how much of each ingredient you’re getting.


Like most pre-workout supplements, the recommendations can be adjusted according to your tolerances levels. But according to the bottle, as directed, take BEFORE 30 minutes prior to your workout, race or sporting event—no matter the time of day. It mixes up quickly and easily in water. BEFORE is available in Cherry Lime and Strawberry Passionfruit Flavor, and each bottle contains about 24 servings.
