paleo infographic 1 1024x720 April Paleo Challenge

Trying to get beach body ready? Now would be a good time to get your exercise and nutrition program back on track with our 30 Day Challenge!

Here’s how it works…

1. Read this first. It will cover the basics of the Paleo contest.

2. Watch these two short reviews of the Paleo Solution and Mastering the Zone. They will help you determine what to eat, how often, and how much. Bring any questions you have to Limitless and a coach will be happy to assist you.

3. Get weighed and measured on Monday, April 7th or Tuesday April 8th. You’ll need your measurements to determine your food requirements and to monitor your progress over the 30 days.

4. Bring $30 cash and be ready to perform the BaseLine workout on Monday or Tuesday April 7th or 8th.

5. Use this tracking form to score yourself every day. Submit your scores to brian@crossfitlimitless every Monday for 4 weeks.

How to Win:
There are 2 prize winners.

The first is based on overall improvement as determined by baseline, lean body mass and body fat improvement.
The second winner is for highest total daily score.

Participation is optional, but everyone who has ever participated has reported increased energy, loss of body fat, increased strength, healthier skin and hair, and better sleep.

AnneMarieDeRiccio 235x300 Athlete of the Month: AnneMarie DeRicco

About the athlete:

I grew up in Ozone Park, Queens until sixteen when my family bought a house in Howard Beach. The extent of my physical exercise was driving up and down Crossbay Blvd., making espresso/ cappuccinos at Lenny’s Clam Bar and occasionally playing handball. Later, when it became difficult to walk to a spot on the beach, I joined The Lucille Roberts Gym for aerobic classes and some brief exercise on the equipment if I could figure out how to use it. I usually got bored after five minutes and decided it was time to go shopping!

So it was not surprising when I showed up at Crossfit Limitless in the village of Huntington and needed to practice jumping rope… singles!  I remember Brian’s exact words were  “So your parents didn’t encourage you to do much in the area sports or physical activity?”  We were both very scared, but after much patience and reassurance from Brian that I will not become permanently paralyzed since I was forty-nine and already had three surgeries I enlisted.

This April it will be two years that I am proud to say I am crossfitting at Limitless, Main Street in Huntington!  I walked under the grand opening banner two years ago feeling very apprehensive and after a short time I was hooked.  Not only did I feel a boost of energy and self esteem, but I was welcomed with the warmth and comradery that only Crossfit Limitless could so naturally generate.  My membership into the Crossfit Limitless Family changed my life forever and I feel honored and blessed to be a part of such a committed and supportive group of athletes who share a genuine care and respect for each other.  Now, I can not imagine not having Crossfit in my life and each time I attend a class I realize how important it is to  be a part of such a positive and genuine group of trainers and members that share a bond that grows stronger with every WOD.

I consider myself a Crossfit Limitless Original since I was one of the first to join and experience the impact of the program and the dedicated limitless training and goodness of Brian Diaz.  He is the Heart and Soul of Crossfit Limitless and no matter where you start you will soar high and strong to rise above anything that kept you from being the best you can be.

Crossfit Limitless is a life altering program that I am privileged to participate in and I anticipate reaping more of its benefits in the years to come.  I am grateful to be inspired and empowered by the spirit and the essence of Crossfit Limitless, Main Street in Huntington, since I am significantly happier and stronger than I could ever imagine.

Our newest member, Stephanie, is excited to join the community!

IMG 4897 300x300 Paleo Challenge Winners and Review

1.) What was the hardest part of the challenge?

Figuring out the portions for the zones. I don’t think I ever quite figured it out, and I never took credit for that in my scoring. (Mainly, different kinds of foods are measured in different units, and ultimately I don’t enjoy putting everything into an app to keep track.)

 

2.) What did you learn?

That not eating sugar is something I can actually do and it really makes a difference.

 

3.) What results did you see that you are happy about?

Lost nine pounds, feel better about my diet, am able to tell myself I am less tired (although work interferes!)

 

4.) How did the challenge change how you plan to eat?

Still not eating sugar, bread, grains, dairy, etc. Eating a lot more fruit and vegetables (fruit in particular).

 

5.) What did you like/dislike about the challenge?

I miss milk and yogurt, but I basically enjoyed the challenge.

1.) What was the hardest part of the challenge?

The hardest part of the challenge for me was giving up my desserts. I would basically have some sort of dessert with every meal I had and my breakfast usually consisted of pancakes, waffles, peanut butter and like 5 tablespoons of creamer in my coffee. Very healthy, I know. It was really difficult for me to give up the sweets because my whole life I have been eating dessert for meals.

 

2.) What did you learn?

I learned how to eat healthier. I learned how to cook. I learned that I can feel better if I put better quality foods in my body. I learned how to make better choices and I actually found out about a ton of foods I never really knew existed! (Almond flour, coconut oil, lots of different fruits and veggies)

 

3.) What results did you see that you are happy about?

I have to admit the first week I was cranky. All that was going through my mind was brownies, cookies, cake, ice cream, etc. After that I started to see results. I was feeling better. I wasn’t experiencing those highs and lows in my energy levels throughout the day. I also felt less bloated and I noticed a change in my skin. I felt healthier and better about myself that I was sticking with the challenge.

 

4.) How did the challenge change how you plan to eat?

The challenge completely changed how I plan to eat. I am sticking with Paleo, I love it! I cook every night now and I prepare meals for myself for the next day. The most complicated thing I ever made before this was macaroni and cheese from the box! Now I look at all the Paleo websites for ideas. I love paleomg I think her blog and recipes are fantastic. I actually like the way the food tastes which is important to me. After the challenge was over I even tried making a Paleo dessert!

 

5.) What did you like/dislike about the challenge?

I liked the challenge a lot. I really liked that it held me accountable for everything I put in my body. I even had to keep track of how much water I was drinking and how many times a week I went to crossfit. I was determined to do it and I did. I was really impressed by how my performance on the baseline 2.0 improved. I can’t believe I did it 7 minutes faster and I felt so much better when I was done than I did the first time! I will say one part that was kind of tough was not being able to go to dinner anywhere since I didn’t really know what they were putting in the food I avoided doing that but really that was a small sacrifice to make for feeling so much better. I hope I can stay with this!
