The Whole Life Challenge has arrived to CF Naples!

There have been whispers. There have been rumors. All about a Challenge that will exceed any results we have ever seen. Even better than the Baseline Challenge.  Ladies and gentlemen, I’m here to tell you — they’re all true!

The Whole Life Challenge is here, and it’s bigger and better than before! The WLC started at CrossFit LA a year and a half ago. This time around, though, you’ll be playing with 10,000-20,000 people form affiliates around the world! Your hard work and commitment has made this game possible for thousands of other people!

The Whole Life Challenge is an 8-week health and fitness game that will have you take a 10,000 foot, birds-eye view of your whole life inside of your commitment to your health and well-being. You will take on your nutrition, your workouts, your daily habits, and maybe most importantly, your personal beliefs about what’s possible for you. The game is played online (and for those of you who have played before — we have a brand new site for you!) AND in your life. You will be measured at the beginning of the challenge in a prelims event where you will do a baseline workout and complete some basic body measurements. Everyday you will follow the specific rules and guidelines of the challenge and every day you will log online and give yourself a score for how you did the day before. This isn’t about getting a perfect score every day, it’s about having a score each day to know how effective you are. Increasing your effectiveness over the course of the challenge is where it’s at! After 8-weeks you will repeat the measurements again to see how you improved and who won!

And just as in our last challenge, you are welcome to invite your friends and family to play along with you in the game and have them get the same great results that you get!

Here are the details:

Entry Fee: $45 for everyone–all members, friends, and family.
Prelims: Saturday, September 15th
Finals: Saturday, November 10th

Registration opens August 15th at www.wholelifechallenge.com
Friends & Family may play along with you, but you must be registered first to invite them to join.

Your first step — visit the official Facebook event page and like it! It’s already starting to populate with affiliates and players from around the globe!

This is a great way to represent CF Naples. For more details, click here or talk to a staff member or your coach!

Pale Challenge Day #25

Eating In Season

Fruits and vegetables that are in season will have the most flavor and be more affordable. After all, if something doesn’t taste good (usually when it’s out of season & artificially grown), you’re less likely to eat leftovers or reuse the ingredients.

Here is a handy list of the best spring produce for a frugal budget to get you started, as well as some tips on starting your own spring garden. If you must have items that are not in season, consider purchasing frozen vegetables, as opposed to their canned counterparts, because frozen vegetables retain more nutrients.

Cooking at Home

If you want to avoid eating the same thing for days on end, but also don’t want to spend every night cooking, preparing base meats and veggies a couple of days a week and then portioning out separate meals will save you time in the kitchen. You can add variety by using different spices and flavorings to the base meals.

Prepared Meals

Considering we are past the hunter/gatherer days and we don’t always have time to prepare and cook every meal we eat, purchasing pre-made meals are great when you are in a pinch. Pre-made salads and fresh prepared meals can be modified (remove cheese topping, for example) to meet the Paleo diet standards. Sometimes, pre-made meals such as, grilled veggies with chicken or curried chicken salad, go for around $4 or $5, which isn’t bad for a lunch portion, not bad at all!

Where to Shop / Buying In Bulk

Despite the fact I have never been a fan of bulk shopping, I recently purchased a warehouse club membership and I have to admit: it’s tough to resist the savings! They have great deals on meats and produce by the case, which can be prepared and frozen for future use.
