FIRST THINGS FIRST
Before we go through the ins and outs of Team Soul Nutrition, our one-stop shop for all your individual nutritional needs, we have to say this: we love food, and we aren’t ashamed to admit it. It doesn’t scare or worry us; on the other hand, we look forward to all the positive ways it impacts our daily lives, from supercharging our workouts to keeping our minds in balance. However, it wasn’t always like this for some of us. From overeating, to starving ourselves, to trying fad diets and detoxes, we’ve done it all, and we’ve come to realize, above all things, that the way we VIEW food is what makes us successful in having a healthy relationship to it. Team Soul Nutrition is NOT about setting limits. Rather, we believe food is fuel and that it should taste good and be enjoyed. Period. Through Team Soul Nutrition, we’ve been able to provide our clients with a program that stresses the importance of seeing food through this lens, while at the same time catering to their specific needs and desires. Today, our clients include an array of people, from CrossFit Games athletes and champion weightlifters, to people that workout a couple of times a week or not at all. There is no pre-requisite to joining our nutrition program except that you’re interested in learning more about how a proactive relationship to food can exponentially yield positive results in your life.
ADDRESSING A COMMON MISCONCEPTION
Exercise alone will NOT keep someone healthy, fit and looking good all year round. This is damaging for countless reasons, but the most harmful is that it leads to overuse of muscles and ligaments without a proper, responsible focus on NUTRITION to support the body. This is a DISASTROUS combination, the effects of which lead to injury, fatigue and exhaustion. At Soul, we’ve seen clients with nagging pains and burnt out engines completely ignore the importance of wholesome foods, and we’ve been able to help these same people realize that a healthy relationship with what they eat is just as important, if not more important, than what they are physically able to accomplish on the gym floor. As a matter of fact, many of these clients realized that a productive relationship with food is actually what LED them to meet the athletic goals they once pursued within their limited tunnel vision of what fitness really entails. It’s our work with clients like these that finally led us to develop Team Soul Nutrition because we believe in meeting the needs of the whole person, and there’s no better way to do that than to capitalize on input to maximize output.
