The New Year, New You Challenge is designed to bring the weight loss goal back, front and center. It’s designed for anyone who needs a little inspiration to go with their perspiration– because we already know you got the sweat part down. Unfortunately for most of us, weight loss is 80% diet and 20% exercise. Let’s give our bodies the 100% they deserve. (Remember Summer bodies are forged in Winter!)
It’s easy to chase dead lift PRs and back squat numbers and tell ourselves that we are building muscle and that’s why the scale has not moved. I consult with people each week who love CrossFit, but are not seeing the results they desperately want to see in their body composition. My fear has always been that if you don’t reach your goals in a reasonable time frame, you will give up on our sport. I’m not letting that happen on my watch.
50 people x 10lbs = 500 pounds
I propose that for 45 days at least 50 people ban together and lose 500 pounds by eating less and moving more. Whether you have five, ten, twenty, fifty pounds to lose, the challenge is for you, so get in on it. It will cost you $20, so you almost have nothing to lose but the obvious.
Grand Prize: Now for the best part. Wait for it… wait for it… The winner of this challenge will receive 6 month membership FREE at Clutch. Read that again. Do the math. Feel the savings in your bank account, or better yet on your ass in the form of a pair of SMALLER pants. Now that I REALLY have your attention, here’s how this is going to work.
The winning athlete will have the highest number of points at the end of the challenge. Every percentage point of body weight lost will be one point. Every inch lost from the neck, arms, thighs and waist will be one point, and every WOD done during the 45-day challenge will count for one point. Daily points will be accumulated using our weekly spreadsheet. You will need to turn one of these in each week to get all of your bonus points.
Each day you can accumulate up to 9 points, with additional bonus points offered, including weekly “mystery” bonuses. The scorecard provided outlines many of the point offerings, and in Excel format, so you don’t even have to do math! (Yes, it’s ok to kill a tree and print it, too)
Spreadsheets will be due each Wednesday throughout the challenge. They may be emailed in or printed and submitted. click here to see spreadsheet- New-Year-New-You-Challenge-Tracker

What is CrossFit Kids?
CrossFit Kids is not simply a scaled down version of CrossFit, it is entirely absolutely CrossFit
geared and designed for a special population and the specific developmental needs of that population. (neurological, cognitive, motor skills)
The CrossFit Kids program is a perfect conditioning program for kids ages 7- Preteen(12). The CFK program focuses on “functional fitness movements” such as balance, speed, strength, coordination, agility, power and cardiovascular endurance.
Functional fitness movements are movements that help your body function like it should, giving one the ability to get normal things done in your daily life. CrossFit Kids workouts consist of constantly varied, functional movements that deliver a level of conditioning that is broad, inclusive and general, as well as scaleable for any participant, at any level. Most importantly, to the kids at least, ITS FUN!
For the most part, no two workouts are the same, so kids and teens never get bored and the novelty of each workout keeps them excited about participating. The functional movements involve exercises that are fundamental to all things that kids need to do, not just in sports, but in life as well. All of the movements are taught safely and effectively under the close supervision of our certified CrossFit Kids Trainer, Laura Schmidt. As a CFK athlete, participants will be better at any and every sport that they play because CrossFit Kids doesn’t coach them to be good at just one thing, so it’s a very well rounded program. Also, with workouts that are scaleable, CrossFit Kids can equally benefit a child who is less active, or an accomplished athlete. This is done by tailoring workouts so that each participant is challenged just enough to deliver measurable results, and personal athletic progress.
Keep It Fun
From start to finish, a CrossFit Kids builds fun into the structure of the class. The framework is essentially the same from preschool through teen, with some changes as the kids get older, particularly in terms of class length. Duration is based on CrossFit Kids’ experience with the typical attention span of children as they mature. Keep the children engaged only as long as they are developmentally able to remain engaged and then leave them wanting more.
