Gut Health?!

Description

“All disease begins in the gut.” – Hippocrates

Hippocrates said this more than 2,000 years ago, but we’re only now coming to understand just how right he was. Research over the past two decades has revealed that gut health is critical to overall health, and that an unhealthy gut contributes to a wide range of diseases including diabetes, obesity, rheumatoid arthritis, autism spectrum disorder, depression and chronic fatigue syndrome.

In fact, many researchers believe that supporting intestinal health and restoring the integrity of the gut barrier will be one of the most important goals of medicine in the 21st century.

Join us, Saturday March 31 at 11am, as our very own Kelly Liston (blogger at www.ohlardy.com, real food educator and healthy lifestyle coach) shares with us the importance of gut health and simple things we can do to heal and support our guts!

Description

Let’s start 2018 with a little REBOOT! This 5 week challenge will incorporate nutrition and workouts to get us back in the right track. We will also be performing weekly benchmark workouts to measure our progress. This year, we have teamed up with Wodify Rise which is an interactive app that allows us to track & monitor our progress as well as help and encourage each other on the way!

The REBOOT will start January 8th and finish February 9th. We will start and end with measurements and before & after photograph (optional)

Each day you have a change to earn up to 19 points (nutrition, activity, hydration, and sleep) You can also earn bonus points for participating in weekly benchmark workouts which will be each Thursday’s WOD. (You can do them on your own time to still earn points)

Nutrition: We will be cutting out grains, dairy, processed food, added sugar which included alcohol…AWW! We will replace those with lean protein, fresh fruits & vegetables, and healthy fats. (A compliant food list is provided) A perfect day will earn 5 points, Ok-ish with a few earns 3, FIASCO earns 0 points. These points will be logged into you food journal on the Wodify Rise app.

Activity: Our goal is 30 minutes of daily activity. You will earn 5 points for workout completed at Back Alley (CrossFit, Fitness, HIIT or CorePower). 4 points earned for 30 minutes of activity outside the gym & 0 points for no activity. Points will also be logged daily into Rise app.

Sleep: Because of people schedule and lifestyles, we are not setting an exact number of hours to sleep. We are having you set your sleep goal at the beginning of the challenge and asking you to stick to it. 7.5-8 hours is a good rule of thumb. 3 points for hitting your sleep goal, 0 for not.

Hydration: Our hydration goal is divide your body weight by 3 and drink that number of ounces of water daily. 3 points for hitting your hydration goal, 0 for not.

Mobility: Spend at least 10 minutes a day working through exercises that focus on mobility. 3 points for completing 10 minutes, 0 if not.
