One of the unique benefits about being a part of CrossFit For Glory is that we aim to educate you all on a variety of topics related to health and fitness – not just lifting weights and burpees! As your head coach, I feel that from time to time it is important for me to peel back the curtain a bit to let you guys in on some of the inner workings that make this ship stay afloat. With that being said, there are a couple of resources that I would like to recommend to you all in hopes that they will help further your journey towards whatever health and fitness goals you may have. The following is certainly not an exhaustive list (not even close!) of what I utilize nearly daily, but rather a great starting point for both the newbie and veteran CrossFitter alike:
Books –
Practical Paleo” by Diane Sanfilippo (this book is by FAR the best nutrition resource, in print form, that I have ever come across. Diane does a fabulous job of explaining the how’s and why’s of eating Paleo in very easy-to-understand terms. She advocates a nutrition lifestyle that is not only practical, but also sustainable – two points that are staples in the nutrition seminars that I give! I have found almost every answer to the most common questions about Paleo within the pages of this book. As a bonus, the cooking section is not full of the typical ‘fancy’ meals you find in other cookbooks…her meals don’t call for a bunch of crazy ingredients that you have to go to Bangladesh for, most things can be had at Publix!)
Becoming a Supple Leopard” by Dr. Kelly Starrett (KStar is the godfather of the mobility movement. This book starts everyone from square one and shows everyone how to move correctly in order to prevent/heal injury and maximize your athletic potential. A tad bit on the technical side, but still quite easy to understand. Many of our “MWOD” torture pieces come from him!)
