Sleep your way to better health - Upcoming Workshop
Join Coaches Joseph, Tom and Amy to talk about all things sleep!  We dive into some science (even though we said we wouldn't) - what sleep is, what happens when you don't sleep enough, and how to improve your sleep.  We share how we set up our sleep routine to make sure we feel better rested and our experiences when we haven't slept enough to make sure you don't feel like you're alone in any sporadic sleep routines. But mostly - how to make it better!  Want to learn more?  Join us on February 3 to talk more about sleep and how you can nail it in 2024.  CrossFit Bermondsey, 12.30-2pm  Free workshop  https://www.wodboard.com/locations/288/workshops/3868/c2c4b685   @amygormanhealthnutrition  @josephharrisoncoaching  @tomstevens59  --- We help people get Stronger, Healthier and Happier for life.

MyLife Monday: Add one small thing TODAY
You made it through the first week of the year - well done!  For many of you the return to routine feels amazing, for some of you, it may still be something to fight off - like a kidding fighting their parents at bedtime.  I can imagine many brains started turning to "I have to cut out carbs", "I have to do loads of exercise to make up for December", "I have to be super strict and remove all fun from my life" over the weekend as they started to sink into the reality of a new year and the pressure to set goals.  Public Service Announcement: You don't have to restrict and cut out all joy in your life to achieve your goals!  Today, Amy digs into approach goals and why focusing on positive additions is so much more helpful that substracting the things you love.  @amygormanhealthnutrition for more  --- We help people get Stronger, Healthier and Happier for life.

Happy New Year team!  With the new year often comes big reflections, goals and resolutions.  New Year's resolutions are great for getting us started but often they leave us feeling like we've bitten off more than we can chew and stop fairly quickly, or we set our sights too high and feel like we can't achieve them.  Join us this Saturday for a workshop with coaches Tom and Amy at CrossFit Bermondsey - 6 Jan, 12.30-2pm.  They will be breaking down some of the common errors in resolutions and diet fads, helping you to create a plan that really works for you this year.

How to get better at everything

How to get better at everything
World-Class Fitness in 100 Words: Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense! Regularly learn and play new sports --- Coaches Kieran, Rich and Amy come together for the first time to talk about the 100 words of fitness and the influence that nutrition (the base of the pyramid) can impact every area of your training.  We'd to do some Q&A sessions in the new year, so fire in your questions:  kieran@crossfitbermondsey.com  richard@crossfitcanningtown.com  amy@crossfitbermondsey.com  --- Quick links to read more about the topics we went through:  Theoretical Hierarchy of Development  World Class Fitness in 100 Words  --- We help people get Stronger, Healthier and Happier for life.

What are the signs that I'm under-fuelling?

What are the signs that I'm under-fuelling?
We spoke about creating a calorie deficit to reach a fat loss goal recently. This week Amy and Nelly talk about the impact of under-fuelling over a period of time - whether that be from not eating enough to support your lifestyle, or over-training in comparison to food consumption.  Over time, both have the potential to lead to both long and short-term health impacts.  We talk about what under-fuelling may look like, some of the signs that your body isn't getting enough nutrients, and the impact it could have on your health.  We also talk about strategies to steadily increase consumption, leading to better results and potentially breaking through plateaus.  Want to learn more?  amy@crossfitbermondsey.com // @amygormanhealthnutrition  nelly@crossfitbermondsey.com // @nellnutrition --- We help people get Stronger, Healthier and Happier for life.

How do we lose weight?

How do we lose weight?
Weight loss is one of the most commonly searched nutrition goal and the one we receive half of our enquiries for. All too often we'll hear "I've done a juice cleanse before", "I've cut carbs", "I've gone really low calories". Quickly followed by, "It worked for a little bit but then I put more weight back on", or "I felt terrible and couldn't keep it up for more than a week/month".  In this episode Amy and Rich talk about some of the short and long term factors that come into play when you go into a significant calorie deficit and how you can re-look at your approach.  We talk about what's going on in your body during a big deficit (500 calorie plus) and why it would be more effective to go for a smaller deficit. Largely, you're going to keep up the intensity in your training so you can see the changes you want to in your body, allowing you to keep hold on muscle - i.e. fat loss, not just weight loss. As well as reducing the impact of cravings and leading to binge eating every weekend and the process taking longer.  Listen in for more information!  --- We help people get Stronger, Healthier and Happier for life.
