In case you missed our post on WODies from last month, CrossFit Hollywood has a new monthly promotion: the Product of the Month. This is a new program we’re implementing as a way to educate our members about the stuff we carry in our Pro-Shop and give you a chance to try it out. We only sell products we truly believe in, so we wanted an opportunity to tell you what it is that we carry and why we carry it. Each month, we’ll feature a different product available for sale and then offer it at 10% off for the entire month.
So, our second Product of the Month is…Xendurance Xecute!
If you’ve looked behind the front desk recently, you might have noticed that we carry two types of protein: SFH Recovery and Xendurance Xecute. This month, we’ll highlight the Exendurance version.
Protein powder can be an extremely convenient way to get protein in after a workout, which is super important for recovery and building muscle. Finding a good protein powder, however, can be a huge challenge since many proteins on the market are highly processed and basically crap. We have tried a lot of products and done a lot of research to make sure that we carry only the best proteins we can find. Xendurance is a great product that is much cleaner than many other options. It has a high quality formula and is officially ANDY APPROVED.
What makes Xecute different is that is contains 4 types of protein:
- Whey Protein Hydrolysate is broken down using enzymes to allow for better absorption of the amino acids. This is super grade, so it is top tier.
- Whey Protein Isolate is a concentration of protein. No such thing as 100%, but 90-95% is common for a super grade.
- Misceller Casein is the only protein proven to be an anti-catabolic. This means it prevents muscle breakdown during intense exercise. This protein can elevate amino acids in the bloodstream for up to 7 hours, allowing the body to repair itself for extended periods of time.
- Calcium Caseinate is a slow digesting protein from skim milk. Usually 90-95% protein, it acts a lot like Casein, slow digestive, and is common to take before bed.
Xecute also contains all needed BCAAs, Electrolytes, B3, B6, B12, D3, 1.5g Lactate (energy), and is sweetened with organic cane sugar, stevia, and raw cocoa.

A representative from Xendurance will be at CFHW some point this month (stay tuned for the date!) to sample the protein and talk about it in much more detail. And don’t forget – it is 10% off NOW through the end of October at our Pro-Shop behind the desk!
