CrossFit | Paleo Diet Challenge – Before and After pictures

This is what 29 days of Unit 2 CrossFit and proper diet can do!

Congratulations to everyone that did the CrossFit Paleo Challenge and stuck to the meal plan and workouts for the entire 30-day challenge.  You guys are awesome!  Seeing all of the change in everyone over the past month was amazing to say the least.  Everyone worked very hard and the results showed!  Selecting the winners was exceptionally difficult because of how incredibly everyone did.  The difference between 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in most categories was minute.

This is what 29 days of Unit 2 CrossFit and proper diet can do!

Comments – I think that the Paleo challenge was incredible, and not just because I was one of the winners. For most of my adult life I’ve always set goals of getting “ripped” or “lean” but could never achieve the results that I wanted.  I’m a notorious snacker plus chips, cookies, candy, and alcohol were my best friends. My logic was that if I did enough cardio then it would all balance out in my favor. Well, I’d usually make it within 5-10 pounds of where I wanted to be but then slack off for one reason or another.

This Paleo challenge was the difference maker. My competitive spirit drove me to see it throughout the 30 day period without any setbacks. Seeing all of my fellow Crossfit members slimming down, doing two-a-days, and talk about their results created a very energetic and positive atmosphere at the gym. All of the encouraging comments from the trainers helped too. I’d be wrong if I didn’t mention how good the RSB pre-made paleo meals are. I’m still sticking with those even after the challenge is over. Now that the challenge is over, not only can I see the difference in my before and after pictures, but I can feel it too. My energy level is higher. I perform better in the crossfit and kickboxing classes. And most importantly, I know that I’m healthier. High blood pressure and diabetes run in my family so living a healthy lifestyle is #1 in my book. Now I feel empowered to take on the next challenge; sprint triathlon!
