Here is a great recovery shake to jump start the rest of your day after your morning workout. It has espresso for the jolt you may need early in the morning, potassium, omega 3s, protein for recovery and some delicious dark Chocolate for antioxidants.
What you need:
1 and 1/2 cup ice
2 shots espresso
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 tsp flax seed oil
3/4 cup Chocolate milk can use dairy, soy or almond
1 tsp Hershey's special dark baking Chocolate powder
Make espresso and allow to cool (If you don't have an espresso machine, don't worry. Just use 2 oz of really strong coffee or use you Keurig on the smallest setting).
This fits in a magic blender perfectly so just assemble all ingredients listed above and mix!
Now sip, gulp, and enjoy!

Don't forget that every January in addition to your monthly membership fee there is the $25 Annual Processing Fee (per member)- this occurs regardless of a membership freeze, if you are a Family Add-on to a primary membership, and even if it is your final month of billing. Your Initial Processing Fee (when you joined) pays for getting you set up in the computer system, paperwork, membership card, and commission for the staff. Your Annual Processing Fee occurs every January and a small portion goes towards paying the fees associated with the monthly automatic debit (but does not to cover it by a long shot) and the majority goes towards club upgrades. We are proud that we have been able to continue to upgrade the gym while keeping your monthly rates the same and not engage in yearly rate increases. Since last year we have invested in:
