The CrossFit Scottsdale Body Rx Challenge was designed to help students make a complete healthy lifestyle change. Through focusing on nutrition, challengers were able to see how the food the choose can positively or negatively effect their performance in class, muscle gain, and fat loss. Daily points for eating Paleo were tracked as well as bonus points for incorporating important parts of a healthy lifestyle with weekly challenges like sleep, mobility and taking fish oil. Initial, mid-way and final ultrasound body fat scans, measurements, & pictures were taken. Performance was measured through a timed 1 mile run and 1 Rep Max Clean & Jerk at the begining and end of the 35 day challenge.
The results…were nothing short of AMAZING!!
ALL of the challengers embraced the Paleo concepts and lifestyle to completely re-design your health and bodies!
