When I starting developing Reforged, there were a few things in mind that I wanted to accomplish.

From these ideas, came a philosophy or ideology we believe in.

A purpose. 

The Transformative Purpose was born.

Our products are forged with a Transformative Purpose. This means that each product is crafted to get you somewhere.

To get you to keep moving forward daily.

We accomplish this by achieving four goals, what we call the QSST:

  1. Quality
  2. Safety
  3. Simplicity
  4. Transparency

You can view a video on our transformative purpose below, or read the article in it's entirety.

Let's discuss the QSST.

The QSST

The QSST allows us to create products that help you achieve your greatest potential. As we create our own fate through transformation, we believe these four goals are absolutely necessary.

I. Quality

Quality is everything. 

The supplement industry typically factors quality on the taste and the intended benefits.

We take it further with our two other factors: experience and efficacious dosages. 

Experience

Our experience goes beyond the effects you feel afterward. The Reforged experience focuses on what our supplements provide overtime.

Efficacious Dosages

An Efficacious dose is defined as the desired amount to achieve the desired improvement. Our products are made with science-based efficacious dosages. These are supplements that I confidently use on a daily basis because they ARE quality.

We don't just promise - we deliver.

Our products were created to journey alongside you. Think of Reforged as your mentor on your journey to greatness.

We want to help you achieve your greatest potential.

II. Safety

As the FDA doesn't regulate each supplement that goes out in the industry, we know that it could be a scary thought.

I've personally taken supplements that eventually became banned.

As such, we use the World Anti-Doping Agency's banned substance list before coming up with our supplements.

This allows us to truly focus on safe products.

III. Simplicity

Reforged values a minimalistic mindset when it comes to crafting our supplements. As such, most of our products have only a few components in their formulations.

This allows us to really focus on prioritizing the components that actually work in our products. No proprietary blends or matrixes.

We give you each component and educate you on each so that you can truly optimize your lifestyle.

Some may think that minimalism is less, but that is incorrect. It allows us to put more into the things that matter most.

Less is sometimes even more.

IV. Transparency

You will see everything that is in our products through our label.

No proprietary blends or matrixes.

Each component of our formula will be visible for everyone to see. We want you to know what you put into your body.

We want you to feel like you're getting good quality and safe products.

We want you to trust us every step of the way.

The Transformative Purpose

By accomplishing these four goals, we achieve the purpose: a pathway towards consistent transformation.

At Reforged, one of our four tenets is Transformation. We seek it in every aspect of our lives, despite the circumstance. No matter what challenges we face, we embrace it.

Improvise. Adapt. Overcome.

Seek transformation with us. Like a phoenix, you rise.

7 Ways To Get Off The Couch & Exercise When You Are Depressed
7 Ways To Get Off The Couch & Exercise When You Are Depressed

by Tony Gjokaj September 17, 2021 5 min read

When you're depressed, even when you're not expending a lot of energy... you don't feel like you have any energy to spare to begin with.

It can be aggravating to hear that you need to work out to boost your endorphins, (or whatever your friends say to you).

In reality, they aren't wrong... but how can you exercise if you can't even get out of bed?

Is there something wrong with us?

Absolutely not. This happens with depression.

The thing with depression is that your whole body may feel like it is against you... and it's very frustrating.

I've been there.

But I was forced to work out once I committed to it because of an accountability partner I had.

In this post, we are going to go over some ways that may help you get off the couch when your mind & body are against you.

Hydration is paramount to your health and wellbeing.

When I worked my previous management job, I ran three rental car branches simultaneously at a time where one of the other managers was gone for over a month.

I would try to get my water in regularly, but the locations were incredibly busy. You would always find me at the front desk with customers swarming in.

This played a large part in my stress and I never knew it did until I found a way to actually get drink more water.

In this short post, we are going to go over why hydration is essential for mental health.

The Inactivity Trap: Where Depression and Physical Inactivity Collide
The Inactivity Trap: Where Depression and Physical Inactivity Collide

by Tony Gjokaj September 08, 2021 3 min read

When I was overweight, I was inactive, depressed, and had insomnia.

I would isolate myself from social interaction, which led me down a dark path where I contemplated suicide.

Eventually, fitness was my salvation, as physical activity led to me sleeping better, eating better, feeling better, and thinking better.

Prior to exercise, I was stuck in what was deemed an Inactivity Trap.

So in this post, we are going to go over an article that was written in 2009 with the same name, called "The Inactivity Trap". This article included studies that supported their claims from a psychological standpoint which intrigued me as well.

So let's dive into what the Inactivity Trap is.
