Nutrition Challenge Results!
This was the biggest CFS Nutrition challenge yet with over 55 people signed up for the six-week team-based challenge. Although not everyone was focused on weight loss, together the gym lost a total of 292 lbs, most of which was body fat! We are very proud of how well everyone supported each other and remained compliant and consistent. A lot goes into determining the winners, and the top teams were very, very close.
Overall Team Winners: Pho Keene Great
Team Members: Mooch, Shane M, Jason T, Phil G, Ben C and Toby M
Fueled by their competitive spirits, this team was determined to win from the beginning. They all really came together despite busy work and travel schedules. They stayed committed to their early am workout schedules even on the darkest, coldest mornings, and even had fun doing so. They learned how to incorporate more veggies into their diet, eat healthy while traveling, and they also saw some great fitness and body composition results. As a team, they lost a total of 63 lbs! They also PR’d their clean and jerks and got faster and fitter in the benchmark WODs. Amazing job, we are all proud of you! We hope you continue to work together in the future.
Male Winner: Sean G
Sean’s determination and consistency were very impressive throughout the challenge. He learned a great deal about nutrition and how to fuel his body properly. Sean is a great example of how you need to eat enough to lose weight; he was eating close to 3000 calories every day! He saw significant weight loss of 21 lbs (9% of his body weight) in just six weeks. He lost 3 inches off his waist and 3.2% body fat. He meal prepped most of his meals but remained flexible when dining out. He cooked more at home, avoided alcohol, dairy, and added sugar. He pushed himself in workouts but also took rest days as needed (and even started doing yoga). His 27 rep increase during the 7 min Cindy benchmark WOD is further evidence that he also became more fit. We are very proud of Sean and are excited to see him continue with his health and fitness goals. Great work, Sean!
Female Winner: Joelle M
A nutrition challenge veteran, Joelle was aware of the benefits that focusing on nutrition and health can provide. She remained steadfast throughout the challenge and put the time and effort into all the right things. She made time for meal prep and brought her food with her everywhere. She was consistent with workouts and rest days and made sure to get enough sleep. Over the course of six weeks, she lost 5.7% of her body weight (10.6 lbs), 4.7% body fat and 2.75 inches off her waist. She also shaved 17 seconds of her 1k row time, PR’d her clean and jerk by 10 lbs, and increased her reps on the benchmark WOD by 29! Amazing job, Joelle!
We hope everyone can incorporate the things they learned and find a good balance with their health and fitness moving forward.
