“It’s Go Time!”—the rallying cry of hardcore teams and individuals in any sport, all over the world. You could say it’s perfect for training, too. What we mean is that Perfect Sports has nailed the pre-workout supplement genre by introducing Go Time, a pre-workout catalyst that boasts a precision-engineered formulation that maximizes both energy and performance. Go Time contains 1.6 grams of beta-alanine, 1.5 grams of citrulline, 1.25 grams of betaine anhydrous, and a gram each of tyrosine and taurine. What they’ve done is essentially combined all the scientifically backed, researched based ingredients and dosages, and packaged them perfectly.
If you’re wondering where the stimulants are, have no fear! You get a hefty dose of B vitamins (specifically B6 and B12), and also 300 milligrams (combined) of caffeine, olive leaf extract, rose root extract, and synephrine. As an added bonus, as much as the folks at Perfect Sports care about what you want in your supplements, they also care about what you don’t want. That is to say, they’ve chosen not to put artificial colours in Go Time; they’ve instead substituted natural beet juice concentrate. This is a choice we can definitely get behind.
As we said before, Go Time isn’t just a pre-workout—it’s a “pre workout catalyst,” according to the bottle. A catalyst is a substance that increases the rate of a chemical reaction. So a pre-workout catalyst would be a supplement whose ingredients were formulated and adjusted in a specific way as to increase the rate in which everything happens. That means getting faster pumps, more focus, increased energy, and more explosive power. Essentially it means everything you want and expect out of your pre-workout, and faster (Note: For an even better pump/experience, try stacking Go Time with Onset, Perfect’s Neuro Pump pre-workout pills—it’s insanity!). Honestly, I loved this pre. From how quick and easy it was to mix in a water bottle (I forgot my shaker at home), to how smooth and amazing the taste was that I had to be careful not to chug it like a BCAA supplement, to how it carried me through a full 75-minute workout without a crash. It was perfect from start to finish.
Go Time comes in Cotton Candy, Peach Mango, and Mixed Berry flavours and is incredibly effective at giving you that pre-workout energy and pump you crave, but without so much caffeine that you’re shaking in your Nikes throughout the workout. The bottle comes in a 160-gram size, and contains either 20 or 40 servings (depending on whether you use a full 8-gram serving or a half/4-gram scoop each time). You can mix one scoop in 4 to 5 ounces of water and drink it 15 to 30 minutes before you hit the gym. Then get ready to destroy your workout!
