Workout Nutrition - What Should I Eat Before My Workout?

Workout Nutrition - What Should I Eat Before My Workout?

Have you ever wondered if you need to eat differently when you’re working out? What you should eat before, during and after your workouts depends on your goals. However, unless you are a serious athlete training for a very specific goal, basic good nutrition is generally all you really need and can help you work towards many common goals such as improving performance, gaining muscle, and losing weight.

Let’s Talk Back...

As we age, we often find our bodies more creaky and achy.  Our hope, at CrossFit Erie, is to help you prevent that feeling for as long as possible.  We have many tools that we take advantage of, but I want to “showcase” one piece of equipment: The Reverse Hyper.  

When purchasing our equipment, some people suggested we should wait to add this to our gym.   I feel really strongly that this piece of equipment, if used often, can help rehab those of you with nagging back pain and keep some of you from having back pain.

I want to encourage you to hop on the reverse hyper, before or after class, 3 times a week.  If you do not have back pain, that is fantastic.  Think of it as preventative medicine!  

We would be happy to show you how to use this properly.  Here is a short video to familiarize yourself with:

Almost There!

What began as a conversation and lead to many inquiries, is about to become a reality! We can hardly believe it!

Construction on the bathroom is half done. The logo is on the wall, signs on the door and electrical is finished. We just keep checking off those boxes. Next week, we will have our Certificate of Occupancy and a semi-truck full of Rogue equipment will be delivered. Classes will officially begin on November 5th, 2018.

Coaching classes and helping you live your happiest, healthiest life is what we look forward to. If you aren’t a member and are interested in CrossFit Erie, we would love to sit down and discuss your goals. Schedule a no-sweat intro with us today.

Method or Madness?

Method or Madness?

Is there a method, or is it all madness?

In CrossFit, we have a different workout everyday.  One day we could be doing deadlifts and burpees and the next day we could be running and doing push ups.  The variety is a key component to what we do.  The scheduling and planning of the workouts is called programming.
