Congratulations to all the participants in the Whole Life Challenge. We are really proud of all of you that participated. Your results are amazing and show what a little hard work can produce. We had a bunch of you loose 20# or more and even our “skinny” participants with less weight to loose lost inches. Weight is just a number and body composition and how we feel is more important then anything and the results in these categories were amazing. Share your personal experience below for all to read in the comments section.
I think we all take away something different and personal from participating in a challenge like this. Some the extra challenges made us look at some of the other things also, like are we drinking enough water or getting enough sleep. I know for me the water was challenge was hard. I would forget about it during stretches of the day then have to pound water just to catch up. It makes you realize how much time you spend dehydrated.
Some of the challenges that people shared with me at the beginning where what to eat or what to snack on or that they were always hungry. As the challenge went on I started to hear more about what you were cooking and how you enjoyed you food. People also told me about how they had more energy and felt better.
Here are the final results:
Share your personal experience below for all to read in the comments section. I encourage you all to stick with it (maybe just relax a little) and continue your healthy lifestyle. Use what you learned to make permanent changes in your diet and lifestyle.
If you didn’t join the challenge talk to those that did or one of the coaches. Make your own personal challenge and reap the rewards of a healthy lifestyle. You can challenge your friends, family or other members. Make a group on facebook to interact with each other during your challenge Let us know if you need help or advice.
I know at least one person had trouble entering their time for last weeks challenge and they email me their score.

Its not too late to participate, if you do last weeks challenge this week you can earn 3 points, but dont forget to participate in this weeks challenge also.

First off I am really proud of everyone that participated in the CrossFit Games Open Sectionals this year. Especially those of you that are beginners or knew you wouldn’t do very good. You did better then everyone that quit or didn’t have the guts to try. It was alot of fun cheering you all on and watching you try to learn new skills really quick. One good thing about forcing yourself to try these workouts as Rx’d is that it highlights what you need to work on.
Now we get to start anew! For any of you who are serious about competing now is the time to start your training for next year. The first thing you need to do is build a good plan and create/select your training program. Then its time to get serious about your training, and that includes your nutrition and sleep.
We are here to help you! Set a side some time to talk to one of the coaches over the next few weeks to build your plan.

A little about CrossFit
CrossFit is a fun and exciting workout class where everydoes the Workout of the Day or as we call the WOD. It is always different but its always hard, if its not you wont get results. We can “scale” or modify the workout to fit your fitness level and strength. That can include changing the movment, lowering the weight or reduceing the range of motion you perform in the begining. As you get stronger and more flexible you will be a ble to do the workout as persciribed or “rx’d”.
The group classes are one hour long and start on the hour. They all follow this general format - The first 15-25 minutes is dedicated to warm up and instructional period. A trainer will give instruction on how to perform the movements and help everyone get set for the workout. That will include figuring out how to scale the workout if needed and selecting the weight. Then we start the WOD with 3-2-1- go! Everyone does the WOD and pushes themselves as hard as they personally can, resting when needed. We all encourage each other throughout the workout. The WOD usually takes around 20 minutes but it may be longer or shorter depending on the day. After the WOD we stretch and cool down. Trainers will give you instruction throughout the WOD and feedback after you finish.
