Good luck to Kirstie and Megan!

Just wanted to send out a GOOD LUCK to Kirstie and Megan who have been training their butts off for the "Witch City" Throwdown tomorrow hosted by CrossFit Iron Spider.  The event consists of FOUR WODs for each the male and female teams.  

Things kick off at 8am and will run until 4pm.  If you're headed down to watch, the heats will be on a white board at the gym in the morning.  Sounds like it's going to be a great time!

GOOD LUCK, ladies!

Check out this Paleo Recipe Site!

I know that some of you have been taking part in the Paleo challenge.  I came across this great site that has recipes for every meal of the day, smoothies, snacks and even some amazing deserts (yes, you CAN still eat desert!).  

Whether you are following a Paleo lifestyle or just want to add a few new recipes to your weekly meal plan, take a peek at Paleo Grubs

Speaking of desserts, they have NINE pumpkin pie recipes.  Yes, NINE.  Test one out before Thanksgiving and you'll feel a whole lot less guilty come Black Friday!

The Paleo Challenge starts TODAY!

If you've been around the gym lately (and if you haven't, where are you?!) you've probably heard that the Paleo Challenge starts today!  Here's your chance to learn a whole lot about Paleo and how it can improve your body's function, while entering into a little "friendly" competition with your fellow FC gym-mates.  The Challenge will run now through Thursday, October 30th.  Please note this is a change from the original date found on the paperwork.  You can pick up your Paleo Challenge packet and food log from Mike at the Gym, or print it directly from the files below.  If you grabbed your food log before today, please print out/pick up a new one with the updated dates. 

Never done a Paleo challenge before?  Well, here is what you're in for...

The goal is to eat ONLY foods from that qualify as paleo-friendly for the entire 30 days. In its most simplified form, this includes lean (un-processed) meats, fruits, vegetables(non-starchy), nuts, seeds and most oils.

Each day you will be responsible for keeping a food log.  From that log and your daily activities you will be awarded or have taken away a number of points.  The person with the highest number of points at the end of the 30 days wins "a HUGE prize" from Mike!

If you have questions ask the trainers!  They are here to help.  

Because of the date change the first weekly log will be due tomorrow by the end of the 6:30pm class.  A cubby will be made available under the first aid box to leave the logs.
