Zim Fit recently exploded onto the supplement scene in late 2023 with their fully loaded GET PMPD product. To kick off 2024, Zim Fit just launched the newest addition to their product lineup, GET FKD Pre-workout. Featuring clinically dosed ingredients aimed at promoting blood flow, endurance, energy, and focus in the gym, GET FKD is certainly a product to keep your eye on.

Let's dive head first into the beauty behind GET FKD's formula, shall we?

Zim Fit GET FKD Supplement Facts

*Disclaimer: This article is based off 21.8g serving size (1 scoop)

L-Citrulline 6000mg

GET FKD’s pump complex features 6,000mg of L-citrulline. L-citrulline is one of the most popular pre-workout ingredients on the planet, and for good reason. It is an amino acid that indirectly converts to nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is essentially the holy grail of ingredients when it comes to enhancing blood flow, and it acts by expanding blood vessels through a process called vasodilation. This mechanism allows more blood to be delivered to your muscles, while at the same time, it also removes waste products on its way out. Since blood is the carrier of oxygen and nutrients to muscle tissue, increases in blood flow is especially beneficial for exercise performance.

Beta-Alanine 4000mg

Beta-Alanine is an amino acid responsible for the synthesis of carnosyn, which is responsible for acid-base regulation within muscle cells. As you exercise, lactic acid begins to build up. This buildup in lactic acid can induce fatigue and ultimately hinder performance. By binding to hydrogen ions and preventing drop in pH levels, Carnosyn helps to buffer changes in pH. Through this mechanism, beta-alanine has been shown to 1) prolong time to exhaustion and 2) increase performance in the gym. It is important to note that beta-alanine is responsible for an effect known as paresthesia: the tingling sensation most gym goers have come to know all too well. This sensation is entirely harmless!

Betaine Anhydrous 2500mg

Betaine anhydrous, also known as trimethylglycine, is another naturally occurring amino acid present in several plant species. It plays a significant role in exercise performance by acting as an osmolyte; a compound that controls intracellular fluid balance and hydration. As you may know, hydration is essential when it comes to endurance training. Evidence suggests that betaine poses benefits in endurance during both resistance and high-volume training due to its hyperhydration effects.

L-Tyrosine 1500mg

Tyrosine is a non-essential amino acid and precursor to the neurotransmitters dopamine and noradrenaline. Tyrosine is one of the most popular nootropic compounds in the supplement industry and often finds itself in pre-workout formulas for good reason. It’s primarily used to enhance both focus and cognition during bouts of acute stress, such as exercising. Tyrosine is known to provide a sense of euphoria that gym rats seemingly can never get enough of.  The 1,500mg dose included in GET FKD is clinical and more than enough to achieve it’s desired nootropic effects.

L-Taurine 1500mg

This amino acid is highly prevalent in electrically active tissue and poses a wide range of benefits; it is considered an osmoregulator and controls fluid volume within cells. Taurine also regulates calcium homeostasis. Calcium is an electrolyte that plays a critical role in muscular contractions. Taurine also displays benefits in overall cardiovascular health by promoting vasodilation via reducing production of angiotensin II. By prioritizing the use of fat for fuel, taurine has been shown to enhance endurance training, which is why Zim Fit has chosen to include this diverse ingredient within their GET FKD formula.

L-Theanine 350mg

Theanine is a naturally occurring amino acid which has been shown to reduce stress and anxiety. When paired with caffeine, theanine may improve aspects of cognitive function while also reducing the unpleasant side effects associated with caffeine consumption. Additional nootropic benefits include improvements in executive function, memory, and attention.

Caffeine Anhydrous 300mg

We’re well aware that caffeine is almost everyone’s favorite energy-providing, focus enhancing ingredient! This central nervous stimulant is well known throughout the industry; it is the purest caffeine source on the planet and poses a plethora of health benefits:

  • enhances energy
  • increases focus
  • promotes thermogenesis

The benefits of caffeine are backed my many, many studies and it is potentially the most consumed ingredient in the world. There indeed are several forms of caffeine available on the market, but caffeine anhydrous is far and away the most popular.

Alpha-GPC 50% 300mg

Alpha-GPC is a precursor to one of the most important neurotransmitters in the body, acetylcholine. Acetylcholine plays a role in memory, cognition, and skeletal muscle contractions. When compared to other acetylcholine precursors such as choline bitartrate, CitiCholine, and DMAE; it has been shown to be more effective crossing the blood brain barrier. For that reason, is typically considered more desirable and has landed itself a spot in GET FKD’s starting lineup. The research behind Alpha-GPC is well documented, as supplementation has also been shown to significantly increase 1) vertical jump power and 2) peak bench press force during performance training. 

Di-Caffeine Malate 50mg

You didn’t actually think we were done talking about caffeine, did you? Di-caffeine malate is the second caffeine source present in GET FKD; it is shown to provide longer lasting energy and is 75% caffeine by mass. At 50mg, this provides another 37.5 caffeine and brings the grand total caffeine intake to 337.5mg. Di-caffeine malate is primarily utilized to provide longer lasting energy and to help offset that ever-so-dreaded crash most caffeine users experience post-workout. It dose pose similar benefits to caffeine anhydrous by boosting energy, thermogenesis, and focus and pairs very well with caffeine anhydrous to provide clean hitting energy.

AstraGin 50mg

NuLiv Science’s patented, plant based compound, AstraGin, is found within GET FKD and dosed at a clinical 50mg AstraGin provides “full gut support” through several mechanisms:

  1. enhanced nutrient absorption
  2. microbiota viability
  3. immune cell viability
  4. promoting healthy intestinal wall environment

AstraGin has a simple, but unique mechanism of action. It works by increasing the number of transporter proteins present within the gut. These transporter proteins are responsible for carrying nutrients to the wall of the intestine, which makes them available to be absorbed by the body. In vitro and in vivo studies show that AstraGin promotes the absorption of many amino acids, primarily arginine. AstraGin has evidence to support claims suggesting improved absorption of histidine, lysine, glucose, folate, creatine, agmatine, beta-alanine, choline, citrulline, BCAAs, and carnitine. AstraGin poses many, many benefits and makes a great addition to almost any formula, which is why Zim Fit opted to utilize its powerful absorption properties in GET FKD.

Huperzine A 1% 30mg

To round out the formula, GET FKD features a clinical dose of Huperzine A 1% dosed at 30mg. Huperzine A is a compound known as an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor; it prevents an enzyme from breaking down the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Because of this mechanism, Huperzine pairs very well with acetylcholine precursors like Alpha GPC, which is found within this formula. As acetylcholine plays a major role in the nervous system by enhancing focus, cognition, and skeletal muscle contraction, increases in acetylcholine pose especially beneficial for performance training.


GET FKD is currently available on Zim Fit's website for $56.95 for 30 servings. It is currently available in two flavors:

  1. Cherry Taffy
  2. Blackberry Lime

Final Takeaway

It's nice to see a higher stimulant pre-workout formula that checks off all the boxes you seek in a well-rounded formula. At the same time, it isn't over the top in stimulants. You've probably heard the phrase "there's beauty in simplicity" or "more isn't always better", and I think those pertains to GET FKD especially well. It certainly is high powered, but keep things this energy complex especially clean. There's a lot to like about this formula, and I would highly recommend for those looking for something with a bit more energy without sacrificing other ingredients classifications. Great stuff from Zim Fit!
