Not sure how Crossfit can talk about how refined carbs are the devil when the greatest crossfitter ever openly talks about adding Hershey’s Syrup to protein shakes for added carbs.

Do you think Chocolate syrup is the secret to his success and CrossFit is dispensing bad advice? Or that he is not a true CrossFitter?

I suppose if I was forced to choose between those two without the benefit of nuance, the latter is closest to what I'm suggesting.

Covid 19 is only strengthening the necessity to take CrossFit seriously. Health is not a commodity, it is a series of actions that need to become habits. It all starts with recognizing that Health is a priority and then we need to go to the source and find the truth. Thanks CrossFit to help our community educate it self.


Il est important de comprendre que le Covid 19 ne fait que renforcer la nécessité de partager le message de CrossFIt. La santé n'est pas achetable, c'est une séries d'actions qui doivent devenir des habitudes. Premièrement faisant de notre santé notre priorité et puis il faut par la suite trouver la vérité sur la santé. Merci à CrossFit de nous aider à nous éduquer.

What a great message for our Community!


This is a tough subject to share among the people, especially here in Italy that has been bitten so hard by Covid 19, but at the same time the data are so evident that there's no way to do not agree whit this.


94% of the patients have a systemic inflammation due to preexisting conditions, like chronic illnesses. Those conditions are largely driven by lack of movement and by sugar and refined carbohydrates excessive consumption.


This means that if you want to stay away from this "High Risk Club" you need to do CrossFit, because the practical application of the "cure" is happening already thanks to all the CrossFit Affiliates around the world!


Thanks for this!!

Che grande messaggio per la nostra comunità!


Questo è un argomento difficile da condividere tra le persone, specialmente qui in Italia che è stata colpita così duramente dal Covid 19, ma allo stesso tempo i dati sono così evidenti che non c'è modo di non essere d'accordo.


Il 94% dei pazienti ha un'infiammazione sistemica dovuta a condizioni preesistenti, come le malattie croniche. Tali condizioni sono largamente determinate dalla mancanza di movimento e dall'eccessivo consumo di zucchero e carboidrati raffinati.


Ciò significa che se vuoi stare lontano da questo "High Risk Club" devi fare CrossFit, perché l'applicazione pratica della "cura" sta già avvenendo grazie a tutti gli affiliati CrossFit in tutto il mondo!


Grazie!!

I'v been away from Crossfit for a few years, and I am very touched to see the different emphasis that I see on the site coming back. I appreciate videos like this: the diversity of people shown, and the focus on lifelong well-being. Not that Crossfit wasn't about that before--I just see that message becoming central.

I've been telling my patient this forever. Sad to say but most are hoping for a vaccine. Frustrating at times but I don't give up.

If you have chronic disease, waiting for the vaccine is playing Russian roulette. And no vaccine will reverse what made people vulnerable in the first place: metabolic syndrome.

I totally agree that the method can solve this problem. However, the cost can be prohibitive! Belonging to a CrossFit gym costs more than many people can afford when they can barely afford food/shelter/clothing clothing. And a lot of the time, the people with less money in our society eat the worst because of food deserts/culture/lack of nutrition education. Maybe something like this can be subsidized by health insurance? I’m sure it would save billions in the long run.

Agree about the food issue, however crossfit.com is free and provides EVERYTHING a person needs. Nutrition-the food oasis is an issue; it provides food education, anatomy, training and many other resources.

Like Mike said, they really do provide an offensive amount of stuff for free. Chris Meldrum and others have been doing this forever on their own without belonging to a gym (though, Mel will always be an honorary Champions Club kid!). But I do agree with you. The people who need it most as a whole have a difficult time getting in. I'm confident that will change over time though.

Is this a video I can't embed or am I missing where the link usually is?


Great video, goes without saying.
