New sports nutrition products
Natural testosterone booster stack
While we still carry pro hormones, there are alternatives that natural optimize your body’s testosterone production. Activate Extreme ensures that you are producing as much test as possible, plus reducing estrogen and cortisol as well. In addition, it frees up your test by binding with the limiting SHBG hormone, amplifying the results. We recommend stacking the Activate with ZMA and GABA to further enhance the effects.
New pre-workout formula: Hemo-Rage by Nutrex
Pre-workout formulas are a very common staple in most individuals supplement stack. They all do similar things (boost energy, increase blood flow, improve mental focus/intensity). One of the things however, is that each individual reacts different based on their own make-up. While some products work great for certain people, others it has low effect. One that our beta-testers had good success with is Hemo-Rage by Nutrex. It is intense and if you are looking for an edge on your performance and boost in your growth, this might be one to try next time.
New post-workout shake: Aftershock Recovery & Repair
What you ingest after workouts is the most important meal of the day (yes, breakfast is second). Getting the proper nutrients kick-starts the recovery from your training. Aftershock has everything you could want post-workout in one convenient serving. This includes lactose-free protein, quality carbohydrates, BCAAs and glutamine, creatine, anti-oxidants and even glucosamine for the joints. This is what we call a “lean mass stimulator” meaning that it won’t cause bodyfat gain, but just help repair the muscle, perfect for those who want to build muscle but keep bodyfat low. Try a sample of the delicious Pina Colada flavor at Monday madness!
Training tip: Attack the weak point
No matter what you train for (general fitness, sports, etc) when you are performing certain exercises, you might notice that you are better at some than others. Everyone has weak points that limit their performance (the weakest link in a chain breaks first). To get the most from your workouts, you should first recognize the weakness, then put an emphasis on bringing it up. This could be many things (weak lower back, inflexibility, tendonitis, imbalance, etc). Once you discover what is holding you back, prioritize your training to bring the limitation up and blow through your sticking points. Contact one of our certified trainers if you want to have us help you discover these and design a program to accelerate your progress.
Nutrition tip: Take it slow
While overnight results shouldn’t be expected, most individuals still are looking for results to happen quicker than they should. Depending on your bodyweight and current bodyfat percentage, this equals a 1/2 to 1 pound loss per week for women and a 1 to 2 pound loss for men. By taking it slow, it ensures that your metabolism stays high and you don’t lose excess muscle tissue. It is also more healthy and reinforces long term results verses a quick “biggest loser” drop. When we work with our nutrition clients, this is one thing we monitor closely to optimize results. For more information or a customized meal plan/coaching, contact Ryan, a certified sports nutrition specialist to set up an appointment.
Supplement tip: What you use during your workout is critical
A recent study from the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition cited how significant subjects were positively affected when they took in the proper nutrients during training. While most understand the importance of a good post workout shake, often at best, they just drink water during their workouts. By sipping on the correct mix during workouts, recovery and performance can be accelerated, resulting in better progress.
Here is a formula for during your workout:
Branch Chain Amino Acids: By sipping on free-form aminos, you are starting tissue repair immediately. Your body can also use these as a direct source of energy if needed as well. We recommend Xtend.
Carbs: We’re not talking a lot here, but 20 grams or so will be sufficient to keep glycogen levels up and fuel the fire. We carry dextrose for this and 2 Tbsp is all you need.
L-Arginine: This amino acid increases blood flow to the muscles, which deliver more nutrients and oxygen during the workouts. This helps with performance and recovery.
Beta-Alanine: BA delays fatigue by reducing lactic acid buildup. If the “burn” is causing you to quit, this will reduce this limiting factor.
Recipe: Convenient Post workout shake
Nothing fancy here, just the key ingredients to recover best from your workouts
Ingredients: 1-2 scoops Karbolyn, 1-2 scoops whey protein, 1 scoop Xtend, Creatine, beta alanine.
Mix all of these ingredients dry into a zip-lock baggie and put in a small tupperware container. After your training and you are done sipping your intra-training drink (see above) take the zip-lock baggie and empty the contents into your shaker right there at the gym. Add water first, then mix it up. This allows you to easily get those nutrients into you asap and start the recovery process immediately.

This is an incredible way to get a quick, non-invasive, therapeutic massage. What looks like a tanning bed is actually a chamber that has 40 high-pressure jets that go from your feet to your neck pulsating heated water. You don’t get wet though and are fully dressed. There is a sheath between you and the water, so you just lay there, relax and enjoy! A great pick-me-up over lunch, after workouts, or as a maintenance in between intense deep tissue work. Only $1.00 per minute it is a great way to treat yourself (or someone you know). Swing in and try it out!
