Premium Coconut Water

I’ve been representing ZICO on and off the beach volleyball court for three years. Their premium coconut water flavors are as delicious as they are essential to keeping me hydrated. A bottle of ZICO contains 5 crucial electrolytes: sodium, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus and potassium. It has roughly the same amount of potassium I’d get from eating a banana. So, whether I’m sweating in the 100-degree heat of Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro or lifting weights in the climate controlled environment of USA Volleyball’s Torrance, California facility, I always keep a bottle or two in my bag to keep me firing on all cylinders.

ZICO also mixes well in a smoothie.  My favorite recipe is 1/2 a cucumber, 1 pear, the juice from 1 lime, some frozen pineapple, some frozen kale, 1 scoop of protein powder, a couple mint leaves and 1/2 a bottle of ZICO natural.

ZICO is fond of saying “Crack Life Open,” which to me means pushing myself beyond what I think is possible and stepping out of my comfort zone. When I push myself, I grow and learn that I’m capable of more than I originally thought. So that advertising slogan fits me well. ZICO has new Chilled Juice Blends in the refrigerated aisle of your grocery store, so keep a lookout for those!


Lauren is not only an amazing athlete, she is a sponsor’s dream. She’s smart, talented, driven, well-spoken, respected, approachable and hard-working with an extremely positive attitude. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with Lauren over the past 3 years.
