Wednesday 1/2– Normal Schedule
Coming Soon: 2019 Winter Nutrition Challenge
With the holiday parties behind us, now is the time to start thinking about goals for 2019. If any of these goals involve health and fitness, it is important to start with nutrition. Learning how to properly fuel your body can help you reach your goals in the gym, on the scale and beyond. To kick 2019 off on the right foot, we’ll be starting up a six-week Nutrition Challenge beginning on January 13th!
This not a strict paleo or Whole 30 diet. We will teach you the ins and outs of how to incorporate your favorite foods (or healthier versions of them) into your diet at the right times. You do not need to feel constantly restricted in order to make progress! You can check out the rules of the challenge here.
If you’ve never done a Nutrition Challenge with us, 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. Already done several nutrition challenges in the past? We still want you to join! Taking this step back to evaluate your nutrition and committing to dialing things in for six weeks is beneficial for everyone.
This challenge also has an added twist – this time around, we will be working in TEAMS! Teams will add an extra level of accountability, motivation and FUN! Much like we all work harder during a partner workout, we hope you’ll be more likely to stick with the challenge if you know your teammates are counting on you. We’ll do our best to pair you with people who work out at similar times as you so that you can connect and check in while you’re at the gym. Get your thinking caps on… start brainstorming some clever team names!
This challenge will be led by coach Michelle Boutet, a board certified specialists in Sports Dietetics and a Registered & Licensed Dietitian. You can check out her 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!
If you’re interested in participating, please sign up HERE. Please note – signing up through the link is needed to make sure you are placed on a team, added to the food tracking sheet and receive important communication about the challenge. Thanks!
Save the important dates below and stay tuned to the blog for more updates and important information. If you cannot make the lecture, please read through the rules HERE and let us know if you have any questions. We can’t wait to see the results of your hard work!
