It’s  a New Year and with a New Year comes resolutions and many goals to accomplish.  To be successful you need a plan of action and additional support from your fellow CrossFitters can come in really handy.  We don’t want you to think of a Paleo Challenge as limiting what you can do but taking advantage of all you can be and do!  We want this to be a life changing experience that changes your thinking and feelings about what you eat.  It is not meant to be a diet that makes you think about food all day and how deprived you are of everything you love to eat.  We also do not want you to have to give up social obligations with friends because you are doing a Paleo Challenge.  We want you to live life…full, healthy, and with long-term success!  If you are a new member or an old member this is a great way to check and recheck your nutrition especially after all of the holiday fun and festivities.

Paleo Challenge Coming…

This time, we will be running the challenge within the gym.  We have tried other challenges such as Whole Life and LuRong but this time we are going to run the challenge within the gym holding ourselves and you accountable.  This means that the more people we get to sign up the more winnings there will be.  The challenge is set to start Monday January 19th  and run through March 1st; we will have our informational meeting, measurements, pictures, body composition and weigh- in on Monday January 19th at 6:30pm.  There is a sign up sheet on the whiteboard, and shortly after you sign up you will receive an informational packet that will have the rules, grocery lists, and other additional information to help you get started.  We will have meetings every Sunday night at 6pm going over different topics and answer all your weekly questions.  The price of the challenge is $40 and all we will award prizes of the total value to the top 3 men and 3 woman finishers – we will announce the prizes midway through the challenge.

We will have a baseline workout on Thursday, January 22nd and retest the last week of the challenge.  This will kick off your personal evaluation.

Let’s start the New Year off right and get everyone involved in this fun learning experience that will not only change your way of thinking about food but change your family’s way of looking at food.  We will have weekly family friendly recipes, cooking workshops, and special informational guests to break things down.  Registration will begin on Tuesday January 6th and go through Sunday January 18th.

Here is an overview of the Challenge and dates:

  • January 6th- Registration begins + pick up info packet
