Get ready for "Friday Night Lights"!  Starting this month, the last Friday of every month will be an opportunity to get together and cheer each other on for a workout.  (similar to the open, minus the 14.5).  We see it as a great opportunity to showcase the hard work you guys have put in week in, week out.  There will just be one workout or event, and it'll be coordinated like the open.  The workouts could also be max effort tests.  EX:  weightlifting total (snatch & clean&jerk), crossfit total (deadlift, press, backsquat), etc.  It should be a great opportunity to get out of your comfort zone (a little) while encouraging others.

Mark the calendar if you're around.  APRIL 25 will be our first "Friday Night Lights" kickoff.  Friends, food, family, drinks, and food :) are welcome!  Come on out!  We'll have more details moving forward.

Check yourselves! To think you can meet your health/wellness goals without changing your diet is absolutely ludicrous.  Diet is 90% of it.  If you want your body to be a Lamborghini, you can't keep giving it unleaded gasoline.  It's NOT calories in, calories out.  It's quality in, quality out.

From CrossFit HQ:

What Should I Eat?
In plain language, base your diet on garden vegetables, especially greens, lean meats, nuts and seeds, little starch, and no sugar. That's about as simple as we can get. Many have observed that keeping your grocery cart to the perimeter of the grocery store while avoiding the aisles is a great way to protect your health. Food is perishable. The stuff with long shelf life is all suspect. If you follow these simple guidelines you will benefit from nearly all that can be achieved through nutrition.

What Foods Should I Avoid?
Excessive consumption of high-glycemic carbohydrates is the primary culprit in nutritionally caused health problems. High glycemic carbohydrates are those that raise blood sugar too rapidly. They include rice, bread, candy, potato, sweets, sodas, and most processed carbohydrates. Processing can include bleaching, baking, grinding, and refining. Processing of carbohydrates greatly increases their glycemic index, a measure of their propensity to elevate blood sugar.
