Well,it’s that time of year again where most people begin thinking about the goals they would like to achieve when the new year hits and the slate is wiped clean. In our line of work we know that improving ones health is at the top of many peoples new years resolutions which is why our lead nutrition coach Chelssie Urankar has put a lot of time into creating what will now serve as our annual nutrition challenge.  We are excited to offer you the opportunity to take part in our 12 week nutrition challenge that takes into account the 4 pillars of health the way we see it. Nutrition, exercise, sleep & stress management. We think shutterstock_62795851you all will be excited about it too! Not only will this challenge provide you accountability, you will also gain education around nutrition and be given one on one assistance with the help of Chelssie as your personal nutrition coach. We hope you decide to join along and make this the year you decide to view your health and wellness as a top priority.


Who is the challenge for? 
We realize that everyones goals are different & this challenge can be utilized to match with your goals. For some, they want to gain strength, lose weight, change body composition or learn to utilize nutrition to reduce inflammation and  clean up their everyday eating habits. I believe all of these  goals can be achieved when you partner proper nutrition with proper exercise and receive the proper amount of support. At CrossFit 061, we have the experience and knowledge to offer you all of the above. Chelssie has had great success with the clients she has worked with over the past few years achieve their nutritional goals while Coach Nick is a 2x’s CrossFit Games & Professional GRID Athlete and does an exceptional job with our CrossFit programming.

In this challenge you will be able to earn points by following the nutritional plan provided to you, showing up for work outs, prioritizing sleep & even earn bonus points by drinking proper amounts of water and including meditation as part of your daily routine.

This isn’t a Paleo only challenge as we understand there are performance benefits to eating some of the non paleo food items which is why this challenge will be customized for you, and points will be awarded accordingly.

Each participant will be provided with a macronutrient outline and a list of available food options. For those who wish to follow a strict paleo diet they may do so, while for those who choose to eat a more dense carbohydrate diet or allow dairy into their daily meals they will be provided a list of additional recommended sources to choose from. The way in which you earn, lose & track your points will be discussed in detail at our info meetings which is being held on December 29th @ 6:15pm.
