The quality of your food matters more than it’s calorie count

Below, Jerry fights with the double unders early on in this WOD. Jerry is a convert, not only his a newbie CrossFitter, which inevitably makes him awesome, but he is also the owner of our noisy neighbor Zumba studio. Make sure and say hi to him if you see him in class and maybe he will teach you a thing or two for the dance clubs…

“It’s not that calories don’t count; indeed they do. But it’s a lot easier to control calories by eating healthfully and avoiding junk foods and sodas than it is to delude yourself into thinking you can count them accurately.”
- Marion Nestle, professor of nutrition at New York University and author of Food Politics
