CFS Nutrition Seminar For Athletic Performance On Sunday June 10th
This Sunday at 12:00PM we will host our next Nutrition Seminar at Crossfit Springfield. We will be having special guest speaker Collin Popp from Crossfit Lincoln (pictured above) come and talk to us about all things nutrition and paleo with a special focus on pre and post workout nutrition and how it relates to strength gains and weight loss. Collin has a BS degree in physiology from University of Arizona and an MS degree in Nutrition & Health Science with a focus in Exercise Physiology and Nutrition from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. He is Crossfit-Lincoln’s strength and conditioning coach along side Phil Kneip (2011 1st place regional finisher and 2012 2nd place). Other topics of discussion will include nutrition basics, digestion, hormones and pathways and the process of food elimination trials and how they can improve our health. We are super excited to have Collin come and share all of his nutrition knowledge with us. So bring a pencil and paper to take some notes and join us Sunday at noon for another CFS Nutrition Seminar.
