Our members have strong bodies and stronger minds! Check out Katie’s Ted Talk on gut microbes and her research with primates; discussing how our western diet and our hyperactive gut microbes are no longer working in a mutually beneficial pattern and how this can lead to diseases, obesity, and other issues within our bodies many of us suffer from.
This was an incredible Clean Challenge! We’ve never seen such high point totals and such camaraderie. If you missed this one, we’ll run another one just after the New Year. We had 70 participants this time and the average body fat lost was 2.4%. Fitness scores improved by an average 11% and 7 rep max back squats improved by an average of 18 lbs over the 30 days. It just goes to show that clean eating, sleep and consistent exercise can really supercharge your results! Everyone worked so hard but we wanted to call out a few winners below.
Honorable Mentions : These two worked their butts off…great job!
