We have Winners!! Before we announce the winners (which all of our participants are WINNERS with all of the lbs & inches lost and gains in the box this go round) I need to explain some important information about how awesome these people really are and what they really accomplished.
A. Weight loss: if a person during the Paleo challenge loses 5 lbs then they really potentially lose closer to 10 lbs of fat and gained around 5 lbs of muscle.
B. Strength gains: most non-Paleo participants had minimal gains on their CrossFit Total over 30 days and that is normal; however, some of our participants improved 30 lbs or more on their CrossFit total and improved over 1 full round on the metcon workout.
C. Partners: this was our first time having Paleo Challenge Participants work with a partner! We’d like your feedback on how this went for each of you.
We had 2 groups: Body Image Change and Performance Change

These are amazing results for only 30 days of changing they way they eat. Please congratulate all of our winners for a job well done!

We want to say Thank You to everyone that participated in our 2016 Summer Paleo Challenge. There were so many more people who participated that were not mentioned; however, they also had great losses in the weight category and gains in the performance category. Everyone that participated definitely gained overall better health and understanding of the paleo lifestyle and hopefully got closer to reaching their own personal goals of living life to its fullest.
Make sure to continue the lifestyle and also plan to participate in our next Paleo Challenge. You too can take your chance!
