I decided to write about my recent experience at the Tony Robbins seminar Unleash The Power Within, to give others a good idea of what they can expect if they’ve been on the fence about attending a Tony Robbins seminar. My goal isn’t to try to convince you to go, it’s simply to provide you with my insights having experienced it first-hand, and some information so you feel prepared with what to expect at what many have a called a life-changing event.
Despite 45 million Americans going on diets every year and spending in excess of $33 billion on weight loss products, 2/3 of the population is overweight or obese. Our nation needs education about nutrition, now more than ever! Being overweight doesn’t just provide physical limitations and health issues, it can cause problems in our relationships, making people feel self-conscious and disconnected from the person they truly feel they are.
Whether you’re a CrossFitter, soccer player, gymnast or American ninja warrior, fueling your performance will be a huge part of your ultimate success when your day of competition comes around. Many non-competitive athletes assume that the key difference between themselves and competitors is that competitive athletes train many more hours than them and that’s what sets them apart. Whilst it might be true that plenty more hours are spent practicing, training, honing their athletic skills and improving strength, the biggest differentiator is that competitive athletes include nutrition as a part of their training regimen.
Nick is a newer member of North Naples CrossFit but he’s certainly not unfamiliar with the fitness scene. As a young police officer, staying on top of his health and fitness comes with the job!

Nick had seen the success his buddy Vince had with tracking macros and so he decided to give it a shot with the help of Own Your Eating and our 21-day nutrition jump start. Check out his amazing results in just 21 days!
I’m sure you’ve heard this time and time again, but the most significant fitness gains are made in the kitchen not in the gym. Of course, training hard is important, but your efforts can all too easily be undermined by a poor diet. Put your hand up if you’ve ever though to yourself “I don’t get it, I train all week, I eat pretty decent, so why don’t I look like a CrossFitter?!” ??♀️
If you are constantly bouncing from fad diet to fad diet, it’s pretty unlikely that you’ll get the results you want. After all, results require consistency. However, knowing where to start with your nutrition can be a bit confusing, so let’s break it down for you!
Here we are, less than 50 days into the New Year and already those big ambitions for a “New Year, New You!” are quickly diminishing. The pledge to work out every day, quit drinking alcohol during the week and to get 8 hours sleep every night lasted all of about 2 weeks before life got the better of you. You’re wondering whether anyone else is still sticking to their New Year’s resolutions and how anyone could possibly juggle a full time job, family and rock a killer set of 6-pack abs. Surely these people aren’t human? Or they don’t eat or they have a staff of people helping them with everything!
Leanne was one of our winners from our first 21 Day Nutrition Jump Start of 2019! Leanne is a member of North Naples CrossFit and took part in this nutrition jump start to improve her health and get started on the long and slow process of healthy weight gain.
Taking control of your nutrition means cooking more than you were before. Sorry to burst your bubble if you thought differently! Whether you love spending time in the kitchen or it feels like a necessary evil, we know that having the right tools to hand can help minimize the time spent on less enjoyable tasks. Some of these might seem like a bit of a splurge, but trust us, they’re worth it!
