 Today we will kick off our challenge. We have several that are ready to go! Some of you have not had the opportunity to sit in and listen to the details on how this all works. No problem. I’ll go over the details with anyone that needs them over the next couple of days. One thing I let everybody know is that the first week or so there will be a lot of uncertainty. It will be a whole lot of figuring out if we have the points down and what constitutes the points. WRITE EVERYTHING DOWN!…EVERYTHING! If I can look at your notes it will take all the guesswork out of the direction you’re headed. Don’t stress over this. Especially the ones that will just be getting the details. There is no need to fret over time lost. What we are really trying to accomplish is not just what can we do in 9 weeks but how to improve our health and fitness from here on out. Most, if not all, of us will see the most drastic changes going into the second half of the challenge and I don’t believe anyone will be disappointed with the results. For those who really want an exact account of just how much this challenge does, we have made arrangements for blood work to be done anytime this week to get beginning levels on triglycerides, cholesterol levels and blood sugar. The charge for this will be only $60. At the end of the 9 weeks we will make the same arrangements for the results. This brings us to our WOD for today. We will do this WOD now and 9 weeks from today to see an improvement in performance.
