Diet and Nutriton for Health and Performance

You are what you eat. Period. Hence, the food you eat affects everything - your mind, body and performance. Why spend time and money getting in shape if you continue to feed yourself in ways that don’t support your health and vitality?

Our diet and nutrition program utilizes 3 key strategies for your success: 1. Simplicity. Our system is easy to understand and follow and is adaptable for your meals at home, out at restaurants, or while traveling. 2. Consistency. Eating

well once-in-a-while or even one meal per day just doesn’t do it. Being consistent with meal times, food quality, and quantities are foundational to your success. 3. Accountability – Are you doing what you said you would? With nothing to be accountable for, chances for failure increase dramatically.

Physical Re-Conditioning

This is specifically for clients who are experiencing chronic pain, have had an injury that holds them back, and/or are physically limited in their ability to work, walk, relax, sleep, exercise and live their life. It includes an extensive physical assessment (biomechanics, posture, gait, movement, strength, and coordination) and movement analysis followed by specific exercise programming that will bring you back to peak performance.

Clients that begin here can expect improvements in movement, flexibility, stability, reduction or elimination of pain, improved energy and attitude, and confidence. Our process has three steps:

a. Postural & Biomechanical Assessment – to determine the specific areas of muscular imbalance and their related postural deviations.

b. Corrective Flexibility and Movement – to restore the range of motion of joints and tissues and gain structural stability through the core and torso.

c. Corrective Exercise – to rebuild the strength of in-active, weak muscle tissue and to restore balance in the neuromuscular system.

Michael came on board with CrossFit LA in 2006 and, finding something here that he had never found in his workouts and training before, quickly rose to the top of our leader boards. His passion for life and sport has led him in many directions - from classical music as a teenager, to the Marine Corps, whitewater kayaking, and professional adventure racing.


CrossFit LA | CrossFit Los Angeles - WhatisCrossFit

Making an adjustment in a workout for a beginner means reducing the total reps or rounds, reducing the distance, eliminating the clock, reducing the weight, and/or reducing the complexity of a movement. I reduced my training time each week by more than 60%, I was doing more functional strength training than ever, and adding in new gymnastic and weightlifting movements.


CrossFit LA | CrossFit Los Angeles - HowWeAreDifferent

We choose exercises that make large demands on your nervous and muscular systems and require many muscle groups to work together synergistically. You may not know it, but they NEVER do leg extensions, leg curls, leg press, or adduction/abduction exercises. Weight machines were designed by engineers to simulate the isolated movement of one muscle in your body. In real life, your body rarely uses one muscle at a time independently of all others.
