Happy 2017, y’all!

It’s January 1st and I am feeling so ambitious and pumped for the year ahead. Which is basically the opposite of how I normally feel at the beginning of January. (Lazy, lazy, so incredibly lazy.)

Usually I find myself in a rut after the holidays, as if all the heavy holiday eating is literally weighing me down and keeping me from doing anything. The short, frigid days don’t help my mood either, and the last thing I want to think about is cooking big fancy meals. So I wind up snacking a lot, and promising myself to eat more vegetables just as soon as it warms up a little. Yes, I am no stranger to the “I’m totally going to eat healthy this year” resolution, but most years I come up with a ton of excuses and just… don’t.

Why CrossFit Beats the Rest

So what sets CrossFit apart from all the other programmes out there?

CONSTANTLY VARIED

What I love about CrossFit is that you never quite know what you are coming up against. Every workout is different in length  and in the combination of exercises. One day you combine running with press ups and dips, the next day you are short stints on the rower combined with heavy deadlifts. And what thatleads to is being FIT in the true sense of the word. Cardio will improve your endurance and stamina, weightlifting and powerlifting movements improve your strength, speed, power and gymnastic and body weight movements help you develop balance, coordination, flexibility and accuracy. CrossFit is all about specializing in NOT specializing in order to be FIT for all life can throw at you. Nothing come close to helping you achieve this fitness like CrossFit.

The Do-Anywhere CrossFit Workout

No time? No equipment? No space? No problem. This travel-friendly, CrossFit-inspired workout will blast fat and sculpt muscle in minutes. No excuses!

Vacations generally present a number of fitness obstacles, and summer ones are no exception. For starters, there never seems to be enough room in your suitcase for bulky running shoes and the five pairs of wedges you just have to bring. Plus, it’s way too beautiful outside to be holed up in a gym (never mind a tiny hotel room), and your itinerary is jam-packed (you know, with all that poolside lounging).

5 World Class Basics For Crossfit Nutrition

Practicing CrossFit without any regard to nutrition is similar to only having “one oar in the water,” according to CrossFit Founder and CEO Greg Glassman. Diet is crucial to optimising health and performance, supporting the reasoning as to why Crossfit Nutrition is the foundation of the CrossFit pyramid.

‘Sound nutrition, obtained from a high-quality diet in optimal quantities—as determined by the individual—provides the necessary foundation for continued progress and maximum adaptations from the program’ CrossFit HQ.

THE EAT THIS, NOT THAT! DIET FOR CROSSFIT

When it comes to effective, efficient, calorie-torching, heart-pumping workouts, CrossFit tops our list for surefire paths to fitness prowess. And we’re not complaining about all the eye candy of chiseled abs we see at the gym, either. But a high-intensity gym regimen is only part of the equation when it comes to healthy, sustained weight loss and sculpting lean, toned muscle.

“Given the intensity of CrossFit workouts, an essential component of a good CrossFit diet is protein. Protein stabilizes blood sugar, provides energy and the fuel for workouts. CrossFitters should aim for approximately one gram of protein per kilogram of weight, so an average 130-pound woman should have at least 65 grams of protein while a 200-pound man should have about 100 grams of protein,” explains Dr. Tasneem Bhatia, MD, also known as “Dr.Taz,” a weight loss expert and author of What Doctors Eat and The 21-Day Belly Fix.

Are CrossFit Workouts A Good Choice For Reaching Weight Loss And Health Goals?

CrossFit and “CrossFit-style workouts” (Some gyms use CrossFit style workouts but aren’t actually CrossFit boxes) are exploding in popularity across the country as the next best thing for getting in shape, improving health, and losing weight.

I’m not going to start a controversy and call CrossFit a fad — because it’s not, it’s a legitimate sport — but if your goal is to lose weight and improve health, we have to understand some distinctions between sport exercise and smart exercise.

Nutrition

This is a list of frequently asked questions we get about nutrition and links to the resources we’ve created to answer them. You can find everything you need to know to get started with a sound CrossFit diet  in our resources section here. But most of all, you need to know that nutrition is not about following a diet. 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. Start by educating yourself using the information below.

10 Of The Best Workouts For Weight Loss

Before we get into the best workouts for weight loss and how to use exercise as a tool in your weight loss journey, let’s make two things clear. First, there are a huge number of reasons to work out that have absolutely nothing to do with losing weight. From mental health benefits to better sleep to boosted immunity, regular exercise is an essential component of a healthy lifestyle. Exercise doesn’t have to be about losing weight, and for a huge number of people, it isn’t.

And that brings us to the second thing: If your goal is to lose weight, you should know that working out isn’t enough on its own to actually make that happen. There’s so much else that goes into weight loss and body fat loss; in fact, exercise isn’t even technically necessary to lose weight for most people. We wouldn’t ever recommend a weight loss regimen that doesn’t include exercise, though, because exercise is good for you and it’s a healthy way to live. And on that note, even if you are doing everything “right”—working out regularly, eating appropriately—lifestyle habits like sleep and stress, and health conditions (think thyroid issues, to name just one of many) can get in the way of your weight loss efforts. Weight loss is an extremely personal journey that doesn’t look or work the exact same way from one person to the next.
