It's that time again! Time to pony up, get some skin in the game, and see what you can accomplish when you're playing for something a little extra. Here are the details:
The CF818 Six Weeks To Summer Challenge starts Friday April 20th and ends Saturday June 2nd, exactly 6 weeks later. This challenge is a combination of our previous Paleo challenge and our old workout challenges in that it will be both about nutrition and performance. Just like the Paleo challenge, we'll be taking before and after pictures (before pictures must be taken after Friday 4/20 and after pictures must by taken by Sunday 5/27). Also, we'll be having weekly meetings for the Paleo Posse to help keep all of ya accountable to and supported by the group.
In conjunction with the Paleo portion of this challenge, we'll also be doing a workout to measure performance as well. The workout for this challenge is "Helen" (3 rounds for time of 400m run, 21 kettlebell swings, 12 pull ups). We'll be getting a baseline for the workout on Friday April 20th (if you can't make it to class on that day, don't worry as you'll be able to make up the Helen baseline at other times). Then, 6 weeks later we'll retest Helen and see who improves the most.
As far as winners go, here are the ways you can win:
The Six Weeks to Summer Challenge costs $60. Why? Well, first off, you're basically putting in a wager on yourself that you'll win. Second, having skin in the game adds in that much more accountability because you suddenly have something very tangible to lose. Most importantly, we're in the process of setting up some really sweet prizes for the winners including cash and gear from a few of our (and your) favorite companies.
What do you get for participating? Context to your training, a chance to push yourself even harder than you usually do because summer is coming up and you wanna look hot on the beach, and the added accountability of being a part of a group challenge. As an added bonus, everyone who participates in the challenge will get an extra class every week for the duration of the challenge. That way, not only are you dialing in your nutrition, you'll be getting even more CrossFit goodness to push yourself to the next level!
