Nutrition Challenges

Summer Kick-Off: 30-Day Nutrition Reset (June 1 – June 30th)
With summer just around the corner, it’s time to get our nutrition in check before we are overwhelmed with cookouts, parties, and day drinking. What better way to get back on track than with another nutrition challenge? We’re switching the format up again and focusing on a shorter, stricter 30-day challenge. The challenge will be wrapped up and over with before your July 4th Celebrations… so why not participate?!

We’ll also be offering two levels of the challenge this time around: An introductory level and a Advanced level. The introductory level will focus primarily on eating whole, healthy foods with some consideration for timing to best fuel your workouts. If you’ve done our nutrition challenges in the past, the Advanced level may be a good challenge for you. In addition to focusing on eating quality whole foods at appropriate times, we’ll also dial in quantities by weighing and measuring all of our meals. It’s only for thirty days… so make the commitment and get involved! More details to follow, but save the important dates below:
