Nutrition Seminar and 6 month Challenge!

At 2:00 this Saturday, July 24th, we are going to offer a Nutrition seminar thatwill then launch a 6 month nutrition challenge to begin August 1st.  We haven't done a Nutrition seminar to this depth before, so we anticipate about 3 hours, with the lecture, practical, and discussions.  The cost of this seminar will be $25 to attend.  We will be tracking bloodwork results during the Challenge, as our benchmarks for change. The bloodwork will include cholesterol/triglyceride markers and insulin/blood sugar markers, and they will be a requirement to participate in the challenge.  We will discuss why and what these numbers mean during the seminar.  I strongly encourage those who are interested in the seminar and the challenge, to get bloodwork drawn and bring the results with you this coming Saturday, to look at when we discuss them.  We will give you the labs you need to obtain when you RSVP for this seminar.

The schedule will include:
Lectures from Mike and Lisa Ray
     1.  What food is, how it affects us internally on a chemical and hormonal level.
     2.  Myths and bad science on current history of nutrition education and why it has caused our current health conditions, today.
     3.  How to change and reclaim balance, healthy, and optimal performance.

Success stories from other CrossFitters who have made huge changes and seen the benefits.

A look at bloodwork profiles and educate you about what the numbers mean and why they matter.  Look inside the "Black Box" (yourself).  This seminar and Challenge will focus on the inside impact of your food, not so much the outside "looks".

Examples and tips on how to easily get started in making a change in your food choices and lead a healthier lifestyle in the midst of a very busy life. 
     1.  Large quantity prep
     2.  Quick, last minute choices
     3.  Travel tips
     4.  What to do when no refrigeration is available
     5.  Kids
     6.  Fast Foods and Restaurants

Group breakouts on meal planning and prep ideas and macro-nutrient composition, with trainer feedback on if they are correct and how to make those meals better/easier.

At this point, we will be offering the launch and registration of a 6 month Nutrition program and Challenge that will hold you very accountable to your choices for 6 months.  Enough time to really make changes that will show real results and could last a lifetime. To continue in the seminar at this point, you will need to make a commitment to this Challenge and to me for the time I will spend with you in helping you make these life changes.  In the months ahead there will be weekly, monthly, and quarterly follow ups to certain markers and tracking systems, such as continuing bloodwork, field trips to the grocery store and several types of restaurants, educating you in how we choose our foods there, how to eat wisely but yet enjoy yourself, and we will have progress checks on your own home meals.  There will be required reading and testing of recipes along the way, as well. Recommendations, systems of eating, and levels of trainer intervention will be given according to your needs, based on your bloodwork and other health markers.

If you choose to not participate in the Challenge, and just want to attend the seminar, that is totally fine, as well.

There will be a charge for the Challenge and if you commit to it, your $25 attendance fee will be included.  I say there is a charge, but if you pass each of your follow-up markers, telling us that you're following the advice and instructions you will be given, you will actually get your money back.  If you do not follow the instructions and pass the markers, you will forfeit that particular segment's cost.  This provides incentive and consequences to hold you accountable and try harder.  Think of it as an investment in your health. By the end of this 6 months, you have the potential of getting all of your money back and the help provided for free.  This is the launch of a new program for us, so this will be the only time it ends up being totally free, if the all challenges are met.  In the future, there will be an additional charge for this extra time and effort on our part.  Consider this an investment in your health.  You get the double return in your money back AND the benefit of reclaimed health, and amazing education, if you put in the effort and learn that it's not that difficult.  It's just a choice about what you put into your mouth and we'll help you make that choice.  Who's in? 

I will need an RSVP before the seminar, please.
