This protein is our favorite because it uses the highest quality whey from grassfed cows and tastes fantastic. If you’re training hard or need emergency protein, we can’t recommend SFH more highly – especially FUEL, the newest formula that’s made with coconut for extra deliciousness. […]

Do I Need New Shoes?

I get lots of questions about shoes. Should I run barefoot? Should I get minimalist shoes? Do I need CrossFit shoes? The answer? It depends. There’s always the point of view that you really don’t need any gear to go out and work hard. And there’s something to be said for that. However, your feet […]
