Since Robb Wolf kind of threw our name out there last week as someone he’s referring nutritional counseling clients to… that made our lives crazy six ways to Sunday. I mean, we’d talked about this, and I knew it was coming, but I was still unprepared for the volume of email traffic this announcement would bring. But I’m getting ahead of myself… here’s a little bit about what’s going on with our nutritional consulting business.
We’d been talking with Robb about his nutritional counseling practices and the work we’d been doing in that area. So when Dallas and I went to California last month, we spent a lot of time talking to Robb and Nicki about their business, and the direction we’d like to go with our nutritional consulting practice. And during these conversations, Robb mentioned he’d be publicly recommending Melissa as one of his “approved” nutritional counselors. From there, everything just sort of clicked into place, and our business design began to take shape. Dallas and I decided to focus our private business around nutritional counseling. What we’re doing is a lot more than just talking blocks and carbs… you can read our Manifesto on the home page. We plan to provide on a bigger level a service that the CrossFit community needs (clearly, based on the volume of emails I’ve been getting) – help finding the right balance of diet, training, active recovery, sleep, stress management and a whole host of other factors that all add up to optimal health and fitness.
I am confident that we can carve this niche out for ourselves. There is room for us here. There’s a NEED for us here. We won’t run you through a team “Fight Gone Bad”, but we’ll help you nail down your nutrition and recovery so you stomp that workout heavier and harder than you’ve ever thought possible. We won’t hold a kipping clinic, but we’ll give you some ways to reduce inflammation and get those overworked shoulders to open better. We won’t customize your Starting Strength program, but we’ll share with you why we don’t love the concept of a gallon of milk a day.
