Announcing : CFP/RISE Partnership with The Fuel Method

At CrossFit Pineville and RISE Charlotte, we strive to offer the very best service!  We specialize in group fitness, offer programs for all ages and fitness levels, and two different training programs: CrossFit methodology as well as high intensity interval training.  We aim to please each individual athlete and offer add on programming, individual program design, and personal training.  We offer specialty classes and skill classes.  We also have a Physical Therapist in house, Dr. Amy Bullock of Fortress Physical Therapy, to offer support for your musculoskeletal system and help you train smart and pain free.

The area we truly have felt we are lacking : Nutrition.  Our coaches have a great knowledge of nutrition, however none specialize in this area, nor have extensive training in it.  We can discuss the topic with our athletes, make recommendations on small changes they can make in regards to food choices and habits, recommend supplements, etc.  However, we haven’t been able to provide the one on one nutrition coaching that many athletes are looking for and need.

Enter Alex Bladek and The Fuel Method.

Brandon and Michelle actually met Alex a few years ago through Brandon’s best friend, Paul.  Paul has a CrossFit gym in Michigan where (small world!) Alex would train when visiting home.  After circumstances changed, Alex and her fiance Hannes became members of CrossFit Pineville last year and thus began a conversation of how we can better serve you, our members!

A little more about Alex and The Fuel Method : Alex has her Masters in Counseling with a specialization in sport and health psychology.  She has completed her Precision Nutrition Level 1 certification and is also a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer.  Alex grew up an athlete, but once she stopped playing organized sports, unhealthy habits started to emerge and the weight started to creep on.  At the end of her senior year of college, she decided to make a change not only for her health, but her self-confidence as well.  She started taking control of her fitness and diet again.  It took years for her to discover something that was not restrictive and could be maintained long-term.

Through her school studies, working with mentors, and studying the field, she developed The Fuel Method.  Using The Fuel Method, Alex aims to assist others in navigating through the excess of information so they can achieve and maintain their goals!  The Fuel Method is a habit-based approach to health and nutrition, tailored to the individual, counseling you to a healthy relationship with food.  The Fuel Method takes all aspects of YOU into account – from your lifestyle to your food preferences to your body type, it all plays a role in achieving your goals.  The Fuel Method provides one-on-one accountability and guidance, goal setting, newsletters loaded with recipes, resources and tips, progress metrics (like measurements and weekly check-ins) and access to an ‘Active Members’ Facebook group.  After working with Alex and The Fuel Method, you will walk away with the tools, skills and knowledge to fuel your body and mind, for life!

We are so excited to partner with Alex and looking forward to all she will bring to the table!  If you are interested in a consult with Alex, don’t hesitate, contact her ASAP!  We are working with Alex to plan a nutrition challenge open to any CFP or RISE athletes starting in just a few weeks!  Details are being finalized now, so stay tuned for more info!!!

Welcome Alex and The Fuel Method to CFP and RISE!!
