Mixes with water well. I workout early in the morning and AM NOT A MORNING PERSON. Within 20 minutes I am focused and have the energy I need. There are no crazy gitters or racing heart. Love this product.

Blueberry lemonade tastes awesome! It mixes well with water unlike others pre-workouts I’ve used. I usually take this at 5 pm before my workout and I have no issues with sleeping. Good job ON!

I decided to try this just for a different pre-workout. Taste is better than other products I have tried. This seems to stay with you through the workout a little better than other products.

After bouncing around from pre workout to pre workout trying to find something that I found both effective and tastes good I finally found both in ON Gold Standard Pre workout. I would recommend giving it the 30 minute window to kick in but when it does I usually can hit all my heavy lifts effectively right away and still have energy left over to do some higher rep lifts. Hands down the Blueberry Lemonade is the best tasting pre workout that I've every had. It's tart, sweet, tasty and hits the spot when ice cold right before a hard workout! Highly recommended!

I have been using this for a few weeks and I notice modest improvements during my workouts and distance runs. I've taken some other pre's that give me too much energy it's uncomfortable (as a bipolar person it can be challenging to find the right balance). I find this one gives me the right amount of focus and endurance, as well as a more stable energy for when I want to push myself. I tend to use ON supplements because they seem to incorporate vitamins and other things that help your body in other ways too. I realize many people want a huge pre-workout boost - this is not the rocket fuel one, so if that's what you're looking for I would not recommend this. However if you're like me and you want something more middle of the road for overall wellness - this one is a great one to try out.

Mixability is good, and flavor is pretty sour. Really gets you going, but gives you itches and a massive crash afterwards. For the price, i would not buy it again.

One of the best preworkouts I've had. Perfect energy boost and decent pump. Would highly recommend to anyone, doesn't give you that zoning out or skin crawling feeling. The creatine in it is definitely a plus, especially for the price.

First pre I ever tried and I got some boost from it, but looking at other products on the market, this is a disappointment from ON who usually put out great products. Flavour and creatine amount are quite good though (but then again you can add creatine yourself). I won't name drop other products, but I've definitely had better. Gave it to a friend to try. To be fair, it's a good first pre-workout to test. Pineapple flavour is tasty and the caffein and stimulants aren't high at all
