There have been whispers. There have been rumors. Ladies and gentlemen, I’m here to tell you — they’re all true!
CrossFit Zone is hoping on the train with 124 other CrossFit Affiliates to take part in the second annual Whole Life Challenge. The challenge is bigger and better than before! The WLC started at CrossFit LA a year and a half ago and this year there will be 10,000-20,000 people from affiliates around the world taking part!
The Whole Life Challenge is an 8-week health and fitness game that will have you take a 10,000 foot, birds-eye view of your whole life inside of your commitment to your health and well-being. You will take on your nutrition, your workouts, your daily habits, and maybe most importantly, your personal beliefs about what’s possible for you. The game is played online AND in your life. You will be measured at the beginning of the challenge in a prelims event where you will do a baseline workout and complete some basic body measurements. Everyday you will follow the specific rules and guidelines of the challenge and every day you will log online and give yourself a score for how you did the day before. This isn’t about getting a perfect score every day, it’s about having a score each day to know how effective you are. Increasing your effectiveness over the course of the challenge is where it’s at! After 8-weeks you will repeat the measurements again to see how you improved and who won!
And this challenge is not just for the Zone family, you are welcome and encouraged to invite your friends and family to play along with you in the game and have them get the same great results that you get!
