PITTSBURGH – There’s nothing quite like a thirst-quenching glass of iced tea or lemonade to make it through a hot summer day. Originally created with simple ingredients, such as tea leaves and lemons, these two summer beverages needed a sprinkle of sugar and a few ice cubes to become favorites for cooling down on the beach or at a barbeque.
Now, GNC and Bucked Up have combined these classics to bring that same refreshing taste to the gym, while also firing up any fitness session with boosted mental focus, calorie burn, and recovery. Available at GNC retail stores and on GNC.com for a limited time, Bucked Up Iced Tea Lemonade is said to revitalize workouts and joins an existing range of pre-workouts flavors from Bucked Up including Berry, Razzle Dazzle, Strawberry Kiwi, Watermelon, Blue Snow Cone, and more.
“The release of Bucked Up Iced Tea Lemonade is another great milestone in our partnership,” said Kevin Maloberti, VP, Merchandising, GNC. “And the momentum in groundbreaking innovation from Bucked Upthis year has been nothing like we’ve seen before. This exclusive flavor is the perfect antidote to the summer heat and a great complement to the brand’s other leading pre-workouts.”
From dedicated athletes to fitness lovers, Bucked Up’s game-changing formulas stimulate performance and maximize calorie-burning efforts. They support optimized results for a variety of fitness goals, using unique science-based ingredients such as MitoBurn®, Beta-Alanine to encourage muscle endurance through buffering the burn, and AlphaSize® for cognitive health.
