Nutrition Tips



By combining the potent training stimulus of constantly varied functional movements, executed at high intensity with a sound diet of whole unprocessed foods eaten in the proper amounts, your results will be nothing short of life changing. 

Start the new year off right by trying one or a few of these strategies to keep you accountable:
Remove all processed foods and sugar laden treats from your pantry. 
Attend CrossFit 3x a week. 
Eat Quality Foods - Meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. 
Keep intake levels to support exercise and not body fat by weighing and measuring your food, this will provide precision and accuracy to the diet.
If it's too early to get out the measuring cups try this eyeball method:
Palm size meat
Palm size x2 for veggies OR Palm size x1 for dense carbs
Thumb size of nuts, seeds or oils.
Eat in a 12 hour window, three meals and two snacks. 

For individualized nutrition counseling and precise measurements contact Aimee Lyons (crossfitkop@gmail.com)

2022 Test Days at CrossFit King of Prussia


As we move away from 2021 into 2022, we will continue to evolve our programming to get the best results out of our athletes at CrossFit King of Prussia. We want our athletes to be good at CrossFit and the ten general physical skills so that they have a general, physical, preparedness that enables them to do well at any sport or task life throws their way now, and long into the future. Our program is based on measurable, observable repeatable data (loads, times, distance, reps) which in turn allows us to assess everyone's current level of fitness and put forth a program that continually challenges them and allows for the best possible human performance no matter what your relative intensity is. 

With the goal of bringing more to the class hour while maintaining our constant pursuit of solid form and technique for all athletes, our programming will incorporate the following:

1. 12 TEST DAYS/benchmark workouts, 8 STRENGTH lifts, 14 gymnastic SKILLS and 4 monostructural skill tests programmed on a rotating 4 month cycle. 

2. As a change this year we have moved from quarterly test days to a trimester based system when consistently retesting of benchmarks. (3X a year vs. 4X a year)

3. We will continue to incorporate strength and MORE metcons into our one hour 1-2x per week as well as consistent gymnastic skill work 2-3 x a week. 

If a testing progress is not a part of your programming, there is no way to evaluate the success or failure of your programming.

A similar plan has been a successful testing process for the last six years at CrossFit KoP and will continuously help us evaluate our progress over the next year. Together, the workouts will test an athlete’s capacity in all the CrossFit time domains (short, moderate, long), the movements (Weightlifting, Gymnastics and Mono-structural elements), and the ten general physical skills.

We will use these workouts on a continuous basis to help us evaluate whether our programming is developing athletes in all areas, not just one or two, and to keep athletes focused on their continuous improvement and consistency at the gym.

Please note, these will NOT be the only workouts and lifts you will see programmed throughout the year but prove as our testing ground.

To take full advantage of the upcoming year it will be imperative that you log your workouts and check in on the blog to see your results and "compare to" times and loads.

January Member Spotlight


 We'd like to Spotlight Megan O. this month for her outstanding ability to Handstand walk with great ease and pristine style. We asked Megan to share with us how she got there. Check it out!


Hi, I'm Megan O!
I am an elementary school health & physical education teacher at a private school in West Chester, PA. I also coach tumbling at a cheerleading gym.

So Megan, how long have you been doing CrossFit?
I have been doing CrossFit for about 5 years with a few breaks in between.

You seem to gravitate toward gymnastics, tell us why.
My background is actually in cheerleading and not gymnastics. I cheered for about 10 years. My favorite part of cheer is tumbling. I love the thrill of how high and powerful my tumbling pass could be. Tumbling definitely helped me with my handstand push ups and handstand walks. Some people say I walk better on my hands than I do on my feet ( I’ve had a few foot injuries in my day )


We see you’re really strong at handstand walks, did they come natural to you? Do you have any tips or tricks you could pass along?
I've been flipping myself upside down for pretty much all my life. We actually never did handstand walks in cheerleading but I was very comfortable on my hands. Because I was so comfortable, learning to handstand walk didn’t take me long.

My advice for anyone working on their handstand walks is before you start walking learn to be comfortable in a freestanding handstand and learn how to fall out of a handstand properly. If you can hold a freestanding handstand for 5+ seconds you’re going to be more comfortable pushing yourself while walking. If you know how to safely fall out of a handstand you’ll be more likely to take that extra step.


Any funny stories or mistakes you’ve made doing them?
I’ve stepped on my hair a few times. So if you have long hair definitely tie it up.

Can you remember a time when you couldn’t do handstand walks? What was the process like being able to finally do them RX?
I do remember not being able to do them. I was very determined so I I practiced every single day until I got them. It took me about a month.
