Nutrition is the foundation for a healthy body and vital for maximizing your workouts and recovery.
Proper nutrition is a lifestyle. Don’t try to fool yourself into thinking that you can get proper nutrition without altering your lifestyle. There is no easy answer or magic bullet. Only education and consistently sound choices every day will sustain a lifestyle of proper nutrition. Nutrition also shouldn’t become an obsession that inhibits your daily life.Everyone lets loose from time to time and shares some birthday cake or ice cream with friends. Finding the happy medium is the key to achieving your goals, and we want to help you find that medium.
It's important to understand what the meaning of the word "diet" is.... Interestingly enough the orgin of the word diet comes from... Middle English diete, from Anglo-French, from Latin diaeta, from Greek diaita, literally, manner of living, from diaitasthaito lead one's life. First Known Use: 13th century.
Your "diet" is the food and beverages you you consume daily, and we look at it as a way of life, not just a temporary fix. Eating healthy does not have to be complicated. In fact, eating healthy is actually very simple!
At CrossFit Elk River we believe that the Paleo, or "Caveman" Diet is the most effective and beneficial for optimal health. However, it's important to find out what works best with your own body and your lifestyle. Nutrition education and coaching is included in your membership as we feel it is vital for optimal results no matter what your goal is!
