Drum roll, please! We can finally announce our Paleo Challenge 2.0 WINNERS!
Ladies, it was a close one, but Martina is our winner! Martina lost 9 pounds, 4 inches and 5% body fat. Not only that, but she added 8 pull-ups to her challenge score, 4 back squats and 31 reps to that bastardly met con. She was also our top point earner.
(Sophia, you were insanely close behind! AMAZING work.)
And for the guys, James came in and stole the cake! He lost 16 pounds, 3 1/2 inches and 4% body fat. He added 10 pull-ups to his score, 2 back squats and 19 reps to his WOD total. Very notably, James also achieved his challenge goal of getting 5 unassisted, consecutive pull-ups. And they were beautiful.
(Rolo, you were also very close behind!)
*Winners, don’t forget to pick up your PRIZES at the gym! Each winner receives a free month of membership at CFER, a bag of Progenex of choice, an awesome cookbook (another in both of your cases) and perhaps a paleo treat or two.
It goes without saying that ANYONE who participated in the challenge is a winner, especially in our books. It takes a lot of dedication and determination to make a promise of better health to yourself. You all should be proud. Hopefully you will take some tips from the paleo template and continue to live healthy lifestyles. What you do in the kitchen far outweighs any efforts you put in at the gym. Seriously. You can’t out-train a bad diet.

Tabata Intervals (20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest repeated 8 times) is applied in turn to each exercise with a one-minute rotation break between exercises. Each exercise is scored by the weakest number of reps in each of the eight intervals. During the one-minute rotation time, the clock is not stopped but kept running. The score is the total of the scores from the five stations.
