  • Proper Nutrition Needs for an Active Lifestyle

    A well balanced training program geared towards improvement should have strength training, conditioning, sleep, nutrition, and of course commitment. Unfortunately the most often overlooked when it comes to novice or intermediate athletes is nutrition. Planning and implementing a well-balanced nutrition plan is of paramount importance in relation to any sort of physical training. After all food is literally the fuel we run on. To meet adequate nutritional requirements a diet should include lean proteins, whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats. Healthy foods are full of macronutrients and micronutrients. Macronutrients comprised of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats, ....

  • Are Sport Supplements Really Helping You?

    Dietary and performance supplements are a topic that is frequently discussed in the fitness world. It is a multi billion-dollar industry in the United States and promises “huge gains” or “major fat loss”. The fitness world is bombarded with advertisements for various proteins, creatine, amino acids, and thermogenic products for weight loss. But where do these supplements fit in with our regular nutrition or diet? As we talked about in an earlier post foods are made up of macro and micronutrients. Macronutrients are literally fuel for our bodies and micronutrients are the vitamins and minerals responsible for disease prevention, development, and wellbeing. ....

  • CrossFit is Functional

    CrossFit is Functional CrossFit combines a large selection of functional movements and performs them at varying degrees of intensity in order to prepare us for similar movements in everyday life. You want examples? Well every time we stand up we are coming out of a squat. Anytime we pick up an object from the floor we are essentially deadlifting it. Bring that same object to chest or shoulder height is comparable to the result of a clean and putting that object on a shelf or location over our heads is liken to the overhead press. We are already doing most of the movements used in CrossFit on a daily basis. What we as coaches want to do is teach you to do them safely and correctly by ....

  • Lifting Weights for Fat Loss

    We live in a world where fad diets and celebrity endorsers are trying to convince us that you can lose weight with the pizza and cookies diet. It can be hard to figure out the best methods for fat loss while being bombarded with information from all angles and only a fraction of it being fact based. Many people have tried diets or a workout routine and seen moderate success then stopped and immediately gained back the weight. My goal is to help you understand the best ways to lose weight and successfully keep it off. If your first thought when thinking about losing weight is running or aerobic workouts then you are like most Americans. Our minds lead us there because it is ....

  • Why Your Gym Wants You to Fail

    Why do we join a gym? Is it to feel insecure in a public place? To become part of the IN crowd? Or maybe to become one of the high fiving bros or spin queen? My guess is none of the above. Most people join gyms because they want to look and feel better. It is as simple as that. So why do so many people fail at reaching these goals? It’s simple, because most gyms want you to fail. I want to preface the rest of this post by stating that I am not trying to personally attack any business or business method. I am merely pointing out facts that exist in this industry and from those facts certain conclusions can be made. I worked in big box aka Globo gyms for about 6 years ....

  • Unilateral Strength Training

    What is Unilateral Strength Training? To put it simply unilateral strength training is training one side of the body at a time. For example, a barbell squat is considered a bilateral movement or exercise because you are standing on both feet using both of your legs to lift the weight. A pistol squat would be an example of a unilateral exercise because the bulk of your lifting is coming from just one leg. Unilateral VS Bilateral Both unilateral and bilateral training have their strengths, benefits, and weaknesses. In order to become a well-rounded and experienced athlete it is important to incorporate both training techniques into ones routine. Unfortunately unilateral ....

  • Will CrossFit Make Me Lose Fat?

    How is Fat Stored and Burned? When we consume fats in our diet our bodies break it down so it can go into the bloodstream. From there we either burn it as energy or store it for future energy. Fat contains 9 kcals (units of energy) per gram. More than double those of proteins or carbohydrates. Fat is stored throughout the body in adipocytes aka fat cells. The amount of adipocytes in our body is usually confirmed by early adulthood and it is rare for this to change as we age. When our fat cells store more fat they will enlarge which brings about inevitable weight gain. The way to reduce the size and storage of fat cells is to force our bodies to rely on them for energy either ....

  • Excessive Sugar and it's Toxicity

    What is sugar? We add it to our coffee, bake it in cookies, or sprinkle it on our cereal for extra “flavor”. Unfortunately it is also packed into many everyday foods and snacks such as soda, pastries, fruit juices, and dairy products. Sugar is commonly thought of as tasty and refreshing, but in reality when consumed in the quantities that most Americans consume it in it is considered toxic. It is often debated just how much sugar the average American ingests on a daily basis. Depending on the study you read it can be anywhere from 20-32 teaspoons per day. That’s 4 grams of granulated sugar per teaspoon. The American Heart Association recommends only 6 teaspoons ....
