And we’re BACK. The CFRte1 Best Body Challenge Fall ’14 is coming right at you, with some bonus features to supplement the format we used back in June. Here’s the scoop:
- Challenge starts with a group kick-off meeting at 9am on Sunday, September 14th. This will be a mandatoryinformational meeting, during which time you will have your benchmark measurements recorded, participate in a group goal setting session, and start the Challenge off right with an Endurance Seminar WOD from 10-11am*.
- Like June’s Challenge, you will receive points for:
o Each check-in meeting you attend with me
o Every pound of fat lost
o Every pound of muscle gained
The Male and Female winners will each receive a free month membership at CFRte1.
When you sign up for the Challenge, you will sign up as either an AM or PM team member, based upon the class times that you attend most regularly. This becomes important because…
The Challenge will culminate on Saturday, October 18th… at our CFRte1 AM vs PM IN-HOUSE COMPETITION!!!
o Open to all athletes: Rx, Scaled, Masters. There are no individuals, partnerships, etc… this is a WHOLE team event.
o The Best Body Challenge AM/PM designation will carry over into the Competition: whichever group (AM or PM) gained the most pounds of muscle over the course of the Challenge will receive an advantage going into the Competition!
The Challenge will include your 1v1 check-ins, Endurance WODs (on 9/14, 9/28 and 10/12).
o We will be participating as a GROUP at the CF Portsmouth LumberJack 20 competition on September 20th. This year, the proceeds go to the PR for Pat Foundation, which is awesome.
o CF Portsmouth has offered us a group registration discount. There are Rx and Scaled divisions. Check it out at http://crossfitportsmouth.com/event/lumberjack-20-2014/. We will help you register once you sign up for the Challenge
. No in-person/text/FB messenger registration. Cost will be $45, cash, paid at the kick-off meeting on 9/14.
We can’t wait to see you all crush this again!
PS… as a reminder, this Challenge is about feeling good and performing at your best. To that end, we are working towards improving body composition, not “losing weight”. For some of you, your goal will be to lose fat pounds, while maintaining lean mass (ie muscle). For others, your goal may be to maintain a particular (healthy) body fat percentage, but gain lean mass. In any event, these goals will be achieved with incremental yet long-term lifestyle and nutrition changes.
*For those of you who would prefer not to participate in the Challenge, the Endurance Seminar WODs are open to everyone, however there is a $10 drop-in fee for Unlimited members, and $20 for Limited memberships. These seminars will be ongoing upon the completion of the Challenge.
