Derek & Tara
Derek & Tara

Derek & Tara are what we consider a “power couple” – They’ve been here for quite some time now, push themselves each day and always make class more enjoyable (as evident by their sweet Halloween costumes). Derek can be found in the 7pm class and also frequents the Oly Classes. Tara is super determined and her smile is contagious to those around her. Introduce yourself if you see them, they.are.awesome!

Want in? Here’s how the program works:
1. Sign up to participate in the 21 Day No Sugar Challenge or the 21 day Paleo Challenge here.
2. Prep your home by eliminating any foods that might cause you to deviate from your three week plan. Stock your cabinets and refrigerator with plenty of healthy snacks and foods. Be sure to read labels to look for those sneaky terms disguising SUGAR.
3. Mentally prepare. Have a plan (Prepare your meals beforehand, have only healthy snacks around, use a meal service at the gym, etc..). Have a backup plan. . Can’t stress enough how important it is to have a plan to successfully complete the 21 days.
