Carb Cycling Journey – Week 2

What is  carb cycling and what are the benefits? Carb cycling is an advanced strategy that should only be used if you are already well versed and practiced in nutritional tracking. You gotta walk before you can run, do a pull up before you do a muscle-up, etc, etc… I do not recommend carb cycling […]

CFR Nutrition – Carb Cycling Journey

Carb cycling! I needed a new challenge  in my life and I’ve wanted to try to something different with my nutrition for awhile. I’ve decided not to compete this season so it was a perfect time to make this change!  It’s time to play around with carb cycling and nutrient timing to see how it […]

CFR BOOTCAMP

When I was first presented with the idea of coaching a bootcamp, I was not excited. I love CrossFit, and specifically, technical and heavy barbell movements. I love teaching these lifts, helping people move better and become more proficient at them, and watching people put up big numbers! The more we started playing with the […]

We are very excited to announce our CFR Nutrition Challenge 2019! I know you have seen our recent Instagram posts about the challenge and are patiently awaiting the details.

Staying On Track Through The Weekend

Everyone wants to tighten their nutrition. Everyone wants to eat better. For most of us, this is easy Mon-Fri. Being in routine, waking up, going to the gym, working, having meals that we’ve already prepped – it’s easy when it’s all the same for 5 days straight. Then the weekend comes. We’re out of routine. We sleep in. […]

A Day In The Life

What Are Macros?

At the very base of the CrossFit Pyramid of Health & Fitness, is NUTRITION. Why is nutrition the base of fitness? Our bodies rely on the energy we receive from food to perform all of its normal functions. Even when we are sleeping and seemingly resting or sedentary, our bodies are using energy to perform […]

Get Off Your Butt

Let me open up my life to you guys and give you some insight into my daily routine. I am a very busy mother of 2. I work at two different gyms, with my schedule always changing and rearranging. I am going through a separation. I am trying to be the best athlete I can […]

Fitness & Nutrition Perspective

What is fitness or rather, what does fitness mean to me? Does it mean burning calories and being “skinny”? No. Does it mean lifting dumbbells, barbells and having huge, jacked muscles? Also no. To me fitness means maximizing my body’s potential for physical performance. To me, fitness doesn’t mean physique. Not that I don’t think […]

Just Do You

Why do people some people always need to have opinions about others. I hear so many judgements and criticisms about people every single day. People seem to think they know what’s best for other people. They have a better way of doing things, a better way people should run their own lives. I hear people […]
