Arbonne Fizzy Sticks

To say the least, I was not overly excited when my wife Sally signed up to be a sales consultant for Arbonne.  I don't want to get into it too much, but to say that we fought about it is the understatement of the year.  But regardless of my thoughts on the matter, Sally signed up, and now it's done.  Finis.  Sayonara.  Game over.

I may not be a fan of Arbonne,
but I can admit that their fizzy
sticks are endurance recovery
Why is this important?  Because while I may hate Arbonne with an abiding passion, I can still admit that their "fizzy stick" drinks are without doubt the very best post-workout recovery drinks known to man.  They make me feel better after every workout absolutely without fail.  I literally chugged the things when I had the flu, and I put at least one down every single time I go for a long run these days.

If you're wondering, fizzy sticks are basically a mildly caffeinated form of Gatorade, save that they have about a thousand times more vitamins than Gatorade, and they get their caffeine from green tea extract.  There's not too much sugar--at only 2 grams, I would actually prefer it if there was more--but there're plenty of electrolytes, and like I said, they always make me feel great, even after a serious effort.

Anyway, I don't want to push these things too hard, but being married to an Arbonne consultant, I feel contractually obligated to tell you how to order these things so that you can try them for yourself.  All you have to do is go to the Arbonne website, search through until you find the fizzy sticks (hint: I gave you the link above; I personally recommend pomegranate), and use my wife's ID number (12766622) to complete the transaction.  It's important to use Sally's ID number, of course, because she gets paid by Arbonne on commission.

So that's it.

Seriously, I don't care if you buy anything else from Arbonne ever again, but if you're doing serious endurance training this season, give the fizzy sticks a try.  You'll be glad you did.


  1. I love these. Just used one post workout. They really help with recovery. I believe it is the green tea extract. Definitely need to put more in my gym bag.

  2. I need some more, too. I think next time I go for a long ride, I'll probably take one of these and one scoop of Gatorade and mix that together with 20oz of water and use that to keep me going.

    The only problem with the fizzy sticks for use DURING exercise is that they only have 2 grams of sugar, which isn't enough for ongoing endurance exercise. On the other hand, one fizzy stick isn't enough to fill a full bike water bottle, which is where I got the idea of mixing this stuff together.
