As a society, spend so much time trying to get in shape and also spend billions on the latest and greatest when it comes to supplements to enhance fitness regimens. Yet most of these supplements are off-the-shelf solutions that do not take into account an individual’s physiology. Gainful, a personalized sports drink and nutrition company, provides tailored supplements, making pro-level sports nutrition accessible.
