Sunday, February 1 at 11:00 am (well in advance of the Superbowl!), we will be holding a Goal Setting and Nutrition Lecture session! This session will be the kick-off a four-week Nutrition Challenge throughout the month of February.
Attendance for the Goal Setting portion is FREE
The Goal Setting portion of the session is independent of the Nutrition Challenge but will allow us to state short-, medium-, and long-term goals for ourselves for this new year. Once our goals have been identified, participants will give each of their goals a concrete, actionable plan which they will execute in pursuit of their future achievements. For our purposes (and staying within the year of 2015), goal terms will be defined as such:
- short-term goals: 1-3 months
- medium-term goals: 3-9 months
- long-term goals: 9-12+ months
Goals can but don’t necessarily need to relate to fitness, nutrition, etc. but can also relate to happiness, health, satisfaction, etc….basically anything you like! Everything will be entirely up to you as an individual since they are YOUR goals and YOUR plan. We are simply here as a collective to help each other see them through. So, begin thinking about what you want out of yourself in 2015 (for goals in ALL three terms) and come ready to construct a plan for yourself at our Goal Setting session!
Attendance for the Nutrition Lecture portion is FREE
Following the Goal Setting portion of the session, a Nutrition Lecture will be provided to kick off the four-week Nutrition Challenge (which will begin AFTER your Superbowl festivities that night, obviously). This Nutrition Lecture will provide attendees with the basic knowledge of understanding macronutrients and their caloric impact, making positive food choices, and eliminating nutrient-poor “foods”.
Participation in the Nutrition Challenge is $80
After the Superbowl wraps up that night, participants in the four-week Nutrition Challenge will begin working on a nutrition focus of their selection. This focus can include but is not limited to the following:
- fat loss
- weight/muscle gain
- recomposition (fat loss, muscle gain, and increased athletic performance)
- creating a new habit of clean eating with no intention of weight change
- special needs (Celiac’s/gluten-free, lactose-intolerant/dairy free, diabetic, etc.)
Once participants’ focuses have been provided to the coaches, they will be divided into support groups based on similar goals. Each support group will be given leadership by their own separate coach who will provide the following throughout the Nutrition Challenge:
- weekly reviews of their participants’ daily food logs
- recommendations and adjustments will be provided where necessary, based on your focus
- a weekly focus on what to remove from your diet
- a weekly focus on what to include in your diet
- weekly support, question addressing, meal ideas, troubleshooting, etc.
Support groups will also rely on one another to help each other focus on their common goal. Participants in each support group are encouraged to communicate with each other to further expand their knowledge, provide advice/tips/words of encouragement, and address common questions.
Participation in the Nutrition Challenge will not require before and after photos, weigh-ins, body fat measurements, strength and conditioning tests, etc. BUT they can be included if desired by the individual (please let us know ahead of time if this is something you would like to do so that we can help you!). Thus, there will be no prize, no “winning”, and no pressure to achieve an end result. The overall goal for this Nutrition Challenge is to arm YOU with the necessary tools for making good decisions toward a life-long change in YOUR nutrition habits and a greater understanding of the impact of YOUR diet on YOUR overall health.
Registration for the Nutrition Challenge is available on MindBody on the “CHALLENGES” tab.
