The Look, Feel, Perform Better Challenge Winners: 1st Place
We’re so proud of everyone who recently completed the 2018 Look, Feel, Perform Better Challenge, our collective kick-start toward healthier nutrition and recovery habits in the New Year. Among the dedicated CFSBKers who rethought their diets, counted macros, and put in quality time with the foam roller, 3 women and 3 men stood out to us as winners, and we’re announcing them this week. We’ve also asked them to tell us a bit about the “secrets” to their success. Today we’re pleased to announce the 1st place winners *drumroll* … it’s CFSBK power couple Sofia M. and Lauro L.! They’ll each receive a free 1-month Unlimited membership.
The Challenge was really successful for me and I exceeded my expectations.. I lost 9 pounds, and was able to lose enough fat to start seeing the muscles that I knew were hiding. I was happy to find them for the 1st time in my life! It is funny that 13 months after having a baby, this is by far the best shape of my life. Knowing that so many people were going through the same process really helped me stay away from my trigger foods, like sugar and alcohol. In general, I have been feeling much stronger and energetic at the workouts, and I have been seeing really good progress in my training.
Capacity Test (22 lb Thruster and Jumping Pull-Ups with 16in box):
Before = 9:35. After = 8:45
Active Recovery and meditation are not my thing, so that is the item that I did not do so well with. Everything else was really good!
I lost 5 kg since the Challenge began. I also have been exercising consistently five times a week, and I am feeling great. I’ve never had such a good stretch of exercise and balanced eating since, ever. I registered as Level 1, but Sofia was doing it as a Level 2 and showed me the tricks on how to count macros, so I did Level 2 monitoring for a couple of weeks and learned a lot. My biggest lesson: “One cheeseburger and my fat intake is already at 100%”. For the first time I was using the scale to gain intuition on food amounts and their macros. It was a great experience. After Level 2 tracking for two weeks I relaxed on the tracking, but not on the food. I was still eating how I had learned from the tight tracking period. My capacity test was went down from 11:15 to 9:10 (I did the yellow bar and Ring Rows). At the time of the first test, I couldn’t do any Pull-Ups now I can do 6 Pull-Ups.
Congrats to everyone who took part in this year’s Challenge!
News and Notes
- Morit S. recently appeared on Pete McCall’s All About Fitness podcast. Check it out here!
- CFSBK is looking for new talent to staff our front desk on Monday evenings from 4:15 to 9:45pm ! Responsibilities include handling inquires from walk-ins, managing basic membership issues, light cleaning/organization, and other miscellaneous duties. Ideally, we’d like to hire from within so that candidates are already familiar with CrossFit and CFSBK, but we are open to talking to new folks if they’ve got good people skills and are committed to joining the gym. On top of an hourly wage, Front Desk staff will also receive 50% off membership for one shift per week or a comped membership for two shifts or more per week. We are looking for people who keep a consistent schedule and commit to six months of work with us (barring extenuating circumstances). We will be interviewing this month and hiring a new staff member for immediate training. Email Charlie [at] CrossFitSouthBrooklyn.com to inquire and include “Front Desk” in the subject line.
