Nutrition is the FOUNDATION

Winter Nutrition Challenge
With the holiday season behind us and a blank slate for a New Year ahead, this is the perfect time for many of us to start thinking about our goals for 2018. If any of your goals involve health and fitness, it is important to start with nutrition. Learning to properly fuel your body can help you reach your goals in the gym, on the scale, and beyond. To get 2018 started on the right foot, we’ll be starting up a 6-week Nutrition Challenge beginning on January 21!

This is not a strict Paleo or Whole 30 Challenge… yes, you can and should eat carbs! We will go over the ins and outs of how to incorporate your favorite foods (or healthier versions of your favorite foods) into your diet at the right times so you do not feel constantly restricted but can still make progress.

If you’ve never done a Nutrition Challenge, we highly recommend it. You will learn a lot about your current eating habits and how you can make better choices on a daily basis. It’s also a great way to get involved with the community and meet other members who are taking on the challenge with you. Or, maybe you’ve done several nutrition challenges… we still encourage you to join in! Taking a step back to evaluate your nutrition and dial it back for six weeks is beneficial for everyone.

The challenge will be led by Coach Michelle Boutet, a board certified specialist in Sports Dietetics and a Registered & Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist. You can check out here site here. She will be leading the kick-off lecture and reviewing your food logs throughout the challenge to offer advice and feedback. Don’t miss this opportunity to be helped by one of the best!

    Both sets of wall balls unbroken, so MUCH of that 14 mins was spent on mups.

    Shout outs to JACK for winning the 7PM over. No easy feat.
