New Years Challenge 2014

Overdrive New Years Challenge 2014

Date: January 6 – January 31, 2014

Summary

This will be a hybrid challenge consisting of both nutritional and physical components. The nutritional component will encourage you to eat clean and eliminate all sugars and non-paleo carbs and breads(wheat). The physical component will test before and after WOD scores to see how you’ve improved your fitness as a direct correlation to healthier eating.

Cost: $25 per person

How

1.      1.  Come to the box Sunday Jan.5 at 12 pm or Monday Jan. 6 at 12 pm or 5 pm

2.       2. Get registered and have all your measurements and photos taken

3.       3. On Tuesday Jan. 7, perform the testing WOD(if for some reason you cannot make it to the box on this day, then you are to perform the WOD either on Sunday Jan.5)

4.       4. Go grocery shopping, plan your meals, and start living and breathing a healthier lifestyle!

Scoring System

 What our scoring system aims to do is:

  • Objectively measure performance results
  • Reward people based on their improvement, but ensure that nobody tanks the WOD component

How we do that is by scoring you by rank in the following categories:

  • Initial WOD
  • Final WOD
  • Before and after pictures(frontal)
  • Before and after measurements(Hips, waist, bodyfat %)

You’ll receive a score based on your rank each of these categories.  So if you have the 21st highest WOD scores in the initial WODs, your score is 21.  If you have the 8th best WOD improvement after completing the final WODs, you’re score at that point is 29 (21 + 8).

We then rank you based on your photos.  If you had the 5th best photos, you’re total score is now 34 (21 + 8 + 5). Whoever has the lowest score at the end of the Paleo Challenge wins.

By making the initial WODs 1/4 of your score, we ensure that if anyone tanks that on purpose, they will be tanking 1/4 of their score.  

 The bottom line is that everyone can benefit from signing up for the New Years Challenge because you a) have a shot at winning no matter what your background is, and b) you’re going to get a very objective assessment of how much a Paleo/Zone lifestyle helped you improve your performance.
