Wednesday is Wednesday FriendsDay! Bring a friend to any class time to try CrossFit for the first time!

This is another reminder to always pay attention to exactly what you are putting into your body. We want you reading food labels so you know how many calories you are eating and how much of each macronutrient you’re eating. It’s always important to understand what you’re taking in, but sometimes the industry lets us down.

This is the problem with supplements. Supplements are currently unregulated, and that means they can basically do whatever they want and the Food and Drug Administration can’t do much about it. And sometimes that means they’ll lie to us about what ingredients are in their products.

This is one HUGE reason to rely on real food for your calories and nutrition. Supplements have their place, but they should not be the base of your nutrition.

As you can see in the post below, US Anti-Doping has identified three supplement companies that have been indicted for using unlisted illegal substances in their supplements. The lack of regulation allows these products to be on the market, then we’re stuck backtracking to make these companies responsible.

If you are competing in any sport, some of these supplements would make you test positive for banned substances.

Always know what you are putting in your body and always be careful with supplements. If you are not familiar with the company or the product, do you research before you dive in!
