We want to push people towards the wellness and fitness end as much as possible. Moving away from sickness is always the number one priority when working with clients. This is very much based on the "prevention is better than cure".
You see CrossFit and nutrition can be a double edge sword. Do both correctly you will be supercharged and head towards the fitness end of the continuum. Often people will do one OR the other.
We see members smashing themselves in class only to eat poor quality food or have a nutrition plan that doesn't support THEIR lifestyle.
When you get BOTH your nutrition and training correct for you...it becomes a stress free road to PB city!
Illness - wellness continuum
As you work your way through the membership site you will receive all the tools and education needed to maximise your nutrition. The most important thing is to actually use these! How many "free downloads" have you got and never actually used!!
These are designed to help you move into the proactive, wellness mindset, opposed to the symptom based treatment mindset.
Wellness is a process, never a static state. Most of us think of “wellness” in terms of “illness” and assume that the absence of illness indicates wellness. There are actually many degrees of wellness, just as there are many degrees of illness.
Can you see the middle part of the continuum? It says "comfort zone" and "false wellness"
One of the biggest elements of CrossFit is to take you out of your comfort zone, to make you adapt and progress. At pH Nutrition we want you to have structured nutrition that works for you.
Sporadic nutrition is rife in society, people following fad diets for short periods of time. You will never achieve high level wellness following this model of 4 week juice diets!
If you want to create a sustainable nutrition plan, that is easy to follow and that allows you to live your life then you are in the right place!
Moving from the centre to the left shows a progressively worsening state of health. Moving to the right of centre indicates increasing levels of health and wellbeing. The symptom/treatment based approach can bring you up to the neutral point, where the symptoms of disease and illness have been alleviated. That’s all it’s designed to do.
On the other hand, the Wellness approach, which can be used at any point on the continuum, helps you move toward higher levels of wellness. The wellness paradigm directs you beyond the neutral point and encourages you to move as far toward wellness as possible. If you are ill, then treatment is important, but don't stop at the neutral point.
We want to PREVENT going left along the continuum. Using nutrition we can achieve this
