Help Diamond Bar CrossFit kick off the New Year with a 30 day nutritional challenge.

Starting January 6th through February 5th, our box is participating in the Whole 30. For every percent of body you lose during the challenge, you will receive $10 off your next months dues. Body fat testing is $25 for each test. The first test takes place tomorrow at noon. We have a indepth instructional guide to the whole 30 program when you come to the box.

What is the Whole30?

Certain food groups (like sugar, grains, dairy and legumes) could be having a negative impact on your health and fitness without you even realizing it. Are your energy levels inconsistent or non-existent? Do you have aches and pains that can’t be explained by over-use or injury? Are you having a hard time losing weight no matter how hard you try? Do you have some sort of condition (like skin issues, digestive ailments, seasonal allergies or fertility issues) that medication hasn’t helped? These symptoms may be directly related to the foods you eat – even the “healthy” stuff. So how do you know if (and how) these foods are affecting you?

Strip them from your diet completely. Cut out all the psychologically unhealthy, hormone-unbalancing, gut-disrupting, inflammatory food groups for a full 30 days. Let your body heal and recover from whatever effects those foods may be causing. Push the “reset” button with your metabolism, systemic inflammation, and the downstream effects of the food choices you’ve been making. Learn once and for all how the foods you’ve been eating are actually affecting your day to day life, and your long term health. The most important reason to keep reading?

This will change your life.

We cannot possibly put enough emphasis on this simple fact—the next 30 days will change your life. It will change the way you think about food, it will change your tastes, it will change your habits and your cravings. It could, quite possibly, change the emotional relationship you have with food, and with your body. It has the potential to change the way you eat for the rest of your life. We know this because we did it, and tens of thousands of people have done it since, and it changed our lives (and their lives) in a very permanent fashion. (Need convincing? Just read some of our stunning testimonials.)

Give Us Thirty Days

Your only job during the Whole30 is to focus on making good food choices. You don’t need to weigh or measure, you don’t need to count calories, you don’t need to stress about organic, grass-fed, pastured or free range. Just figure out how to stick to the Whole30 in any setting, around every special circumstance, under any amount of stress… for 30 straight days. Your only job? Eat. Good. Food.

The only way this will work is if you give it the full thirty days: no cheats, slips, or “special occasions.” This isn’t us playing the tough guy. This is a fact, born of education and experience. You need such a small amount of any of these inflammatory foods to break the healing cycle—one bite of pizza, one splash of milk in your coffee, one lick of the spoon mixing the batter within the 30 day period and you’ve broken the “reset” button, requiring you to start over again on Day 1.

You must commit to the full program, exactly as written. Anything less and we make no claims as to your results, or the chances of your success. Anything less and you are selling yourself—and your potential results—short.

It’s only 30 days.

BODY FAT ANALYSIS $25

Sarah from Fit Fax in South  Pasadena will be visiting the body Saturday Jan 4th (yes tomorrow) between Noon – 1:30 to test our members. The testing devise being use is the Inbody 230, which is fast, accurate, and non-invasive. It is the only device on the market that provides segmental analysis (a breakdown of how much muscle is in each limb). Whether you are starting a fitness program or competing at a professional level, monitoring your body composition is the best way to benchmark and guide your training!

You should (ideally) follow these instructions:

  • Do not workout two hours prior to testing.
  • Do not eat a large meal the morning of the exam. (A small protein shake or a few eggs are fine.)
  • Hydrate well–no alcohol the night prior.
  • Refrain from drinking coffee until after the exam.
This is the testing protocol used at USC for athletes. It allows us to isolate testing variables. If youchoose to workout in the morning, you will need to do the same  (to mirror the same testing conditions)  at the retest.
You can test in exercise attire, but you must wear the SAME OUTFIT for the follow-up!
