The time is here folks-STARTING MONDAY we will be starting our next Paleo Challenge. You will never get to where you want to be in the gym or where you never thought possible without first getting this squared away in the kitchen. 
 
Lets get one thing straight right off the bat… This is not all about weight loss! The transition to a healthy Paleo lifestyle (it’s not a diet) can and will help improve everything from your skin, sleep, mood to your training performance and ultimately body composition. 
 
So for the next 30 days you will fight temptation and old habits and by the end of this I hope you will find as I and many others have that you don’t “NEED” those things in your life any longer. Those of you on the fence and not convinced “it’s for you” I challenge you to step out of your comfort zone and look at this as an experiment for the next month. You will never know until you try.
 
—–>What is Paleo?? READ THE NUTRITION SECTION OF OUR WEBSITE!!
Paleo = Meat, Fish, Eggs, Veggies, Nuts/Seeds, & Fruit
NOT Paleo = Grains, rices, breads, pastas, beans, soy, sugar,  dairy, all PROCESSED/ refined food.
 
There are a number of areas this challenge will cover.  Winners will be chosen based on an all around improvement in their baseline workout, photos, measurements, daily points and personal goal accomplishments.
 
There will be a $20 buy in. 1 male and 1 female at the end of the 30 days will be named winners and split the pot.
 
***IF YOU CANNOT MAKE IT IN MONDAY DON’T FREAK OUT YOU CAN STILL GET IN ON THE CHALLENGE.    I want EVERYONE to be a part of this. No excuses.
 
1) Photos, take at home this weekend to see visible progress changes
 
2) Body Measurements… , chest, waist, hips, thigh, arms.   These need to be done before you workout so whatever class you are coming to please try and get in early enough for the coach to take your measurements.
