What is CrossFit?

CrossFit is essentially cardio, gymnastics and strength training rolled into one eclectic, efficient package. We perform pullups, pushups, handstands and box jumps.  We lift weights, swing kettlebells, climb ropes and throw medicine balls.  We run, row, jump rope and use gymnastics rings. We mix all of these elements together in challenging and creative ways so that you never get bored.     

Our coaches are responsible for ensuring that your workout is not easy nor impossible, that your form and range of motion are correct, that your speed and intensity are appropriate, that the exercises and weights are adjusted to your fitness level, and that you have a plan for long-term success.

By committing to our program, you will learn new skills, improve your nutrition habits, get stronger, feel and look better and improve your quality of life.

Eat Meat & Vegetables, Nuts & Seeds, Some Fruit, Little Starch, No Sugar

Half Rotisserie Chicken, Sauteed Spinach in Butter and Garlic. Simple, Nutritious, Delicious.

The "Better" Food Pyramid (courtesy of David Getoff):

Non-Starchy Vegetables: 4-8 Servings/Day. Half your plate for 2-3 meals.

Animal Protein: 2-3 Servings of 3-6 ounces/Day: Hormone, antibiotic-free and range fed if possible.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Coconut Butter, Butter or Ghee (all organic): 1+ Tablespoon/Day. Your body needs these fats.

Raw Nuts and Seeds: Consumed daily as a snack or added to salads, etc. Limit quantity to a handful.

Whole Grains and Beans: 1-5 servings/WEEK. Many grains may have to be eliminated completely with GI tract/bowel disorders or sensitivities.

Fresh, Raw Fruit: 0-4 servings/day. Reduce/eliminate with cancer, diabetes or if weight loss is your goal.

Processed Grain Products: As infrequently as possible. Breads, pastas, bagels, cereals, crackers, etc.

Sugar, alcohol: 1-5 times/month (combined)

Standard Soy Foods: Rarely if ever.

"There is no treatment or drug which can overcome or negate the effects of a poor diet, inadequate nutrition, lack of exercise and an unhealthy lifestyle." - David Getoff
