Hello CrossFit Sioux Falls ! My name is Amy Kubal and I am a registered and licensed dietitian. I just moved here from Rapid City and am excited to bring Paleo Principles and share my enthusiasm for nutrition and performance with you! First a little about me… I received an MS in Nutrition from Colorado State University in 2004 and have been practicing in the field since. I am currently working with the staff at “The Paleo Diet”, Robb Wolf and I have a personal blog – http://www.fuelasrx.blogspot.com Chris and I have some big things planned for CFSF in the way of nutrition – stay tuned!

I am also a fairly serious athlete and recovering LSD (Long Slow Distance/Chronic Cardio) addict. I have won two marathons (the only two I’ve run), and several 5K and 10K races. Additionally, I have competed in the Pike’s Peak Accent, placing third in my division and have summitted all 59 of Colorado’s 14,000 foot mountains and quite a few peaks under 14,000. Currently I am LOVING CrossFit and have been following the CrossFit Strength Bias and CrossFit Endurance programs with awesome results.

As far as my diet philosophy goes… Well, first a little history. As a recovering LSD/Chronic Cardio addict, I subsided on probably 75-85% carbs until this February when I had an epiphany, (brought on by my Paleo friend Scott Jones). He challenged my way of thinking and everything that I had been taught about diet and training. I started digging into the research and found out everything that I had been taught and was practicing was WRONG! It was then that I started changing things. Now on a smarter exercise program and with a diet that is closer to Zone/Paleo than Dean Ornish or USDA, I have been able to accomplish some pretty awesome things (like pull-ups and a marathon win). Best of all – I feel GREAT!

So, I want to help you reach your full potential too! That’s why I got in touch with Chris, because together we can help you on your way to a stronger, leaner, healthier you. No matter what your goals are – whether it is weight loss, mass gain, leaning out, maintaining what you’ve got, or simply answering your questions about diet and nutrition – tell me what you need and I’ll help you.

I am excited to get this started – so let me know what you think and what you need. Because, “You can’t out train a sucky diet.”
