When the opportunity to try the Space Shaker was presented to me, I was unsure, was it something unnecessarily futuristic? No. When I read the product description and saw that it was a protein shaker that would save me space in my gym bag, I was EAGER to get my hands on it! No matter how many gym bags I buy, the bulky protein shakers are always the hardest to find a space for.
The accordian-style design of the Space Shaker is a winner. When I’m packing for the gym, I pour my own protein powder into the accordian-style bottle, put the lid on, squeeze it shut and toss it into my bag! I pop it back open once I’m at the gym, pour as much water into as I like and drink. It’s really the simplest concept that solves a really annoying problem in my fitness life.
The Space Shaker comes with a scoop of its own protein. Mine was Vanilla; I’ve never met a vanilla flavored protein powder that I liked. This was no different, once combined it tasted like chalk water. Since protein choices are so specific from person to person, I would’ve left the powder out.
A vehement, YES! Protein bottles being big, round and bulky have always been a necessary evil in my gym bag. I wish I could get the Space Shaker in more colors to go with my other gym accoutrements and that it didn’t come with the powder but barring that, it’s a pleasant product that many of my teammates have already inquired about. Buy it, you don’t know you need it until you have it!
