Quarterly Check-In week wraps up

It's been a busy week in the gym, testing several benchmark workouts including the Baseline. Congrats to everyone who conquered the Baseline this week...as a warm-up to the regular WOD, no less! SO MANY PRs! Be proud of your achievements over the past quarter and be sure to set some goals for the quarter ahead. Before we know it, November will be here, we'll be wrapping up the Whole Life Challenge, and retesting all these workouts again. Good luck with today's CrossFit Total!

Whole Life Challenge registration is open!

Team CFM already has 9 Whole Life Challengers! Dyer, Bri, Brianne, Laura S, Uran, Vabs, Courtney, Jeremy and Lis are in the game. Who else is joining us? Register here.
Courtney is hard at work getting prizes donated, and most of the cash you pay for entry fee also goes into the prize pool! There will be several winners in different categories, so don't let the fear of strict paleo deter you. The prizes for the overall winners will be AWESOME, but there will also be schwag for most improvement on the WLC WOD, most inches lost, most inches gained (for those wishing to bulk up), most accountable, best sponsor/support crew, AND ... there will even be a special division for your coaches - CFM's coaches and Instructor Training Program members will all be competing for prizes and bragging rights in their own division.

So what's holding you back? No, wait, let me guess...
TOP 5 weak-sauce excuses heard recently from WLC haters:
1. I dont keep strict paleo, nor really aspire to.
Well la-di-da. This challenge is not just about strict paleo. It's about creating healthy habits of mobility, exercise, supplements, accountability, AND nutrition.
2. It's football season.
Unless you're following high school, pop warner and the MAC, there is not football seven days a week. So you lose some points on the day your team plays (or maybe you behave and lose points only for the big games)... get your exercise and mobility work in before the tailgate party/game, and get nutrition back on track the next day.
3. I have a wedding/vacation/birthday/bachelor party during the Challenge.
So lose points those days. And get back on track after the big event. This Challenge is about creating new habits IN YOUR LIFE. These events will continue to come up, and if you can get through them and get back on track with nutrition and exercise now, it's good training for when these events come up after the challenge.
4. I'm not going to enter because I never win this type of stuff.
There will be lots of prizes. And if the only prize you win is a sick new body and some healthy new habits, well then, uh... that's cool too, right?
5. I don't need to get lean. I want to get JACKED.
We'll be giving prizes to people who gain muscle and inches as well as those who lose inches.

Mark your calendars:
