Free Class Saturday at 11AM – no experience needed, come see what CrossFit is all about!
An update on ordered items: T-shirts will be in by next Wednesday, I’m hopeful to be able to pull the pre-orders out and have them ready to pick up Thursday along with non-pre-ordered shirts available for purchase Thursday. We’re expecting a shipment of Jump Ropes to come today and be on sale at the gym tomorrow. T-shirts are $25, Jump Ropes are $15.
Progenex – typically I have not endorsed a specific series or products nor sold them at the gym – I tend to think that the gym is a place to focus on training and coaching alone. However, I absolutely agree that elements extending beyond your WOD effect your performance and so the time has come to talk a little about supplements.
I’ll be writing a complete and detailed “What Dmac uses” supplement guide soon. Till then I’m recommending the Progenex line. I’m actively using their Recovery, Cocoon, and Omega+ products. I’ve used the Recovery post-workout shake for several months across multiple periods and the Omega+ since my surgery. Flat out I believe the Omega+ is the best anti-inflammatory “fish oil” (it’s actually Krill Oil) I’ve ever used – I am holding it responsible in no small part to my speedy and relatively easy recovery.
Here’s the rub: Progenex is expensive. If you’re just getting into CrossFit you should be using a post-workout protein shake but you probably don’t need the highest-end shake that CrossFit Games athletes use. To help with the cost I’ve established a discount code with them. You get 10% off if you use “MTMCF” which will at least cover the shipping cost. If there is enough interest I’ll put together a bulk order so we can save even more.
