I don’t need a calendar to know it’s the beginning of a new year. I can tell by the influx of emails I’ve received promoting Paleo and fitness challenges. I can tell by the increase in joggers on the streets and the endless commercials for weight loss programs. This is the time of resolutions, for setting out to change ourselves, to start or stop doing the things we always wanted to change about ourselves.
In response to this, we’ve come up with a New Year’s resolution of our own: No more food challenges. Not because they don’t work, but because they don’t instill long term change. They essentially turn into another diet. We’ve come to realize that many people know what to do to be healthier, they just don’t know how to go about implementing that change in the long term. And that’s where we are going to focus our efforts.
Starting January 27th, we are kicking off a Lifestyle Reboot. This is going to delve into more than just food, but tackle the pitfalls and roadblocks that accompany making a lifestyle change, i.e. goal setting, stress management, identifying challenges to your goals, etc. This will run approximately 8 weeks and will consist of a weekly class covering a specific topic relating to lifestyle change. This class will be offered at various times throughout the week and will run about an hour long. Each class will also be taped for remote viewing. Some classes may involve at-home exercises or homework.
Here are some of the weekly topics we will cover:
- Goal Setting
- Food Quality
- Challenges to Goals
- Food Quantity
If you are interested in participating in the Lifestyle Reboot, you can either sign up for individual classes at $10 a class, or you can pre-register for all 8 classes for $55. If you pre-register, you can attend the classes as many times as you would like. This is also open to non-CrossFit SAC members, so if you have friends, family or co-workers who might be interested, they are welcome.
Again, this is not a food challenge, this about taking your health, fitness and goals seriously. It won’t be easy, but not much in life that is worth doing is easy.
