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.

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.
