We’re back from our Whole9 Nutrition Workshop at CrossFit Stamford this past Saturday, and we are ridiculously excited about how ridiculously excited THEY are about the Whole30 program! We had about 25 people at the workshop, and spent almost four hours presenting our material and answering participants’ individual questions. In response, they group has committed to the full “Whole30” program, and even created a nutrition blog to post questions, comments, share good information and offer support.
CF Stamford owners Kristie Bickler and Andy Parker are leading by example, jumping right into the program with their members (and providing all the resources, encouragement and tough love necessary to ensure their clients’ success). In our view, this is the way to do it! Promoting positive change should start at the top, and we think Stamford has amazing potential to (as Robb says) “look, feel and perform” better as a gym with with Kristie and Andy leading the charge.
While not every workshop will run four hours (we schedule them for three, and limit each session to 25 participants), we do make the effort to spend as much time as possible answering everyone’s individual questions as pertaining to THEIR unique goals and nutritional requirements. We aim to bridge the gap between all the reading, researching and planning you do on your own… and what your dinner plate looks like on a typical Wednesday night. In the business world, even a good strategy can fail without proper execution. And when it comes to health, fitness and nutrition, even if you’re well-read, educated, and intentioned… that information is useless unless you know what to do with it.
That’s NOT to say we’re offering a “Paleo 101” – there’s plenty of that information out there. However, just because you’ve heard a thousand times that “grains aren’t Paleo” doesn’t mean you understand the mechanism by which they affect everything from body composition to health conditions to your training goals. We want you to know how your diet can promote better recovery and performance – or contribute to keeping you All Banged Up. We’ll explain how the foods you eat can affect everything from sleep quality to fat loss, even if you don’t notice their immediate impact. And we’ll help you figure out how to keep your nutritional plan solid under any circumstance – not just the perfect laboratory setting of your own kitchen. So do all your reading, researching and planning up front – then come see us. We’ll drop some knowledge, answer your questions and send you home with a specific, simple, sustainable game plan to help you look, feel and perform your personal best. Not a bad way to spend a Saturday morning, huh?
Check the sidebar for upcoming workshop locations. We’ve received lots of email requests, so we thought we’d mention that these workshops are not just limited to current CrossFit clients! If you live in a workshop area and are interested in fitness, nutrition and CrossFit, you are welcome to register. Email us or our CrossFit gym hosts for more information.
Stay tuned for more information on upcoming workshops, a delicious and easy Whole30 recipe creation (spawned from our post-travel laziness + desire for a really hearty home-cooked meal) and a Gym Jones-inspired workout guaranteed to kick your butt from here to 400. (But only if you’re really good at counting.)
