Intuitive Eating is the newest buzz term in nutrition. 🍽️
It's a fancy term, but for some, eating without guidelines can feel like a pipe dream. And what about the rest of us whose intuition simply isn't that great yet? 🤔
On this week's #9NationPodcast, Coach Gabe (@gabekrepper) shares how he approaches Intuitive Eating with his nutrition clients, and Dane (@dane_leavy) reveals how he makes this lifestyle work for his own nutrition needs.

If your 2021 needs a healthy habit tune-up, then we highly recommend the Whole Life Challenge to get and stay on track.
This 6-week, gamified, holistic approach is one we whole-heartedly endorse at CrossFit9. And we're doing it as a team, so you'll have a group to lean on for accountability and questions.
In today's #9Nation Podcast episode, Coaches Jacqueline MacNeil and Gabe Krepper discuss everything you need to know if you're curious about the Whole Life Challenge!
2020 brought us many things ranging from "meh" to "oh hell no". But one of the great things to emerge from the shutdown earlier this year: It brought us our newest full-time coach, Kyle Radune!
While some of you have met Kyle in class, you might not know the depth of knowledge he brings to our team, nor his inspiring background story. He's much more than a friendly face!
This week Coach Dane sits down with Kyle to talk about how he crash landed at CrossFit9, how he can help our 9'ers, and how his own fitness journey led him to lose more than 90 lbs. (NOT a typo!)
When it comes to winning with nutrition, food prep can make or break your efforts. And it's easy to not know where to begin.
Today Lindsay interviews Coach Gabe (whose food prep game is Instagram-famous!) to get his top three tips for food preppers who are just getting into the game.
Our August Specialty Class is here by popular demand: Gymnastics!
When it comes to all-around coordination, body control, and spatial awareness, gymnasts rule the athletic world.
In CrossFit we might not ask you to do back handsprings, but having a good grasp of the fundamentals can be helpful with nearly every aspect of your movement, bodyweight or not.
Host-Coach Megan sits down with our resident gymnastic specialist, Coach Dane, to talk all about our newest class.
If you're interested, join us Sundays 10:30 AM during August. Be sure to reserve your spot in Wodify, as spots fill up fast! Reservations open 48 hours ahead.

I think we can all agree that 2020 has - so far - been trash.
We're all feeling quarantine fatigue, we're exhausted, we're losing (or have already lost) motivation.
We're as aware as ever about the importance of our health. But making the continued investment can start to feel pointless when we're far off track from the 2020 health goals we had in mind.
Coach Megan shares some intel on how to keep your mind and body in the game, even when you can feel yourself losing steam.
Check out the full show notes here: https://crossfit9.com/9nation-podcast-ep-11-how-to-get-fitness-wins-in-2020/
Feeling just... meh?
First: Know you're not alone!
In Fit For What Episode 10, Coaches Megan Holmes and Lindsay Alvestad chat about what to do if your workout mojo is MIA, and why you shouldn't just throw in the towel and wait for the gym to open.
Show notes and more:
Not a "home workout person"? Same, friend. After all, there's a reason we love to throw down in a warehouse gym as a big 9'er family!
It's easy to whine about not having enough equipment, dismiss home workouts as "too easy", or feel like you can't reach the desired intensity without the competitive drive of a class.
But with the coronavirus shutdown in full effect, now's the time to make do with what you have, and get creative with the rest.
Armed with these awesome tips from coaches Gabe Krepper and Dane Leavy, you might just surprise yourself by making some serious quarantine gains!
We're currently shut down for service due to coronavirus, but that doesn't mean we're slacking!
CrossFit9 co-owners Zack Ola and Lindsay Alvestad give us the dish on what improvements are happening ahead of reopen.
Spoilers: The answer is probably!
In this episode, CrossFit9 Coaches Dane and Lindsay talk about:
What the assessments are (and the first kind is FREE and easy!)
Why you'd need an assessment (and it's not just for injuries!)
How assessments can help us make your workout experience a truly custom one -- even in classes!
Get more details on CrossFit9 athlete assessments at crossfit9.com/assess.
It's Heart Month, the perfect time to announce and launch Wodify Pulse, our new heart rate monitor service at CrossFit9.
Access to heart rate monitors is nothing new. However, this is the first time it will be integrated right into classes at CrossFit9 so you can use heart rate training as your workout is in progress. You might have already seen our team beta testing the Myzone devices in the gym.
We're taking preorders now at CrossFit9.com. The first batch is ready to deliver on Friday, Feb. 14th – Valentine's Day!
We hear variations of this all the time:
I think I might be coming down with something.
I've been really sick but I feel a little better so I came to the gym.
I was out late drinking, but I want to work off my hangover.
But what is the right answer? Should we be working out when we don't feel well?
For answers, host Dane Leavy interviews Coach Nick, who by day helps heal the sick as a registered nurse.
It's one of the many unspoken reasons people come to CrossFit9: To make friends!
Making friends as an adult can be awkward, difficult, anxiety-inducing, and debilitating. But even if it's not your forté, you can work on it just like any other skill!
Coaches Dane Leavy and Lindsay Alvestad share their tips for growing your social circle and getting the most out of your time in the box.
If you need to kickstart 2020 with a little healthy habit tuneup, the Whole Life Challenge is right up your alley!
In this episode, host Dane Leavy interviews fellow CrossFit9 Coach and WLC director Gabe Krepper about who should do the challenge, how we're doing it as a team, and what to expect.
