PHOENIX, Nov. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Touring the country performing music from her latest album, filming a reality show and actively participating in various charity events doesn't stop Kellie Pickler from staying active and eating healthy. The secret to her fitness success is teaming up with friends, getting outside and including natural protein in her diet. Pickler chooses Rockin' Refuel as her go-to protein drink for its high quality ingredients, and great taste.
To challenge herself to try a new, fun workout, she recently partnered with Rockin' Refuel to compete in the Warrior Dash muddy obstacle race outside of Nashville. Kellie, husband songwriter/producer Kyle Jacobs and nine of their friends formed "Team Kellie" and joined more than 4,000 racers to take on a 5k extreme obstacle course that included crawling through a mud pit, ducking under barbed wire and scaling the 14-foot Warrior Wall. Check out the video to see how much fun she had with her team competing in the race.
"For me, I like to have fun with my exercise but I also need a challenge to keep myself interested," said Pickler. "The Warrior Dash was both for me, but, honestly, I really needed my strength to power through some of those obstacles. Training and drinking Rockin' Refuel Lean Builder helped me prepare and it was a good way to get the protein I needed to ensure I finished."
Her personal favorite Rockin' Refuel variety is Lean Builder Chocolate; with its great taste, 150 calories, and 20 grams of protein it's ideal for people who are looking to build and tone lean muscle. No matter what type of athlete you are, there is a Rockin' Refuel beverage for you. Rockin' Refuel is made with real milk and contains the high quality protein active people of all levels need to achieve their physical goals, whether it's building muscle or recovering after a hard workout. It's a fresh, natural way to build and rebuild muscle.
Rockin' Refuel is excited to have Kellie Pickler on their star-studded team, which also includes pro football player A.J. Green and basketball star Skylar Diggins.
