San Francisco CrossFit coaches believe that a commitment to exercise is only part of the equation in achieving your fitness goals. Establishing a clean eating program is fundamental to achieving real results in the CrossFit program. If one of your goals is to change your body composition, exercise â€“ even CrossFit â€“ will not be enough. At San Francisco CrossFit, we donâ€™t prescribe fad diets. Instead we recommend eating a balanced diet that will help your body run at its optimal level.
What Do We Think Is Optimal Nutrition?
Â At San Francisco CrossFit, our nutrition approach is simple: 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.
While our coaches are not nutritionists and donâ€™t prescribe nutrition plans, but we have experience training individuals of all fitness levels and have observed the most efficient and greatest fitness successes from those who eat a balanced diet of nutrient-rich foods. Our coaches incorporate a discussion about optimal nutrition into all of our programs. If you think you need a more tailored nutrition program, we are happy to refer you to a local nutritionist.
San Francisco CrossFit also offers bi-annual â€śLeaning Challenges,â€ť in the spring and fall. Our members are invited to participate in a friendly and supportive competition to clean up their nutrition, improve their athletic performance, and look better naked. Participants put money into a kitty, take before and after pictures, and commit to logging everything they eat in our convenient online food logging system.
