Consider who you want to be in on June 27th.
If you were at the very top of your health and well-being, what would you feel like? What would your family members and friends say about you? How much energy would you have?
So fast-forward and paint yourself a picture: What do you look like on June 27th?
That’s what the Whole Life Challenge will do for you when you join my team and make a commitment to replace a few bad lifestyle habits with good lifestyle habits. (You can learn more about the Whole Life Challenge by watching the two videos on this page of our website.)
Once you watch the videos, you can join my team here:http://www.whole.lc/wlcmay15/pt/crossfitnola. For eight weeks, starting on May 2 and ending on June 27th, we’ll work on all the areas of our well-being—like nutrition, stretching, exercise, for starters.
The Whole Life Challenge is basically a game that challenges us to “try on” a whole life of health and fitness for eight weeks. As a team, we can win points and lose points (hopefully we’ll win more than we lose). And the prize is … Well, it’s who you are on June 27th.
And free months of classes! You can win a free month of CrossFit by doing well in the challenge!
I hope you’ll watch the videos and join my team. In fact, I WANT you on my team!
