The South Mountain CrossFit Wellness Performance Challenge will be kicking off this Friday!  

 Here’s the deal:  the first 30 days of the challenge will be done on teams of 3 or 4.  Teams will be created by the SMCF staff.  Teams will be released on Monday, April 21st.   

Those who are interested in participating will need to sign up at the gym no later than Friday, April 18th.  We will hold weigh-ins at the gym every Friday starting April 18th until May 16th.  All weigh-ins must be completed with a trainer or Dr. Tony or Dr. Trish.  If you are unable to get to the gym on Friday, please weigh in with a trainer on another day. 

Don't worry you don't have to be in your underwear, but you're highly encouraged to make muscles when stepping on the scale.

Each week we will calculate each team’s total percentage of weight loss.  The team with the highest % of weight loss after the final weigh-in will win some seriously AWESOME prizes!!

Then, the second part of the challenge will start.  This portion will consist of an individual competition for an additional 30 days.  The top individuals with the highest % of weight loss at the end of the competition will win fabulous prizes!  Please note:  even if you do not do the team competition, you can still participate in the individual challenge.  Also, if you do the team competition but are not interested in the individual portion, you are not required to participate.

At the start of each challenge we will be doing 2 workouts.  We will retest these same workouts at the end of the 30 day cycle to see if participants see progress in performance.  Another set of WODs will be tested and retested during the individual challenge as well.

This is a great time to focus on nutrition, performance, teamwork, and looking GOOD in a bathing suit! (or naked)  The purpose of the team competition is to set each participant up with a solid support system.  Plus, it gives you someone to text at 3am when you wake up craving a cupcake!

* *Throughout the challenges, SMCF and Dr. Tony Colasurdo will be offering informative sessions on “Paleo” nutrition and will also be offering packages and supplements through The Standard Process specifically designed for CrossFitters and weight loss.  For more information, contact Tony and Trish at 
A few members including Chrissy Hoffman, Gene and Dana Ferretti, and Coach Kacie have done the cleanse and had great results.  Not to mention, they trained the entire time.  Feel free to ask them about their experiences!
