Amy rockin' the overhead squats.  Heels in a little tighter and we've got perfection.

So why are we doing the Paleo Challenge and not the Zone Challenge?  Well, we're starting the seven week challenge by improving the quality of the food we're putting in our pie holes.  To win the Paleo Challenge, integrating the Zone concepts that we've put into practice will give you an edge by balancing your meals to regulate hormones and restrict caloric intake to support muscle growth, but not to store fat. 

For those athletes that have already adjusted to weighing and measuring, simply eating a paleolithic diet should be an easy change.  For athletes that have held off on starting to eat in the Zone, simply improving the quality of the food that we eat will be a huge step in the right direction.  After a couple of weeks of eating a paleolithic diet, we'll have a second weekend clinic that will discuss integrating the paleolithic and Zone diets for optimal results.  I'm so excited – this is going to be amazing!

Are you not a member of CFV?

Now is the perfect time to get involved with the best fitness community in NW Denver.  Jump on the bandwagon and start March off right by scheduling your Elements Course and participate in our Paleo Challenge.  The prizes will be great, but better yet, you'll be joining 45 other people on their seven week journey to self improvement.  Call or stop by to discuss membership options.
