Valley Center Athletics + Be Greater Nutrition
You can’t out exercise a bad diet. It’s true. One of the best things about CrossFit is the focus on lifestyle change not just one hour of exercise. We want you to learn to make your food work for you and help you achieve your health and fitness goals.
That’s why we teamed up with Be Greater Nutrition!
This program is different. This is not a diet. This is a lifestyle. A common sense approach to eating a balance of quality food to reach your goals. We give you the tools and the support, you do the work.

HOW MUCH TO EAT
One of the tools we use in our nutrition coaching programs is macro counting. At the most basic level macro counting is the amount of protein, carbohydrates, and fats you consume daily. We use macro counting to ensure you are receiving the right balance of protein, carbs, and fats to support your goals.
Think of grams of macros as gallons of fuel. You wouldn’t put an unknown amount of gas in the tank of your car and go on a long trip, right? Same with your body. Macros are fuel for your daily activities and you want the right amount of fuel in the tank.
What are your macros? This is where Be Greater Nutrition comes in. Our coaches will work with you one-on-one to develop a nutrition program specifically designed to your goals.
Accountability. When we say custom….we mean custom. Our coaches use your information to design a program tailored to your exact needs. Each week when you check-in your feedback will be used to adjust your program to keep you progressing.
Ready to be greater? Awesome!
