You have many avenues to help you on your way to being fit. Being fit is not just a measure of how fast you did one WOD one month to how fast you can do it this month. Just as it is not your CrossFit Total, good and bad cholesterol, triglycerides, BMI, lean/fat tissue percentage, bone mass/density, flexibility or mental health. It is all of these things together! You can be super strong but have very bad cholesterol and blood pressure. You can be very fast and skinny but maybe your bone mass is not what it was because of nutrition. Unless you are training for something specific you should be training for something unspecific so you are ready for the unknown and unknowable.
So please take advantage of the tools around you. One of our athletes is a registered dietitian for the Korean Peninsula. She helped me out with some biometrics, my resting metabolic rate (RMR), and even designed a specific/personal macro calorie intake plan for me based off of my RMR. These are powerful tools you have at your disposal to help you be as healthy of a you as possible. Also, I know nutrition is a constant issue and many of us don’t really ‘get it’. Stay tuned for an upcoming nutrition class!
1 July I got my blood work done and embarrassingly tested higher than normal cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood pressure. So don’t say it can’t happen to you. Get in there and get educated on your bio markers and here is how:
Primary Primary Care Manager – Call your Medical Center and make an appointment for blood work
Secondary: Call 737-1570 and this will get you the Nutrition Care Department for 121 Brian Allgood Medical Facility
By the way. I changed my lifestyle and dropped 31 points on my higher than normal cholesterol in 3 months. 🙂
