Be Fit All Year {review + giveaway}

This post was sponsored by BeFit. As always, opinions are my own.

Who likes to try new things??

I sure do-- So I was super excited to get the opportunity to try the complete BeFit healthy living program!

BeFit understands the importance of living a healthy life and strives to help and inspire individuals to achieve their best fit selves. BeFit has created a whole-life healthy living program that combines a workout calendar, workout videos, and nutritional supplements to help you live your healthiest lifestyle possible.

What makes BeFit so unique?

Their workout videos are completely free

Say What?? No monthly subscription. No "3 easy payments of $39.99". No rental fees. 

All you have to do to access the BeFit workout videos is subscribe to their YouTube channel. Easy peasy. And because BeFit uses YouTube, the videos can be played from any mobile friendly device. 

You may be wondering if, because they are free, they any good. The simple answer is yes.

The specific program I reviewed as part of the BeFit healthy living program was BeFit 30 Day Fat Burn.

I'm a busy person. I'm sure most of you reading this are as well. What I really like about the BeFit 30 Day Fat Burn program is that the videos are short, but still pack a pretty big punch. 

The videos range from 10-15 minutes in length. You can see from the 30 Day Workout Calendar that you start off with one video, but end up adding more as the days progress and you get stronger. 

If you commit to being present and working your butt off for the length of the video, you will absolutely finish each video with your heart pumping and sweat dripping.

The other major component to the BeFit healthy living program is nutrition. BeFit's newest endeavor is BeFit Nutririon-- an all-natural, clean line of supplements, which can help you achieve your fitness goals and live a balanced, health-filled life.

As part of my review of the BeFit healthy living program I was given full sized jars of BeFit Chocolate Whey Protein, BeFit PRE, and BeFit BURN to test. 

I love chocolate protein powder, and the BeFit Whey Protein made a phenomenal post-long run smoothie. 

1 scoop BeFit Whey Protein 
1 banana 
1 tbsp Mighty Nut Powdered Peanut Butter 
1/2 avovado 
some milk 

The BeFit PRE is fruit punch flavored and is very tasty. I didn't feel like I needed the extra energy before the 30 Day Fat Burn workouts, but it did give me a boost when used before a run! 

Wondering what exactly BeFit PRE is? Straight from the product page!

"There are three key elements required for a good workout: energy, endurance and focus, and that's what you get with BeFit PRE pre-workout supplement. This fresh, energizing, and clean pre-work helps prepare your mind and body for a grat workout. The foundation of BeFit PRE is composed of two powerful, clinically studied ingredients, eleATP and Betaower Natural Betaine. ElevATP is an extract from peat water and apples that stimulates the production of ATP-- the body's energy source. Betaine is derived from sugar beets and helps to improve muscle endurance." 

The final component of the BeFit Nutrition regimen is BeFit BURN.

I will be completely honest with you. I did not try the BeFit BURN. I wasn't too keen on a weight loss supplement. Not because I didn't think it would work, but quite the opposite. Somehow I have lost almost 20 lb since October. I haven't really done anything different. I've even been eating a few too many Girl Scout cookies recently, but I still seem to be loosing weight and am starting to question if there's something else going on. Anyways-- long story short, I didn't want to do something that could cause additional weight loss. 

The reviews I have read of BeFit BURN are positive though, and here is more information about the product straight from the website:

"Nothing replaces a nutrient-rich low calorie diet and a rigorous exercise regime when chasing your weight loss goals. But a little help in boosting your energy and fat metabolism can go a long way to achieving those goals. BeFit's dual-action BURN does just that-- it is a supplement designed specifically to give you an edge in your healthy weight management plan. 

BeFit BURN helps your body create thermogenesis (heat), which helps metabolize, or burn fat. It also supports healthy blood sugar level (already within normal limits), which is important for managing cravings and curbing your appetite. 

Unlike most fat burners, BeFit BURN works without over-stimulating the central nervous system, so you don't get that jittery, anxious feeling. 

To further support the weight management process we have included prebiotics, probiotics and polyphenols to provide good bacteria to the gut."

Overall, I enjoyed the complete BeFit healthy living program. The workouts were challenging, and the BeFit Whey Protein and PRE were tasty and effective. Can't beat that!
