As most of you know by now Crossfit has proven to be a very effective way of improving health and fitness. Greg Glassman the founder of Crossfit has laid out this pyramid (above) as a guide for us to follow on this fitness journey.
Did you notice that the foundation of that pyramid is nutrition? If you do not have a strong base and a good foundation through solid nutrition practices then you cannot expect to keep progressing towards great health and fitness.
Try and imagine this pyramid in a different context. Instead I want you to see the nutrition piece in relation to your life. If you eat out often or just grab what’s convenient then your foundation is small, weak or brittle. You continue to spend time working hard on improving your conditioning, gymnastics or weightlifting yet you have barely scratched the surface of what you could be because of your foundation.
Although you may be lacking in this area I still have good news for you! Recently we have been working hard at revamping our nutrition program. We believe we have found a way to help everyone no matter his or her goals through nutrition coaching!
Energy balance is very important and getting this right can be a bit tricky. To help you understand what your energy balance is and how to build a solid nutritional base I have created a 3 phase system to guide you along the way. Each phase focuses on different aspects of nutritional practices, getting a bit more detailed as you go. The phases are each 6 weeks long and include a custom template, sample day and grocery list. The template displays your custom macros, calorie balance and food options for each macronutrient giving you a foolproof way to get your nutrition right!
This 3 phase virtual nutrition system is easy to follow, gives you options to add instead of eliminate and teaches solid nutrition techniques that are guaranteed to help you build that base!
