Post-Workout of the Year | Main | Breakout Product of the Year

If you think the fit life is nothing but shakes, dropsets, and HIIT, you're only getting half the story. It's about recovery, too! That's when the magic happens, and "sore as hell" turns into "I could walk through walls."



Here are health and wellness products that you let us know you trust most in 2018. Spoiler alert: The winner is the same one many of you have been trusting since the Reagan administration.

Winner: Animal Pak

Animal pak

The original "bodybuilder's multivitamin" is still the top choice for competitors, serious athletes, and anyone who is chasing superhuman performance in the gym or on the stage. In a business where products vanish seemingly overnight, Animal Pak's longevity—since 1983, people—speaks to its effectiveness. Today, you can get it in scoop form, not just packs, but the label is as solid as ever. If you're depleting yourself in the weight room, this is mandatory.
