At pH Nutrition we have 5 pillars of nutrition that we use. These are the principles that govern how we set up nutrition plans and what we educate people to focus on.

Follow these principles to maximise your CrossFit performance.

HUMAN NUTRITION BEFORE SPORTS NUTRITION

Focusing on FOOD FIRST is a non negotiable. Human nutrition is ensuring that most of your meals are from whole food sources, minimally processed and don't come in a shiny tub or wrapper. 


FOOD FIRST 

Jumping in a worrying about which supplements to take isnt going to help you achieve your goal. We underestimate the impact that eating enough vegetables has on health and performance. The intensity of CrossFit means that your body requires more support than the average joe. You need to be supplying it with a variety of nutrients. Always focus on real food first

WORLD CLASS BASICS 

Do the basics consistently. The simple stuff will have a larger effect on how you progress with the program than focusing on the 1%. If it seems too simple - that is good. 


FOCUS ON PROGRESS NOT PERFECTION 

You wouldn’t expect to jump straight into the main class and do 30 unbroken muscle ups. You have to develop the base skills and go through the PROCESS. The same goes with nutrition. Focus on the process of improving certain aspects and start to form good habits.


FIND WHAT WORKS FOR YOU 

Don’t follow someone's else's plan - evolve your own. Being aware of what foods, when you eat and how you feel will allow you to build a sustainable nutrition plan
