If you were to walk into a room full of people and ask what nutrition is you would probably receive a handful of various answers. Some people have a positive response…. but seriously, most people probably draw back and instantly think of terms like “healthy”, “diet”, or “that means that I can’t eat <insert favorite edible vice here>”. Open any dictionary and you’ll find the definition of nutrition as “obtaining the food necessary for growth and health”. Meh. Not very exciting. At all.
That’s where we, at CrossFit Liberate, see an opportunity to maximize your health journey. Yes, we do agree that nutrition is a way to promote growth and health but we also see it as so much more. We like food. A lot. And we like food that makes us feel good, alive, and happier versions of ourselves. We believe in eating good food. We believe in eating food that nourishes us. We believe in focusing on food as a component of fitness.
Now, let’s define what good food is here before you carried away with ideas of queso and cupcakes. Good food is whole food. Food that is as natural as you can find it with minimal processing. Basically, let’s get back to eating the real stuff! Foods that are raised and/or grown such as meats, vegetables, nuts, seeds, fruits, some starches, and as little sugar as possible. These foods are nutrient dense and provide everything we need so why not have as much of it as possible?
Wasn’t what you were wanting to hear? Or maybe it is a now your psyched and want to know more about how to hop on this nutrition train. Good news, for both you peeps. We’ve got some great programs coming your way to help you create and maintain a nutrition plan that works for you. Just like we optimize our workouts to help you find your highest level of fitness, we would love to sit down with you and work together to help you discover what your version of nutrition looks like. We’ve got an excellent team that is here to support you, hold you accountable, and acknowledge your successes. On staff, we have our coach Brynn, who is a Whole30 Certified Coach Candidate as well as an Integrative RN Health Coach Candidate. Set up a one on one coaching session, show up for some of our nutrition workshops and demos, or join one of our gym challenges and navigate your new plan with your fellow CrossFit Liberate athletes.
We can’t wait to see the changes you can make in your life not only by joining our community of athletes but also by supplementing it with a personal food and a nutrition philosophy. After all, abs are made in the kitchen. And where’s that kitchen? Right here at CrossFit Liberate. See you soon friends!
