2019 Spring Nutrition Challenge: It’s All About Balance (May 28th-June 25th)
This nutrition challenge is for everyone -whether you’ve never given your diet a second thought, or you’ve done several of these challenges in the past. Our goal is to educate you on how you can make healthier choices every day and properly fuel your body to crush it in the gym. We are focused on building your personal health template to encourage healthy food choices beyond the 30 day program and want to empower you to better understand how food fuels your body. This challenge will less strict than previous challenges. We still want to promote balanced eating with an emphasis on carbs, protein, healthy fats, and veggies at each meal. And the less added sugar, alcohol, and dairy you consume over the duration of 30 days, the better you will look and feel!
This will be an individual challenge, but everyone will be assigned an “accountability buddy”. Together you will work to hold each other accountable and keep each other motivated throughout the 30 day challenge. Also note that the benchmark workouts will not be done in classes. But they will involve three separate components that you should be able do before or after a WOD.
