The gift of changing someones life is the best gift you could give. Someone you care about on the fence about joining? A 3 month unlimited membership at CrossFit Formidable includes Fundamentals and everything they are going to need to get started on their journey.
2. CrossFit Shoes
Nothing says you’re a CrossFitter more than a pair of Reebok Nano’s. These bad boys were designed for handling the unknown and unknowable. Ultimate in protection and lightweight support. Most important is the “CrossFit” stamp on the shoe! Guaranteed to make you stronger, faster, better. http://shopcrossfitreebok.com
3. Knee Sleeves
We squat A LOT! Knee sleeves provide warmth and compression which supports blood flow and reduces swelling. Regular use can prevent injury, relieve pain and increase performance.http://www.roguefitness.com/rehband-7751-knee-support.php
4. Jump Rope
Learning and mastering the double under can be a frustrating task! Having your own jump rope can help you along this emotional journey. No more sorting through the tangled pile of ropes for one that’s just the right length! http://www.roguefitness.com/conditioning/jump-ropes
5. Progenex Protein & Supplements
There are a lot of supplements and protein products on the market but we wouldn’t recommend any that we haven’t used and truly believe in. We have taken Progenex Recovery, More Muscle, Cocoon, Build, and Force and have had awesome results. Progenex stands behind their products with a money back guarantee if you’re not happy. They have a limited edition flavor “peppermint bark” that is to die for! Progenex Bars and single serve packets also make for great stocking stuffers.
Contact your coaches to see pamphlet or try a sample.
Products available at CrossFit Formidable or online at
6. Fish Oil
“It’s as close to a miracle drug as I’ll ever see in my lifetime,” Dr. Sears
Studies have proven that high concentrations of fish oil can be used to dramatically reduce inflammation, resulting in weight loss, improved blood chemistry and better overall health. More clinical research has shown that fatty acids, even when used to supplement a very poor diet, can help lower the risk of heart disease, cancer, MS, bipolar depression, ADHD, chronic pain and Alzheimer’s—all because fish oils reduce inflammation.(Courtesy of CrossFit Journal)

7. Paleo Cookbooks
Avid CrossFit Athletes are always looking for a way to spice up their Paleo lifestyle. A quick search on amazon will provide you with an extensive selection of paleo cookbooks to choose from! Eat meat, vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch, and NO SUGAR. http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_2_5?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=paleo%20cookbook&sprefix=paleo%2Cstripbooks%2C315&rh=i%3Astripbooks%2Ck%3Apaleo%20cookbook
8. CrossFit Gym Apparel
9. Chiropractic Care & Massage
If you’re a CrossFit athlete, then you probably know a thing or two about achieving overall health and wellness. Driven, hardworking and motivated, CrossFitters usually desire optimum health and well-being, placing value in achieving their peak physical performance. This is done through their commitment to regular workouts, proper nutrition and adequate rest. Unfortunately, many of them miss one vital link in this important chain: regular chiropractic care and massage. Contact CFF Athlete and Liscensed Massage Therapist Flo from Z-VA Day Spa or our CFF Chiropractor of choice Dr. Michael Vissers from Vissers Chiropractic to pick up a giftcard.
