You asked for it and you’ve got it, Crossfit Fenway’s first PERFORMANCE BASED PALEO CHALLENGE. Practicing consistent and healthy eating habits is ideal year round, but what better time than now, the beginning of the new year to get started?! Whether you’re looking to improve your performance, lose a few pounds, or just get a better idea of what your crazy coaches and other members do for nutrition, any and all CFF members are invited to participate.
The basics of Paleo nutrition are eat like our hunter-gatherer ancestors used to during caveman times: meats, vegetables, nuts, seeds, some fruit, little to no starch and NO processed sugar. The 30 day challenge will officially start January 23rd, and end on February 20th. There will be prizes for the top finishers based on your performance in 2 workouts, and a point system to keep track of in a daily nutrition log. To be eligible for prizes, participation in the workouts, as well as a $20 dollar buy-in are required. We’re doing the workouts this Saturday, January 14th during the invasions (all may sign up and take part in the invasions as normal, even if you don’t plan on going Paleo). After both sessions, at 1:30 PM, we’ll be having a discussion with a more detailed explanation of Paleo nutrition, and answering any questions about this performance based challenge, including how to score your points and what to eat/not eat.
Here’s a website to give you an idea of what you’re in for if you choose to participate!
Please e-mail Erika if you’re in, or if you have any questions. If you’re on the fence, show up Saturday and we’ll have a sign up sheet available. See you then!
