Spread the CrossFit Love this February!
February 2, 2019
So the sugar and alcohol detox is coming to an end.
We know some never started, some did it for a week or two, and some stuck to their guns for all 30 days!
Regardless, we hope you move forward with a better awareness of the sugar contained in foods and how much of it you were consuming as well as the effect alcohol can have on sleep, blood sugar, performance, and food choices.
Keep the sugar and alcohol to a minimum and fill your diet with the healthy stuff!
Since February is here we'd like to help you celebrate the one you love.
Have you tried to convince your spouse or significant other to try (or come back to) CrossFit? Of course you've experienced the positive changes it's brought about in your life, so naturally you want those you love to be healthier--especially if you want them to stay around for awhile!
Anyone who refers a loved one who signs up for Foundations or monthly unlimited WODs in February will receive a free CrossFit 7220 sweatshirt!
Foundations has changed and is now 4 sessions one-on-one or in a very small group so we can tailor the class specifically toward the fitness level and needs of each individual. Those interested can email firstname.lastname@example.org
If they need some motivation, have them read this recent TIME Magazine article...
Not Exercising May Be Worse for Your Health Than Smoking
By GINA MARTINEZ October 20, 2018
It’s common knowledge that there are many benefits to being fit, but one large new study found that skipping out on the gym is particularly bad for your health.
In fact, the study claims not exercising may be more harmful to your health than smoking.
New findings in the journal JAMA Network Open, detail how researchers at the Cleveland Clinic studied 122,007 patients from 1991 to 2014, putting them under treadmill testing and later recording mortality rates. Researchers found a clear connection between a longer, healthier life and high levels of exercise.
The report calls for health care professionals to encourage patients to achieve and maintain a robust fitness routine.
“Cardiorespiratory fitness is inversely associated with long-term mortality with no observed upper limit of benefit,” the study says. “Extremely high aerobic fitness was associated with the greatest survival and was associated with benefit in older patients and those with hypertension.”
Dr Wael Jaber, co-author of the study, called the results surprising.
“Being unfit on a treadmill or in an exercise stress test has a worse prognosis, as far as death, than being hypertensive, being diabetic or being a current smoker,” Jaber told CNN. “We’ve never seen something as pronounced as this and as objective as this.”
The study also took a look at the risk of being overactive and found that “ultra” exercisers do not face higher risk of death: the research consistently found that the more a person exercises the lower their mortality rates.
