Top Diets for CrossFit Athletes
There’s a lot of noise out there on diets. It’s easy to get lost in it! We’ll highlight the basics of some of the top diets CrossFit athletes follow.

Everything You Need to Know About the 2018 CrossFit Open
Each year hundreds of thousands of athletes signup to compete in the CrossFit Open. It’s an annual 5-week competition consisting of 5 weekly workouts (WOD) where CrossFit athletes can compare their fitness aptitude against the world.
For many, it’s an exciting and engaging community event. For others, it’s a chance to fuel the competitive spirit in all of us. It’s also the first step to the annual CrossFit Games.
CrossFit Inc. is notorious for being very secretive about each Open. Namely, the workouts. The Open’s architect, Dave Castro, is known for sharing ominous clues for each WOD, which has spawned the phrase “Dave Castro is a Prick”. Many CrossFit fans will find Ronnie Castro the more palatable of the two Castro’s.
Each year CrossFit fans scramble to prepare themselves for the Open. What’s new this year? WOD Fever has the rundown.
