Have you signed up for Coach Brittany’s Nutrition Challenge yet? Still waiting for that final push? Check out what past participants have said!
“It gave me added confidence and motivation to decline alcohol, which I later found out irritated a medical condition I had been diagnosed with. I never felt better and have now given up drinking for a healthier lifestyle.”
“I learned how to eat well balanced meals that fueled my body and allowed it to burn fat. I’ve always thought that I ate healthy, but when I started the nutrition challenge, I realized that I wasn’t eating enough carbs and I wasn’t eating enough, period. Letting go of my “paleo” mentality and eating more complex carbs (such as oatmeal, rice, or beans) was the hardest part, but once I decided to trust the process and upped my carb and calorie intake, my body fat just started melting away. The nutritional challenge not only teaches you how to find success, but gives you a template on how to continue when you’re done”
“I have participated in 3 of Brittany’s nutrition challenges. Each time I sign up, I add a new good habit or eliminate/severely curb a bad habit. The group really helps to hold you accountable and makes it a lot of fun. I also began to track and measure my food and this was a big eye opener to how much I should be eating.”
“Four months post-challenge I am still following the healthy habits that I learned during the challenge. It gave me a good jumpstart to cut out ‘bad foods’ I previously craved. I also got a much better idea about portion sizes. Tracking and measuring my food has totally changes how I eat, feel, look and perform at the gym. I never feel hungry. And it is totally sustainable!”
Have you signed up for the New Year Nutrition Challenge?!?! No?!?! What is holding you back? Maybe the fact that you may not know me and putting trust in a stranger can be hard, so let me take a moment to introduce myself. I am a girlfriend to an amazing man (with the best accent) and we have a badass dog weighing in at 5.5lbs. I am currently a mother to be, a CrossFitter, and corporate employee gone rogue pursuing my passion of fitness and nutrition.
I was not born a naturally gifted athlete nor did I play competitive sports. I was not blessed with the genetic make up of a six pack and struggled with body image. I remember constantly dieting and never being happy. Post college graduation I found myself severely overweight, out of shape and unhappy. CrossFit was the first step in my transformation, then in 2015 I was introduced to an online nutrition program that taught me balance. I learned how to fuel my body for performance and stopped a negative cycle of under and over eating. But above all, I learned consistency is the key to success.
A few years back, I craved more knowledge and signed up for the Precision Nutrition Certification Course. I then started a nutrition program at CrossFit Columbia COVE where I have worked with numerous CrossFitters of all levels with different goals. I have organized 3 challenges with over 100 participants. In one challenge alone we saw OVER 100lbs of fat LOST and decreased body fat by 32%. Muscle was gained and PRs were crushed!
I now want to share my knowledge with each of you. It is my goal to work as a team to find what you can be consistent with. Take the first step in enhancing your health and sign up for the nutrition challenge or reach out and we can schedule time for a 1:1 nutrition session!!!
Beginning NEXT THURSDAY, January 18th, we will be launching Bring A Friend Thursday. This will happen a couple times a month (dates TBA); you will be able to bring a friend with you to WOD. The workout will be designed for people of all abilities – more of a body weight, DRIVE style workout. There will be a link on the blog to share with your friends so they can sign up ahead of time. Now is your chance to bring in that friend who was always too hesitant, slightly nervous, or just thought you were crazy for loving the gym so much. Start spreading the word!
