To me Fish oils have become a symbol of one of my central Crossfit struggles. For those who know me, I have a lot of struggles. My struggle with multiple strict muscle ups. My struggle with ring handstands. My struggle with reality.
One of the many conflicts that occupy our time is merchandising: should we try and make money by selling you stuff. Should there be a machine selling sugar water, and spring water… should we take up all those commission offers and sell you protein powder. On the whole, our view is no. Everyone who coaches at Crosfit London has outside duties, and we just dont really have the time to unpack, audit stuff, get change etc etc. ( but hats off to the lovely kate who somehow manages to keep the t-shirt box stocked up).
That said, when we get around to getting some full time staff members, that may change: with a member of staff cluttering up the place , we may well get them to flog you protein powder and inov8’s.
For now, we just dont have the resources to collect orders, collect money allocate etc etc.
For most products who cares? You can get protein powder everywhere ( really), inov8’s are easier bought on line… but we thought we would make a slight exception with omega 3.
The literature on Omega 3 is persuasive, but many types of oils dont have enough EPA DHA content. In the quantities crossfit recommend consumption, the oil needs to be very pure, and not rancid. To this end, we identified Pure Pharma as a very good bulk supplier, but lacked the time and will to arrange a supplement club.
We had also been aware of Minami Nutrition UK who received some good reviews on their products so we have asked them for a discount code that you can use. So if you have a small order, go to
