Promixx 2.0 Vortex Mixer Review

First off, thank Brett from Promixx for sending out my PROMiXX 2.0 – Gold Limited Edition for review!

If you are wondering what the difference is between Version 1.0 and the Version 2.0 Version 2.0 of the Promixx Vortex Mixer that I am testing, version 2.0 has a rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery system with a high torque 16,000 rpm motor while Version 1.0 uses 2AA batteries and has a 9,000 rpm motor.

Here are some of the main features of the Promixx 2.0 Vortex Mixer.

The Promixx 2.0 has a specially designed X-Shape blade which creates a perfect vortex to effectively blend whey proteins and nutritional supplements with liquids, whilst preserving the delicate protein structures.

The Promixx 2.0 Nutripod is designed to click-lock into the lid of the PROMiXX Vortex Mixer to seamlessly store extra or different supplement on the go while staying completely dry and leak proof.

The Promixx is also great for everyday uses like scrambled eggs, pancake mixes, baby formulas, gravies, soups, cocktails, instant coffee or hot chocolate, lemonade and ice tea. And the list goes on...

Specifications:

  • High torque 16,000 rpm motor.
  • Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery (Uses proprietary USB cable)
  • 100% BPA & DEHP-Free
  • Twist Lock, Flip-Cap Lid, Leak-proof guaranteed.
  • Detachable  Motor base for improved portability & easy cleaning.
  • 600ml Bottle, ergonomic design for active users.

My thoughts on my Promixx 2.0 Vortex Mixer:

First off the quality is really good, it's super easy and quick to attach lids, motors and install the Nutripod if you need it for any extra dry mixes.

I found the Promixx 2.0 Vortex Mixer Mixes proteins and powders very well, and as advertised you will not get those nasty little bits of left over powders and as an added bonus nothing sticking to the sides of the container making it easier to clean.

Getting to the easy to clean part, cleaning is fast and simple! Remove the motor so it does not get wet, then give your Promixx 2.0 Vortex Mixer a quick rinse, add some hot water and a little soap, put the motor back on and let the high torque 1600 rpm motor do the heavy cleaning for you, pop the motor off and rise once again. It will actually take you longer to read how to clean your Promixx 2.0 Vortex Mixer than actually do it in person :)

I found the battery to be pretty decent in terms of how often I need to recharge my Promixx 2.0 Vortex Mixer, I can use mine close to a week before I need to charge it again and I generally make at least 1-2 shakes per day.

One concern I had was that it may be a bit gimmick or gadgety and once the novelty wore off I may not use my Promixx much. That is true with a lot of items we buy in life but the Promixx is not cheap compared to other more simple shaker bottles on the market so you will want to make sure you get good value for your money and usage is important when it comes to your return on investment! Well I am happy to report back I am religiously using my Promixx 2.0 Vortex Mixer, more so at home since I tend to get a little rough with my mixers in the gym and all I really take with me to the gym are usually some BCAA and Creatine drinks which generally mix up really well in most shaker bottles. That said the Promixx 2.0 Vortex Mixer is a solid unit and designed to take with you just about anywhere.

I was also surprised at how quiet the motor is especially with the lid on so you can use eat early in the morning or late at night and not disturb anyone like you would with a regular blender.

One areas that I think needs a revisit on the Promixx 2.0 Vortex Mixer is the rubber plug for the charging cable as it's a bit hard to remove and my anchor for it disconnected completely the first time I used it. I also found I would press the rubber charging port since it is similar in size and looks to the power button. Not a big deal I just have to make sure I keep the plug in a safe place while I charge my Promixx 2.0 Vortex Mixer so as not to lose it.

Another consideration you need to be aware of is that you can not put anything solid or hard in the Promixx system, so no frozen fruits or ice unless you want to add them in after you have mixed it up your beverage.

That's about it, if you want the ultimate in a high quality self powered mixer for your blended health and everyday beverages than I highly recommend the Promixx 2.0 Vortex Mixer!

Get Fit Over 40 April 2016 Update Video - Contests - Promixx 2.0 - Apple Watch - iHealth

It's been while since I made an Update Video so I have a few things to share with everyone...

First off I have officially started my cutting for my upcoming Men's Physique Fitness contest in early July. I will be competing in both the Masters and the Open categories of the BC Championships - Vancouver PRO AM and Expo, if all goes well I may even be able to compete in the Nationals a month later :)

I am basically three months out and feeling like I am in a good position, my weight is good, not too much fat on me and I feel I have a good amount of muscle but will be adding more while I cut. I plan to only lose around a half pound or so per week of fat and then see how things are going.

My next few items in this update are product review related. The first review you will see later on this week is for the Promixx 2.0 Vortex Mixer and since I will be covering it in a few days I will not get iinto it too much right now. I do talk a bit about it in this video but again a lot more coming later this week! (Promixx.ca) (Promixx.com)

When the Apple Watch first came out I was super interested but then found out the price and that it was perhaps not the best Fitness watch for me. After all working out with a $600 watch on your wrist is not for the faint of heart. Recently the price has come down a bit on the Apple Watch and I managed to get a pretty good deal on a brand new Black Sport 42mm Apple Watch so I took the plunge. I know it should do everything I am looking for in terms of a Smart Watch but I am also hoping that it will prove to be a decent fitness watch especially when paired with a Heart Rate Strap and introducing a few third party Apps. Once I have had some time with my new Apple Watch I will be sure to give you my feedback on it even if it is not a full on review.

Lastly I needed to get a new WiFi Smart Scale since my Fitbit Aria decided to act up on me, it is actually my second Fitbit Aria WiFi scale as my first one was also defective. Anyway, I purchased an iHealth Vista WiFi Scale that like my Fitbit Aria not only gives me my weight but also my body fat percentage. I even picked up an iHealth Blood Pressure Monitor that pairs with my iPhone over Bluetooth and send that data over to the iHealth cloud based service where all my iHealth data will be. iHealth is also MyFitnessPal friendly which is awesome and will update my weight to all my other linked fitness Apps.

That's it for this Update Video, stay posted for some upcoming reviews on some of these new items I will be using to aid me in my Health and Fitness.
