Gearing up for an active spring with BODYARMOR Sports Drinks

Gearing Up for an Active Spring with Hydration from BODYARMOR Sports Drinks

Ours is a pretty active family, and we often feel like four people running in twenty different directions as we scuttle off to the gym, practice or just the rigors of daily life. Recently we had the opportunity to try BODYARMOR Sports Drinks to rehydrate ourselves after intense workouts, and we all loved both the results and the good taste.

More than flavored water or hyped up “juice”, BODYARMOR is legit. New for 2018, BODYARMOR LYTE Sport Drinks are packed with electrolytes, coconut water, vitamins and natural sweeteners to help us get back up to top speed after a workout. New BODYARMOR SportWater is pH8+ balanced and a special electrolyte formula.  As parents we feel good about giving these to our kids, because BODYARMOR contains only natural flavors and sweeteners, nothing artificial. And better yet, it tastes good – not like so many of those super sweet energy drinks.

Now as we gear up for Spring action, our family is all about bringing our workout to the next level. It makes sense to bring our hydration program to a higher level as well, which is what introduced us to BODYARMOR Sports Drinks.

Supercharged workout with BODYARMOR
After a strenuous practice, Ava needs her thirst quenched with a supercharge from BODYARMOR SportWater.


When Ava started competitive cheerleading a couple of years ago, I was quickly convinced it is not child’s play – this is a true sport. Ava works her butt off as captain of her competitive cheerleading team, and their practices are grueling. Believe me, I would be lying on the floor in a puddle after their intense workouts. With practice several times a week and competitions in mid-season, Ava needs to replenish her body more than us regular folk.

After years of private lessons and hitting balls against both backboards and real players, Sophia is back into tennis full swing (excuse the pun). And you know what? She’s pretty good! I played with her a couple of weeks ago and she wiped the floor with me – literally. She killed me.

With practice several times a week, she’s working up quite a sweat on those courts. Sophia loves BODYARMOR LYTE– Peach Mango, not only because it tastes really good but because it replenishes her very quickly so she can get back to the game.


Working out with BODYARMOR LYTE
After 40 minutes of cardio on the eliptical, Triton gets replenished with BODYARMOR LYTE.

An avid weightlifter since his 20s, Triton hits the gym at least 4-5 times a week. But that’s not all – he gets there by 4 a.m. Yes, four IN THE MORNING. He likes working out early to get his day started right, and then off to a fresh start for the workday. Because he starts most days with 40 minutes of cardio, he needs constant hydration.

For Triton, the product of choice is BODYARMOR LYTE – Cherry Berry. He likes the clean, fresh taste without being too sweet like some other sports drinks. Especially at 4 am.


Morning workouts are always better for Jon, because if he doesn’t get up and go then he won’t ever get there. A typical workout routine will start with 15-20 minutes of cardio and then on to a combination of free weights and weight machines. He rotates workouts to hit all the major muscle groups throughout the week, and leg day is always the worst.

Jon prefers BODYARMOR LYTE Orange Citrus because he likes a little kick in the morning, and drinking Orange Citrus after a workout reminds him of orange juice without all the sugar.
