Hike Up Your Performance On and Off the Trail

Staying active and spending time outside are always good ideas, so why not do both at the same time? Sure, hiking on a trail or taking a walk are great ways to get outside and get moving, but oftentimes, we feel wiped out and find ourselves craving snacks before we’re halfway up the mountain. At Isagenix, we’re proud to offer convenient nutritional options that are sure to sustain you while you’re on the go! Here are some of our best tips and snacks to help you before, during, and after your outdoor exercise.

Before you go…

While you’re preparing to hit the trail, you need to up your endurance. For the perfect boost, try AMPED™ NOx, which can prepare you for your trek. NOx consists of vegetable extracts from beets, red spinach, and celery to help support the body’s nitric oxide production and healthy blood flow,† which are critical when hiking at high altitudes.

For a quick, nutritious way to fill up on 28 grams of high-quality protein, grab an AMPED Protein Bar (not to be confused with our tasty IsaLean™ Bars). These bars support lean muscle building and taste great! Make sure that you buy your AMPED Protein Bars today, because through March 31, when you order one box in Cookie Dough flavor or Strawberries & Cream flavor, you can get a second box half off!

While you’re on the trail…

One of the most important things to remember when you are doing any type of outdoor activity is to stay hydrated, and AMPED Hydrate can help you with that. AMPED Hydrate comes in three delicious flavors and can replenish the nutrients you lose during your hike, run, bike, or swim. Pour it in your water bottle before heading out for the perfect sports drink to provide you with proper hydration on or off the hiking trail.

To sustain energy and maintain endurance midhike, throw some AMPED Fuel in your backpack. This tasty gel contains carbohydrates from apple puree, agave, and molasses, which can help refuel you if your energy starts to dip while you’re headed up the trail. And don’t worry about consuming carbs during your hike – a long hike burns many calories, so you’ll need to fuel up halfway through!

Once you’re back on flat land…

Any type of endurance exercise that lasts more than an hour could cause your muscles to break down. Muscle recovery is vital, and AMPED Recover can support muscle recovery after spending hours hiking and climbing.†

Feeling a bit hungry once you’ve finished? Grab a bag of Whey Thins™ to crush those post-trek hunger pangs. Packed with 10 grams of protein, Whey Thins can not only help satisfy your cravings, but these bite-sized 100-calorie crackers are a nutritious snack option.

Next time you plan to hit the trail, don’t go unprepared! Remember to take your favorite on-the-go Isagenix products with you so you can tackle your outdoor activities with enough fuel and focus to endure, recover, and do it all again tomorrow.

“Before Isagenix, I was very unhealthy and lethargic. My feet, legs, and back hurt all the time. I had no energy and considered myself the ultimate couch potato. 
Fortunately, I was introduced to Isagenix by a family member’s Facebook post, which stated he had lost 45 pounds* in a short time. I started using the system myself in November 2015. In the first month, my wife, Laurie, had seen such a change in me that she asked for her own Isagenix box. 
Within a few months, we saw results. I released 40 pounds, Laurie released 20 pounds, and both of us gained a lot of energy and felt much better. Since then, we have reached even more impressive weight loss goals. I have released 104 pounds, and Laurie has released 50 pounds total.* We have also been working out together for over 2 ½ years. We both enjoy using the AMPED™ line as well as many other healthy aging products and love how all the Isagenix products work well together to fit our ever-changing needs. 
With Isagenix, Laurie and I have been able to achieve much more than we ever expected. Our whole family is active now. We go skiing, snowshoeing, and hiking in the mountains near our home together. I have even been running obstacle course races with our oldest daughter, Kayla. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We are truly blessed to be able to share Isagenix with family, friends, and many others in our lives today. We continue to lead a positive, productive, and healthy lifestyle and look forward to achieving our long-term wellness goals with Isagenix.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Results you can’t get anywhere else. #isagenix
