The Next Big Thing at Alvin CrossFit- Nutrition Coaching
I'm happy to announce the next big thing at Alvin CrossFit! There's one thing most of us struggle with that can be the difference between failure and success, not only in the gym, but just in general for our own health. That big thing is nutrition! Proper nutrition is THE foundation of fitness. It's so important in fact that Coach Glassman dedicates the first 26 words of his famous "World Class Fitness in 100 Words" to the topic of nutrition:
"Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports."

I've been researching nutrition programs for some time now cause I wanted something superior to what other services offer. What if you had a program that provided meal plans, telling you WHAT to eat, HOW MUCH to eat and WHEN to eat so you could optimize your training? Oh you think that's cool.. but wait, there's more!
What if you had an in-house nutrition coach instead of just being handed off to some faceless 3rd party online resource who really doesn't know WHO you are? Guess what. We've got you covered there too! Our very own coach Jordan will be that in-house coach and I (Coach Fergs) will back him up... but wait! Could there be more?
What if you could take advantage of a program that would actually TEACH you about nutrition along the way so you're better educated about making smart food choices, how they affect your daily life and gym performance as well as give you foundational nutrition knowledge so that it all makes sense? Guess what... we're gonna do that too! But wait... there's still MORE!
We have partnered with Nicole Marchand, a Registered Dietician (RD) who has created the most comprehensive and flexible program I could find to help with your nutrition shortfalls! She's helped hundreds of CrossFitters over the years. I can't stress how valuable it is to have an RD on our team to oversee the process! This is one of the biggest differences between our program and many of the other popular nutrition programs that CrossFitters use. How cool is that!?!
Here's a broad overview:
Our 1:1 Nutrition Coaching Program will be very unique and is designed to provide you with an easy, science-based approach to nutrition and wellness, using simple behavior modification strategies to create positive change without the stress of “dieting”. Imagine the confidence you could have walking into the grocery store or a restaurant knowing exactly what you should eat to not only feel great but look great too! The internet is filled with diet plans, recipe plans and other information but who has time to sift through all that!? There are a lot of programs out there telling you what NOT to eat or how to replace meals with supplements or a shake, leaving you wanting actual food, but what if we could attain this confidence through learning what TO eat by using whole foods with limited ingredients? Behold, a teaching program to build life-long skills one step at a time! There's no doubt your entire family will benefit from your newly found knowledge.
Not a member of Alvin CrossFit? NO PROBLEM. We're here to help you too cause at the end of the day, access to great nutrition knowledge shouldn't just be for CrossFitters!
