3:00 Nick Massie is a professional chef who’s making it his mission to educate CrossFitters on the finer points of cooking so they can dial in their nutrition without giving up delicious food. Massie explained his most recent project: creating a website so CrossFitters can learn to cook and feel more comfortable in the kitchen. He described different features the website will possess and outlined some challenges he wants to conduct online. Massie explained how the recent influence of Gary Taubes shaped his philosophies.

29:40 Jason Ackerman owns CrossFit Clifton Park and Albany CrossFit. He’s looking to hire a new coach, so he devised an innovative process to choose the perfect candidate. Borrowing an idea from reality programming, he created a TV-style competition that will include challenges and immunities, along with input from the community. In case you don’t have the ability to recreate Survivor, Ackerman gave advice on choosing a good coach and how to become a better coach. Finally, he talked about a Garage Games Competition in the near future.
