Episode 73: Making Nutrition the Foundation at HSN

nutrition the foundation

Nutrition is the foundation.

The picture that shows that the clearest is in Greg Glassman’s article, “What is Fitness?” He shares about the development of an athlete and what is needed. The illustration is a pyramid with nutrition resting at its base.

And Nicole Aucoin, the founder of Healthy Steps Nutrition (HSN) and owner of CrossFit HSN, agreed. She began her journey into the CrossFit world with the nutrition, and is making sure her gym, along with many others, are doing the same for their members.

In this episode of Box Talk, Aucoin sat down yet again with Heather Hartmann, the editor of Box Pro, to discuss the importance of having that nutrition base, systematizing nutrition coaching, approaching the holidays with members and more. Check out the episode and make nutrition the foundation at your Box.
