WHY:

Eat By Design:

  • works in harmony with our body’s genetic make-up and design. It is not a diet, but instead an approach to fulfilling the nutritional requirements of the body for optimal function.

  •  teaches people how to eat to create health, instead of eating to alleviate a symptom or to treat a disease.

  • is a sustainable, enjoyable and incredibly healthy approach to eating for life.

**All attendees will receive the Eat By Design Manual.**

COST: FREE!!

This seminar, hosted by Dr. Bryant Harris, will help you learn the principles of Eat By Design.  If you are interested in attending please email Dr. Bryant Harris at drharris@trucentered.com

 

 

Paleo Challenge 2014

PALEO CHALLENGE 2014

This year, our sister facility CrossFit BWI will be hosting a Paleo Challenge beginning on Monday, January 20th concluding on Friday, February 28th (coincedently right before the initial Crossfit Open Workout).  In order to participate in the challenge, there will be a $20 buy in which will go towards the 1st Prize Winners (one Male and one Female), in addition to a  party to celebrate with a Centurion in March! Any leftover proceeds will donated to a charity to be determined at a later date.  In preparation for this challenge, our very own Ryan Thompson, will be hosting a nutrition discussion on Saturday, January 18th at 10am followed by a Group Benchmark WOD at 11AM (to be retested at the end of the challenge to help determine how much progress is made).  Make sure to bring paper and pen for notes if needed/desired.  The discussion will be an excellent  is opportunity to gain clarification surrounding the guidelines of the challenge and/or any questions or concerns regarding adopting a paleo diet.  If you are unable to attend the nutrition discussion, or the 11AM Benchmark WOD, you will still be able to perform the benchmark WOD on that Saturday, January 18th during your regular class time, just ask any coach for additional details.

All the rules will be posted on the CrossFit BWI Blog/facebook, and we will also provide you with a suggested shopping list to guide you in the right direction.

 

Dinner With The Doc

Welcome to the New World of Healthcare

Did YOU know that in order for you to enjoy your greatest potential, your body has critical requirements for health?

While crisis and medical care is an absolutely crucial necessity in our world and saves countless lives every day, it does NOT create health.

Life By Design is based on the principle that:

  1. You are designed to be extra-ordinary! Your body is incredibly intelligent, and is constantly driving toward health by making adaptations in response to its environment.
  2. Your body has fundamental requirements it needs to function at it’s best.  Just like a plant has certain requirements for life such as water, sunlight, and oxygen; human beings have requirements too!  These include
    1. Nutrients/Fuel
    2. Rest
    3. Movement
    4. A Healthy Mind
    5. A clear nerve supply

Very few people actively provide their body with these critical requirements for LIFE, so is it any surprise we are so sick?

While drugs, surgery and medical care are vital in times of crisis, they are rendered useless and a waste of time if you do not provide your body with what it fundamentally needs for life.

COME JOIN DR. BRYANT ON TUESDAY, DEC. 10th @ The Greene Turtle in Annapolis (177 Jennifer Rd, Annapolis, MD 21401) from 7:30PM to 8:30PM TO FIND OUT HOW YOU CAN START LIVING A LIFE BY DESIGN.

Space is limited to 10 people.  Food will be provided. Register HERE!

Thanksgiving is rapidly approaching…and with Thanksgiving comes the gluttony of eating Turkey, Cranberry Sauce, String Bean Casserole, Macaroni and Cheese, Collard Greens….::screaching tires:: (WHAT?!?! Am I the only one who eats Collard Greens on Thanksgiving???  I digress), Candied Yams, Ham, Pumpkin Pies, and a plethora of other comfort foods.  Is it just me, or are you already feeling guilty for the amount of indulgence that is about to go down in a matter of weeks.  But wait, there is a way that you can feel guilt free about all this gluttony (Well not really, but we think we will)!  You can join your CrossFit Annapolis family and be thankful for the community that you help create and participate in the Thanksgiving Turkey Trot in Annapolis.   Please check out the link and sign up – IT’S FREE.  This will be the second year that we have participated in this event and let’s try to top our showing this year!  Once we figure out how many people are going to participate, we can probably put together a fun get together afterwards to jump off our Thanksgiving Holiday!  If you are interested in participating please leave a comment in the comments section.  Let’s show Annapolis what the CFA community is all about!  GOBBLE GOBBLE!!
