Paleo Challenge
It’s that time of year again… time for our fall Paleo Challenge! This is an excellent opportunity for you to hit the “reset” button on your diet after a summer full of fun, beers, and BBQs. The goal of the challenge is simple: eat real foods for 6 weeks – no sugar, no dairy, nothing processed. We’ll track your improvements in baseline measurements and in your performance in the gym. If you stick to the challenge, chances are you’ll end up stronger, faster, leaner and more fit!
For full details on the challenge, please join us for our Paleo Challenge Lecture on Tuesday 9/9 at 7pm. If you plan on participating, please take a second to fill out the sign up sheet HERE.

Southie Swag
The Southie store has been completely restocked with all of your favorite gear! Swing by the desk to grab a new tank, pick up one of the “Forged in Boston” t-shirts before they sell out again, or grab a hoodie for the fall weather! Get ’em while you can!
