According to Kundrat, Propel Fitness Water is a good alternative to a regular sports drink for those that are concerned about taking in extra calories during a workout.

Kundrat goes on to explain that her research has shown, consuming calories while exercising can actually lower total calories eaten in a day for the average person.
