  • Too Much Water?

     

    Too much of a good thing is NOT a good thing!  There are many health benefits to increasing your fluid intake, but did you know too much in too little time can be toxic?  The body loves homeostasis and keeps this incredibly intricate balancing act in check with surprising efficiency.  When it’s disrupted, however, it can spell disaster.

    Read up on the symptoms of water intoxication
    “…You might be hot, have a headache, and just feel crummy. Other early symptoms can include diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting.”
    “”…look at your pee,” McStay says. “If it’s dark, you’re probably dehydrated, and you should drink. But you wouldn’t want to be peeing, peeing, peeing, and it’s clear. Then you’re peeing out almost clear water and you have a problem.”

    Read up on how water intoxication works
    “At its most basic, water intoxication occurs when a person drinks so much water that the other nutrients in the body become diluted to the point that they can no longer do their jobs.”

    Read up on more facts here
    “As long as you are healthy and equipped with a thirst barometer unimpaired by old age or mind-altering drugs, follow Verbalis’s advice, “drink to your thirst. It’s the best indicator.”
    – Joseph Verbalis, chairman of medicine at Georgetown University Medical Center

    Key takeaways:
    Listen to your body’s cues:
    – drink to your thirst
    – watch your pee
    Use common sense
    Don’t do it because someone else “told you to,” do it because you want to!

    **Listen to your body and use common sense when choosing your water intake.  A gallon may or may not work for you.  The goal of this challenge is to raise self awareness about your own hydration levels and what’s healthy for you.**
    **Make sure you’re getting a balance of electrolytes through your diet and fluid intake as well, especially when you’re flushing them out via sweating during a strenuous workout.**

  • Baby it’s cold outside…

    Baby it’s cold outside…

    It’s January, it’s cold and gloomy, the sun is MIA, germs are spreading, and it’s easy to get bogged down in the ho-hum every day.  Why not embrace the cold and look to the positive side!  Did you know that being cold has many health benefits, including activating brown fat and helping regulate body weight?

    Now I’m not saying you need to go taking cold showers or anything, but there are some potential benefits to that as well…  But drinking cold water isn’t a bad idea – hey, we have a water drinking challenge in February anyway, why not make it cold?!

    And if you do happen to be exercising in the cold, please dress appropriately!  Not that you need a calculator to figure this out, but here’s one anyway :)  The site contains some ads, but it provides great tips like “wear a hat” and “pants would probably be a good idea”.

    Apparently these guys didn’t get the memo:

    *NOT dressed appropriately…

    If that’s not enough links in one post for you, here’s one more!

  • Do you H2O?

    Do you H2O?

    What is lost, must be regained.

    Water……Your body is composed of 60% water.   You lose it sweating (every CFer knows this – some more than others, no names!), going to the bathroom and even when you breathe.  Every cell, tissue and organ of your body needs water to function correctly.    So what happens when you don’t have enough?  Well, let’s not find out!

    Join CF for February’s Water Challenge!!   Every day for the month of February, drink 128 oz. of water…yes, 128 oz = 1 gallon… And see how you feel / look / perform at the end of the month compared to the beginning.  Take a picture, make a journal entry, send an email.  Just keep track for yourself – no outside monitoring, checking in, etc.  It’s all about YOU.

    To top it all off, CF is making it easy for you:  Buy an awesome Nalgene Corps Fitness 32 oz. water bottle – drink 4 full bottles per day – to track your intake for only $16 (while supplies last, available starting TODAY at the front desk).

    2015-01-28 12.13.53

    You can drink your water and look cool doing it! (purchase of water bottle not mandatory to participate in water challenge….but hey, why not look cool drinking your water?).  What’s in it for you?  Giving back to your body what it loses in the course of a workout, better kidney functioning, calorie control, establishing good habits and possibly breaking old (eliminating sodas and other “sweet” drinks), healthy skin, and the list goes on…

    Water has become the new chocolate for the month of February…heck with the heart shaped box of chocolates and get your water on instead!

    If you're seeing this sign a lot, you're probably doing it right!

    If you’re seeing this sign more often, you’re probably doing it right!

  • Share the CF Spirit: Bring a Friend

    From January 7-13, bring as many friends to any class for FREE! (CF member is encouraged to attend class with their friend(s) – yes you may bring multiple friends to one class – and how friendly would it be for you to say “here it is, good luck!”?  Think back to how you felt walking through the Bldg 7 doors on your first day, and make sure to be as welcoming as the rest of the CFers were to you when you started!)

    We all have friends who call us crazy (is that a fancy word for motivated?) for doing what they think we do at CF, but do they even know what we do?  Bring them in, show them the ropes.  Because the CF family is always happy to welcome new members who uphold the CF values and traditions:
    - being a part of something bigger than yourself
    - sacrificing yourself for the greater good of those around you
    – suffering together

  • This is your neck on texting…

    …or facebooking, or web surfing, or in general bad posturing.  Would you want an 8-year-old hanging from your head all day (assuming that’s not reality for you right now)?  This applies to more than just texting.  Think about how many times trainers remind you to “keep your head in a neutral position” and not to strain your neck (meaning put it in excessive flexion or extension) during push ups, dead lifts, etc.  It’s just plain bad for you!

    Here’s the full study, for you studious types…

  • Fallen, Not Forgotten

    Fallen, Not Forgotten

    This Friday, all class times will be holding the Hero WOD for Sean Flannery.

    **5:15 AM class start time will be moved to 5:30 AM for this day only.**

    Sean was KIA on 11/22/2010.  Help CF honor Sean and his family in remembering his sacrifice 4 years ago.  Brian, our dedicated CF trainer and Sean’s brother, will be attending the 5:30 PM class time and giving everyone the extra push to suffer through the workout.

    More information on Sean from his page on the Fallen Heroes Project website:

  • Find your flow… and other rules for working out

    Find your flow… and other rules for working out

    At CF, we hit pretty much all of these during any given workout.  Check out more excellent tips from Mark’s Daily Apple here!

    10 Rules of successful exercise (credit: Mark’s Daily Apple)
    1. Do what you love – check.  If you’re a CFer, you stick around because you love it (how you feel, how you look, how strong you are, your CF family.  I could go on and on!)
    2. Get a buddy (check – see above)
    3. Get outside (yes, even in bad weather!)
    4. Incorporate play (bear crawls, chase the rabbit, Indian runs, leap frogs.  Yep, we’ve got that covered!)
    5. Have a purpose (CFers – being a part of something bigger than yourself.  Contributing to a greater good.)
    6. Find your flow (zone out, get in the rhythm and keep it up whether it’s for 30 seconds at a time, or a 45-minute grinder)
    7. Feel the endorphin rush (post workout bliss.  ’nuff said)
    8. Don’t worry about the outcome (just be in the moment.  Don’t compare or compete, just get it done)
    9. Are you training or exercising? (there’s no wrong answer.  some of us fall into each category)
    10. Try something new (yep, every day.  How long had it been since you did rope climbs or hand stands or sled pushes before you came to CF?)
