Dr. Jimenez presents a glimpse of Crossfit as is spans across America.
ABOUT two decades ago in California, CrossFit was registered as a trademark by the founder Greg Glassman.
According to nerdfitness.com, CrossFit is a training philosophy that coaches people of all shapes and sizes to improve their physical wellbeing and cardiovascular fitness in a hard-core yet accepting and encouraging environment.
CrossFit workouts change to contain variety to keep its members on its toes. The routine consists of functional movements that aim to increase individual work capacity and is applicable to other sports activities.
More than 324,307 people participated from 175 countries last year. The open game has five workouts over five weeks, which is posted online for the participants to follow.
Every week for the five weeks of the open game, the workout of the day (WOD) is released on Youtube and the official CrossFit website.
CrossFit in Fiji
The Suva Boxing and Fitness gym introduced CrossFit in Fiji last year and entered the open games with only five members.
Napoleon Taumoepeau is the only qualified CrossFit coach in Fiji. He was named the fittest person in Fiji by CrossFit Forging Elite Fitness. CrossFit 679 is Fiji’s only CrossFit affiliate. This year there were 20 members in the CrossFit open game. March 26 was the last of the five workouts at the Suva Boxing and Fitness gym.
Determination was on the faces of the participants as they pushed to finish the final WOD of the open games at the Suva Boxing and Fitness gym.
The WOD includes a wide range of physical exercises such as thrusters, squats, pull-ups, sumo deadlift, high pulls and more. CrossFit 679 is a place that has no boundaries and it brings the best out of an individual.
The coach encourages the participants to work hard and never puts one down.
“It may seem intimidating but I have trained many people who have never done CrossFit. Nine out of 10 of them are intimidated but the truth is that CrossFit was designed for all levels of fitness. We, as coaches, are trained to teach someone with little or no knowledge about CrossFit and help them on their way through a new fitness journey,” said Taumoepeau, coach for CrossFit 679.
After every three months, the CrossFit 679 affiliate takes in members who are interested on a journey of learning about CrossFit and the fundamental movements of CrossFit. An introduction seminar is the first step to welcome the participants of CrossFit 679.
To bring the very best during your training for the CrossFit games, proper diet and plenty of water is key.
“When and what you eat plays a big role in how your training will go. We help our CrossFit members to the best of our knowledge to maximise their workouts and it usually starts with diet,” the coach shared.
For the 679 CrossFitter, the CrossFit 679 is a great place to endure the pain and doing so with friendly and motivating people.
“You die but in the best way then cannot wait to die again,” Krystelle Lavaki, one of the participants shared.
CrossFitters normally go on a Paleo diet or a zone diet.
According to Crossfit Impulse, the zone diet isn’t about eating “low-carb” or “high-protein” or anything like that. It’s a diet balanced in protein (lean, natural meats are preferred), carbs (mostly low glycemic-load fruits and vegetables) and fat (one of the most important macronutrients).
With the right balance of protein, carbohydrates and fats, you can control three major hormones generated by the human diet � insulin, glucagon and eicosanoids. The Paleo diet is the healthiest way you can eat because it is the only nutritional approach that works with your genetics to help you stay lean, strong and energetic.
