Whole Life Challenge registration opens Wednesday!

The Whole Life Challenge is an 8-week health and fitness challenge designed to turn you into a lean, mean master of your physical and mental destiny! The WLC started at CrossFit Los Angeles a year and a half ago, but this time, CFMers will be playing along with thousands of other CrossFitters around the world!

Entry Fee: $45 for everyone–all members, friends, and family.
Prelims: Saturday, September 15th
Finals: Saturday, November 10th
Registration: You can register online at http://www.wholelifechallenge.com starting TOMORROW!
Friends & Family may play along with you, but you must be registered first to invite them to join.

The challenge winner will succeed in 3 areas:
Performance – Improve your work, improve your play
Body Transformation– Get lean & mean
Accountability – Play every day!

How to play:
You’ll be measured in the beginning and the end of the challenge to track your improvement – body and performance.
Every day you will be challenged to live by these rules, and earn up to 6 points daily:
Nutrition – No grains or starches (including corn and soy), no sugar (artificial or natural), no alcohol, soda or juice, no legumes, no dairy and no artificial or processed foods. You can earn up to 3 points maximum for each day of nutrition. Violate one of your rules and subtract 1 point. The lowest score you can get on any day is 0.
Workout – Every day. The rule is 10 minutes minimum, and you get to say if it was a workout for you. Active recovery (yoga, hiking, recovery ride, run or row) counts. You will receive 1 point for working out.
Mobilization – Stretch daily, 10 minutes minimum. You can do this any way you want. You will receive 1 point for stretching/mobilizing.
Fish oil – A daily dose of fish oil. There is no minimum, but research suggests 4000mg combination of EPA/DHA per day.

Every day by 3pm you’ll log into the scoreboard and report how you did the previous day. You have until 3pm each day; after that you receive a 0 for the prior day, so set an alarm, leave yourself a post-it… whatever you have to do to make it a habit!

All participants in the challenge receive:
+ Access to the Whole Life Challenge WORLDWIDE online scoreboard
+ A “Pre-Game Huddle” seminar – Want to give yourself the best shot? Come to a 1-hour meet-up to cover the basics of setting yourself up: preparing your home and kitchen, shopping and preparing food, and other success strategies
