Vendors that provide anything from recovery, injury prevention, and body fat percentage/testing will be attending. Throughout the afternoon, different specialists will offer seminars on health topics.

Macros is a lifestyle in which athletes track the weight and volume of their foods in order to reach a calculated amount of calories per day with the goal of reaching optimal performance and aesthetics. During this session, we will discuss why tracking macros works, what each macronutrient is/what it does for the body, and briefly discuss how to calculate and begin to track your own macros.

The paleo lifestyle, often referred to as the caveman diet, it widely known in the Crossfit world. Paleo is an elimination lifestyle where athletes focus on cutting certain food groups out of their daily eating in order to look, feel, and preform better. During this session, we will discuss what the Paleo research shows, what to eat/what not to eat, and how to be successful when starting Paleo.

Keto Diet/Intermittent Fasting:
The Keto diet is a process where athletes eliminate most carbohydrates from their diet, forcing the body to burn fat for energy resulting in weight loss and increased energy. Intermittent fasting is an eating pattern where you cycle between periods of eating and periods of fasting which can lead to weight loss. During this session, we will explore the ins and outs of both the keto diet and intermittent fasting and how to get started and be successful with both.
