Nutrition Challenge Winners
Drumroll please… we finally have our Nutrition Challenge winners! For the first time, we offered two different versions of our nutrition challenge: the classic Paleo Challenge, and a Performance Nutrition Challenge. Though different in their rules, both focused on treating food as fuel and fueling our bodies properly for workouts. As you can see, both versions of the challenges yielded great results!
Choosing winners is always tough. It’s not all about weight loss – it’s a combination of total points, improvements in benchmarks, and improvements in measurements/weight loss. Everyone who participated in these challenges did a great job over the course of six weeks and we are so proud of everyone. These two stood out above the rest, and their results speak for themselves! Check out their amazing transformations, and be sure to congratulate them next time you see them in the box!
Paleo Challenge Winner: Nick Alonso
Total Points: 829
Weight: – 12.8 pounds (6.8%)
Fran: -13 seconds
1 Mile Run: -26 seconds
Christine: -5 seconds
Performance Challenge Winner: Kady Chochrek
Total Points: 1035
Weight: -15 pounds (8.2%)
1 Mile Run: -34 seconds
Christine: -37 seconds
In addition to crushing the challenge and seeing some great physical results, both Nick and Kady entered their first CrossFit competition, and competed in the Southie Showdown! It was great to see them out there on the competition floor all weekend long and to see how the changes they made during the six week challenge greatly improved their performance over the weekend. For example, when the challenge started, Kady could only do a handful of unassisted pull ups, and zero chest to bar pull ups. During the Showdown, she completed all 30 unassisted pull ups in “Patilac” AND did some chest to bar pull ups during “What’s Your Gameplan?”!
Do these results inspire you? Us too! We’ll be hosting another nutrition challenge in the new year. This will be the perfect way to get back on track after the long holiday season. Get excited to participate!
