If your goals include to feel healthier, happier, live longer or perform better I think it’s essential that you spend 5 minutes reading this post. We’re meant to thrive in life and it’s not meant to be difficult to do so. With a little knowledge, guidance and some prods in the right direction, we can ensure that we make that we maximise our potential and live the lives we are meant to live. You’re already training which is awesome, reading this blog will help you be even more awesome. 

Our World is Changing

Being a member of a CrossFit gym is a strong statement to ourselves. Being a member of a CrossFit gym is a statement that we value our health and are willing to act to improve/protect it. It’s no secret that our lifestyles are becoming increasingly sedentary due to the nature of our jobs and the world in which we live. For hundreds of thousands of years we have spent our days walking, running, climbing and lifting things. It’s only over the last 40 years that we have moved into lifestyles that require and encourage us to sit. If we consider that Homo Sapiens (that’s us) have been around for approximately 200,000 years (most likely longer), that means that our new low activity lifestyles account for 0.025% of our existence on this planet. We’re born to move and when we stop moving serious physical and mental health problems arise, problems each and every one of us have seen and have likely experienced. 

Solutions to our Problems

When recognising this issue, the majority of us do not have the option to chop in our jobs and become full time goat herders or gardeners. CrossFit founder Greg Glassman found a solution to our modern, very vexing problem – Intensity.

If we have significantly less time to move, that’s ok – We can make up for the decreased volume with increased quality and intensity. In fact, functional movements at high intensity are so effective that we can predominantly work out for less than 20 minutes a day and experience incredible fitness prowess. That sounds wonderful ‘Doing less and getting more? give me some of that!’ But as most of you reading this know, working out at intensity and mastering movement is hard.

By being a member of a CrossFit gym you’ve committed to addressing a serious problem. You show, on an almost daily basis, your willingness to work hard to address that problem. CrossFit gyms create incredible environments, provide the best training program in the world for improving fitness and highly professional, committed coaches to deliver that program. They provide facilities and equipment needed (unlike many other gyms) to develop and maintain a healthy body. You know this, you experience the benefits of this, your passionate about it, you like to talk about it and you can’t believe you didn’t get into it sooner.

The reason I start with this is because I think it’s important that each of us understand how much we value our own health, and how much we’re already doing to protect it. We’re not just training half-heartedly because we know we should be moving more, we’ve gone out of our way to find the most effective professional training there is. It’s also important that we give ourselves credit for the hard work we are already doing and have already done. Just walking through the doors of a CrossFit gym is an achievement in itself that, unfortunately, many will never find the courage to do. Considering that we care about our health enough to do what we do, each and every one of us should understand something very important.

CrossFit (or any type of fitness) is not enough on its own, to achieve peak physical fitness and wellbeing.

You Need More Than Just Fitness

Fitness is a key component to being a healthy and happy individual. CrossFit is the best way to achieve and continue to achieve true fitness. Physical fitness is just one component of many that contribute towards our health and wellbeing. Unfortunately, like our increasingly sedentary jobs are encouraging us to move less, it seems that many aspects of modern life are geared towards pulling us away from a healthy lifestyle. As previously mentioned, fitness is a key component to a healthy happy life, but it’s not the only component. I identify four key components – The power 4, that are pivotal in either improving or damaging our fitness and wellbeing.  Let’s identify and briefly explore them:

The Power Four

  1. Exercise
  2. Nutrition 
  3. Sleep 
  4. Stress Management

Exercise

Most of us understand the importance of exercise to physical and mental wellbeing. We’ve already identified the problems that we face and how effective our approach is to tackling those problems. Unfortunately, a lot of people in today’s world that don’t have the joy of a sport or an active job tend to have negative experiences with exercise and fitness. People join gyms that are designed primarily to sell memberships on contracts. When the inevitable happens and people realise they don’t have a clue what to do in gym (gym franchises know this will happen that’s why the contract is there) their only options are to spend more money on personal training, keep going alone with minimal results or, the most common option just don’t go at all and continue paying. The result of this is that many people become disappointed with themselves and fall into believing that fitness just isn’t for them. The reality is people are just being failed by a system designed to make money, not to help people. 

The fitness industry is unfortunately, full of stuff and people that have little to do with fitness which again leads to people being confused and developing a negative relationship with fitness. The right exercise makes us feel good and healthier. The right exercise improves our flexibility, strengthens our bones, muscles, hearts and lungs. Fitness should make us more capable in life, more able to throw our kids in the air, more able to carry our shopping, more able get up off the floor into our old age. What we know helps us achieve this very well is constantly varied, functional movements at high intensity. This is the definition of CrossFit. 

 

Nutrition

Having a poor diet when exercising regularly will inhibit our bodies from developing the way they want to develop. It’s a fact that you can’t out train a bad diet. Eating poorly and drinking calories stops or significantly restricts our bodies ability to burn fat and build muscle. Not only this but it encourages our bodies to store body fat, regardless of exercise levels. Again, regardless of exercise and fitness levels, eating a diet high in alcohol, processed foods and processed animal products (meat and dairy) puts us at a significantly increased risk of heart disease and cancer, whether we are overweight or not. Of course, the modern food industry is overloaded with everything I have just mentioned because it makes money, more money than you can comprehend, you don’t ever see apples on buy one get one free for a reason.

An ever-increasing body of research and science is mounting to show that a predominantly plant based diet including eggs and fish in moderation is best for the health and longevity of us and our planet. Avoiding processed foods, cheap meats, sugar sweetened beverages, salty snacks and excessive alcohol consumption is essential for health. We’ll be providing a lot more information on diet, healthy meals and useful tips in the coming weeks/months. For now, we want you to understand how important it is to your health and performance to eat well.

Sleep

Many of us understand the importance of exercise and are willing to act to change it. Most of us understand the importance of nutrition but due to our busy lives and our terrible food industry, find it a little more challenging to address it. It’s amazing though, how little we’re educated on sleep. From my time in the military I learnt that sleep depravation is one the worst forms of torture that you can inflict on someone. The Guiness World Records have removed the sleep depravation record because it’s so dangerous… yet most of pay little attention to how much sleep we get. Sleep is, pivotal to our physical fitness and wellbeing.

A goal for many of us is to lose excess body fat. Neuroscientist and sleep expert Matthew Walker reveals in his book ‘Why we Sleep’ that consistently sleeping for less than 6 hours a night, regardless of how you feel after, inhibits your body’s ability to burn fat and therefore brings about weight-loss primarily through the loss of lean muscle tissue. In simple terms we lose muscle, maintain body fat and struggle to gain strength.

We need 7-9 hours of sleep a night. Before the invention of artificial lighting, factory whistles and alarm clocks we would have slept when it was dark. We now have tv’s, computers and smart phones with increasingly bright screens. Screens and lighting trick our brains into thinking it’s still day time and stop us falling asleep naturally. Lack of sleep is extremely detrimental to our health and fitness. Our bodies recover and regenerate when sleeping, body fat is burnt and muscle tissue is generated (we get slimmer and leaner). Although we may be able to get by on minimal sleep, we are certainly not able to thrive. We’ll be posting a lot more on sleep, providing useful tips and helping you out in the coming weeks/months. Right now, you can read coach Reece Reynolds blog on Sleep HERE.

Stress Management

Stress is an inevitable and regular part of life that we all face. It’s hopeless trying to cut out stress but important to learn how to recognise, handle and switch off from it. Stress is actually key to growth and development. Exercise is the intentional stressing of the body in order to force it to repair a little bit fitter and stronger. Mental stress is a very real thing. When we stress and worry excessively, the impacts on our health can be dramatic. I would go as far to say that handling our stress is more important than exercise and nutrition. Excessive worry and stress forces our bodies to rely on adrenaline which becomes exhausting. Not only does it tire us out, again, it forces our bodies into storage mode which stops us from being able to burn fat/build muscle. The risk of serious disease when we are chronically stressed is also significantly increased. I’m not writing this to make you stress about being stressed. It’s essential to understand how detrimental stress can be in order to affectively start addressing it.  The first stage is recognition and acceptance. 

Historically, our stresses have been much more serious than they are today, but we have also been in very close knit supportive communities. Throughout history people have shared and talked about their stresses. Now we work longer hours and spend significantly more time alone or communicating through social media. When we stop talking to people regularly our stresses and problems mount up in our minds. Stress is, like the rest of the power 4, a huge subject which we will be examining more and providing useful tips and links on in the coming weeks and months through our blog. For now, we should understand that stress management is as important to our health as our 400m run time.

All of us know that CrossFit works, we’ve do it and we repeatedly feel the benefits of it. We’re most likely fitter than we have ever been in our lives through our CrossFit training regardless of our age. Problems arise when, because we know that it works, we rely solely on our training to improve all areas of our health and fitness. 

Our lives have historically provided us with what we need to live well. When looking at healthy cultures people don’t make good health decisions, they just do what they need to do to survive. They are active every day maintaining their gardens their land and animals for food. They eat natural food that the land supplies. They sleep when it’s dark and wake up when it’s light, and they belong to close knit supportive communities. They talk about their troubles and their worries which helps them manage their stress. They don’t choose to do this, they don’t make a conscious effort to eat well, to exercise, to sleep regularly and to destress it’s what they have to do to survive.

The Choices we Make

We are now in a time where we have freedom and choice like never before. This is great but it also means that being fit and healthy is no longer just a natural process, we have to make decisions and take actions to be fit and healthy. You’ve already demonstrated that you want to make good healthy decisions by joining a CrossFit gym. I hope that through our gym and through our blog we can help you continue to make more good decisions and avoid the many traps being made by people/corporations that are after pure financial gain, to the detriment of your health.

Mindset – Little Voices, Big Gains

Written by Reece Reynolds

The timer finally beeps. You drop your barbell as the sound of bumper plates hitting the ground echos in a chorus around the room. It’s done. You hit the ground and try to regain some sense of clarity, just like everyone else whom you have volunteered to suffer with.

A feeling, that, if you’re reading this, you’re probably somewhat familiar with. Whilst you high five, fist bump and scoop yourself up from the floor, that addictive sense of achievement we sets in. You’ve done it; you stuck it out even when it was tough. You’re proud, not only of yourself but everyone that dragged themselves through it with you.

Now maybe as that jubilation subsides, the internal conversation begins. “Did I work hard enough?” – “Could I of RX’d that?”. That conversation you have with yourself, where does it come from?

I want you to think back to the last time you struggled through a work out or training session. The last time you thought you were going to have to stop or you might “actually die”. What were you saying to yourself whilst going through that? What did your mantra sound like? Quite often it’s that little voice in our heads telling us we’ve had enough, or we can’t do anymore that slows us down, not our physical ability. But is it important to try and address this voice from within?

Yes.. Yes.. Yes.. I don’t believe the importance of recognising how you talk to yourself can be understated. Not only does it affect your training but over time it can affect how we perceive ourselves and the world around us.

That conversation you have is also known as your internal dialogue. It’s the the little voice in your head that can sometimes or often feel like it controls you. I’m going to let you in on a little secret – it doesn’t. You control the voice. And with a little time and practice you can make that little voice a powerfully positive ally.

 

 

Understanding that we can and having the conviction to try and change that internal dialogue is hard work. But hard work pays off. If we put consistent time and effort into addressing our internal dialogue we’re going to begin seeing improvements further than the walls of the gym. But lets start inside the gym:

4 x 400m runs for time. Run number 3, about 200m in what is that voice saying? 

For some of us this might change depending on the day – bad day, feeling some of that negative emotion, “Just stop – this hurts, it doesn’t matter if you slow down you don’t care anyway”

For others it might be the internal pressure of competition “You have to pass him” – “Don’t slow down now you’ve got to win”

What if by recognising how we talk to ourselves we can start to change the narrative. We can begin to control that internal dialogue.

Now this might not be easy, or come naturally but I promise, like with your fitness,  if  you start and commit it will only get easier.

Start with simple positive affirmations. “You have got this” – “You can push harder” – “You are strong enough”

From there everyones journey is slightly different – Whatever your reasons for turning up and busting your ass week in week out are yours and yours alone. So whatever your goals may include;

  • Weight loss
  • Building muscle
  • Sporting performance
  • Better mobility
  • Improving health
  • Just feeling better

I want you to remind yourself of that when it gets hard. Because no matter what your goals, the only way to achieve them is through long term, consistent commitment to your training. And it’s going to be so much easier to stay consistently committed, if you attack every day with that more positive mindset. That internal dialogue shouting “You’ve got this” is going to get you infinitely further than “whats the point”.

 

 

A quick chat with yourself isn’t going to take you from 1 to 15 unbroken muscle ups in a session (trust me I’ve tried). What it will do is strengthen your grit, your ability to dig deep and to get the best out of every day. Eventually those 15 unbroken muscle ups, that first strict pull up, those goals you’ve been chasing; they will come. Because you have the strength to keep going. 

But the results don’t stop there, the best thing about CrossFit is its functionality. The exercises we do carry over to outside of the gym; Deadlift – pick the shopping up; Push press – getting your bag in that overhead locker; Wallball – throwing your niece in the air.

Training your internal dialogue is no different. Big presentation coming up? “You’ve got this”. Kids playing up “Breathe, be positive”. It’s all part and parcel of how we deal with challenges and adversity in all aspects of life. Whether for you thats ‘Fran’ or a job interview, honing the skill and strength to control your internal dialogue will carry over and help you achieve more than you thought you were capable of. And we are all capable of more.

Nutrition 101  – Start Here

Written by Mike Jones

We know that you take your health seriously, that’s why you’re a member of a gym that you train at regularly and you train hard. We also know you’re the kind of person that puts effort in to make positive changes if you know they will be beneficial to the health of you and your family. That’s why we need to talk about food.

What you eat is just as, if not more important to your health, the way you look and the way you feel as your physical activity. It’s a fact of life that you can’t out-train a bad diet. If you are training with us at least three/four times a week then you can be as confident as we are that you’re training enough and  well enough to be healthy. When you combine the quality and quantity of exercise that you are doing with good nutrition the list of rewards becomes never ending. From a coaching perspective, in those that eat well we see improved performance, mood, energy, focus along with decreased body fat to mention very few. You’re also much more likely to train consistently, for the rest of your life, when you are getting the results you deserve for the work you put in at the gym. Poor nutrition hinders those results and often results in ‘giving up’ on trying the healthier lifestyle.

So, what do we need to do and why do so many of us struggle? We’re going to be producing regular content on nutrition, but before we get into it we’d like to make sure we’re all on the same page about what we need to know. There are four main points that we focus on and that you should understand to make a positive change in nutritional health.

1. Why do we struggle?

 We’re the most overweight nation in Western Europe. 27% of our population is clinically obese, another 36% are overweight… why?. Why in the UK (and the world) do we struggle so much with diet? Firstly, it’s not our fault. Secondly, I’m going to sum it up with three simple points:

  1. Our country is overloaded with more ‘food’ than we could ever eat 
  2. The vast majority of this ‘food’ is actually ‘food products’ aka not real food
  3. There’s a lot of profit in the production and sale of food products that make us overweight and sick

Cheap ‘food’ makes a hell of a lot of money (think in the billion regions) but makes us really unhealthy. Because it makes so much money, it has a whole industry making it and pushing it. It’s in our faces and we’re constantly told to consume it. Cheap ‘food’ is ‘scientifically engineered’ to trigger hormone reactions in our bodies that make us want more at the same time as suppressing hormones that tell us we’re full. This results in us wanting and eating too much of the bad stuff and usually feeling guilty about it after. We’re also so bombarded with rubbish food that people are losing track of what’s healthy and what’s not. A lot of food companies are very ‘creative’ with their branding and labelling of products and able to make us believe that really unhealthy products are healthy. 

If we don’t take some time to understand the ‘food industry’ and what it is, we’re not going to be in a very good position to avoid it’s traps… there’s a lot of traps.

2. Eating well isn’t complicated

Us humans are really good at complicating things, we also want to be really good at whatever we’re doing. So when we decide to sort out our nutrition it often looks something like ‘I’m going to get a customised meal plan, I’m going to join a club and track every calorie that I eat, I’m going to get an app that tracks exactly how much I should be eating and at what times’.  

Most of us have been there at some point. Eating well isn’t a complicated task, we don’t need measuring spoons and weighing scales, or even books. We need to eat real home cooked food and understand that it is our fuel. Meat (or a protein supplement) and vegetables, nuts and seed, some fruit little starch and no sugar. Eat as natural wholesome foods, eat as many greens and vegetables as you can stomach and don’t drink calories. Three meals a day is more than enough for the majority of the population and a good breakfast is a part of that. 

The process of improving our eating habits may not be an easy one for all of us, but the fundamentals of what you should and shouldn’t be eating really are quite simple and usually obvious. 

3. You do need to learn – but not a lot

Where we want to be, is in a place where we understand our nutrition and how it affects our bodies. We want to have a positive relationship with food and drink, we want to be in control and not worrying or feeling guilty about eating a cookie. Without having some knowledge in the area of nutrition, we’re never quite sure if we’re doing things right or wrong, we’re slightly in the dark and reliant on other peoples thoughts and opinions. We can end up not being sure what we should and shouldn’t be eating, and often feel resentful to ourselves and our food.

I don’t want you to get a PhD in Nutrition. I want you to learn what you need to learn to be in control, I want you to have enough knowledge to battle the crap that’s pushed in front of you by big companies.

For that we need to learn the following three simple things and not in too much depth:

  1. What are proteins, fats and carbs?
  2. How do we balance our meals with proteins fats and carbs?
  3. From what foods do we get our micronutrients?

Again through our blog we’ll enlighten you on these points and it won’t be difficult. Get a grip on these three points and you’ll have enough knowledge about nutrition for the rest of your life. 

4. You don’t need a diet plan

This point is important. MOST of us do not require a diet plan, or not yet anyway. We ask for or seek diet plans because it’s a quick easy thing to do (from our own position) and it makes us feel like we’re achieving straight away. However, if my weekend consists of a two bottles of wine, a few beers and a take away or two…. I don’t need a diet plan. I need to think about my bad habits, accept the impact that they have on my body and think about how to go about changing them. This doesn’t necessarily have to be alcohol, it can be a packet of crips every day, a can of coke every day, chocolate bars, binge eating etc etc. If you know, you have a bad nutritional habit or habits and you’re asking for a meal plan, you’re missing the point. Changing bad habits/addictions is hard, probably the hardest thing about nutrition. Accepting and confronting bad habits is however,  a huge, positive step towards lifelong change. Ignoring our habits and asking for a meal plan, counting calories or going on a diet is more often than not, more damaging than good.

How we’re going to help

We’re going to provide ongoing content on the subject of nutrition with the focus of helping you get healthier, happier, fitter and stronger. This will be tailored to you from the problems we recognise and requests we receive. Learning can be hard. We can’t do the matrix stuff and plug the nutrition knowledge into your brain, and you really do need to learn about nutrition, so we’re going to do all we can to make that process as easy and enjoyable as possible. We’ll only provide you with solid, researched and backed content totally geared towards your health and performance.

Self Doubt – “I’m not fit enough for CrossFit”

Written by Mike Jones

I’m not fit enough to do CrossFit…. It’s the most common barrier that stops people from making one of the best health decisions of their lives. A common but ugly trait amongst us humans is to listen to the voice of self doubt. This voice tries to keep us positioned in the center of our comfort zone and will find any logical reason to stop us from doing new things that might take us outside of that zone. I know how real that voice is, I have one too, so in this post we’ll do our best to remove it’s major excuses.

Self Doubt – “I’m not fit enough to do CrossFit, I’ll get fitter first”

You don’t need to be fit to do CrossFit. You need to want to get fit. CrossFit is not a sport. If you want to play a sport there are certain fitness requirements that would help you do that. If you want to play a game of football then being able to run around for 90 minutes is going to help you significantly, if you can’t run around for 90 minutes then there is some truth in the statement ‘I’m not fit enough for football’.  CrossFit isn’t a sport, CrossFit is a style of training that is designed to help individuals improve their health and fitness, continually, for the rest of their lives. You don’t even need to be fit enough to ‘do the workouts’ we’ll cover that in the next section. Our goal isn’t to make you a fitness monster. Our goal is to help you get more from your life by being healthier, happier, fitter and stronger. We tie our goals in with your individual goals. Through our program we help individuals:

  • Move properly resulting in:
    • Increased joint health
    • Decreased/eliminated back/joint pain
    • Increased performance
  • Develop aerobic capacity (commonly known as fitness) resulting in:
    • Decreased body fat 
    • Improved heart and lung health
    • Increased performance
  • Develop strength resulting in:
    • Decreased body fat 
    • Increased joint and bone health
    • Increased independence 

(if we listed all of the benefits of our training people would’t believe us)

 
Self Doubt – “The workouts look hard, I’ll never be able to do them, I’ll just die or look stupid”

Metta Box Crabby

I’d like to start covering this point by highlighting that our classes aren’t like other classes, you’re not going to walk in, put your water bottle down then get into it. Our classes are personal, they are limited to 12 people, you’ll go through a full whiteboard briefing about the workout before you’ve even started a warm up and the coaches will discuss with you how you are going to tackle it. You’ll then get taught, or improve every single movement that’s in that workout.  If you can’t do a pull-up, you won’t be the only one in the gym, if you struggle to run 400 meters, you won’t be the only one in the gym, if you can’t do a full squat, you won’t be the only one in the gym.

Before the workout begins, our coaches will go through, in detail, how you should do the workout, that’s you as an individual. We ensure that you get the right ‘stimulus’ from the workout and for that it often needs to be adapted. A good example of a tough workout could be:

  • ‘1 Mile run – 2km Row – 1 Mile run’

This workout is designed to be challenging, but to be finished in under 30 minutes. Most wouldn’t be able to complete it in 30 minutes so we change it for them to make it more appropriate. We often write three versions of the same workout on the board to cater to the wide variety of fitness levels of our clients. A few other options could be:

  1. 400m Run – 1k Row – 400m run
  2. 20 minutes – Row as far as possible
  3. 3km Row

The point is, we want you to push yourself for 20-30 minutes (if your fitness allows) we don’t want you to try and do something that is too hard, this just doesn’t happen in our gym. As your fitness and confidence increases, our coaches will adapt your workouts to suit.

 

Self Doubt – “I’ve not enjoyed other fitness, I won’t enjoy CrossFit”

I can’t guarantee you’re going to enjoy training with us or at any other CrossFit gym, nobody can. CrossFit gyms don’t work like normal gyms, we don’t make our money from people with memberships that don’t turn up, we don’t have contracts, if our members aren’t enjoying their training then they leave. Therefore, it’s essential to us that you enjoy your training. We do all that we can to make sure you do, that makes us unlike any other fitness training you’ve done before:

  • Coached –  You’re guided through every aspect of every session
  • World Class Programming – you don’t have to think about what you’re doing or if it’s right – it is
  • Results – Train three times a week – Eat well – You’ll be the fittest you’ve ever been 
  • Constantly varied – You never stop learning, You never stop getting fitter
  • Community – You make friends, You look forward to training, They push you, They support you
  • Atmosphere – Pushing yourself hard is much easier with other people and loud good music (not when Lisa is coaching)

Moving Forwards

You don’t need to get fitter to start CrossFit, you need to stop letting self doubt hold you back.  Imagine all the amazing things you might have missed out on because of self doubt. If you started training tomorrow, imagine your health and fitness levels in 6 months. Most people we get through the door stay for years, getting through the door is the biggest step. 

If you’d like to have a chat with us you can message us through Facebook, call us through the contact details on our website here or book a no sweat intro in 2 clicks through our website here. If you have a friend that trains with us you can come along to free class Friday on the first Friday of every month. Follow our Instagram and Facebook to keep up to date with all the goings on.
