June 19th – August 17th
Please sign in prior to class!
Summertime is here, lots of fun in the sun, but be sure not to miss out on your CrossFit classes! Staying active is an important component of a healthy lifestyle and so for those that may want to spend the evenings out on the water with their families, you are invited to join us on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9:00 am throughout the summer. We’ve been missing seeing some familiar faces lately, and this class will be a perfect opportunity for you to get back into the swing of things! We’ll have to take advantage of the nice weather and waterways we have around Tri-Cities and take some workouts down to the water….and just maybe we’ll head out on some outrigger canoes again this summer (hint, hint)!
When the weather gets hot, we sometimes have the tendency to lose our appetites. Remember to eat cool this summer. The food choices we make can have a cool down effect on our overheated bodies. Raw foods, cold foods, and cold drinks have a more cooling effect than cooked foods. This includes lettuces, cucumbers, radishes, tomatoes, celery, summer squash, broccoli and other leafy vegetables. Herbs and spices that are cooling include peppermint and lemon-balm. Eating fruits and vegetables which are in season will give you the most benefit in terms of nutritional value this summer. Berries and naturally dark greens are nutritional power houses. These foods have the highest concentration of vitamins and minerals of all foods. Leafy greens such as lettuce, broccoli and zucchini are great sources of minerals and vitamins like potassium, iron and calcium as well as being packed with vitamins K, A and E. A good place to start is by taking a trip to our local farmers market (we have great ones in the Tri-Cities!), this will give you a clear indication of what foods are in season now. Remember, you’ve got to eat to have the energy to workout and get strong!
