Amoeba CrossFit has been open since April 2021. Since then, we've focused exclusively on delivering the best CrossFit experience we can. We're a small, nimble team, and didn't want to spread ourselves too thin in the first year as we got this gym and community up and running.
Now that things are more or less rolling along, it's time to broaden the services and products we can offer you. The first new service we'll offer is nutrition coaching. And with that, we're excited to offer nutrition coaching to Amoeba CrossFit.
Nutrition is the foundation of fitness. Food is literally the fuel for life and plays a huge key role in your progress inside and outside the gym. Nutrition can be very confusing these days thanks to social media providing endless opinions, misinformation, and unrealistic expectations.
Before we get into it, you need to ask yourself what your ultimate goal is in regards to fitness.
- Do you want to enhance your training?
- Do you want to lose body fat and gain lean muscle mass?
- Do you want to optimize your overall health?
- Do you want to better understand food and how to eat?
A nutrition coach can help with all of the above in regards to nutrition and fitness. It can be upsetting for people who have tried and failed multiple "diets" over the years. With nutrition coaching, we want to help you enjoy your food, learn how to properly fuel your body, and love the body that works so hard for you.
Amoeba Nutrition is designed to make you confident and knowledgeable in making nutritional decisions for yourself so that one day you won't need a nutrition coach.
In the beginning, you may find it challenging and uncomfortable. That's okay! Changes don't happen overnight, in a week, or maybe not even in a month. This isn't a weight loss challenge or traditional weight loss program. This is a change in your lifestyle that will set you up for success for the rest of your life. Lifestyle changes and our bodies don't have quick-fix switches.
With Amoeba Nutrition, you get 1-on-1 nutrition coaching with a certified coach. You'll also get a personalized nutrition program that includes the following:
- Customized macronutrients that are tailored for your unique goals
- Weekly check-ins with a nutrition coach
- Weekly assessment of health parameters
- Monthly meetings to assess both qualitative and quantitive progress
- Accountability every step of the way with text message access to your coach
- Insight on hormonal optimization in regards to diet, exercise, and supplements
