Rated 4 out of 5 by samvdb Works well, but no fun to drink.
I tried this product for the first time today to do a legs and abs circuit and it definitely made it easier to transition quickly between exercises. I had tons of energy. I'm a 17 year old female, 5'7" and 120 lbs so I went light with one scoop in 4 oz of water. However, even just finishing the whole 4 oz was rough. I'm not partial to sour/bitter flavors so of course you may not agree and should try it for yourself, but drinking it was horrible. Took me back to taking medicine as a kid. The benefits outweigh the nasty taste though. And with the special offer, the price isn't that bad. I'm for sure going to continue using the product and just power through drinking it, like a champ. If you're turned off towards the product from this review, say you're not into sour flavors either, have no fear. It's not that bad when you knock it back like a shot. I was merely warning the masses.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sarah_m worked really well but tastes horrible
as soon as i got my package in the mail i couldnt wait to try it out with my insanity work out that night. i decided that since i am a female roughly 125lbs i would only take one scoop to start and see how it would work. i took one scoop around 6pm and began my work out around 6:30pm. i didnt expect the taste to be all sunshine and roses, but it is one of the lesser attractive tasting pre work out drinks i've tried. it's lemon lime taste isnt as bad if you chug it down pretty quickly and just get it over with, kind of like taking cough syrup. within about 15 mins i felt more energized and ready to go! i made it through a lot more of the program without taken breaks, like i often do with my other prework out drinks. i think i definitely gives you a boost of energy, the only other down side is a could not fall asleep that night for hours! i dont know if it was because i had too much of the pre game work out drink or just had a lot of energy that day. i'm going to try taking it a little earlier next time and see how that goes. over all great products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by datnewnew Amazing Stuff
I had been searching for something to boost my endurance during my Insanity workout and I found it. I've done Insanity twice before and never used a pre-workout drink and always did pretty good with the workouts. I've started Insanity for the third time now and saw this new product that was supposed to help you through the workout. Well I figured that I would give it a shot and it's amazing and is more than what I expected. Besides the bitter taste there is nothing I can say bad about the drink. It works and I don't every want to do a extreme workout without having it. I've never been able to do an Insanity workout like I have using this. I would take breaks a lot but with this I rarely have to but doing an intense workout you expect to stop every once in a while. So I would recommend to anyone who wants to get the most out of their workout. The focus and energy you get from it is amazing. The best thing of all is no jitters after the workout like most energy supplements. THIS STUFF IS AMAZING BUT DON'T TAKE MY WORD TRY IT YOURSELF AND YOU WON'T REGRET IT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by J Dog Very effective to extend energy through workout
Used only 1 scoop and was able to complete Max Interval Circuit session 98%. Never had been able to get past about 85%. Very effective to extend energy and endurance through entire workout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Turbomoma Does just what it says
I could hardly contain myself to try it. TASTE is good but on the sour side. Now, I only did 1 scoop to 4 oz of water. It was drink-able without hesitation. I am one that is horrible with drinking stuff cuz of the taste. It is not a sipping drink you really want to shoot it. I used a straw and with every suck it got more sour it seemed like but nothing horrid. I love the taste of E&E and am so happy I got it on HD now. I was a little nervous doing HD when I did not know if I would like it at all.
Its kicked in about 5-7mins after drinking it. I felt tingly on the inside and
E&E was AMAZING with my workout! I was working hard and it gave me the energy and endurance to not stop. I went 100% of the dvd's doing everything right and I finished 100% with no breaks. I actually did MORE. I did more of the advanced options.
I so LOVE the E&E I would definitely recommend it. I just wish I could take it everyday. I felt so empowered. And now that my workout is done, I want to do more....

Rated 5 out of 5 by Noodlzz Plyo what?
I work out in the mornings and was having an issue with enough energy while working out. I took E&E this morning about 35 minutes before Plyometrics. I was able to jump higher and push myself harder than I have before. My only complaint was the taste. I use a Magic Bullet for all my shakes and mixing needs and it seemed to foam up pretty badly after a few seconds of mixing. However, that is my only "complaint" because other than that, it works as advertised.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jesse Makes me look forward to my next workout!
This product amazed me! At first I was skeptical but for the price you cannot go wrong. Once I took it i immediately feel it, I waited 10 minutes before I began my Kenpo X workout. Never have I felt a sense of focus and this isn't my first PWO supplement. It felt like I had tunnel vision and I brought it! I didn't feel no jitter and the taste is really good! Just like drinking a lemonade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by krown89 It Just Works!
I was taking Jack3d prior to this and Jack3 really worked but it gave me jitters and kind of didn't feel good afterwards. E&E however was totally different. I didn't feel jitters and I felt focused! (Something the other PWO didn't do). I've only had to take one scoop so far and it just works. For the amount of servings the price is very reasonable and is actually cheap. Taste is also very good :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Richard Product worked great!
Just tried the product and it worked! Took it 10 minutes before my 5 mile run. Gave me more energy than before! Ended up running faster than my buddies. LOL. Taste is fine. One of the better preworkout drinks I've tried. I mixed with 4 oz of cold water. Looking forward to using Energy and Endurance in my next workouts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by InsaneRob42 What it did to my Insanity Workout
Energy and Endurance Pre-workout Formula REVIEW: I seriously just had the best workout of my life! Be prepared to read an essay. I want to give a good review for this product so you know what your getting. Keep in mind I am 308 pounds and Insanity® is the hardest workout i've ever done. So far I have lost 30 pounds on Insanity and I have yet to make it through an entire workout without stopping. This is the closest I have ever come to completing one. The previous day I did Pure Cardio, and did a hardcore arm and ab workout at the gym too. I was super sore and tired. I started off today like every other day. I woke up, ate my 2/3 cup of oatmeal, 2/3 cup of yogurt and berries, and 1 scoop of Pure Protein whey protein in water. I usually wait 2 hours before i workout because oatmeal is complex for your body to breakdown unlike other foods. So 20 minutes before my workout I took 2 scoops of Energy and Endurance Pre-workout Formula then did my workout. I did the Plyometrics Cardio Circuit, the longest workout in month one of insanity (42 minutes). The first thing I noticed that the formula did for me was focus! I was so focused on the workout and blocked everything out. In the warm up which is 10:30 minutes, I usually make it through the 1st set of the warm up then in sets 2 and 3 I only can do 25 second of the exercise then take a 5 second break in between. After taking this, I almost made it through the entire warm up except two small maybe 3 second breaks. Keep in mind i'm 308 pounds, I'm no Shaun T, so this workout alone is super hard for me. In the stretching portion which is 6:50 minutes I usually have to take a few small breaks because of the burn but this time I made it through the entire stretching portion of the video. Now into the actual Circuit training. I only can about 20 seconds of each exercise and take 10 seconds in between each exercise for a break. This time the first set I made it all the way through except for two 2 second breaks. And the other two sets a few 3 second breaks at most. I was so excited because this stuff actually works! After the first circuit I was like WOW this stuff gave me so much energy, I was sweating so much! I thought well its probably going to wear off in the 2nd circuit training. Naturally it did a little bit but whoever is expecting anything to give you energy all day, keep wishing. I only had to take some 5 second breaks but thats the best I have ever done in Insanity. The last 6 minutes of the workout I made it through and I literally was just dripping with sweat like i have never been before. I am also soaked after Insanity but it was pouring off of me. I was so surprised I had that much endurance!
For overall effectiveness of this product I give it 5 stars!
For overall price, because it only 25 days worth I give it 4 stars!
For taste, its pretty good for a pre-workout formula I give it 4 stars! But for all those people who want it to taste like gatorade COME ON, get real, it taste pretty good for what kind of a boost it gives you, it could taste horrible for all I care as long as it does what it did for me everytime I could care less.
For overall quality I give it 5 stars!
For overall satisfaction I give it a solid 4.5 stars!
I am very impressed by BeachBody's supplement and their workout program. I looked at all the ingredient, none of it is bad for you. No creatine which I don't like in any supplement. I will be buying this product again in the near future. Sorry for the essay but I wanted to give this product a good thorough review. Any other questions just ask me, I'll try to be as helpful as possible!
