3/31/15 - Welcome: Power Supply Meals

As many of you experienced in this last Whole Life Challenge, nutrition is everything. Ninety percent of the the things people come to the gym to get either happen or don’t happen based on what their eating. Furthermore, we know that eating for performance is stereotypically challenging. Food is often hard to find, takes planning, and can be expensive.

We’re excited to announce a new partnership with Power Supply Meals to fill the void. If our athletes eat quality food, our job is 200% more easy and more students are attaining more of their goals.

Here’s how ordering works:

Portion Sizes – Choose between Boost or Standard. Most are happy with Standard, but the calorie-concious go with Boost.
Lunches, Dinners or Both – We focus lunches a little more on easy eating during the day and dinners tend a bit more sit-down oriented. But you can choose from either lunches or dinner if you opt to customize your order with our Mod Your Menu tool.
3 or 5 Days a Week – 3 day plans get one delivery on Mondays. 5 day plans get two deliveries: three meals on Mondays and the remaining two on Thursdays.
Order Deadline – Each Thursday at midnight in order to receive meals delivered to DEUCE Gym the following week.
Customizing the Menu – We’re big on simplicity and new things each week, but modifications are cool too. So no worries if you want to load up on a favorite or sidestep something you don’t eat. Here’s more on menu customization, or what we like to call modding your menu!

ORDER HERE!

If you sign up for a recurring plan (set-and-forget, lower cost), there’s no commitment – you can cancel at any time. And if you want to pause for a short period (e.g. vacation or work travel) you can handle that right in your account online. We’re shooting for all of our deliveries to be made before 7 a.m. on Mondays and Thursdays. If that changes as we adjust our delivery routes we’ll keep you in the loop on new times.

Bon appétit!

"We're you here earlier? said the Chik-fil-A clerk. The truth was that I, in fact, was there earlier today. I didn't think it was really her business to bring it up, but there I was being called out for stopping in to the local fast food chain for the second time that day. You see, it was Spring Training 2009 and our comple ...

Let me be the first to tell you. We've been mislabeled. DEUCE is a strength and conditioning gym. It's a CrossFit gym. It's a weightlifters gym, a strongman gym, and a gym for powerlifters. Yet, even though these are the activities that you may do when you get here, it's not why you're coming here. You can do that stuff alm ...

We got the memo. Set goals, right? Even more advanced approaches have encouraged us to set "big hairy audacious goals" (SEE: Built to Last) and to set small actionable goals to focus on (SEE: Make Sh*t Happen). These things are all great, but the one thing I see folks most often miss when trying to accomplish great things i ...

After this weekend's strongman event, I wanted to do two things. Firstly, I wanted to thank you all for coming down and supporting me. The overwhelming amount of DEUCE people in the crowd surprised me and the event coordinators. Believe me. Second, I wanted to tell you all that I'm back.The last 6-8 months have been the mo ...

This isn't a coach's sob story. It's a real question. When it comes to expertise, how much are we entitled to? I find that, especially in emotionally charged sectors like nutrition and fitness, when people decide it's their time to make a move for their own good, it's big. They want everything, right here, right now.I heard ...

It took me nearly four minutes of vigorous scrolling into the depths of Carl Paoli's Instagram page to find it. As it turns out, it was posted 96 weeks ago to be exact, but I'll never forget when I first saw the simple photo illustration that read, "How strong do runners have to be?" The photo below struck me like lightenin ...

I mean, are you running any specials on yourself right now? Look, basically, I'm asking you if you're willing to just undervalue yourself for a second... just a little bit. I get that you're worth, let's say, "X" but what if we worked something out? Maybe let's do your value minus 20% or so?OK, I'm kidding. It almost sounds ...

We've talked about dangling a strategic carrot to motivate your training before. As we all know by now, context is everything and sometimes you just need a clear answer for those days when you ask yourself, "Why am I doing this?" In that way, I've heard some incredible goals being floated around the gym. What better time t ...
