We don’t really push supplements at this gym, because we believe eating real food (paleo) is always the answer. If I’m going to push a product on my athletes (especially one that I am making money off of) I want to be damn certain that the product works and is significantly better than any other product out there. The only product I’ve come across that meets that criteria is CrossFit; which is why that’s all I sell at our box*. There are however a couple supplements we will recommend. You have heard us discuss Fish Oil at the gym but we don’t necessarily push a certain brand, the reason is because I can’t prove to you that “brand X” is better than “brand Y”. If someone is selling you a better version I’d ask for proof or studies that their brand is better than the brand at vitamin world or CVS. No brand has a patent on fish oil so it’s about 99% of it is the same stuff. If you’re willing to pay a bigger price for a brand that claims to have better quality/taste/portion that’s fine, as long as your taking your fish oil. However if you’re avoiding grains and eating plenty of grassfed beef and wild caught fish you probably don’t even need to supplement with fish oil(lets be honest your diet probably isnt as good as it could be so be sure you’re popping those fish oil daily). Another topic I’ve heard people ask about is post workout nutrition – once again the best option is to eat real food (paleo of course) but if you’re going to have a protein shake try and get one with little sugar. Other than that I don’t believe there is much difference between brands, just stick to whey protein. If I were you I would take all of the money you spend on supplements and put that money to eating cleaner by eating grass fed meat, organic vegetables, etc.
