“Disclaimer: I received a canister of Metcon START pre-training supplement to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review, find and write race reviews!”
I have always wanted to try a pre-workout supplement but I have a very sensitive stomach so I was a bit reluctant to try one. When I was given the opportunity to test Metcon START for Bibrave I thought why not? What have I got to lose? I have to say I have had NO stomach issues at all! It has a light fruit punch flavor and the taste is not overpowering at all which made me super happy because fruit punch is not at the top of my favorite flavors list, but I really like the taste of this. It also mixes so easily and there are none of those unwanted clumps. Just mix 1 scoop (1/2 a scoop if you are not used to caffeine) in 12 ounces of water 15 minutes before a run or workout. I feel it gave me the energy I needed, right at the time I needed it. There was not a huge jolt but a gradual release. I had more than enough energy to get through my runs and workouts with no crash afterwards.
Metcon START is designed by athletes for athletes and it replenishes essential vitamins and electrolytes that your body needs during a run or workout. It promotes nitric oxide production, provides sustained energy release and buffers lactic acid build up. I definitely could tell that I got a gradual energy release which really kept me going.
Metcon Start is all natural with no artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners. It is paleo friendly and gluten free.
The cost is $49.99 per canister and that is approximately 30 servings so I personally do not feel it is out of line cost wise with other pre-training supplements.
