CrossFit YO4: Choose Health
It's Time for You to Choose Health!
Our Project. One Community. A New Health Culture.
Our CrossFit Yo4 Community Health Projects are for anyone looking to drastically change their lives for the better through Health, Fitness & Nutrition.
We aim to motivate, educate and inspire through a combination of interactive health, fitness and nutrition materials, community based fitness activities and a varied approach to education that is not only accessible to all, but also applicable to all.
Our country is becoming increasingly sedentary and combining it with a terrible diet that is sending us, and the world in general, towards a full blown crisis. This deadly combination is the perfect storm for chronic disease, Diabetes, Cardiovascular disease to name a couple.
CrossFit may be the optimal solution to this ever growing problem. Through functional movement performed at high intensity, relative to every individual, and a natural diet consisting of meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit little starch and no sugar you really can get to the root cause of many of these ills immediately! This isn't to say the healing process won't be a long, hard road but with support, education and a desire to choose health you can change your life.
To help you make that choice we bring you the CrossFit YO4 Community Health Projects
We now have 3 classes per week that will focus directly on changing sedentary habits and making informed nutritional choices.
These sessions will be all CrossFit but at a level suited to those of us who are looking to take the first genuine steps towards change and a healthier life.
Each 1 hour class will include 3 workouts of between 2 - 10 minutes working through the foundational CrossFit Movements - Squats, Presses, Lunges etc - and during rest periods we will discuss nutritional information, lifestyle changes and the effect on the body and mind. Participants will be encouraged to log food intake and at no additional cost discuss this directly with Michael and the YO4 Team.
Classes will be £10 per person and can be booked online - again this is designed to be the most basic and necessary form of CrossFit that inspires the biggest changes!
Further to this we will also be looking for volunteers and referrals for a 12 week pilot program designed to show the value of CrossFit and its effect on your health.
How does the 12 week program work:
- Initial health checks with NHS including BMI, Blood Pressure, Blood Glucose.
- Physical assessments made through balance, respiratory tests and cognitive function.
- 2 Free Classes Per Week covering all aspects of fitness - strength, endurance, balance and more.
- Nutritional Planning, coaching & tracking to highlight how your food can literally change the entire structure of your body.
- Lifestyle coaching & motivation to ensure this isn't a short term fad, but rather a true lifestyle change.
- Lose weight & find a natural, healthy balance for your body and mind.
- Reduce risk of chronic diseases like Diabetes, Heart attack, Stroke, Cancers and Dementia etc.
- Improve your quality of life in more ways than you can imagine and have a great time doing it!
- Group classes for motivation, enjoyment & friendship - the social aspect makes a huge difference when trying to make a change!
- Clear, life changing achievements & changes that you will see and we will record! we want to show everyone just how possible this is.
In the early stages of the project we will:
2 free 1 hour fitness classes per week for suitable individuals within the community.
Measurements and metrics taken upon the commencement of training to display progress and efficacy of training and lifestyle changes.
Provide consistent, understandable guidance to all things relating to health and fitness through social media, local events and other pathways.
