So far this year we have 75 people signed up for the challenge ( insert inspirational quote- butterflyes and shit) This year’s challenge will start and end with a series of health & performance assessments. All assessment will take place at the gym on Saturday January 12th at 11 AM. Here is how it is going to work. There will be a series of stations set up for check in, body weight, before picture ( its a picture deal with it don’t comment on it), body fat, blood pressure and lipids . Health assessments for the first 30 people onsite will begin at 11 AM Physical performance ( Strength & WOD) will start at 12. Here are the performance test: 15 minutes to set a 3 rep max Back Squat.
