September 17 marks the beginning of the next Whole Life Challenge. Some of us will be a part of it. CrossFit Catacombs has setup a team and we welcome as many of you as are willing to join us. But we will not twist your arm or guilt you into participation. You see, over the years, I have come to believe that nutrition is THE most powerful weapon we have in the arsenal of health. I also know without a doubt that you have to be ready for change or it is a waste of everyone's time. We stand ready to support each and every one of you through this nutrition and lifestyle challenge. If you are ready, we are pumped to be your partner through it. If this is not your time, don't worry. Your time will come. We won't judge you or question your commitment. We are still really glad you are here.
If you've never heard of the Whole LIfe Challenge, it is 8 weeks of focus on nutrition, sleep, stretching, exercise, stress management and a whole host of other lifestyle factors. The power comes in accountability to our team and the encouragement and support that our community provides through this forum. It basically works like a game where you get points every day for achieving certain criteria. You choose your level of buy-in and there is a leaderboard to see how you stack up with the rest of the team. It requires daily interaction and commitment on multiple fronts. The competition is only within yourself, but the rewards of embracing this challenge and crushing it are life changing. I like this format because it creates a great environment to support one another and there is a level that works for everyone. It is not a one size fits all program and the resources they provide to help you succeed are unmatched. The cost is nominal and you get much more support than you would if you were relying solely on our coaching staff. These guys are pros.
I'd love to talk with you more about the details of this and whether or not it is right for you. You owe it to yourself to at least understand what the options are. We can customize any of the available options for where you are on the nutrition and lifestyle journey. I promised that I wouldn't twist anyone's arm, but I will promise you that our next post is on nutrition. If it isn't on your radar, it should be.
If you know you are ready and want to register, sign up through the Whole Life Challenge website. Make sure you sign up for the CrossFit Catacombs team. That allows us to have a closed online community where we are helping each other rather than dealing with the thousands of others participating at the same time. The cost for sign up with the Whole Life Challenge in early registration is $39. If you have participated previously, that drops to $29. After August 31, the price goes up to $49. There is no additional fee to CrossFit Catacombs. We just want as many of you as possible to join us.
There will be much more information on this in the coming days and weeks. In the meantime, let us know if we can answer any questions for you.
