Clean Eating

Clean Eating

Crew Fitness endorses clean eating and moderation. Eating clean means we choose foods that benefit our bodies. Purifying our diet improves the heart, mind, and body. 

Replacing snacks like packaged cereal bars with a fruit and a handful of nuts can make a big difference in our overall nutrition. Choosing a dinner like a 5-ounce steak, half a sweet potato, and asparagus instead of a cheesy casserole or lasagna will bring benefits for the following 24 hours, and making similar choices day after day will change your life. 

Amy's favorite breakfast is 2 eggs (but only one yolk) and one serving of unsweetened oatmeal. "Sometimes I even mix the eggs into the oatmeal. Other times I add in a teaspoon of almond butter or some blueberries." 

Small changes can make a big impact on your overall health. A few small shifts in food choice can yield more changes, resulting in a pure diet that our bodies will thrive on. 

Begin by making one change to your daily nutrition. Replace a pre-packaged snack with a piece of fruit and a small handful of nuts. You'll be amazed at how good this one change will make you feel. 

       The claim: Rowing uses mostly upper body strength. The verdict: FALSE!    The truth is that rowing works 84% of all of the muscles in the body, and the power in a strong row is generated by the LEGS. We row using legs, then core, then arms. The momentum of the drive is generated by the legs and continued by the core, and then completed by the arms, in the catch.
