45 Day Wellness Challenge

Wellness challenges

Welcome. The Wellness Challenge is a 45-day nutrition, performance and life challenge. It is based on principles of the Paleolithic Diet, modern day life, science, and practical experience. This isn’t just a competition; it’s a springboard for incorporating healthy practices into your life and holding yourself accountable.

During the 45 days of this challenge, you are expected to be “strict” and not stray from the guidelines. This means, no grains, no dairy, no legumes, no sugar, and limited alcohol consumption…Not only do you need to have some self-discipline to carry through on this endeavor, but it is also an exercise in character. Everything is published to the group, and only you will know if you are being honest. In addition to modifying your nutrition, we will expect that you optimize your training, sleep, and recovery to ensure that you are maximizing the impact of this change in all aspects of your life.

Judging the Contest.

All areas below will count for your final score. Qualified Judges (e.g. two Crossfit Caldwell coaches and one outsourced judge) will complete judging.

  1. Before (Day 1) and After (Day 45) photos (Qualitative)
  2. Total Accumulated Points (Quantitative; see below)

Daily Points

  • 1 point for each meal that is Paleo compliant (Max 3 per day)
  • 1 point for training or active recovery (rest days count as long as you work on a skill, take a walk, or Yoga class)
  • 1 point for proper hydration (6+ 8-ounce glass of water)
  • 1 point for proper sleep (7+ hours)

Maximum Points per day = 6

Buy In

There is more motivation from the fear of losing something…bottom-line. The Buy-In is $100 Don’t Freak Out!! You will get $50 of this back “IF” you complete the program (meaning journaling your food, participating all 30 days, and completing both photos). If you drop out completely, your $$ will be forfeited. Our goal with this is to keep all of you in the game from start to finish!

WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO TO ACHIEVE OPTIMAL SUCCESS?

  1. Register, on MindBody.. Even if you don’t plan to attend the info session this is how you sign up. REQUIRED.
  2. Daily: Journal your Food, Training, Hydration, and Sleep. Only use the supplied material. No other entries will be accepted. REQUIRED.
  3. Daily: Darken your bedroom. Do not watch TV, look at your iPhone/iPad, or do anything other than sleep in your bedroom… SUGGESTED.
  4. Weekly: WOD 4+ times/week – journal it using BWTB. You are working on your diet now, but make sure you stay ACTIVE. When you aren’t scheduled to work out go for a walk, take a Yoga class…do something! REQUIRED.
  5. Get some basic blood work done. This is for your own education. Comprehensive Lipid Panel with inflammatory markers. If you haven’t had your annual physical schedule it and get your blood work done. NOTE: We can setup you up with Quest Diagnostics. SUGGESTED.
  6. Take some before & after photos. We will be taking pictures at the gym starting January 2. All pictures will be taken on the same camera (front, side and back photos). Attire is shirtless and shorts for men. Sport Bra and shorts for Women. Try to wear the exact same outfit for your before and after pictures and take them at the same spot in the locker room.
