Winter Nutrition Challenge!
Have the holidays left you feeling a little.. blah? Or maybe you’re just looking to dial in your nutrition before the Open starts? Whatever your reasoning may be, we can all benefit from taking a closer look at our nutrition and making some positive adjustments. What better way to get back on track than with the support of your friends? Time after time, we see huge improvements and drastic changes over the course of our six-week Nutrition challenge. There’s no reason that can’t be you! With some hard work and commitment, the possibilities are endless.

So what is the Nutrition Challenge exactly? For six weeks, your goal is to consume only meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. You’ll be required to track your daily food intake, and will lose points for deviating from the diet. Before the challenge starts, we’ll take baseline measurements (weight, waist, hips) and complete a few benchmark workouts. At the end of the six weeks, we’ll retest and hopefully see some great results!

This challenge will have new rules, a new scoring system, and a new emphasis on eating to PERFORM. It will be great for seasoned CrossFitters who have previous experience with Paleo Challenges and for new

If you’re interested in the Nutrition Challenge or just want to learn more about the Paleo and eating to perform, please join us for a discussion on Wednesday, January 20th at 7pm. Save the date, we hope to see you there!

    4+25 with red band for PU and red+purp for CTB. I’m in an odd spot that its a little too much assistance, but just red is tough w/ CTB.

    4+20 then I DNFed cause I ripped my hand. I’m looking for a new pair of grips does anyone have one they really like? The best I’ve used is the rogue gymnastic grips, The plastic clip always digs into my wrist but at least I don’t rip with them. I’ve tried a few others since them and haven’t liked them.

    • Brian M. Maser 01/13/2016 at 9:49 am

      I wear wrist wraps under my gymnastics wraps to prevent the clip from digging into my wrist. I used to experience the same issue with the clip before I started wearing the wrist wrap. No issues since…

      • Morgan 01/13/2016 at 10:47 am

        That’s a good idea. Mooch said JAW grips are good and they don’t have that plastic clip. I am going to try those – will report back!

        • melstec 01/13/2016 at 11:29 am

          I have JAW grips, my first pair lasted about 8 months. I ordered another pair and I’ve had these since October & no signs of wearing through yet. I would assume that’s normal shelf life, but maybe I have an aggressive grip haha.

          I love them – they’re so much more comfortable than the rogue clips (I used those way back and they hurt!! I also didn’t like the feeling of so much material under my hand).

    • Eddy 01/13/2016 at 9:53 am

      I liked my Natural Grips (Shark Tank!). I got them at ECC last year. Only drawback is that you have to tape them on and, eventually, they wear out too. Overall, worth the money for them to me, but I haven’t been using them much lately.

      • Morgan 01/13/2016 at 10:48 am

        I had a pair – they worked pretty well but I got really annoyed with having to tape them on all the time and when they broke I didn’t get a new pair.
