Week 2 Lifestyle Challenge: Drink up!

It is finally here! We are so excited to see all of our athletes in action at Friday Night Lights. Last week we challenged all of you to get at least 7 hours of sleep for at least 5 nights. I hope that you are all feeling refreshed!

This week we want you to drink....water. We challenge you all to drink one gallon of water each day (Saturday-Friday). We suggest that you purchase a gallon jug, decorate it, maybe add some glitter, stickers, perhaps show your team spirit and go at it with some colorful sharpies.

Don't let your bedazzled jug distract you! Make sure to drink the water in it. Take it with you everywhere, like you would a new puppy. Going to the bar? "Haaaaave you met my best friend, Jug O'Water?"

Be sure to post your gallon on social media so we can see who has the best jugs.

Good luck tonight to everyone participating. Please remember that Friday afternoon classes are cancelled through the open. The magic starts tonight at 5:15 pm. Let's get these athletes fired up!! Bring your family. Bring your friends. Bring a chair, a cooler (stocked with your favorite snacks and beverages), and your 'A Game' ovations and let's do this CFG, best tailgate party ever, style!

How will you decorate your jug?

Why we like SFH

If you step into the pro-shop at CrossFit Gainesville you may notice a pretty extensive selection of products from a brand called SFH. Really, the why is easy. We like SFH because it's clean and they can prove it! 

  • Certified GMO-free ingredients

    • "GMO means genetically modified organism. Genes from bacteria, viruses, insects and animals are inserted into the organism's DNA in order to make a heartier plant or animal (drought resistant, pest resistant, decreased maturation time, increased yields). In theory by increasing crop yield, more food could be harvested per acre and the cost of food could be controlled which would feed the world's population. The downside of this process is the introduction into the food chain of new and novel proteins. These new proteins may be allergenic (allergies have been on the rise since the introduction of GMO products) and induce general inflammatory responses." SFH GMO Statement
  • GMP Certified by NSF Health Sciences, a division of NSF International

    • Good manufacturing practices (GMPs) are guidelines that provide a system of processes, procedures and documentation to assure a product has the identity, strength, composition, quality and purity that appear on its label. Choosing a product certified by NSF lets you know the company complies with strict standards and procedures imposed by NSF. From extensive product testing and material analyses to unannounced plant inspections, every aspect of a product's development is thoroughly evaluated before it can earn our certification. Most importantly, NSF certification is not a one-time event, but involves regular on-site inspections of manufacturing facilities and regular re-testing of products to ensure that they continue to meet the same high standards required to maintain certification over time. What is NSF Certification
  • 5 Star Rating by IFOS (International Fish Oil Standards)

    • IFOS is the only program that tests fish oil products to ensure that they contain the amount of active ingredient(s) stated on the label. Environmental contaminants are harmful chemicals that enter the eco­system as a result of industrial activity. These compounds bioaccumulate in the fatty tissues of fish, meaning that oil derived from these tissues may contain excess concentrations of contaminants. Contaminants commonly detected in fish oil samples include heavy met­als (e.g., mercury, lead, arsenic, cadmium) PCBs, dioxins, furans and di­oxin-like PCBs. Clinical research suggests that contaminants from edible marine sources can have negative health effects, many of which outweigh the beneficial health effects of omega-3 intake. New in 2015, IFOS testing now includes radiation. IFOS facts about fish oil
