The Most Effective Fitness Programs Are Founded on a Base of Sound Nutrition
The amounts, timing, and types of foods we choose throughout the day have powerful impacts on our body composition, health, recovery from exercise, blood sugars, heart health, focus at work, performance, and more.
Exercise alone without an intentional focus on diet result in improvements in strength, conditioning, and fitness, but almost never results in the body composition changes you are after. Simply put, you can’t out exercise a bad diet.

The CrossFit Tigard PAW Nutrition Coaching Process
Our Nutrition Coaching Programs are extremely interactive. You will NOT simply get a meal plan and then be left to your own devices. You will first go through a thorough fact finding stage to truly understand where you are at now, where you would like to go, what has (and hasn’t) worked for you in the past, and any other special needs or considerations you may have. Your meal plan template will then be customized uniquely for you based on sound scientific dieting principles. You will then work with our dietitian to fully understand how to implement your meal plan. Throughout your first 4-13 weeks (depending on the program you choose) you will have the opportunity to check in with our Dietitian each week for progress tracking, troubleshooting, and support. If you aren’t on track with your goals, we will adjust your calories, macronutrients, timing, and provide other support to dial your plan in just for you. After your Kickstart or Transformation program, you will have the opportunity to graduate into ongoing nutrition coaching, where you will continue to check in with our dietitian and receive support, adjustment, and fine tuning as your dietary needs and behaviors change over time.
