Immune Boosters & Busters

There are things you can do to boost your immune system to help you prevent and fight off infection. But most importantly, to live a full and healthy life.

Immune Busters: 

  • Not enough sleep 
  • Eating too much sugar / high carbohydrate diet 
  • Not exercising 
  • Stress 
  • Not getting outdoors 

Can you relate to any of these on the Immune Buster list? If so, you’re not alone. So now that we know what busts the immune system, let’s look at what boosts it.

Boosters: 

  • Getting at least 7 hours of sleep a night 
  • Eating a balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals. 
  • Exercising 30 minutes a day
  • Meditating, relaxing, releasing stress 
  • Getting outdoors in the sun 

How many do you do get right on this above list? Which are you going to try to work harder on?

And it’s not as hard as it might seem to knock out all 5 in a day. Here’s how:

Get into a positivity, immune boosting loop: 

Fuel your body with a good diet = so you have the energy to exercise = exercise outdoors (in the sun) so you can release stress and also sleep better = sleep helps your body recover and prepare you for the next day to start it all over again.

5 years ago

When we opened the gym 5 years ago, our excitement was soon followed with a panic stricken “did we make a mistake?”

Our gym had been opened for three weeks and we were way behind our projected goals for the first month. We sat on the floor, looked at each other and wondered if we made a mistake.

Faith is spelled r-i-s-k.

Taking a risk is what starts you on the journey to creating something great. You see what you want to accomplish, you have faith in the outcome, and you take a risk to go after it.

In that panic filled moment on the gym floor, a woman walked through the door and bought a premium personal training package. The next day a friend wanted to gift us a check to help us out in our first month of business. We made our financial goals that month! Our faith increased and it inspired us to keep working hard. This picture is where we are today!

What great thing do you want to accomplish? You will never know what you’re capable of until you take a risk! Have faith it will work out even when things get really hard. Great things don’t come from comfort zones. Go for it! You can do it!

About our CrossFit program

There are many positive aspects to our CrossFit program but a big one we are known for is periodization. There is a period for load and a period for recovery. During a training cycle, we use progressive load principles to slowly and steadily stimulate the body to adaptation along with active recovery to avoid overtraining, injury and burnout. Simply put, each period gets incrementally challenging and it’s followed up with recovery. Challenge the body and rest the body, and repeat the process.

Periodization is the opposite of random.

For example, you wouldn’t train for a running event, of any distance, by running as hard as you can every day. You would quickly become overtrained, injured and burnt out. Hard workouts are necessary, but so too is recovery.

By designing a CrossFit program that includes recovery, we call it training smarter, not harder.
