The grocery store has so many choices often stamped with a matrix of certifications carrying with it the justification for a higher price. It can be time consuming and burdensome to figure out what to buy from your local grocery store if you don't have a framework that you use to select products. Below I compiled my priorities when purchasing food.

Hey guys we have some changes coming your way! We have sent out questions and we are responding to the answers in the best way possible. Your feedback is always welcomed and greatly appreciated, so here are some new things going down at CrossFit Tustin!
#1) Your Diet Never Changed - You took the very important step and started training. You pushed past the stage of feeling like a fish out of water and now you actually enjoy it (for the most part). Your hard work in the gym however isn't translating into the body changes you thought would immediately follow. Wait for it... Your diet still stinks. You eat sugar, wheat, processed foods and drink alcohol just like you did before you trained. Maybe you throw some kale in to feel good about it but your diet generally remains the same. You are now building muscle while your diet supports the less desirable physical traits. The simple fix is an honest assessment and the willingness to adjust your diet. Get a friend or coach to keep you accountable.

I spend a lot of time in the gym and I love the stories I get to hear from my fellow CrossFitters. These are radical stories about changed lives that are significant on every level. These are stories about weight loss, going off medication, smashing old pre-conceived notions of what's physically possible, and more. Very significant things happen here in the gym, things that don't just stay in the gym but have the ability to improve the kind of people we are outside of the gym as well. Often what we don't realize is that we are all in the process of becoming certain kinds of people. That can be a good thing or a bad thing :)

It is time to take a close look at what you are putting into your body as fuel! We train hard in the gym but often we don't help our body outside of the gym by taking care with the food we eat. The deal is this... Our health, our fitness, and our well being require a lifestyle that supports those ends. On top of healthy rhythms of life, we need to take a close look at what we are putting in our body on a daily basis.

So, that was fun, I think...

Now that 13.1 is in the books, we have to look forward to 13.2 and beyond, but how do we put 13.1 behind us if we STILL FEEL 13.1?! All of us have our own recovery plans that we follow, but with the Open upon us, recovering is the key to performance. I wanted to talk about a few key elements that can help in the recovery process and hopefully get us better prepared for future WODs.

Undergound GroupI am writing this on behalf of Tim, myself and the CrossFit Tustin Team. Some big changes are happening shortly and we wanted to take a moment to bring everyone up to speed. Within the next several weeks we will be moving gym locations from our current space on Edinger Ave to a new space off of Walnut and Bentley less than a mile away. The gym is 12,500 square feet and we will have a 3,000 square feet Physical Therapy Clinic called West Coast Rehabilitation Specialists within the gym as well. This is a huge move and we are super excited to bring the community into this process. Before we continue, let's look back for a moment.

The following article is from the Oakland County Crossfit site. I'd prefer to write my own material, but this article is great as it is and very needed. Why tamper with what is already great.

As a gym owner, I routinely encounter resistance from women when they find out that they will be lifting weights. They immediately state that they have the kind of body type that "bulks" up real easily. Almost every woman I know believe she possess the special genetic proclivity for bulking.
