Onnit Introduces EGN Powerfood

fOnnit Introduces EGN PowerfoodI first wrote about this product back in May of this year. Aubrey Marcus was on Joey Diaz’s podcast talking about Onnit’s upcoming products and he mentioned something about a new product that would rival Green Vibrance. Seven months later, this product has finally come to fruition, and it’s called Onnit EGN Powerfood.

Back then I had no idea what Green Vibrance was, so I did a little research and found out that it’s a powder that you mix in water or juice. It’s a superdrink that provides you with a wide range of vitamins, nutrients, and minerals that a lot of us don’t get through our daily eating habits. Having the ability to drink some Green Vibrance and get everything you need from one glass is appealing. The problem according to Aubrey is that Green Vibrance doesn’t taste good. At all. If you’re like me, drinking something that tastes disgusting doesn’t make me want to drink it, regardless of how good it is for me.

So what Aubrey set out to do was to create something in the same vein as Green Vibrance, but have it taste good. The result is EGN Powerfood, with the EGN standing for Earth Grown Nutrients, a favorite phrase of Mike Dolce. It works in much the same way as Green Vibrance: you scoop some of the powder into a glass of water or juice and chug it back.

So what’s in this EGN Powerfood? Literally too much stuff for me to type out here, but I’ll break it down into categories: there are an assortment of antioxidants, a variety of greens, a rainbow of fruits and vegetables, a blend of ingredients designed for detoxing, and a blend for digestion to cap it off. It’s honestly a little unbelievable when you look at the list of ingredients and think that somehow they condensed all of this stuff into the plastic jar of EGN Superfood, and that somehow you can obtain the benefits of these ingredients by drinking one glass of the stuff per day.

I’m the type of person who doesn’t like eating many vegetables. I’d rather blend and drink them in a smoothie than eat them with my meals, but I try as best as I can. Knowing that you can mix up a drink and obtain the same benefits is definitely appealing. Now some of that stuff I force myself to eat I can take off the menu and substitute it with EGN Powerfood instead.

For those who care about gluten and GMOs and all those other food-related buzzwords, EGN Powerfood is vegan-friendly, non GMO, and it doesn’t contain any dairy, gluten, or soy.

Learn more about EGN Powerfood and its ingredients and benefits on Onnit’s website.

Onnit Cyber Monday Sale: Save Up to 25%, Earn 10% More Off, Free Go Packs

Onnit Cyber Monday Sale: Save Up to 25%, Earn 10% More Off, Free Go PacksLike I mentioned on Black Friday, Onnit is having a huge sale, and it’s actually getting better today for Cyber Monday. You can still save up to 25% on supplements, foods, packages, fitness equipment and gear, but you can also save up to an additional 10% based on how much you spend. If you spend $150 or more, you get an additional 5% off. If you spend $250 or more, you get an additional 10% off on top of the aforementioned discounts. That’s bonkers! Plus every order regardless of its amount will receive a free single go pack, which is essentially a single serving of something like Alpha Brain or Shroom Tech Sport.

This incredible Cyber Monday sale ends tonight, Monday, December 2, 2013 at 11:59 PST. Remember that PST is actually three hours behind EST, so that would really be 2:59AM EST.

This is all I’m going to say on the Onnit Cyber Monday Sale. Below is the breakdown of the savings:

Save Up to 30% (and more!) During Onnit’s 2014 Black Friday Cyber Monday Sale

Save Up to 30% (and more!) During Onnit's 2014 Black Friday Cyber Monday Sale

Update: 12/01/2014

Today is Cyber Monday, which means it’s the last day of Onnit’s big Black Friday/Cyber Monday 2014 sale. Before the sale ends, you’ll want to head over to the Onnit website and check out the TPC: Total Primate Care page. TPC includes all of Onnit’s best supplements divided into day and night packs, available in 15 and 30-day supplies. This stuff is normally out of stock, so the fact that it’s actually available and on sale today makes it a no brainer. Stock up while this stuff is on sale and save a ton of money compared to buying the supplements individually. Remember, you have until 11:59PM EST (8:59PM PST) today, December 1, 2014, to save big money.

Update: 11/28/2014

I’ve noticed a lot of people heading to this page looking for Onnit’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2014 sales. This is an old post from last year, but is still getting hits from Google, so I figured I’d update this post with information for this year.

Unlike previous years where you could save up to 25% off Onnit products, Onnit has launched its biggest sale of the year, and maybe ever. The company has said that this will be the biggest sale of the year, so I wouldn’t expect a bigger sale on Boxing Day or heading into 2015. That being said, if you’ve held back on buying something or are looking to stock up on supplements or foods you use regularly, this is the time to buy.

Here’s how the 2014 Onnit Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale breaks down:

  • Save 25% off all supplements
  • Save 18% off all foods and fitness equipment
  • Save 30% off all gear (clothes, bags, etc.)
  • Save an additional 5% off on all orders over $150
  • Save an additional 10% off on all orders over $250!

As you can see, this adds up to some serious savings.

If you were interested in the Primal Bells, you can get the whole line at a crazy discount and save a boat load of cash. This works for any of the expensive Onnit exercise equipment actually. And, if you stock up on multiple bottles of supplements you can save a lot. If you need a new blender, the Blendtec WildSide–which retails for $500 on the Onnit website–is available for about $336 this weekend. This is MADNESS!

It’s a cliche, I know, but literally the more you buy the more you save in the long run.

So click here to check out the special Black Friday and Cyber Monday page that Onnit has posted for a full breakdown of the sale, which ends at 11:59PM EST on Monday, December 1, 2014. You still have all weekend, but don’t put it off and wait because stuff sells out often. The Zombie Bells are out of stock, the Total Primate Care is out of stock, and who knows what could be next.

Have a great weekend everybody!


In my post earlier today I mentioned how I was going to tone down the Onnit posts on this blog, so I’ll keep this one short and sweet.

Like every other online and brick and mortar store, Onnit is having a sale this Black Friday, and it’s the best one of the year. If there are any supplements supplements, foods, package deals, or fitness gear that you’ve had your eye on, now’s the time to pull the trigger. Some of this stuff can also make a great Christmas gift as well, so there’s that to think about too. At any rate, there are some great deals, so act quickly, because some of this stuff is sure to go out of stock over the weekend.

And for the record, this sale includes everything from Primal Bells and Zombie Bells to Onnit 180 drink mix, Total Primate Care, Hemp Force, T+ testosterone booster, Alpha Brain, Blendtec blenders, and everything else.

Here’s the breakdown of the savings during Onnit’s Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale:

This sale starts on Friday, November 29, 2013 at 12AM EST. So to those of us who don’t go to bed at 9PM, this means Thursday night at midnight everything goes on sale. The sale is on all weekend and concludes on Cyber Monday (Monday, December 2, 2013) at 11:59 PST. Remember that PST is actually three hours behind EST, so that would really be 2:59AM EST. Confused yet? Me too. Not sure why Onnit chose to list these times in two time zones, but there you have it. Visit onnit.com sometime this weekend after midnight tonight (but before midnight on Monday night) and you can save up to 25% off everything.

Onnit Salutes the Military with 12% Discount

Onnit Salutes the Military with 12% DiscountOnnit doesn’t run coupon codes or deals very often, but those of you who serve in the military or live in a military residence have the opportunity to save a bit of money. As a thank you to to everyone in the military for their service, Onnit provides a 12% discount to all orders that ship to APO, FPO, and DPO addresses. Being a Canadian I wasn’t sure exactly what this meant, but essentially it means if you serve in the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Coast Guard, or Air Force and have a military address, you qualify for the 12% discount. That being said, you do have to have your account approved first. I’m not sure what this entails, but I suggest you head over to the Onnit website and start saving some money!

The Ultimate Steel Mace Workout

The Ultimate Steel Mace WorkoutThe problem with owning exercise equipment like a steel mace  or a steel club is that workouts are a little hard to come by. You can’t exactly stream this stuff over Netflix, so you’re left with ordering obscure DVDs over the internet that may or may not be what you’re looking for. Because these DVDs don’t sell high volumes, the cost of them is often higher than you’d pay for something like The Avengers on Blu-Ray. Of course there’s always home-made YouTube clips of guys swinging around steel clubs, but the production leaves a lot to be desired.

What Onnit has done is taken the next logical step in its fitness empire. The company is not only bringing steel maces and steel clubs to the masses, its now also providing the workout routines so you can make the most of this equipment. A smart move, I thought, but what I like even more is the delivery method. Gone are the days of physical media, either in the form of a video tape or disc. No longer will you have to wait days or weeks for your video to arrive in the mail. Onnit is now offering digital downloads, the first of which is The Ultimate Steel Mace Workout.

The advantages to a digital download are plentiful. Pay for it, download it, and begin your workout within a few minutes. No waiting by the mailbox for your video to be delivered. Going on the road? Copy the video file to your laptop, tablet, or even your smart phone to take it on the road with you. Back it up to a USB stick and ensure you never accidentally delete or lose it. The workout can be with you wherever you go–indoors or out–and you won’t have to be tied to your television.

But enough about the format, let’s talk about The Ultimate Steel Mace Workout itself, which is hosted by Mr. Onnit, Aubrey Marcus. Aubrey has designed a workout that’s suitable for any skill level. Obviously, newbies will want to start with the lowest weight possible, and savages can go for the heaviest if they can handle it. Aubrey then puts you through an intense full body workout that pushes your cardio and strength to its limits, and then brings you back down with a yoga cooldown.

The video also features “extras” or bonus features in the form of videos that outline the history of the mace and techniques you’ll use in the video to ensure proper form. Priced at only $5, it’s cheap enough to take a gamble on if you own and use steel clubs. Don’t have steel clubs? Onnit is selling them right now at a 10% discount.

I haven’t yet purchased The Ultimate Steel Mace workout, but I’m definitely intrigued, and with Onnit’s track record, I’m sure it’s a quality product.

A Powerful Joe Rogan T-Shirt!

A Powerful Joe Rogan T-ShirtI realize this isn’t specifically a Joe Rogan T-shirt, as it doesn’t have his face on it and it isn’t a part of his Higher Primate line. But let’s face it: Joe was the one who made the “POWERFUL!” phrase popular, at least to listeners of his The Joe Rogan Experience podcast.

What I like about this powerful shirt is how clean and simple it is. It’s not like the garish Deathsquad T-shirts that Redban sells, and it doesn’t scream that you listen to TJRE podcast. It’s a subtle nod to let those who know know that you have good taste in podcasts and fitness gear and supplements. Yes guys, this is actually an Onnit T-shirt available on the Onnit website, but it’s clearly Rogan-inspired. Grab one if you like Joe, like his podcast, or want to support Onnit and the awesome things Aubrey and the guys over there are doing.

The shirt is heather gray with big black block letters across the front. The left sleeve has a tiny black patch with the double N Onnit logo, and the back has a small Onnit logo just below the neck hole. Clean, subtle, and comfortable. This shirt is a tri-blend crewneck T, made from a 50% polyester, 25% cotton, and 25% rayon blend. It weighs 4.26 oz. if you care about how much your shirts weigh. For detailed measurements, head over to the Onnit website and figure out which size you are. They come in all sizes from small up to XXL for you guys who are extra swole, and they’re less than $20. POWERFUL!

New Onnit Silkscreened Art Prints and Zombie T-Shirts!

Onnit Zombie Bell Kettlebell T-ShirtFirst off, let me start this post by apologizing for the lack of updates recently. As I mentioned earlier, I was on holidays last week so I took the week off. Then, I got busy getting back to work and couldn’t find the motivation to update the blog during my free time. But I’m back into the swing of things now and hope to update Tight Lightning at least three times per week: every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

For today’s blog post, I just want to point out a few new things that Onnit has on its webstore. I’ve been writing about Onnit a lot recently, mainly because the company decided to drop so many new products all at once. This isn’t a bad thing by any means, but I’ve been writing more about products and less about other things like exercise, food, and other healthy tips to help improve your life.

As you guys know, Onnit released its line of Zombie Bell kettlebells just before Halloween. Onnit also released DigesTech, its new digestive aid to help ease discomfort caused by eating and to help your body absorb vitamins and nutrients more efficiently. If that wasn’t enough, the Onnit 180 rejuvenating drink mix (with Alpha Brain!) that’s designed to help the body recover was also released within the past couple of weeks. But the company also dropped a few other new items that won’t help you improve the way your body looks or feels.

The first of these items is a line of Onnit silkscreened prints. I’ve always admired the artwork that Onnit uses on its shirts. It’s stylish, it’s unique, and it’s not plastered with logos and text. As you can see below, each print relates to an Onnit product without being too obvious. I’m seriously considering ordering the shark print to frame for my house, but the owl with its glow in the dark ink is badass too. They’re priced just under $15 each, so they’re a rather inexpensive way to add some unique artwork to your home. Also worth mentioning is that each print is printed on fine recycled Speckletone stock paper, they measure 18”x24”, and they’re shipped rolled up to ensure they arrive in mint condition.

Onnit Silkscreened Art Prints

Speaking of Onnit’s artwork and T-shirts, a brand new Onnit Zombie Bell T-shirt has also been added to the website. Just like the other shirts, the Zombie Bell shirt features the same style of minimal flowing artwork with a splash of color. This one is more like a rainbow really, but it fits with the almost cartoonish style of the artwork. You can check it out at the top of this post, and if you would like to order it, you can find it on Onnit’s website in men’s and women’s sizes.

Onnit 180 Drink Mix Now Available!

Onnit 180 Drink Mix Now Available!I’m on holidays this week so I’ve been away from the computer, but I thought I’d type up this quick blog post to let everyone know that Onnit 180 drink mix powder is now available! I first wrote about this months ago–late spring or early summer, if I remember correctly–so this is a long time coming. I’ve been really excited about this product!

So in a nutshell, Onnit 180 is a rejuvenating drink mix that’s filled with vitamins and nutrients. I first heard Aubrey talk about Onnit 180 on Joey Diaz’s podcast The Church of What’s Happening Now and he said that it is a great product for anyone who suffers from jet lag, or for when you’re hungover. It’s actually like a few Onnit supplements combined: you get the cognitive enhancing and neurotransmitter benefits of Alpha Brain, the adaptogens from Shroom Tech Sport, 5-HTP from New Mood, along with minerals to boost the immune system and some new ingredients as well. Basically Onnit 180 is great for any situation where the body feels stress, like jet lag and hangovers of course, but when you’re feeling down or when you need Alpha Brain’s effects to hit you faster than taking the supplement in capsule form.

Onnit 180 powder drink mix is now available on the Onnit website and it comes in boxes of 10. It’s priced at about $30 for a box of 10, which can seem expensive, but keep in mind this isn’t Kool-Aid. It’s also not medicine, but you should treat it that way: taking it only when you need, not when you’re thirsty. Having a box at the office, at home, and one for the suitcase will ensure that you’re always covered when stress from flying, drinking, or working becomes overwhelming.

Onnit DigesTech Released!

Onnit DigesTech ReleasedIt’s been a busy week for Onnit, with the release of its Zombie Bells kettle bells, new posters, a new shirt, and now its digestion aid. Like they say, when it rains, it pours. I’m excited about the Zombie Bells as much as the next guy, but don’t overlook Onnit’s newest supplement DigesTech.

From its name alone you can likely gather that DigesTech aids in digestion. Fortunately this is not a problem that I have to deal with, but I know that many of you do. That being said, DigesTech isn’t solely for the people who have trouble digesting things like dairy, fats, carbs, protein, and fiber.

Of course, those who do have digestion issues will feel positive effects from taking DigesTech. This product contains professional grade digestion enzymes that are formulated to help break down everything I mentioned above. This can ease discomfort that comes from digesting food, but Onnit’s DigesTech helps you absorb nutrients more efficiently as well.

Onnit DigesTech is crafted using a variety of ingredients designed to break down the five major food categories I mentioned above. These ingredients include protease to digest protein, amylase to digest carbs, lipase to digest fat, along with 14 other digestive aids. This is the time of year when people tend to overeat and eat especially large meals, so DigesTech is the perfect all-natural solution to help you feel a little bit better. You will absorb more nutrients and your body will break down the food faster, leading to a decrease in fatigue and bloating after big holiday meals.

Onnit Zombie Bells Now Available!

Onnit Zombie Bells Now Available!Oh shit! Everyone has been waiting weeks for these, and now the Onnit Zombie Bells are finally available. I say “they” because there is actually more than one Zombie Bell. In fact, there are four Zombie Bells in total, varying in size of course, and they’re all available right now. Halloween has always been my favorite holiday, and now it’s that much cooler.

Let’s get right into it and take a look at each of these Zombie Bells working from smallest to largest, from the right side of the image below over to the left:

Onnit Zombie Bells Kettlebells

Brain Goblin Zombie Bell
This is the smallest of the Zombie Bells, weighing in at a half pood, which is 18 lbs. He has rotting flesh, exposed teeth, and angry lifeless eyes that stare back at you as you swing him around.

Staple Head Zombie Bell
The Staple Head Zombie Bell weighs a full pood or 36 lbs. He’s missing his nose and his lips and his scalp has been ripped off revealing his skull underneath, what’s remaining of his flesh is held to his head with staples.

Ghostface Thrilla Zombie Bell
The Ghostface Thrilla Zombie bell weighs 1.5 poods or 54 lbs. This guy has an angry sneer, he’s missing a nose and his lips, and like the others, his flesh is rotting off his face.

The Mega Death Zombie Bell
The most badass of all the Zombie Bells is the two pood 72 lb. Mega Death Zombie Bell. This guy too is a little angry that he’s a member of the living dead. Someone’s gotten to him and managed to clamp his mouth shut. While you won’t have to worry about him biting a chunk out of your body, he’s definitely the most intimidating of the Zombie Bells to workout with.

All four of these Onnit Zombie Bell kettlebells are crafted with chip-resistant iron, so if you want to workout with them, they’ll stand the test of time. If you want to display them as works of art, they’re perfect for that too. They’ll also make incredible weapons should a zombie apocalypse take over the world at any time.

As I said, these Zombie Bells can be displayed as works of art, and that’s not hyperbole. They are beautifully crafted with incredible attention to detail. Each Zombie Bell is made to human skull proportions. They’re balanced perfectly as well, so if you do want to work out with them, you can, and they’re feel just like a traditional kettlebell will. But these are infinitely more badass.

Like the Primal Bells, the Zombie Bells are available for a limited time only. If you want to buy one, don’t wait. If you think you might want the whole collection, scoop them all up. If you choose either of the two biggest Zombie Bells in your order, you’ll also get a pair of Onnit Zombie Bell wrist guards to sweeten the deal.

Happy Halloween!
