Lessons Learned from Athletes & Yogis

Posted by Nick Anderson on

We caught up with a few of the yoga studios and gyms who distribute Take 5 to learn why their members purchase our relaxation drink. Turns out that fitness and relaxation go together like peanut butter and jelly. Here's the scoop.


Yoga, in general, is rooted in relaxation and balance. Mindful breathing, long exhales, physical exertion. For many yogis, it's part of a daily or weekly routine to unwind and reduce stress. BUT, the benefits of yoga may not last 24/7, once you pile on the pressures of work, kids, and relationships. Take 5 has become a secret weapon for those moments when life happens outside of the yoga studio. The simple little 2oz bottle is easy to throw into a purse or backpack. Sometimes it's just nice to know you've got a safety net in case the shit hits the fan. 


Gym owners had similar feedback, although they often see their members drinking Take 5 immediately after a workout. Aerobic exercise and weightlifting are a great way to blow off steam and stress, but pumping iron gets the heart beating faster and the blood flowing faster. Gyms blast intense music to energize their members. I mean, Celine Dion has a beautiful voice, but nobody wants to listen to her while running 5 miles, or hitting the squat rack. So after an intense workout, it's nice to come back down to earth. Grabbing a bottle of Take 5 on the way out the door has become a simple way to level out the energy and restore a sense of calm and balance.
