Winner winner. Paleo dinner!
Lincoln crushes the Stop the Slop WOD rematch:
The Nutrition Challenge winner is Amy N. with 5.31% change in bodyweight over the course of the challenge. This was close as several were right over the 5% change mark. Two people who weighed in within a few days after the final deadline (Tuesday 2/9) continued to see weight loss and ended with higher percentages but as it was beyond the deadline it couldn’t factor in.
The Performance Challenge winner is Lincoln with a whopping 28.19% time improvement in the “Clean and Jerk Baseline” WOD. When he did this workout at the beginning of the challenge he was close to pukie. He crushed the rematch.
The 30 Day Nutrition Essay Challenge winner was a tough choice. We had a few essays that were submitted that were just incredibly well written, heartfelt, and amazing for us as coaches to read. The essays were to focus on the individuals experience over the 30 days either attempting the Whole30 challenge or a cleaner diet, the performance challenge, or both. After a vote the winner of the Essay Challenge is Lorraine.

High fives and chest bumps to everyone who participated, even if you didn’t finish. Michelle and I completed a Whole30 and both of us dialed it back in, noticed improvements, and lost weight. We have also resolved to keep to a stricter lifestyle to maintain our improvements. If you were on the fence about participating then next challenge jump right in. For anyone who thought “why?” ask yourself “why not?”. What do you have to lose by setting positive goals to eat healthier and workout harder? (Besides weight and bad habits) Many started a Whole30 and a few finished it through. A bunch of you PR’d your re-test on the workout. Several of you have already introduced healthy eating habits that are likely to stick. That is what it’s all about. While it’s cool to lift heavy stuff and fly around during a workout, the real purpose for all the exercise that we do is to be healthier and fitter. For life. So live it and seize the day. Next time get off the damn fence.
