Coming in 2013

We’ve got lots of awesome new stuff in store for 2013, starting with Eat-Clean January and Food as Fuel on Jan 5th. We’ll be adding additional classes to the schedule with more yoga time slots, a rowing class with Uran, and a regular gymnastics class! We’ll also offer regular Beginners classes, for everyone to work on CrossFit Fundamentals. Walter will be hosting a self-defense seminar in early 2013. We’re also bringing in an Olympic Lifting workshop AND a field trip to Decatur’s Atlanta Gymnastics Center for some tumbling fun! And of course regular social events and Hooverball Sundays will continue. See you next year!!!

Who’s in for Eat-Clean January?

For the month of January, several of us at CFM are vowing to stick to a strict paleo diet. No grains, dairy, legumes, sugar, booze, etc… we’re embarking on a Whole 30 to detox from all this holiday eating! Get ready for our January Whole 30! We’ll host awesome events like a free Food as Fuel event on Sat, Jan 5th to discuss your challenges/questions after the first few days, a paleo potluck and a paleo meal swap… as well as a Facebook “support group” to share recipes & tips and regular deliveries to the box from Tink’s Grass Fed Beef (& pastured pork) & Urban pL8 (paleo meal delivery)! AND Brianne agreed to plan some good, clean Sunday outings throughout the month… maybe some hiking, rock climbing, shooting range, trampoline fun ??? (not all at once)
So far, Lis, Bri, Brianne, Fred, Tirzah, Josh H and DLP have thrown our hats in the ring. Who else wants in?
Wanna play? Join the Facebook group. Come to Food as Fuel. Kick 2013 off right. Watch the blog for updates, nutrition tips, recipes and events.
