Hey, Jake and Josh here, the founders of Too FIt. When we created Too Fit, our goal was to build a brand that is human, transparent, trustworthy, and creates products that are head and shoulders above the rest. That’s exactly what we’ve done in creating the Too Fit Post
From “no way this can ever be produced” to occupying your gym bag. As the story goes...
Before we were supplement creators, we were supplement consumers (and we still are), sadly enough, it seemed that every single recovery product we turned to seemed to have the same issues:
- Products containing cheap/inferior forms of each ingredient.
- Underdosed ingredients - Sadly, most products that do happen to contain quality ingredients are almost always well below the studies and efficacious dosage
- Products loaded with artificial sweeteners, flavors, and colors
- Proteins sourced from cows treated with potentially dangerous hormones and fed a grain diet. We only source 100% organic grass-fed and finished protein from small California dairy farms
- Proteins that have lost their natural components due to being over-processed and denatured from excessive heat exposure
- Recovery products high in sugar or processed carbohydrates. These can be very damaging to your gut and cause blood sugar swings
- Devious supplement companies who find the loopholes in label regulations to fool you and hide what's really in their products (i.e “Proprietary Blends”)
- “Natural” products that contained better ingredients but mostly just jumped on the natural bandwagon. Most were and still are inferior in terms of ingredients, absorption, and overall quality.
- They taste terrible
So, instead of settling… we created our own.
A true, premium recovery formula combining the best sources for post-workout carbohydrates, proteins, micronutrients, and antioxidants that solves ALL of the previously mentioned problems, and then some.
Was it expensive? Absolutely. Does it cut into our profit margins? Of course. But the truth is that we're much more concerned about delivering only the highest-quality product to you as a consumer than we are about profiting from "cheap" production methods that don't serve you and your best interest.
If we wouldn’t put it in our body we wouldn’t expect you to either. As avid athletes and adventurers, we're our own best customers, so you better believe we're only creating products that we're extremely excited about using ourselves on a daily basis.
You won't find any artificial colors, flavors, and most importantly artificial sweeteners in our Post… ever. Instead, our Post is sweetened naturally with monk fruit and stevia leaf extract and a naturally sweet form of fiber from organic agave inulin. It's unlikely you'll find that anywhere else in the sports nutrition market, but to be honest, we're just getting started.
The protein in Post is sourced from 100% pasture-raised, grass-fed and finished cows from small family owned California dairy farms that are fed a USDA Organic diet of yes, crazy enough….GRASS! These cows are not treated with the genetically engineered growth hormones rBGH, and rBST. We don't know about you, but it's certainly our goal to avoid putting unnatural hormones into our bodies whenever possible.
The protein in Post is created through an industry leading technique of cold-processed microfiltration and small batch drying to preserve bioavailability and ensure the most nutrient dense protein remains.
And then there's the label issue. There are many ways that supplement companies try to fool consumers through the use of tricky, and quite frankly unethical, labeling practices, including outright lying on the label about the ingredients and the amounts of each ingredient in their products, but here's one that relates specifically to recovery products and the quality, or lack thereof of:
In fact, these are quotes from just a handful of long-standing manufacturers we had discussions with while working to create the finished product:
Are you sure you want to use this form of carbohydrate? I can sub it out for something 25% of the cost of the one you want and know one will know the difference.
We have a few customers use some of these rare ingredients you want, but never come close to these dosages. We typically just sprinkle them in so they can take advantage of the marketing claims
Why don’t you use the same exotic ingredients but make a performance blend and bulk it with the cheapest ingredient of the group? You get the benefits to marketing the ingredients without the cost
Those are just a handful of responses we received when sitting down with various supplement manufacturers. Fortunately, we found a company in our own backyard who happened to believe in what we were doing and has the same standards we do. So, despite the cost, we went forward with our mission and formula and accomplished bringing you the best product you can put in your body to achieve optimal recovery.
At Too Fit we’ve got your back. What you see is exactly what you get...honesty, transparency, quality, and trust.
Oh, and we almost forgot taste! We knew that all our hard work in creating such a premium product wouldn't mean anything without impeccable taste. It was a labor of love to nail down the taste of the Too Fit Post while adhering to our very strict ingredient specifications…and after 3 months, we finalized what we consider to be the best tasting post-workout product on the market, and once you try it, we think you'll agree. :-) Fueling your naturally awesome lifestyle never tasted this good.
As you can clearly see, we didn't cut any corners when it came to developing what we consider to be the best post-workout product available anywhere, and that's what you can grow to expect from Too Fit with each and every product.
Too Fit Post

Why Too Fit Post?
Our 100% organic, grass-fed and finished whey from pasture raised cows in Northern California is a complete, bio-available protein that is easy to digest, fast absorbing, and helps you build and maintain muscle.
- Growth Hormone, rGBH, and rBST Free
- Cold-processed and microfiltered to preserve bioavailability
- Easy to digest and fast absorbing
All carbs are not created equal. Carb10 is a healthy, low-glycemic carbohydrate that replenishes glycogen (fuel source stored in muscle that gets depleted after training), without causing bloating and discomfort or a spike in insulin.
- Prebiotic, non-allergenic, Non-GMO, and gluten-free
- 82% lower insulin response and 27% lower blood sugar response than maltodextrin
- No bloating or digestive discomfort commonly associated with carb formulas
The Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT’s) help increase amino acid uptake by acting as amino acid carriers, helping assimilate proteins inside the muscle. These immediately metabolized MCT’s also increase resting energy expenditure and trigger the mobilization of stored body fat, enhancing thermogenesis (fat burning).
- Non-GMO coconuts
- Enhances fat burning
- Increases amino acid uptake
- Aids in maintaining muscle mass and preventing muscle breakdown
Curcumin is one of the most potent natural antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds in the world. The form of curcumin in Post, CurcuminPro™, offers the highest level of natural curcumin benefits per dose than any other curcumin ingredient on the market today.
- Boosts antioxidant protection against free radicals (inflammation)
- Provides immune system support
- Improves joint function
We only do natural. We only do awesome.
What’s not in the Post is just as important as what’s in it. It’s our mission to always craft the cleanest supplements.
You'll NEVER see these in Too Fit products
- No Sugar
- No Fillers
- No Artificial Sweeteners
- No Preservatives
- No Magnesium Stearate
- No Acesulfame-K
- No Artificial Colors
- No Artificial Flavors
- No Banned Substances
You will only progress as much as you are able to recover. Having the right nutrients are an essential part of this process. The amino acids delivered from Organic Whey, Pasture Raised Collagen, and BCAA’s help repair muscle tissue, while the carbohydrates from Carb10 replenish depleted glycogen stores. The combination of Creatine MagnaPower and Carnosyn beta-alanine help you reload ATP and improve strength and endurance.
Repair + Rebuild
Kiss DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) goodbye! The potent combination of Curcumin and Tart Cherry Extract, which are rich in antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, can help reduce muscle damage and pain following exercise, and improve joint health and mobility.
Muscle Soreness + Joint Health
As someone who really looks for effective, clean products in an industry flooded with bad ingredients, I feel fortunate to have found Too Fit! I love the quality and the work they put into making a truly great product.
