No Pain* / No Grain Challenge Details

This January, we’re going for consistency.
First, rowing: get into the gym every day. Row 10-15 minutes as your warmup or cooldown. Achieve 100km in 31 days. Can’t make a day? Do double the next.
Second, eating: get rid of grains for January. No hacks, no ‘full paleo,’ just dump breads, cereals, pasta and other flour-based foods.
Here’s how we’ll get started:
On Saturday, December 28, attend a one-hour rowing clinic with Dr. Steve Roedde. Steve rowed across the Atlantic in 2011, and competed at the 2013 CRASH-B indoor rowing world championship. His qualifying time was a 6:44.5 1000m row.
Rowing clinic: 10am.
Next, Stephanie Eusebi will explain the rules of the Eating Challenge at 11am. Included in your registration will be a daily nutrition logbook for tracking your meals.
Eating Seminar: 11am.
Participation in the Challenge is encouraged for ALL Catalyst clients. Cost is $30, and includes both clinics as well as the challenge (and a chance to win some cool stuff!)
You’ll need an Open Gym membership to do your rowing during non-CrossFit group times. Sometimes the daily WOD will incorporate rowing; not always.
