    Nutrition Testimonial

    "I've been working with Coach Jared since December 2018 on this Nutrition Journey and it's taken a lot of trial and error. On my behalf, learning what works well with my body and trusting the process. I hadn't lost a lot on the scale so two months in I started measuring myself monthly to find a different way to measure my progress. Since February I've lost a total of 6 inches all over my body. Mind you according the scale I weigh the same but it's gone up and down...then August came around and I've hit a personal record 6xs in 30 days, I lost almost 10 pounds in a couple months, and my endurance is like never before. This success actually started after being fed MORE food, who would've ....

    What’s your tip on injury prevention?


    Wanna work out for the rest of your life with minimal rest days? I do! The potential for minor injury associated with all types of fitness can be minimized if you act on the following 2 tips.
    1. CrossFit of Ithaca emphasizes technique and skill over the load on your bar.
    This point is fundamental to staying safe and making gains. Following your coach’s cues during skill work gives you efficient movement and safe workouts. Then, keep your good technique throughout the WOD.
    2. Get mobilizing!
    The quality of the ....

    What’s your tip on maintaining a positive mindset?

    "To help develop my own positive mindset, I started this list a while back when I was having a tough time acknowledging how amazing my life is. Sometimes remembering how healthy I am in the middle of a WOD or how lucky I am on my way to work is a battle hard won. Having a mindset where we remember we get to choose our experience of life is a practice.

    Since starting the list, it has grown to over 7 feet tall and pulled me up many times!

    It’s so simple: I write down things I’m grateful for. And, to be honest, there are A LOT of food items listed. Along with spaghetti, maple syrup (2x), butter, ....

    What’s your tip on building confidence to lift weights/try new movements at the gym?

    "One of the ways CrossFit in general builds confidence is through scaling of movements. This allows for a group of athletes of varying strengths and abilities to do the same workout, some with modifications, so that everyone is getting the same intensity in their workout. This in itself builds confidence. I encourage athletes to scale to where they’re comfortable and then go a step beyond. Getting comfortable being uncomfortable and experiencing their own successes builds confidence in our athletes!" - Coach Jess

    Coach's Tip

    Hi, my name is Ellie Gardner; I'm the media manager and one of the interns here at CrossFit of Ithaca. We're starting CFI's blog again and I will try to post at least once a week. Here you will find Coaches Tips, Athlete Highlights, and more. Coach's Tip:
    "One single choice can lead you closer to your goals. Starting with just one can make it significantly easier to compile a bunch. (Think of it like a snowball - once you have the starting ball, the rest is much easier to ball up!) For example, choosing to drink more water can start the snowball effect of better choices. Start small to get the ball rolling!
    This is a proven way to get closer to your goals, whatever they may be. ....

    "On September 11, 2016, and every day since, I’ve said, ‘I’m not drinking today.’ I didn’t plan it.I woke up that Sunday morning and knew I needed to make a change if I wanted a chance to enjoy my life or even live a long one. Alcohol and substances were playing too big a part of my life.Anxiety and depression were becoming unmanageable. On Sunday I stopped medicating myself with substances and on Wednesday I began Foundations at CFI. I felt awful and my nerves were on edge.CoachesJared, Nina, and Lisa were kind, ....
