It's February and that means it's almost time to reveal the top ten pre workout supplements of 2015. A late addition to this years trials is 'diva burn' - the women's pre workout from Pureline Nutrition. As the newest product to enter the scene, I knew it was the perfect candidate for an official BPW review. I'll tell you about my personal experience with the product- focusing on the flavor, how it performed for my workout, and then finishing up with a value assessment and final score. Without much further ado, let's get to it- my Pureline Nutrition Diva Burn review.

Finaflex named their pre-workout Stimul8 and dubbed it the 'shredding pre-workout'. As one of the most reasonably priced pre workout supplements on the market, I often get asked if Stimul8 is any good. Do you want to know the short answer or the long one? Probably the short one right? Ok, ok. No. This is not a good pre workout. And in this thorough ripping, I mean review, I will tell you in painstaking details every little thing that is wrong with this pre workout from the name to the formula to the packaging. Let's waste no more time and jump right into my Finaflex Stimul8 review.

I've been asked probably a million times what protein powder I've been taking lately. The answer is actually not what you might expect. No it's not Optimum Nutrtion's gold standard. And no it's not BSN Syntha 6. It's also definitely not the pitiful Britney Spears protein that I reviewed a few weeks ago. It's a product called 'trutein' made by little-known manufacturer Body Nutrition. And I'm going to tell you right now- it's the best tasting protein powder on the market today. In this review I'll go into mouth-watering detail about the flavors, the formula, and even the packaging. And as always I'll finish with some closing remarks about the price and value of this protein powder. 

Friday, 16 January 2015 02:21

Musclepharm Assault reviews are not hard to come by. You might be walking down the street and actually hear someone recapping their experience with this pre workout. It's that popular. But for the most part these are going to be reviews from guys- which means they are going to talk about how jacked up and 'swole' (insert eye-roll here) the product does, or does not make them. But what about girls? Can girls take Musclepharm Assault? That's what I'm here to answer. So get your popcorn ready, because this popular pre workout is about to get it's close-up. That's right. Musclepharm Assault is FINALLY getting an in-depth BPW review.

ACG3 By NDS Nutrition is a popular pre workout on the shelves of GNC, but does it live up to its reputation of being one of the most solid formulas on the market today? I’ll be the judge of that! In this comprehensive review, I’ll go over the taste, formula, performance, packaging, and evaluate the overall value of the product to help you decide if it’s the right play for you.

Saturday, 03 January 2015 19:26

Visuals Vi Shape Nutritional Shake is apparently the preferred protein supplement of Britney Spears. Thinking that she must be a relatively informed consumer, I decided to pick up some of this protein powder for myself and give it the complete shake-down on my blog. In this in-depth review I’ll cover off on the formula and ingredients, the taste, the packaging, and finish with my final word on the overall value of this supplement.

Monday, 22 December 2014 16:11

Zip, by Femme Nutrition is a pre workout supplement for women that I tested last week during the first part of my Christmas vacation. In this comprehensive review, I’ll tell you exactly how each of my workouts went with Zip, and focus in particular on its effectiveness. I’m also going to go into detail on the flavor i.e. how does this pre workout taste? Is it the best tasting pre workout for women? All will be answered. Of course I’ll finish up with a breakdown of the label design, and conclude with an assessment of the overall value. Alright. Femme Zip review time. Let’s do it.

Friday, 05 December 2014 18:31

Because there aren't many reviews of Lecheek Hottie pre workout yet, it was time for someone to step up and give this pre workout a thorough testing. Unfortunately for Lecheek, I'm not who you want testing your women's pre workout when you're entire product is, well, trashy. *sigh*. Negative reviews aren't quite as much fun to write, but hey, sometimes you have to put on your big girl pants and get down and dirty.

Wednesday, 03 December 2014 02:34

Energy Angel is one of those products that I just had to review. It's actually been a few weeks since I've had the chance to review an actual pre workout for women, and it's great to finally get my hands on a new one! Let's launch into it- my Energy Angel Pre Workout Review!

Wednesday, 26 November 2014 18:46

I’ve reviewed just one protein powder on my blog, and it was Jamie Eason’s protein. After sort of a ‘ho-hum’ experience, I turned to one of my favorite brands on the market today: Fitmiss. Powered by the supplement super-power ‘Musclepharm’, Fitmiss has churned out some terrific products such as the Ignite pre workout, and the Burn fat-burner. Since I loved both, I decided to give their protein powder a shot. Here’s my in depth Fitmiss Delight protein powder review!

Thursday, 20 November 2014 21:33

I'm so exicted to make Labrada Lean Body For Her Jamie Eason Signature Series my very first protein powder review. It's been such a long time coming that I add protien as a category on my site, and to have a product with such amazing reviews as this one come my way is the perfect way to kick things off. In this, my very first women's protein review, I'll touch on this products formula, it's mixability, any noticeable side effects or benefits, and, most importantly, the taste. I'll wrap things up as always with a final assessment of the product's value, and the award it an overall score. Without further ado- let's get to it!

Friday, 07 November 2014 22:36

Advocare Spark is a product that was recommended to me by one of my best friends of all time. She is actually a world class skier that I met back in college, and she absolutely swears by Advocare Spark. One day we were talking about my blog and she was like ‘wait- what did you think of Spark?’. And I was like ‘what’s Spark?’ And she was like ‘OMG you know nothing about energy drinks’. And so I felt dumb and knew I had to get my hands on some of this stuff. If there’s one thing my pre workout reviews have taught me, it’s that there is ALWAYS going to be something out there that you haven’t tried yet. That’s what makes the supplement industry so much fun, and is essentially why I started doing this in the first place. I love these products because there’s so many to try, and to find favorites for certain types of workouts. And you love them too, or you wouldn’t be doing your research here on my site! So I’ll stop babbling and get to it- here’s everything you need to know about Advocare Spark!

EHP Labs Oxyshred Reviews: Going in Depth

The very first fat burning drink review on BPW4W is Oxyshred by EHP Labs. I'm so excited to share my experience with this delicious new product with you. I'll help you decide if Oxyshred is the right product for you by going over the overall peroformance, the side effects, and even taking a close look at the ingredients in Oxyshred and what they do. If you're considering a new fat burning product give this in-depth review a read-it'll help.

Monday, 20 October 2014 04:37

Adding the best fat burner for women is a project that I undertook after the amazing response I’ve received from our readers after publishing the initial BPW top ten best pre workout for women last year. I decided to broaden my horizons and add a new product category to the BPW site that would provide deep analysis of a very crowded, and often times confusing and even intimidating space that is the fat burning category. I took a ton of time identifying which products are most popular, and accessible for us to buy. Using the same protocol as we did with the pre workouts, we tried almost thirty fat burning products before narrowing it down to ten of the best. I collaborated with my fifties to put together in-depth reviews on each of these products- and reach an agreement on how to order the top 10. Without further ado, here it is ladies- the very first official BPW top ten fat burners for women!

My Cardio Igniter by Top Secret Nutrition review

A few weeks ago on bodybuilidng.com, While researching my next pre workout to review for my site, I came across Top Secret Nutrition and their crazy amount of reviews for the Cardio Igniter Pre workout. This is how I knew that it was time for this product to undergo its official BPW review. Cardio Igniter is looking to capitalize on the success of other cardio-focused products such as NDS Cardio Cuts (one of my personal faves), and the Athena pre workout (my fave of all time). The folks at Top Secret have figured out that most of us do cardio, and we are always looking for a way to get the most out of our routine! Since I'm cutting down for my FIRST bodybuilding figure-competition, I have indeed been doing alot of cardio, and so it worked out perfectly that I found a great new pre workout for women to review. Without much further ado- let's launch into it- here is my review of Cardio Igniter by Top Secret Nutriton!

Friday, 19 September 2014 20:18

Liporush came across my radar shortly after I posted my review of NDS Nutrition's Popular Pre Workout 'Cardio Cuts'. I really did enjoy my experience with the company's pre workout, so I figured I should probably get my hands on some of their take on the diet pill - Liporush. I was pleased to see that NDS actually just released a new verison of their Liporush product- Liporush DS. So without further ado, here is my official BPW review of Liporush DS!

Shredz for Her Reviews- Don't Both with This Fat Burner

Shredz fat burner for women has mixed reviews all over the internet. It clearly comes from a company that has a solid grasp of the market- so I knew I had to get my hands on it and see if it could withstand a thorough BPW4W review.

Athena V2.0 Pre Workout for Women - Unico Nutrition takes the Crown with a pre workout fit for a goddess.

This year's best pre workout for women goes to Unico Nutrition's ATHENA v2.0. This product delivered the most amazing workouts I've had this year, and it did so while being completely free of artificial sweetners, colors, or flavors. I love the fact that it's creatine and sugar free, and doesn't contain sucralose. The formula is incredibly well thought-out, and has some really cool unique ingredients like coconut water powder and green tea. Tack on the fact that it tastes legit amazing- and you've got this year's best pre workout supplement for women. On behalf of all of us at BPW4W (aka me and my friends lol), congratulations to Unico Nutrition for taking home the top spot!! Read on for my full reviews. 

Friday, 22 August 2014 05:06

The second fat burning diet pill for women that I had to try was Nutrex Research Lipo 6 Black Hers. Lipo 6 black hers reviews that I had read to this point were for the most part positive, which was my main reason for trying it. I've been trying to cut down a little bit recently to try and get my core leaned out a little bit for a big independence day cookout, so I figured what better time than now to try out a new diet pill. Without further ado, here it is- the official PBW4W review of Nutrex Research Lipo 6 Black Hers Ultra Concentrate, I hope you find it informative!

Tuesday, 19 August 2014 01:29

Perhaps the best known pre workout supplement ever created is the c4 Extreme pre workout by Cellucor. This shiny little jar has probably sold more units than any pre workout in history, and is easily the most popular on the market today. While my site is devoted to women's supplements, I've had literally hundereds of readers ask me to do a review c4 pre workout- so here goes nothing!

NLA’s Shred Her Fat Burner- Strong Product from NLA

My friend Sean is the reason why this review for NLA for Her Shred Her fat burning diet pill was made possible. After sampling some of the most popular diet pills and fat burners on the market, I was struggling to find my last few candidates for the top 10 diet pills for women of 2014. It wasn't until Sean sent me the link to NLA for Her Shred Her that I even knew it existed. While his motivation for sending me the link was for less constructive purposes, he actually saved me the effort of tracking down this awesome new candidate for my diet pill reviews. Without further ado- let's get in-depth with NLA for Her Shred Her.

Fitmiss Burn - Another Strong product from Musclepharm

Overview: After reading all the positive reviews of Fitmiss Burn, I knew it was one of those diet pills that I simply had to try. After reading through the description of this fat burner, I became even more convinced that Fitmiss Burn was a prime candidate for an official BPW diet pill review. After all- the folks at Musclepharm (aka Fitmiss), claim that Burn can deliver results in less than two weeks. For those of you keeping up with my other women's diet pill reviews- you know that this is the exact length of time that I've been running the other products. Two weeks of consistently clean diet and hard exercise, followed by an official score. After the solid performance of Fitmiss Ignite, which is the pre workout offering from Fitmiss, I had high hope for Burn. So how did this diet pill stack up? Keep reading for my offical Fitmiss Burn reviews.

Super HD Reviews - The Chrome Champion

Cellucor is a company that has recently taken the sports supplement world by storm in the last few months. Reviews for all Cellucor products, such as their award-winning pre workout C4, have all been so overwhelmingly positive that I knew I had to give their diet pill a go- even if it isn't made specifically for women. I contacted Cellucor and confirmed that it was ok for women to take Super HD- and the guy that helped me told me that it was bascially made for women- so I was good to go. After having a particularly unhealthy fourth of July holiday, I was more than ready to try Cellucor Super HD fat burner, and give it an official BPW review.

Thursday, 17 July 2014 08:32

One of the final contestants in this years BPW4W top ten best diet pills for women is BSN’s Hyper Shred. After reading several Hyper Shred reviews myself, I was super excited to try out this fat burner from industry staple BSN. As one of the ‘founding fathers’ of sports supplementation, I knew I had to include an entry from BSN in my official reviews. Now some of you may ask- is this really a product FOR women? The answer is - no - not really. But after doing plenty of research myself, I discovered that Hyper Shred was designed for maximum effectiveness in both men AND women. Needing no further rationale, I got myself a 90-count jar and launched headfirst into a three-week long cycle with BSN’s hyper fat burner. Read on for the official BPW Hyper Shred Reviews.

Wednesday, 09 July 2014 02:08

Thermovex is a product that found it's way onto my radar through my own site search results. Sometimes I sift through the searches to see if my readers are looking for feedback on a product that I was previously unaware of. That is exactly how I stubmled across across Evochem Nutrtion's Thermovex product. After noticeing that Thermovex reviews are few and far between, I decided that it was a great opprotunity to vet this product and at least give people one review of it's benefits, side effects, flavor, ingredients, and more. Could Evochem's unkown fat-burning pre workout drink crack the impending top 10 pre workouts for women of 2014? Read on to find out how I liked Thermovex.

Monday, 30 June 2014 03:51

The reviews of Xenadrine started pouring in a few years ago when the product first made it’s way onto the fat burning diet pill scene. Xenadrine became a key player mostly due to it’s promotion from the notorious Jersey Shore character Ronnie promoting the product. I took note of Xenadrine’s fat burning product because it had the backing of Ronnie. I guess he was pretty lean, right? Maybe it would do the same for me- (hopefully without giving me the roid-rage). Keep reading for my Xenadrine review!

Monday, 16 June 2014 17:57

Hydroxycut SX-7 reviews are pretty common. But not on this blog. I started this blog a few years ago to give my readers some ideas on what pre workout supplements might work best for them. I've had several fans ask me if I would consider branching out into other areas and adding some other types of products to my review site, and although my site IS called bestpreworkoutforwomen.com, I thought it was a really good idea, and would give me a chance to try some awesome new products while providing some important feedback to my readers. You will two new exciting sections to BPW4W in the coming weeks- one of which is our new diet pill review sections. As the debuting review in the diet pill sections, I am so excited to give you my Hyrdrocut SX-7 reviews.

Nugo Nutrition Stronger Bars

I came across Nugo on Twitter. I was discussing my last protein bar that I reviewed - the Larabar - when my twitter friend @nikesoverheels reccommended the Nugo bars. She reccommend them after I had mentioned that the mighty Quest bar was my favorite. @nikesoverheels then brought the Nugo bars, and brought up that Quest bars are pretty expensive. More on that later- but the awesome thing was that Nugo was listening closely enough to take note of our Twitter conversation, and send me a few samples of their Nugo Stronger bars to try! I appreciate a brand that takes action and really interacts with people on social media, so I knew I had to give them a review. So let's get into it!

Wednesday, 21 May 2014 00:15

I've seen Larabar on the shelf for a while now, and when I saw the peanut butter cookie flavor, I knew the game was up and I had to give Larabar a shot. Here's my honest review.  

Monday, 12 May 2014 23:52

If there's on supplement that is raising the bar in the natural pre workout category, it is the Natural Sports Raw Tea pre workout. Now, I've tested the king-pin in this category, which is the awful tasting, average performing Vega Sport Pre Workout Energizer. Since I, along with others, was not adequately impressed with that product enough to outweigh the negatives of taking my 'un-natural' pre workout- I left my Vega Sport on the shelf in favor of Ignite. 

Thursday, 01 May 2014 18:37

Beautyfit Beautystrong is one of those products that catches your eye as soon as you see it. In its red and white wrapping, it stands out from the generic and in my opinion semi-sexist 'black and pink' themed women's pre workout drinks. While I wasn't blown away by what I saw on the Beautystrong supplement facts panel- I was intrigued by some of the unique flavors, and, hey- it's my job to try these things and let my fans know what I think!

Friday, 11 April 2014 05:17

Cardio Cuts Review by NDS Nutrition. How does this pre workout stack up against all of the other pre workout supplements on the market? I will go in-depth and put this pre workout through the ringer. Keep reading the official submission of Cardio Cuts to the best pre workout for women top ten of 2014!

Tuesday, 28 January 2014 08:02

Vega Sport's Pre Workout Gets the Official BPW Review

Vega Sport Pre Workout Energizer is another one of those pre workouts that is not crafted specifically for women- but is a product that several of you have asked me about. I know this product is very popular with the female audience right now- and so I knew I had to give it a shot at this years BPW top 10.

Friday, 03 January 2014 20:18

The NLA Uplift Pre Workout get's it's shot at the BPW Gold in 2014

NLA Performance is a well-established supplement company that has been making noise among women's athletes with their robust line of 'for her' products. As we continue down the final stretch of the road to our BPW top 10 pre workouts of 2014, NLA Performance has submitted their women's pre workout 'Uplift' for our official review.

Promera's pre workout for women goes under the magnifiying glass

As you know, we have been steadily releasing our BPW reviews for the upcoming BPW 2014, which we are incredibly excited for. The best pre workout for women awards of 2014 will be released at the end of February, when all of the product reviews will have been released. We have seen a tremendous increase in the number of products in the women's pre workout category, which will make the competition that much more fierce for next year. One of these new-comers is an offering from long-time creatine specialist company Promera Sports. Promera Sports (official website) best-known for their patented form of creatine monohdrate, which is essentially creatine HCI (hydrochloride form). Without getting into too much detail, the concept is that the HCI version of creatine will be delivered into the muscles quicker, and raise the inter-muscular levels of creatine faster than a simple creatine monohydrate product. With traditional creatine monohydrate, several companies will reccommend a 'loading' phase of a week or longer of increased dosages, because it takes a while for the muscular levels of creatine to fully saturate. Anyways, that is the company's specialty product, so I was pretty curious to see what they came up with for a female athlete.

Red Leaf Pre-Workout supplement Review by Integrated Sports Nutrition (ISN)

As we wind down 2013, it's time to look forward and ahead towards 2014, and a totally new BPW4W top 10. one of my new year's resolutions will be to get ahead and stop procrastinating! To get me off on the right foot, I'll be releasing a few of my 2014 reviews early. While the final top 10 will not be decided until all of the different entries have been tested vigorously, we figured these reviews might help if you are on the market for a new pre workout, and are looking for a first-hand review of some of these products. So without much further ado- here's the official BPW score and review of ISN's Red Leaf Pre workout.

Monday, 18 November 2013 22:30

I review three flavors of the famous Quest Bar. It's not hard to find Quest bar reviews on the web today but I'm hoping my experience brings up a few points that you haven't read somewhere else.

First of all- it was with incredibly high hopes that I tried the famous Quest bar. Seriously- how many times have you seen people RAVE about these things on Twitter. I've even see people posting recipes of quest bar desserts! They are everywhere! And everyone loves them! They must be incredible right!? I know this review is long past due- but here we go.

Ab Cuts Sleek and Lean Core Cardio Blast Review

I review the popular new powdered version of Revolution Lifestyle's pre workout product

Although the official pre workout for women rankings for 2013 are officially in the books- I figured that it is time to start testing the latest products in the category in preparation for what will be the second annual women's pre workout rankings. 2014 Promises to be an awesome time for reviews as the category just keeps getting bigger. My latest find is the Ab Cuts Sleek & Lean Core Cardio Blast. Try saying (or typing!) that ten times fast! Whew. I found this product at my local GNC- and knew I had to give it a try. I'm going to try a different format to my review this time. Instead of simply rambling about my experience, I'll try and break it down into a couple of different categories. I think the key areas to focus on are taste, formula, performance, and value to tie things together before giving a final ranking at the end. Lets get into it!

Evolution Bar Review

Flavor: "Pepita Almond, Sea Salt & Vanilla"

I recently tried an Evolution Harvest snack protein bar from Starbucks. As my readers know, I am what you would call a 'regular' at Starbucks. My day begins at my favorite 'Starbies' where I enjoy a cup of coffee or my pre workout supplement on work-out days. It's on those workout days that I like to get a little snack in. Some people train on a totally empty stomach, but I feel better with some fuel in me. That being the case- the choice of what makes the best pre-workout snack is sort of a tricky one...

Tuesday, 08 October 2013 17:42

FRS Energy Reviews

Solid Energy- Taste is meh

Ok so this isn't really a pre workout review- but there are only so many women's pre workout drinks for me to try- and- well- I thought I would broaden the category to include products like FRS energy drink to review.

Thursday, 03 October 2013 14:03

Perfectly Simple Gluten Free Bars

Zone Perfect hits it out of the park with the new Perfectly Simple Bars

As a longtime fan of the original Zone Perfect bars, when I saw that they had overhauled the product to become all natural and gluten free- I knew I had found my latest protein bar affair. The new bars are much more dense and satisfying than the old- and the fact that they are gluten free makes them even more delectable. My favorite flavor of the original zone perfect bars was the chocolate peanut butter (best flavor combo ever?!) so that was the one that I tried first from the new Perfectly Simple line.

Saturday, 24 August 2013 19:13

Papa Steve's Protein Bars

Overall Rating: 9.2/10

Well I started running short on new pre workouts to review- so I decided it was time to start-up the protein bar review section of the blog. While I was trying to determine which protein bar to review first- the handle 'papa steve's bars' came up in my Twitter feed! I knew it was meant to be. I contacted them via their twitter handle and asked if they would send along some bars for me to review. 

Thursday, 25 July 2013 14:49

Body FIt Femme Factor Reviews

Tenth Place: 'Body Fit', by Femme Factor

OVERALL SCORE: 5.4/10

We've teamed up with the good folks at Femme Factor and are thrilled to offer you a special discount. Use code ALLIE20 at checkout :)

 

Femme Factor Body Fit almost didn't make it into the top 10 this year. The Best Pre Workout for Women rankings are never easy to define past the top 3. Fem Fire, Ignite, and Toned were all unanimous picks for the gold, silver, and bronze. With the podium set, it was up to us to decide which products would fill in the other seven positions in the top 10. After much deliberation and a little bit of controversy- we gave new-comer Body Fit by Femme Factor the final spot in this year's top 10...

Thursday, 25 July 2013 13:43

Pure Fitness Nutrition Pre Workout for Women Review

Ninth Place: 'Pre Workout for Women', by Pure Fitness Nutrition

OVERALL SCORE: 5.5/10

Toned! Ignite! Fem-Fire! We have come across some pretty great product names in the women's pre workout category. Names that echo the core benefit of the product and add value to the brand. Pure Fitness Nutrition apparently couldn't come up with anything better than to name their submission to the category: 'pre workout for women'. It comes as no surprise that the product delivers as uninspiring an experience as the title suggests...

Wednesday, 24 July 2013 21:10

Black Market Labs Adrenherlyn Pre Workout for Women Review

Eigth Place: 'AdrenHERlyn', by Black Market Labs

OVERALL SCORE: 6.0/10

If we had to hand out an award for 'scariest to try', it would certainly go the Adrenherlyn, by the intimidating Black Market Labs. This is a company that features a gas mask on all of their promotional material- which is one of the more curious tactics out there. In any case, we knew that we would have to fire up this women's pre workout and see how it stacked up to the rest. You may need to put on your gas mask, because, well, this pre-workout stinks...

Wednesday, 24 July 2013 20:05

Chick Pump Pre Workout for Women Review

Seventh Place: Chick Pump, by Hybrid Nutra

OVERALL SCORE: 6.5/10

Chick Pump pre workout for women was the very first pre workout supplement that we sampled during this years testing for BPW4W 2013- and the inaugural test was unfortunately a relatively unpleasant experience. While there are a few things that we actually did like in this product- it is for the most part an unsuccessful foray into the female pre workout scene. So what exactly is so bad about Chick Pump? Where to begin...

Tuesday, 23 July 2013 20:52

Nitro Fem Pre Workout for Women Review

Sixth Place: Nitro Fem, by Maximum Nutrition

OVERALL SCORE: 7.0/10

Nitro Fem is a pre workout supplement for women from maximum nutrition-a supplement company with an international footprint, and several worldwide distributors. After coming across Nitro Fem online- the team decided to give the product a shot. We were not sure what to expect, as neither the formula, nor the flavors, inspired much excitement from any of us here at BPW4W. After all, after sampling the likes of Fem Fire, Toned, Fitmiss Ignite, and others- what was going to impress us? The answer- not Nitro Fem...

Tuesday, 23 July 2013 18:40

Igniter Extreme Women Only Pre Workout for Women Review

Fifth Place: IGNITER EXTREME- Women Only, by HIT Supplements

OVERALL SCORE: 8.2/10

HIT Supplements has burst onto the sports supplement scene in the last 12 months. Their iconic skull logo can be found across several e-tailers online as their brand continues its rapid growth. In keeping with the latest trend among growing sports nutrition companies, HIT dropped Igniter Extreme, 'Women Only' on the fitness world. Not to be intimidated by the brand's in-your-face style- I picked up a black and pink jar for myself and told the team to put it through the ringer. And that's just what we did. Igniter Extreme was up to the task and then some...

Tuesday, 23 July 2013 17:47

Pre FA Pre Workout for Women Review

Fourth Place: PRE FA, by Pink Nutrition

OVERALL SCORE: 8.3/10

We've teamed up with the good folks at Pink Nutrition and are thrilled to offer you a special discount. Use code BPW10 at checkout for $10 off your order!

Pre FA comes to us from the foundling company Pink Nutrition, which has a very 'mom and pop' feel in its infancy. The company has released their first product Pre FA as a pre workout supplement for women to contend with the likes of Toned, Fitmiss, and Fem Fire. The team here at BPW had to get our hands on a container of Pre FA and see if it could hold its own.

Fem Fire Pre Workout for Women Review femfire

Third Place: FEM FIRE, by XP2

OVERALL SCORE: 8.8/10

It was the fourth pre workout for women that we tested, and we were absolutely blown away. What you will read of hear from people who have tried TONED is that the energy is totally unmistakable and unique. The weird thing is that I am no stranger to caffeine- I drink a cup of coffee every morning, and have also tried other 'men's' pre workout formulas that have WAY more caffeine than TONED...
