And now for another part of the large equation of health and fitness: nutrition. Everyone loves throwing weights around and one-upping their counterparts in one of the various character/team-building WODs, but what about the fuel required to do so? Crossfit demands proper and efficient movement at high intensity and sometimes high volume and though sound programming will yield progress in these domains, it is largely nutrition that allows for the consistency of such progress.

So what and how should you eat? The state of the fitness industry has left clients misinformed. Getting to talk to many of the members at CSV I realize the spread of knowledge regarding food in conjunction with performance and/or aesthetics. My recommendation is to self-educate and let go of rigid notions. Don’t leave your health in the hands of magazines and television shows.  Take the time to regularly learn something new about nutrition and expand your knowledge base.

Below are some articles to get you started!

For many of us, it is MUCH NEEDED!  If inclined, come in today and fortify your strengths and work on what needs extra attention or just mobilize and stretch.  If you missed a day this week or last week, we recommend making up one of the fun WODs to compare and contrast results.
