You thought post-workout showers were already pretty unbeatable. Trust me when I claim that post-exercise lathers with FITKIT muscle recovery shower gels are in a league of their own. Refreshing yet soothing. Really savouring every bubble of glorious muscle cooling relief. That’s right sore-muscled peeps, you just found your new best friend, in FITKIT form.
Writing this review from 2 perspectives: the RUNNER (AKA mine) and the RIDER (AKA bro)…apologies swimmers, not quite a triathlete just yet.
FROM THE RUNNER’S POINT OF VIEW
If you’ve read my review on the blissfully scented ZK’IN ORGANICS products sent by nutrimarket (use my code for a cheeky 20% off) you’ll be aware of my stance regarding scented products. In my eyes, if it smells good, it most likely is good. And this shower gel smells THE BOMB DOT COM. A mere sniff of its deliciously fresh peppermint and eucalyptus aroma is to be lavished in all its glory. Goodbye lingering chlorine stench post-swim, hello minty fresh scent post-scrub.
Three words: clean, stylish, and practical. All anything needs to be. A simple waterproof sachet with an easy-to-open cap and handy peg for attaching onto gym bag straps does the job with elegance. FIT KIT’s three shower gels are packaged distinctively yet in-sync with each other. FIT KIT have ticked all the boxes when it comes to packing in my view; their products are even Instagram feed friendly.
I like the fact that this product soothes and relieves muscles in dire need of some pepperminty TLC, without the need for a long and often tedious soak in the bath tub. For someone who finds bathing a chore, the fact that I can now reap all the muscle recovery benefits of a post-exercise targeted product whilst also lapping up a refreshing cool shower is the ultimate win-win. Who’s ever seen a bath in the gym shower facilities anyway?!
Pleasantly surprised and very impressed by FITKIT’s pepperminty revelation, packaged in a stylish, practical blue pouch. This would’ve been just the thing after my 10k race back in October! Would recommend to anyone feeling a little bit of the dreaded DOMS, or if you simply crave a revitalising boost.
FROM THE RIDER’S POINT OF VIEW
Post-ride summary on the whole shower-gel malarky from cycling-mad brother. Warning: contains ‘STRAVA cyclist’ talk – beware!
Tried post-cycle ride (approx. 30km, route containing some tough STRAVA segments). Cold water plus FITKIT shower gel made refreshing combo on achy legs. Can imagine using after a longer ride – TOUR DE FRANCE stage, perhaps – for extreme jelly leg rehab. Woke up the following morning devoid of my usual post-ride heavy legs. Impressive.
