SCHEDULE CHANGES GOING FORWARD

SOUTH LOCATION – the 9:30 am class will now be held at 9 am / the 12:30 pm class will now be at 12:00 pm, still M, Tu, & Th / Coach Joe will be doing Strength classes on Thursdays. So Thursdays will look like this; the 4:15 pm time will be a strength only class, the 5:15 pm time will be both Strength and CrossFit, and 6:15 pm time will be CrossFit only.
We have the opportunity to have a double under seminar by world champion Molly Meltz on Jan 17th. She is willing to come from Colorado, but I need to know ASAP if there is enough interest to bring her here. The cost would be $45 for the seminar and this is directed at members/athletes not just coaches. Please let Paul know by Monday night if you would be interested so we can get it lined up.
2014 Nutrition challenge details can be found HERE. Read through this document carefully so you know what we are doing. The basics are you are eating clean. There will be an opportunity once you’ve been clean for 30 days to start introducing some items back into you meal plan, but only with some discussion and understanding. Start logging what you eat MONDAY and once you sign up (available Tuesday) we will get you your log sheets that you can use and share with the coaches so we can better help you succeed.
Here are the dates and times that pictures and measurements will be taken (Stacey is handling this exclusively and only at these times and locations).
Tuesday – 5 & 6, 10 am 5 pm North Gym

WHEww…. WE are through Cold War and I am SUPER proud that WE ALL pulled it off. I’m humbled every time we do an event at the incredible people we have in our community. Even those who volunteered and competed for the first time as part of our IoTA Family came through with flying colors!! I am blessed to call you each friends and appreciate all you do to help lift each other up. It was so incredible to watch all of our athletes perform at their best and represent us so well too…. but I digress, more on that later this week once things have settled in.
It’s time to get our 2014 nutrition challenge started!! Stacey has been doing a TON of great planning and work on this and we will roll everything out this week so stay up to date with what is happening and we will be throwing a TON of information at you. Let’s start with some basic information that you’re going to need.
If you’re just getting your feet wet with the Paleo diet…Then you’ve got a lot of reading to do! Takes some time and become familiar with the Paleo diet. We will then talk about it and answer any questions you may have at the nutrition meeting on Saturday Jan 11th at 9am at the North Gym.

Mostly scientific and fitness mumbo jumbo – the good stuff:
The yummy, yummy in your tummy stuff: (not all specifically paleo, some are just gluten-free)
