We are a community united in our goal of becoming the best versions of ourselves. We work hard in the gym. We support one another in workouts. Health and fitness incorporates much more than our workouts, however. Our overall health is heavily impacted by how much and how well we eat and drink; the quality and amount of our sleep; how we manage stress and the ways in which we take care of ourselves. The Whole LIfe Challenge is my favorite lifestyle challenge because it addresses ALL of those factors.
Every year, the larger body of CrossFit holds a 5 week test of fitness known as the CrossFit Open. Traditionally, Catacombs participates by holding our own version known as the Catacombs Games. We are less interested in the competition aspect but we are super stoked on the community aspect! If measuring your fitness against the rest of the CrossFitting world is your thing, no problem! We will 1000% support you in that endeavor. But if you are more interested in meeting some new friends or if having fun with your swolemates is your priority, there is no better place to be in October than Catacombs.
Lately I’ve been thinking about how we have a tendency to get buried in the details or the minutiae of things and completely miss the big picture. This happens generally in life but it happens A LOT in the fitness and nutrition space. There are so many angles and shortcuts and programs and plans, but the reality is that none of those things matter if we don’t get the foundation right. And the foundation is much simpler than you think.
