Join the 2020 Look, Feel, Perform Better Challenge
Well, it’s officially 2020! While we believe it’s best to make choices in accordance with your goals and values all of (or at least most of) the time, we recognize that many of us use markers like the beginning of the year to kickstart positive changes. This year’s Look, Feel, Perform Better Challenge will follow a similar model to last year. There are two levels that you can choose to participate in. On Level 1 you’ll focus primarily on food quality and eating from a large spectrum of whole foods (lean proteins, veggies and fruits, whole grains and legumes, and healthy fats). This is a perfect place to start if you’re new to healthy eating or are want to revisit what that means for you. On Level 2 you’ll add the practice of portion control, focusing on eating appropriate (for you) servings of lean proteins, smart carbs, veggies, and healthy fats.
While this year’s Challenge is a few weeks shorter than the 12 weeks we’ve done in recent years (in 2020 we’re providing a 10-week format) this is NOT a “get fit quick” plan. The reason we run longer challenges than many other gyms (and, admittedly, like we used to) is that while extreme behavior changes can bring rapid results, we’ve almost always seen this followed up by a “crash,” where participants rebel against the limiting factors of an extreme or restrictive diet. We’d rather you have more inclusive food options and change a few small, manageable things over a longer period, than to change many things for 30 days only to get lost in a haze of bagels, beer, and chocolate cake once the challenge ends.
