Many of you have already heard/read the news: CrossFit is going strong on Maui and several of our athletes, including Coach Kaye, have been quoted in a recent Maui News article published on January 31st.
This is very exciting for all of us at CrossFit UpCountry Maui, and we think the author did a great job of painting the picture of what we do. What a great way to start 2010.

Get ready for the Paleo/Zone Challenge!
CrossFit works, no question. If you’ve been doing it for awhile and aren’t seeing or feeling results then you need to examine first and foremost your diet. The Paleo diet is all about the quality of food you eat, i.e; no processed foods. Meat, fish, vegetables, fruits, nuts and oils only. The Zone diet is about the quantity. You should be eating a proper balance of protein, carbohydrates and fat but in portions that provide you with sustenance only. A diet too high in carbohydrates and calories is the biggest culprit to preventing fitness gains and in losing body fat. Then you need to look at the frequency of your workouts. CrossFit recommends 4 to 6 high intensity WODs per week.
Sign up to take the challenge for the entire month of February eating Paleo/Zone. Details on the board and discussion before and after the workout.
