Does the Protein Shake From ViSalus Work for Athletes?

The protein shake from ViSalus Sciences is not only for weight loss.  They have a number of products designed specifically for athletes.  This post is about one of the many athletes I know who are using the products with great results.

How Vi Can Work for the Serious Athlete

Let me start by telling you a bit about myself.

When Sherri Hunchak puts her mind to something-she does what it takes to achieve it- so quitting is not an option, and neither is doing it only half way.

For my Body By Vi 90 Day challenge this past January 2012, I decided to challenge myself with a HUGE personal goal of competing in my first Figures competition in the Novice show sponsored by the Saskatchewan Amateur Body Building Association (SABBA) to be held in early April in Regina.  In order to compete at this level, I knew I would have to have the discipline, dedication and hard work to get my body in the shape necessary to have a chance at a successful outcome.

The results I was able to achieve came from a winning combination of the right tools, and the right people to guide me along my fitness journey.

protein shakeI was very fortunate to have my friend Allan Sparks, a personal trainer and owner of Positive Energy Fitness, take me on as his client and he trained me 2-3 times a week for 45 minutes to 1 hour. The high intensity workouts combining cardio and various styles such as ropes, kettle bells and TRX was extremely effective and my body responded quickly in toning and defining the necessary muscle groups. Pair this with a great nutritionist, Krista Nikirk from Solutions Weight Loss and Training, and I was given the structure in the exercise, and diet that was needed to get the outcome I wanted.

I must say that I was curious about the changes to my health, the energy I would get from eating clean, and the minimal calories I was eating as the weeks progressed, but by pairing my diet with the tools provided by Visalus- I had amazing workouts and my recovery time was so much quicker. I felt great and was able to do it all natural!

If you have never tried Visalus – I must say that I looked forward to having my nutritional protein shake – especially after my workouts, as I knew I had muscles groups that needed to be fed and repaired and the shake would do just that. I was also amazed that I was not as stiff after my workouts and recovery time was quicker. Another great product that I also used  was the Vi Pak vitamin supplements which are designed to energize, vitalize and rejuvenate.

protein shakeThere were 2 additional products that I would have to attribute a large part of my workout success to, and they are the GO and the PRO.

I am a shift worker and some of my workouts would be in the morning after only 3 hours of sleep- and in order to have a great workout and have the energy needed – I always had a GO shot just before my workout.  During my workout I would hydrate with a bottle of water mixed with the PRO and these 2 products got me through the most difficult workouts  with the energy needed to push hard.

I found that I had better cardio performance, was not as winded and my pulse rate recovered a lot quicker between sets and between exercises. The products did exactly what they were designed for, and I did exactly what was expected of me, which led to the results I am so proud of.

protein shakeI lost 13 pounds over the 90 Day challenge and went from 17.8% body fat to 11.2% body fat.  I placed second in both my categories in the Novice competition, and went on to compete in the Provincial competition the next day.

I am excited to say that I qualified to compete at Nationals to be held this August,  and I am currently in the midst of another 90 Day Challenge, designed to add a few pounds of lean muscle and it appears that I should achieve that goal and hope to do well in August.

The Body By Vi 90 Day Challenge allows me to reinvent myself every 90 days. In 2011, I incorporated the products during my training for my half marathons in May and December. The GO and PRO were amazing to increase my endurance.

As a busy mother of three, and full time employee of the city of Saskatoon – having great nutrition for me and my family is so important and achievable with ViSalus.

    I’ve been surfing on-line greater than three hours today, but I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours. It is pretty price sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made just right content as you did, the net shall be a lot more helpful than ever before.
