Monday, April 2
If you were around the gym last week you probably got asked during a whiteboard meeting what you ate for breakfast or dinner. And while we all love to laugh and joke during the question of the day, we did want to emphasize that nutrition is the base of fitness.
Without diving too deep into the CrossFit Level 1 seminar, I wanted to reiterate that everything starts with what you are putting into your body. I would also put quality sleep right next to nutrition, but we will save that for another day.
The graphic shows CrossFit's Theoretical Hierarchy of the Development of an Athlete. Nutrition is the base of the pyramid. It's where it all starts, and it's the biggest piece of the structure. Yes, nutrition is more important than anything when it comes to losing weight.
You've heard it before, but I'll say it again - you can't out exercise a bad diet. This isn't just about weight loss either. This is about your health. A good diet includes all of the nutrients you need to function at your best. And usually when you're giving your body what it needs, amazing things like weight loss, slimmer waist lines, and feeling good go with it.
So, when we ask you what you ate for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, it's not because we're trying to embarass or call anyone out. It's because we are here to get you fit and healthy. And that all starts with nutrition.
