Fascinated by whiteboard diagrams of your small intestine? Find yourself drawn to the sexy world of prostaglandins and transglutaminase? Hoping to pick up more creative alternatives to curse words? (Fracken, smuck!) Today, the 9 Blog and RobbWolf.com are teaming up in a shameless love triangle of self-promotion, as the Paleolithic Solutions Seminar and Whole9 Nutrition Workshops hit the road this spring and summer. Fitness-minded folks may wonder if the Whole9 is trying to compete with the PSS, or if our events are a “one or the other” decision. No on both counts! Turns out you can achieve serious nutritional synergy by attending BOTH events, if you’re able.
As described in our recent review of the first PSS, Robb Wolf packs a metric fudge-ton of science-y nutritional goodness into his eight hour seminar. He gives a broad yet detailed overview of big picture nutritional concepts, methodically supporting his material with scientific evidence and years of real world experience. You’ll learn the fundamental principles behind everything from hormones to the immune system to basic tenets of health, wellness and disease. He’ll explain how to translate those big picture concepts to a variety of dietary practices, and he’ll leave you with enough know-how, resources and recommendations to keep you looking, feeling and performing better for a very long time.
After Robb’s PSS, you’ll be armed with enough information to implement good nutritional plans for you and your clients. But what do you do when more specific, personal questions come up? (Things like, how do I manage a nutritional challenge in my gym? What can I do to improve my shoulder tendonitis? How do you eat good food when traveling for business?) Well, that’s where Whole9 comes in.
Our Whole9 Nutrition Workshops show you more specifically how to apply your nutritional know-how for YOUR goals and YOUR lifestyle. We keep our workshops small on purpose, so we have plenty of time for individual Q&A and offer lots of individual attention. And we tailor our material to the crowd – so we’ll talk vegetarianism with a group of yogis, endurance nutrition with triathaletes and maintaining muscle mass and bone density with a group of CrossFit Seniors. We’ll show you how to apply all of the nutritional concepts you’ve learned to the real world – YOUR world – in a way that is effective, sustainable and balanced.
Your first opportunity for nutritional synergy is in April, when Robb pulls up on CrossFit Hoboken (April 10th, Hoboken, NJ), and the Whole9 hits both Albany CrossFit (April 24th, Albany, NY) and NYC Endurance (April 25th, New York, NY).
Looking forward to seeing you on the road later this year!
