June is Great Outdoors Month!
June was declared Great Outdoors Month in 2004. The proclamation of Great Outdoors Month helped the President highlight a variety of initiatives, events and themes he embraces – more active lifestyles to combat obesity, volunteerism to strengthen our communities and our shared legacy of parks and forests, protection of our environment and enjoyment of the splendor of the great outdoors.
The goal of Great Outdoors Month is to highlight the benefits of active time outdoors to people, to families, to communities and to the nation. Recreation is a valuable means for education and volunteerism is a great gift – to the nation and to volunteers themselves. And, outdoor recreation is a fun, healthy use of leisure time.
So we say, get up off your butt, get outside and get physical! Now that the weather’s great, at least some of every WOD we do is now outside! Come join us.
“Whenever I read the WOD, I feel intimidated. But Jordan always ensures me that I can do it. And then I do pull off the workout and feel so strong! I also love that the workouts are ALWAYS different. I never get bored with CrossFit! I also like that with CrossFit, I am more easily able to track my progress. I’m excited to see how strong I can get!”Â -L.Warren, Royal Oak.

Fitness Tip of the Month
Every month, I share with you at least one fitness tip to make working out more effective and more enjoyable for you. This month, I want to focus on the importance of being able to do a pull up the right way.
The key to doing pull ups is to pull with your back. Here is a video of the perfect pull up.
Nutrition Tip of the Month
CrossFit reports that excessive consumption of high-glycemic carbohydrates is the primary culprit in nutritionally caused health problems. High glycemic carbohydrates are those that raise blood sugar too rapidly.Â High-glycemic carbohydrates include rice, bread, candy, potato, sweets, sodas, and most processed carbohydrates. Processing can include bleaching, baking, grinding, and refining. Processing of carbohydrates greatly increases their glycemic index, a measure of their propensity to elevate blood sugar.
So if you want to get the most out of your workout – i.e. get the most toned body you can – avoid high glycemic carbohydrates! If you find yourself eating too many of these foods, work one out of your diet at a time.Â We want you to be a success, so improve your health with baby steps so you don’t fail!
