I received a free sample of ENERGYbits last month and then completely forgot about them!! Then yesterday I remembered them and decided it was time to try them out for myself, as I had heard so many good things about them.
I took 30 of them about 15 mins prior to my workout, yes 30 sounds a lot and it is, but they say you can adjust how many you take at a time, but they do recommend at least 30. You can chew or swallow them, I chose to swallow them around 5 a time, as they are pretty small. They are made of 100% algae so imagine they wouldn't taste that great if you did chew them!
My planned workout was 8 miles on my exercise bike followed by some weights, normally I stop a few times whilst doing 8 miles, but not this time, I actually completed the 8 miles quicker than normal, and ha plenty of energy left to do my weights without taking a rest in between. I was worried they might make me super thirsty or have an aftertaste, but there was none of that. Also there was no noticeable crash after taking them, I completed my workout and went on to enjoy the rest of my day. I have some more left over and plan to take them again before I take part in my Dirty Girl mud run in as few weeks. I'm definitely going to need some more energy that day!!

Based on my one use I would certainly recommend the ENERGYbits for taking prior to a workout, as they seemed to make a difference for me :)
