CrossFit Thermal Fall 2015 Nutrition Challenge

Kick off Meeting Tuesday 9/22 6:30Pm in the main gym – Please be there for challenge details and a brief nutrition talk.

You’ve been coming to Thermal every day and putting in work.  You’ve been dialing in your lifts and hitting PRs.  You’ve crushed met-cons, improved your scales and changed your physique.  We’re proud of the work you’ve done, and now we’re going to ask you to do more.  It’s time to tackle this fall’s “CrossFit Thermal Nutrition Challenge”.

Often times what separates an average athlete from an advanced one are elements that our controlled outside the gym setting.   The most important factors for most of us are stress level, sleep and nutrition.  Believe it or not, all three of these items work hand in hand.   Starting in September, we’ll be hosting a challenge open to all Thermal athletes.  Our plan is to make improvements based on individual goals through a group, goal oriented, coach led nutrition challenge.

What is the Challenge?

The challenge is a 30 day commitment based on solid nutrition and recovery.  We will use a points based system, with several ways to earn points throughout the day.  Each day you will start with 0 points, and you can earn points in the following ways:

8 hours of sleep – 2 points

No refined/processed carbs – 1 point

No sugar (fruit ok) – 2 points

No alcohol – 1 point

What Resources do I Have Available to me?

The CrossFit Thermal coaching staff is always an email away.  Please send us your questions about how to shop, how to prepare meals or how to stay on track.
