Just kidding: CrossFit is hard. In fact, it’s just hard ENOUGH.
But CrossFit is so successful because it makes exercising simple. You know what time to show up; you’re told exactly what to do to get optimal benefit for your time. You push a lot harder than you would on your own, because you workout with a group of training partners. All you really have to do is show up–and if you DON’T show up, we’ll reach out to you. Seriously. You’re lucky we don’t come to your house.
As soon as you sign up, exercise becomes the easy part.
But we’re not with you all day and all night. Your push-up partner from noon group isn’t leaning on the kitchen counter beside you at 9pm saying, “Stay away from the [processed] carbs.”
We need to help you more with your nutrition. We know that. But we need you.
“If you’re working out hard but going crazy on carbs, you’re not doing CrossFit.” -Greg Glassman
Greg is the man who started CrossFit. There are over 15,000 gyms worldwide now who coach his exercise program–the most effective in the world. Torque is one of them. He’s been a role model to me for ten years.
“You can’t just get people off the couch. You have to get them off the [processed] carbs.” -GG
You may ask, well, why aren’t people just eating better? They’re sure training hard.
Well, “Because exercise is the easy part. You make it fun for people. You have this whole community in Torque of care, support and fun. But you don’t do that well enough for nutrition.”
Now, we do have the most caring and fun coaches.
We also have an InBody – the most reliable measuring device for body composition in the world. It’s a $10,000 machine. And we don’t use it to measure your progress enough.
Schedule a goal setting session with one of our coaches. These are kickstarts meetings to help you get onto a sustainable nutrition plan for life. We focus on a single factor that can give you the Bright Spot you need to move on to larger change. I believe in that.
