Sara Hendershot

“I USED TO EAT LARGE CARB-HEAVY BREAKFASTS BEFORE MORNING PRACTICES, AND WOULD CONSISTENT FEEL ‘BONKS’ IF I WASN’T SUCKING DOWN GATORADE AND GU PACKS. NOW I CAN PERFORM FOR AN ENTIRE 2 HOUR+ MORNING WORKOUT WITH ONLY A 3FU3L SHAKE AS MY BREAKFAST, AND I FEEL FAR BETTER THAN I EVER USED TO. THIS STUFF IS THE REAL DEAL, AND I WILL NEVER TRAIN WITHOUT 3FU3L AGAIN.”
