I have participated in the Whole Life Challenge more times than I can count. To be honest, they have not all be overwhelming successes. Still, I have learned and grown from each and every one of them. There are many things I love about the Whole Life Challenge (and a few I don’t love) but I’d like to share the reasons why I am once again taking this on. Maybe some of my reasons will resonate with where you are.
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.
It is with great pleasure that I introduce you to Coach Linda. Linda was born and raised in Durango, but has been living in Albuquerque for the last 3 years and coaching at CrossFit Albuquerque. Her husband, Cody, and 6 year old son, Titus, just relocated back to Durango to be nearer to family and enjoy the community that they have always called home. We are excited to welcome Linda to our coaching staff as she brings a breadth and depth of experience that will allow us to better serve you, our athlete community.
At Catacombs, we know that health and fitness is about so much more than the work we do in the gym. Each month, we explore an area of nutrition to bring attention to how best to maximize our work in the gym rather than sabotage it. Coach Suz has proclaimed that this month our focus is alcohol. This may well be the least popular blog post I’ve ever written, but my goal is simply to provide information. Once you have the information, you can make your own choices about how alcohol fits into your health and fitness goals. Stay tuned all month for facts and insight into the impacts of consuming alcohol.
