.12/28/2014 Look Feel Perform Better Challenge Kick-Off and Q&A Meeting, 4pm

A potluck during last year's challenge!

Look Feel Perform Better Challenge Kick-Off and Q&A Meeting

It’s that time of year again... New Year's Resolution time. While we think that it’s best to act in accordance with your goals and values all (or at least most) of the time, we also recognize that many of us use markers like the beginning of the year to kick start positive changes. Some of you have done this in years past, some of you are new to it so here’s the overview.

Who? The entire CrossFit South Brooklyn Community
What? A six-week challenge meant as a collective kick start into healthier nutrition and recovery habits.
Where? Right where you are. You’re encouraged to organize “rest day dinners” either in your homes or out at restaurants with fellow participants and there’ll be LFPB Challenge forums that you can look to for daily support. The key is consistent practice every day.
When? We’ll have a kick-off meeting and Q&A on Sunday December 28 at 4pm that outlines the challenge which will run from Saturday 1/3/2015 through Friday 2/13/2015. We’ll wrap up with a potluck and awards ceremony on Saturday, February 21nd.
Why? To look, feel, and perform better! And, for some sweet prizes!

More information coming soon on the blog, and at this meeting!
