Prior to my workout I used a sample packet of FinaFlex N.O. Ignite Pre-Workout packet Tropical Storm flavor. It taste just like fruit punch one of my favorite flavors. Also want to mention I don't normally use a pre-workout supplement. I took it about 20 minutes prior to hitting the gym approx 5:15pm. The product itself tasted pretty good. At first it had a tad powdery taste, I wasn't sure how much water to use so i used 4 oz of water. It finally kicked in about 45 minutes after i took it which was almost half way through my workout. I would have to give this a thumbs up. Just would need to take it about an 45 minute to an hour prior to working out. The product reads take 15-30 minutes prior. Of course every ones tolerance may be different.
