HG3 2014 Paleo Challenge


It's that time of year again when we all need to tighten our nutrition to move forward and make some big gains this year! 

Now with Christmas and New Year behind us, it is time to re-focus, ready to start the 2014 Paleo Challenge on the 1st February. It is a 28 day challenge, running the whole of the month, ending on the 28th.

This year’s challenge will run in a similar way to last, but offering more support and information on a weekly basis.

The aim of the challenge is to change the way you eat, think about food and reset the body so that you can continue to eat clean and healthily all year round. It will then be over to you to fine tune the inclusion of certain foods and assess how you feel with them. We will also provide "after the challenge” information, enabling you to make informed choices about your nutrition. By doing the challenge, creating good or even different eating habits (of which we will focus on later) it will highlight how your body really can feel and perform. 

As athletes we really want to see how eating clean affects performance, and as last year there will be a benchmarking WoD at the start and end of the challenge to see how your performance has improved. 

There is a £5 entry fee and all proceeds will be going to the prize for the winners. We shall once again be judging the challenge on the following -

Body fat % lost
CM Lost - chest, triceps, waist and thigh
Visceral fat lost

Each category will be scored in points and the person with the highest points at the end will be crowned HG3 Paleo Perfect Champ. We shall have a male and female category and a prize for each! The more people that enter, the bigger the prize. 

We want to make sure that everyone has the most information possible so we are arranging talks from special guests before the challenge starts. We shall keep you informed of who and when.

If you have not yet joined the Facebook group then please do. This is a rolling forum that is updated all year by everyone at the gym. It is a fantastic resource for recipes, motivation and information. 

After the challenge, and to celebrate everyones hard work we will be organising a "Turkish Baths and refreshments’ day (the sauna at HG3 can only accommodate 3), again more information in the coming weeks.

That’s it for now guys so please book on to team up and get focused for an amazing month!! 

          Team HG3.
