The perfect Pre-Workout Smoothie. The perfect way to kick start your morning so don’t bother hitting the snooze button! There is nothing better than starting your day after a good night’s sleep with a powerful workout! Although, it doesn’t have to be a hardcore workout every morning. Listen to your body.
You could go for a walk around the neighbourhood. Do a yoga class or Pilates reformer class (my favourite) or do your favourite HIIT program. Now that it’s getting warmer too you can hit the pools! Lap it up people! We’ve come up with a super simple and nutritious smoothie to fuel whatever workout you choose.
