CrossFit Open 2021

 

The Open Starts in 100 Days

Each year, hundreds of thousands of CrossFit athletes at every level take part in five workouts over five weeks in the world’s largest participatory sporting event. The Open is designed to be accessible to everyone from beginners to professionals across all ages, backgrounds, and levels of fitness.

The Open is also the first step on the road to the CrossFit Games, the ultimate proving grounds for the Fittest on Earth. Changes in the season structure are on the horizon (more to come at a later date).

 

Alcoholidays

Alcohol can be part of a healthy lifestyle if you enjoy drinking.

If alcohol is consumed, it should be in moderation- up to 1 drink per day for woman and up to 2 drinks per day for men.

This week we will be posting daily tips on how to stay healthy while also occasionally enjoying an alcoholic beverage.

Describe your goals when you started with the SCCF Nutrition program to where they are now? “I was focused on losing weight only.”
 
What does eating healthy mean to you? What has worked best for you? “Eating healthy feels like a special treat I do for myself.  I like Foodiefit, prepared meals.  They’re delicious and convenient.”
 
What are some of the accomplishments you have had in and out of the gym as a result of changing your eating habits? “The biggest accomplishment is my continued health.  Not just performing well but cardiovascular health, and longevity.  It’s a marathon, not a sprint.”
 
Anna, you’ve been through a lot the last few years. How has focusing on your whole health helped you be resilient to all the change? “I feel bulletproof now that nutrition is dialed in.  It’s not that adversity won’t strike but I feel prepared for whatever comes up, good or bad.”
 
What will your health and fitness look like in the next 5 years? “Probably about the same with more mobility and yoga.”
 
What would you say to someone who is thinking about signing up for the nutrition program? “Do it!  My only regret was that I hadn’t done it sooner.”

 

Beyond The Scale

Did you know that numbers changing on a scale isn’t the only way to measure progress? It’s alright to want to lose weight, but it’s not everything.

There are several markers of progress that don’t involve the scale! Improved mood, better sleep, and more energy just to name a few.

Look at the changes you see in your behavior and your mindset. Rather than focusing on numbers, pursue and celebrate non-scale wins!

How do you measure your progress?
