For those who plan to hit the gym more this year, start here. From collagen powders to Collagen Water™, we've got the goods you need to fuel your routine. Of course, knowing which products to start with can be tough, so below, we're rounding up the ones to take into account. Scroll on for recommendations to take before/after your next sweat session.

5 Collagen Products for the Workout Fan

1. Collagen Peptides

Our Original Collagen Peptides is a favorite due to its odorless and flavorless formula, making it a perfect for your post-workout smoothie. With your scoop, enjoy 20g of collagen per serving, plus the additions of skin-loving hyaluronic acid and vitamin C. Now how about that for a feel-good way to tackle your resolutions?

2. Collagen Water™

It's a no-brainer that staying hydrated while you exercise is essential. So next time you pack your gym bag, get more out of each sip by reaching for a Collagen Water™. With 6 yummy flavors to choose from, all containing 10g of collagen and 3g of sugar or less per serving, you'll refresh your routine in the best way possible.

3. Vital Performance PreWAVE™

Give your body a little TLC before hitting the gym with this pre-workout packed with functional ingredients. On the list includes collagen peptides, muscle-supporting branched-chain amino acids and output-enhancing nitrates. Additionally, caffeine from coffee fruit extract helps give you extra energy to push through those final minutes and repetitions. 

4. Vital Performance RecoveryWAVE™

Trainer Mike Michalski swears by this product to recover after a strenuous session: "It gives me everything I’m looking for: 20g of collagen, BCAAs, essential amino acids and electrolytes," he says. So, if you're all in on these same items, try fitting it in with your regimen.

5. Vital Performance SLEEP™

After a long day of lifting weights, this is the ultimate way to wind down. It contains 400 milligrams of GABA, 230mg of magnesium glycinate and 200 milligrams of L-theanine to aid in your sleep. Plus, additions like 5-HTP, L-tryptophan and B vitamins keep you ready to tackle your next-day fitness. It's a win–win!
