With almost one month of the new year down and 11 to go, now is a good time to look at the goals you’ve set for 2017. If your new year’s resolution is to be healthier, exercise and nutrition are two key aspects you should keep in mind.
As a CrossFit family, we know how valuable exercise is. Exercise keeps our muscles, bones, and even organs like our heart strong and in working order. If you’re already struggling to stick with your fitness routine this year, try working out with a friend. Grab someone you know will motivate you and put yourself in an environment that will help you want to exercise. Having accountability will only set you up for success.
Exercise goes hand-in-hand with the second aspect of a healthy lifestyle: nutrition. Without healthy eating habits, the time we spend at the gym and exercising is a waste. Our body needs good fuel to run on, just like a sports car needs good gas. (Who would put cheap gas in their Audi and expect it to run smoothly?) If you want your body to perform well at the gym, you have to put good fuel in it.
When it comes to eating healthy, sometimes the biggest frustration is the planning that’s involved. Lack of time or energy can discourage you from a nutritious lifestyle. That’s why we’ve partnered with Mealfit. Every week, you will get an in-depth Paleo or Whole30 meal plan, complete with instructions and shopping lists for $10.00 a month.
