Supplements give a challenger that added edge and accelerate results - Jim

Taking Supplements will help you get the results you want, faster. There is no doubt in mind, I’ve experienced it first hand and I’ve seen clients in our studios use supplements to perform better. Will supplements fix a bad nutrition program, no! Will supplements help you strategically, absolutely.
When we first opened in 2016 we sent our members to local retailers like GNC, Amazon, and even Costco. Frankly, in our early years we unknowingly misguided our members, putting all of the emphasis on Kickboxing 3 or more times a week and eating clean. We have learned so much since 2016, in this section of the website we are going to share with you what we know, based on the past 3 years of working with experts and watching our client’s success and failures. The first thing you should know is Supplements are NOT all created equal. The dirty little secret is, what’s on the label is not always in the tablets. Consistency within a product line is a challenge.
We spent almost all of 2019 talking with supplement companies and other top gym owners in the country before I selected Prestige Labs as our partner and signed the Distributor agreement on Sept 5, 2019. A couple of main reasons Prestige was selected.
- Quality and Quality Assurance. Prestige Labs developed for Olympians by a genius bodybuilder coach and chemist, Dr. Trevor Kashey, PhD. Here are a couple more facts about Dr. Kashey:
- Got PhD in Biochemistry at age 20 (the youngest in U.S. history)
- Got a Bachelors degree in Chemistry at age 17
- Finished High School at age 15
- Took SATs when he was 11
- World record breaker in Strongman
- Olympic advisor for nutrition and supplementation for a host of countries
- Advises a number of Olympians and professional clients
- Personally tested over 3,000 ingredients to formulate the best possible line of supplements
- Prestige Labs supplements are created and packaged in a GMP-certified facility. They test every batch for purity at both the bulk and mixing stages to ensure they create the highest-quality supplements possible formulated using only the freshest, superior ingredients.
- There is the logic behind the blends. When you visit their website (MyBestHour.com/Prestige) and look at their products, you can watch videos of Dr. Kashey speaking about each of the products and the thought process behind the blends. A true chemist in action.
We want our clients to be successful in our studios, so we pass on about 40% off the list price if you were to buy these products direct from Prestige. All of us have been burned by taking supplements that don’t work, all they do is create very expensive urine. Prestige Labs is pharmaceutical grade, what you see on the label is what you get in the tablets. We believe if we help our clients have a successful outcome, their friends, family, and coworkers will notice and sooner, than later, those friends become our clients and we grow. So we don’t mind passing on our discount, because they work. The staff uses them and we pay the same price as you. 🙂
Here is what Jim would tell you about these products.
Before we tell you about our favorite products, allow us to share a few “hacks” we have learned using these products over the past two years.
#1 These ingredients are amazing, so if you experience any side effects (upset stomach, itching, etc…) basically anything you don’t like, back off the recommended dosage. That is why you can go all the down to one tablet, instead of two or three.
#2 The Pre:Step 1 Pre Workout is best taken about 20 minutes before class. However, if you DON’T feel like taking class, drink it 45 to 60 minutes before class and you will get in the mood. This is a great hack for getting your mindset “right” before kickboxing. Pre:Step 1 will help you burn more calories in class which means you will lose stubborn body fat faster! Pre:Step comes with an added Caffeine pill for an added kick. Most of us skip the pill by personal choice and find the powder is enough to get us ready for class.
#3 INTRA (Post Workout) is best to take immediately after kickboxing, however, it’s ok to split it across two bottles of water. Hydration with INTRA is the key to battling onset muscle soreness. So take half a dose with one bottle of water and immediately follow it with more water and the second half of the serving.
#4 Sleep Multiplier is NOT a typical sleep aid, like Advil PM. What it does is CALM your muscles down so you can fall asleep faster. It also magnifies the recovery process which means you will wake up less sore. If you are dealing with soreness you must introduce INTRA and Sleep Multiplier into your daily routine. While I’m talking about this, you should take INTRA and Sleep Multiplier every day, even off days, it will supercharge your recovery process. The faster muscle can repair the faster the new muscle will grow. Plus we all have kickboxed sore and we know it sucks and our calorie burn is less, which means we’re not maximizing our time on the mat!
#5 When it comes to Fat Burning the biggest problem most of our clients face is sugar, carb, and alcohol cravings. If we control this, especially if we don’t snack after dinner, our bodies will burn fat for fuel instead of carbs, even when we’re sleeping. If you want to get control over these cravings you must add BURN AM and BURN PM to your every-single-day supplement program. We find BURN AM is best taken when you wake up, before your shower and breakfast, with 12 or 16 oz of water on an empty stomach. BURN PM should be taken toward the end of your dinner meal. It is best taken when you have food in your stomach. Give these products 3-5 days to kick in, when you feel the need to snack, drink a glass of water and wait it out. You will be super happy with the lack of food craving. We also feel this stack works better when you do the AM and PM regiment together, instead of AM or PM. The BURN AM/PM Stack pays for itself because you are not eating or drinking your calories. If you are going out to dinner, take the BURN PM with an Appetizer, we bet you it will help you NOT go crazy on your date night.
#6 Unless you’re logging all of your food in an app (which we encourage you to do), you are probably not consuming enough protein in your diet. Protein is critical for muscle repair. We recommend you add a Protein drink after your workout. Prestige Labs makes a great-tasting Protein powder that mixes well with water and frankly tastes like vanilla ice cream. If you can’t take it after kickboxing, add it to your lunch as a dessert. We do carry the LEAN Protein Drinks and Fit Crunch Protein bars in the studio for this reason. Timing matters.
#7 Women need Testosterone too. In fact, for women, TEST STORM is Prestige’s number one product, because it works and women rave about it. Women will get long and leaner taking TEST STORM. We recommend you start with 1 tablet and gradually work up to 3. It has been known to give clients tingles. Guys, the fact is our Testosterone levels peak when we’re 20, so we need to supplement the loss. This product will help reduce belly fat and give you more hormonal balance. While I’m discussing hormones, we have had great success getting our bodies back to becoming fat-burning machines when we add EFA HORMONE OPTIMIZER with BURN AM/PM. Because it balances Insulin & Blood Sugar Levels the body just starts functioning better and the stubborn fat seems to have no chance. We have recently added the new Bulletproof Greens to our daily program to help with our A1C and experience less bloating and improved metabolism.
#8 If you hate to cook and often reach for junk food, do yourself a big favor and just order ICON Ready Made Meals. You can either live on these meals during the challenge or use them to have meals in your freezer, ready to go in 3-4 minutes. We all know what happens when we don’t meal prep and get home late from work, these ready-made meals will save you for about 1/3 the price of DOOR DASH. Just note the meals do not come seasoned on purpose, so season them to YOUR taste. We like a little salt, pepper, and hot sauce or salsa.
#9 Vitamins. I think most of us agree that we don’t get all of the “right” vitamins every day. The sad truth is, the vitamins we purchase at the grocery store or Costco do not have the quality to really help us a whole lot. Prestige Labs uses the finest ingredients and is pharmaceutical grade. In addition, it is formulated for people who exercise and has specific blends for Men and Women. You will notice a difference in how you feel after taking these for a couple of weeks.
Here are some of our favorite products. Also remember you can build your own bundle (buy 3 get 1 free) on any of the supplements (not Protein) using coupon code: GL4E in your cart.
