STRONGER FASTER HEALTHIER

SFH is stocked and ready for purchase in the CrossFit Fargo store. Before you jump to buying products, we want you to know when and why you should be using them. Listed below are four of the SFH products we currently have and a quick description on how we think they will improve you as an athlete and as a human. Check out FUEL, FISH OIL, PURE, and STRONG.

 

Why would I choose SFH over other supplement brands? 

Each SFH product has a short list of common, recognizable ingredients. This tells you it is a pure way to be taking in what you want from a supplement without extras. SFH says, "You can be fit and not healthy. We want you to be both!" With this, SFH desires to be transparent about the science of their products.
