Nutrition is a key part of CrossFit, but many trainers shy away from discussing eating habits. Chip Johnston thinks that’s a huge mistake.
We often say in CrossFit, “Nutrition is the foundation.”
Everyone—even people who don’t do CrossFit—has experienced a situation where nutrition positively or negatively affected his or her physical or psychological performance.
We ask our athletes a host of questions when they enter our affiliates. Do you have any injuries? What is your previous athletic or fitness experience? What are your perceived strengths and weaknesses? Why did you join a CrossFit affiliate? What are your goals?
It only makes sense that we would ask some questions about our athletes’ eating habits.
