South Australia is very fortunate to have some fantastic companies providing unrivalled and high-quality fitness products.
Over the past few months, people have been working out at home (and in general) a whole lot, so now might be the perfect time to top up on the protein powder, buy those new leggings, and get ready to sweat it out.
And what better way to do that than by supporting local?
Let’s be real. The supplements market is heavily swayed toward men in the body-building industry. Seeing this gap in the market, friends Ben Germein and Hien Nguyen have created a range of delicious protein products that energise and motivate.
Happy Way products are 100% natural and are bursting at the seams with natural minerals, vitamins, phytonutrients and antioxidants. They are free from any preservatives, artificial sweeteners or flavours. The winner of the 2018 Telstra Business Award, Happy Way now has a worldwide customer base, selling in 64 countries.
Their range of products include: whey and plant-based protein powders, fat burner powders, BCAA powders, superfoods and kids snacks.
