Why Nutrition?

CrossFit Forest has teamed up with Whole9, specialists in the field of nutrition and a respected authority in the health and fitness community, to provide our members with a comprehensive nutritional program designed to make you the healthiest you’ve ever been. Why are we focusing so much on what you eat? Because we believe nutrition is the foundation of any good fitness program, and the gateway to optimal health.

Eat Real Food.

Our belief is that a good nutritional program should be centered around eating real food. We know that fad diets, crash diets, miracle pills and “meal replacements” are not part of a balanced, sustainable path towards improved health and fitness. Instead, we encourage you to eat high quality meat, seafood and eggs, plenty of fresh vegetables and fruits, and healthy sources of dietary fats – it’s that simple.

Benefits of eating real food include:

  • a healthy metabolism
  • improved digestion
  • stronger immune system
  • calm systemic inflammation

The Whole9 Nutrition Program

We encourage you to implement good nutritional habits from your very first day with us. Once you enroll, we will provide you with a comprehensive printed handbook to walk you through Whole9’s nutrition program, free of charge. Your handbook includes all the tools you’ll need to succeed, including:

• An overview, “Nutrition in 60 Seconds”

• A detailed Shopping Guide, including helpful hints for making high quality food choices

• The Whole9 meal planning template, outlining portion sizes, meal frequency and pre- and post-workout nutrition

• Delicious, Whole30-approved recipes that follow our meal planning template, and a 7-day meal plan

• A number of helpful resources – additional recipe sites, references, books and movies

• The Whole30, Whole9’s original program designed to “change your life in 30 days”

• The Whole30 FAQ, to help guide you through your 30 day program
