Keep being better humans

Coach Joshua Hromis



We've made some small changes to the CrossFit Collingwood schedule. To learn more, check out the studio posters and also jump into your WODIFY to see more.


We are going to hold an awesome event on the last saturday in June. This WOD is apart of our training cycle, not separate, just a normal training day, so there is no extra pressure on the day, as always just do your best. We are hitting up a social gathering after the BBQ, maybe a cheeky beverage and we would love to see you all there. Learn More Here.

Why is Revitalize a solid whey powder?

Revitalize is made from New Zealand Grass-Fed Whey. It is sourced from cows that graze on all-natural, pesticide free farmlands in the beautiful countryside of New Zealand, a country known for upholding the strictest quality controls for their dairy industry. The milk from these hormone-free cows is non-GMO and flash pasteurized to ensure minimal exposure to heat.

When you order Revitalize you can be sure it is rBGH free. Recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone is a genetically engineered copy of a naturally occuring hormone produced by cows. It goes by a few different names including BGH, rBGH, BST and rBST.

Many countries around the world allow for the administration of rBGH. When rBGH gets injected into dairy cows, milk production increases by as much as 10-15%. The result is more milk, but at the cost of being tortuous for the cows not to mention the potential human health risks.

These negative health concerns have lead Australia and New Zealand to ban the use of Bovine Growth Hormones. However, many countries still permit its administration, such as the USA and France.

Why should I be using protein powder?

After exercise your muscles are a sponge; they will absorb the nutrients you provide them with, so it's important after you exercise to provide your body with the necessary protein & nutrients needed for muscle synthesis and greatly improved recovery time. Protein powder is one of the most researched supplements on the market and definitely works. You want to maximise every result you get in your workout and a post training shake is definitely one way to ensure that is happening.
