EXCITING NEWS! Paul Jaminet, co-author of The Perfect Health Diet, will be doing a brief Q&A with CFNYC members talk while he’s in town for business this Thursday from 5-6pm at the new space at 44 W. 28th St., 2nd floor. Paul writes: “I think since time is so limited it would be best to prioritize Q&A. I’ll bring printouts of our food plate and if people want me to talk, I can talk about that, why the food plate was constructed the way it is, why different things are healthy. For example, what factors determine meat quality, why beef is better than pork, if people are interested in that; or which plant foods are better.” This is a great opportunity for anyone who missed Paul’s earlier talk for us this past fall. This talk is free to all members of CrossFit NYC, including Elements students.

One point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each calorie is one point.
