Fall Nutrition Challenges are HERE! September 20th – October 31st
Though it may be hard to accept, Labor Day has come and gone and summer is winding down. With that comes the end of endless barbecues, drinking on rooftops, daily ice cream, etc. Fall is here, and it is time to get our nutrition in check! Our fall nutrition challenges are always a great way to refocus after a summer of fun and help us lead into the holiday season with a healthy foot forward. This year, we’ve decided to change it up just a bit and offer two different versions of our challenge. Read more about them below, pick the one that best suits you and your goals, and get involved!
What: This is our classic, 6-week Paleo Challenge. The goal of the challenge is to eat nothing but real, whole foods for the duration of the six weeks. Eat only meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch, and no sugar. You’ll record your daily food intake and we’ll track some baseline measurements (weight, hips, waist), along with some benchmarks in the gym. At the end of the challenge, the goal is to be leaner, stronger and faster… and much healthier!
Who: This challenge is for EVERYONE! If you are new to CrossFit or Paleo, now is the time to join in with the support of your fellow workout buddies. Seasoned CrossFitter looking to reel the diet back in and drop some pounds? Paleo can help!
When: If you are interested in participating, mark your calendars for our Paleo Challenge Kickoff Lecture Tuesday, September 15th at 7pm!
Performance Nutrition Challenge
What: This challenge focuses on using food as fuel to improve your performances in the gym day after day. You often hear “you are what you eat,” but when it comes to setting PRs and consistently performing in the gym… you’re not only what you eat, but how much and when you eat it. This challenge will force you to consider macros and nutrient timing. At the end of the challenge, we hope to see improvements across all benchmarks.
Who: Done a paleo challenge once or twice before and looking for something new? Are you working as hard you can in the gym every day, eating well already, but feeling like you need to go the next step? Or maybe you feel sluggish during workouts with your current diet and can’t figure out what the problem is? This challenge is for you!
When: If you are interested in participating, mark your calendars for our Performance Nutrition Challenge Kickoff Lecture Wednesday, September 16th at 7pm!
