Our CrossFit style training is effective and functional. People see results but it is not magic. You must be dedicated to consistently attending the training sessions. You also have to pay attention to your diet (and hydration). There are many articles about diet that we can point you to. I strongly believe it comes down to common sense by eating the proper amount and with most people this means moderation. A good diet must include the proper types of foods. Stop eating mayonnaise popsicles and drinking hot dog water (Thanks DCHAP). If you don’t know the proper foods to eat, go back to Elementary School and repeat the 3rd grade. Seriously, it comes down to common sense. If you would like to further target your diet, let us know and we will give you the proper information.
We also stress that people should compliment their WODs with other activities depending on their individual goals. If someone wants to get bigger and stronger, they should incorporate a few extra days of heavy lifting. If people want to lose fat and trim down, they should include a few days of other aerobic activities whether it is walking, running, biking, rowing, swimming and various sports. Playing sports are great ways to motivate yourself.
We all understand people’s schedules these days are busy but it only takes 30-60 minutes for a light aerobic activity and our classes are only 1 hour long. 3 or 4 WOD Classes and 3 activities per week = a total of 6 or 7 hours. There are 168 hours in a week. We don’t buy the “not enough time” excuse.
