REMINDER: we're hosting Coach Sarah's "Macros Management aka How to Paleo your Macros" nutritional talk on Tuesday evening at 7:00pm at Arena Ready.

Nearly everyone agrees that healthy eating is a key component of optimal health and performance, but reaching consensus on the definition of "healthy" is typically quite another matter. This talk is intended to help you make informed decisions about what and how much to eat, taking into consideration your unique goals, lifestyle, and preferences. Optimizing food quality and nutrient density is important, as is managing the quantity and ratio of macronutrients you consume. Ultimately, what and how much to eat is also very uniquely personal, based on lifestyle, preferences, and even genetics (but that's beyond the scope of this talk!) We hope you'll join us to learn more!

Sarah holds the CISSN and is a Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certified Coach. She is part way through a Masters degree in Nutrition and Human Performance, and was formerly a Head Trainer on the CrossFit HQ Seminar Staff (whose weekend seminars include an in-depth lecture on nutrition). In short, she has a wealth of formal knowledge on the topic of nutrition, and as a high level athlete in track & field, CrossFit, Olympic weightlifting, and GRID she's built a ton of experience in athletic performance nutrition through the constant refinement and improvement of her own regimen.  She's also counseled many other athletes and every day folks to help them find feasible nutrition strategies they can stick to in order to meet their various goals.  

This talk is FREE to Arena Ready members and all are welcome and encouraged to attend! We'll allow for Q&A time so that you can get some of your nutrition questions answered, and will also provide some light snacks and drinks for those in attendance (thanks to Territory!).  You're encouraged to bring in any regular snacks or food items you regularly consume that you'd like help accounting for in your diet (e.g. "hey, I have these almonds and a banana which I brought from my office and I eat all the time - how do I account for this when balancing my macros?").  

Please sign-in for the Nutrition Talk in Mindbody (just like you would for a class) so that we can plan refreshments and seating ahead of time.   We look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday at 7:00pm!
