Santa, Mrs. Clause and the Elves Costume, Potluck BBQ Party
Halloween isn’t the only holiday tailor-made for dress-up. Hit up a costume store or make a Santa suit, Mrs. Claus or even an elf ensemble. Tonigt Friday December 5th at 8:30pm come to the gym dress in your best version of what Santa, his wife or his elves would look like. To ensure proper participation, we will award the best dressed Kris Kringle, Mrs. Claus or elf costume with a prize.

Also we will be doing a Re-gifting -the act of handing off one of your previously received unwanted gifts to someone else. Come with one of last Christmas’ cast-offs — a leopard-print Snuggie, an automatic-twirling spaghetti fork, or a hot-pink clip-on tie. Make sure your gift is wrapped. We will play a version of “White Elephant,” where people can pick from the pile or steal someone else’s new acquisition. One person’s trash is another’s recycling!

SFH
If you are looking for a post workout formula, try SFH Recovery. We are fully stocked with 3 different flavors. Vanilla Chocolate and the new favorite Peach Mango.
Sometime after a workout, you will feel like you’ve recovered but at the cellular level it could take hours / days to recover fully. This formula is designed to re-energize your cells by increasing your ATP levels (Adenosine Triphospate- the energy powerhouse of the cell).
Within an hour after your workout, mix yourself up a glass of Recovery Formula. Then, either eat a real meal or drink another glass about two hours later. The purpose is to re-energize your tired muscles and help them recover, maintain joint health and flexibility and decrease the negative effects of free radical oxidants. A muscle cell reloaded with ATP will make new muscle quickly.
Recovery is approximately 2/3 whey concentrate derived from a grass fed, free range cows, which are never treated with antibiotics or bovine growth hormones and approximately 1/3 essential amino acids for recovery.
