The newest Lurong Challenge is starting later this month and I can’t wait! This year, we will replace the Sunday WODs with the weekly Lurong WOD. You can also do the workouts during open gym on Tuesday and Thursday! We have had such fun in the past and people have really dedicated themselves and seen some great results. This year, they are also offering a Macronutrient option with the meal plans, as people are beginning to understand the importance of macronutrient tracking and how well your body can respond to a well-balanced macro plan.
I think it is especially important for our new members to join the Lurong Challenge because it’s a chance to learn about nutrition and test yourself against other people around the nation that are in your age range and experience level.
It’s also pressure free. We will do the workouts in our home gym. You do the WODs, track your food and then just enter your scores online. It’s really as simple as that. The knowledge that you can gain about your nutrition and performance is well worth the registration fee. When we do the challenge again in 2018 you can compare your score to the prior year and see how far you have come.
One of the main reasons why I love Crossfit is that it offers you the chance to regularly challenge yourself. Mentally and physical venturing outside your comfort zone is a great way to feel alive!!! Also, obsessing, strategizing and worrying all day about the workout you’ll have to do once you arrive to the gym, is a great way to take your mind off of the other things in life that might be stressing you out!
