Sunday August 24, 2014
Monday September 1, Labor Day will see an abridged schedule. Schedule will be 8:00, 9:00, 10:00 and 11:00am sessions.
Our in-house Paleo Challenge in September is shaping up. The challenge begins Tuesday September 2 and it will be run much like our very first Paleo Challenge in August 2012. We had tremendous success with that program and want to bring it back. There is a $50 Buy in which will stay 100% in house. First, second and third place in both genders will receive prizes which will be determined based on registration. In our first challenge we awarded to the First place winners A pair of Nanos, a custom Rx jump rope, and cash, second place got a jump rope and cash and third place got cash. The scoring is based on numerous categories. Daily attendance, Fat percentage change, Workout improvement from Day 1 to day 30. This is a much better program than the online programs we have done in the past as we are paying into our own coffers and we are competing only amongst ourselves and not a much larger global community. We have scheduled a nutrition discussion for Wednesday August 27 at 6:30pm to go over details of the challenge, take measurements and photos, and discuss proper nutrition for the challenge. The WOD has been decided and the rule book is available here, https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwvD_eBQgaENS0ZhWTZISHVlamc/edit?usp=sharing Also we will be using an App, Paleo Challenge to track nutrition results. To download the app click here for IPhone, https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/paleo-challenge-nutrition/id887296305?mt=8, and here for Android, https://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=Paleo+Challenge&hl=en. Once purchased, find “CFB September 2014 Chalenge.” If you plan to participate start thinking about easing yourself into the program starting tomorrow. Start weening yourself off of your bad eating habits so on Day 1 it won’t be as hard nor will you have bad crashes, i.e., lethargy/fatigue and headaches. We will be following the “primal” programming as it is a little more forgiving than “pure.”
In concert with the Paleo Challenge, We have worked with KitchFix to deliver paleo meals to us at the Box. I have placed an order for Tuesday delivery to test the process and get the delivery service familiar with our location. The delivery fee is $10 per order, so it is in all of our best interests to place 1 large weekly order to cut the delivery costs. To view menu and prices, click here. http://www.kitchfix.com/this-week-menu.html.
We are also working to get an ice box in the Box where we will provide grass fed beef and pasture chicken from Natures Pasture. Natures Pasture is a local company owned by the parent’s of CFB member Terri McCabe and we are very excited to partner with them. They also make the best beef jerky I have ever had. More details to come, but we hope to have this available by the paleo challenge.
In the meantime, Honored Prairie will be stopping by next Saturday. If you would like to place an order, the order must be placed by tomorrow, Monday August 25. They have fantastic eggs, bacon and some pretty unique and outstanding sausages along with their grass fed beef. to view products, click here, http://sevensons.net/howtobuy/preorder_pickup. If you are not familiar, we have been partners with Seven Sons since we opened in 2012. Horse Thief Hollow gets their beef and pork from Seven Sons, and the Paleo Burger at HTH was inspired by us.
We will be starting our September On-Ramp, Monday September 8 at 6:45pm. Refer a friend to sign up and get 20% of your next month membership dues.
For those participating in Barbell Club, Jack will be with us Wednesday evenings ONLY through the football season. He coaches a youth league and weekends are game day. We have discussed, come November, a Tuesday/Thursday program. I will keep you posted on Jack and his availability.
Athletes, please, please, please, wipe down your gear after a workout, especially the barbells. This photo shows a clean bar and 2 chalk covered bars. Believe it or not the middle and top bars are actually black under all that chalk. Chalk is a moisture absorber; when chalk is left on steel, the humidity from the air and moisture from your hands is pulled into the steel this resulting in rusty bars. We can’t maintain every bar after every class. We provide the tools, i.e alcohol wipes, to clean the barbells. Based on your chalk usage this may require a little elbow grease to get chalk off. Please assist us in keeping the gear in good working order.
