There have been whispers. There have been rumors. Ladies and gentlemen, I'm here to tell you -- they're all true!
The Whole Life Challenge is back, and it's bigger and better than before! The WLC started right here at CrossFit LA a year and a half ago, and you can always say that you were among the first to play. This time around, though, you'll be playing with 10,000-20,000 people form affiliates around the world! Your hard work and commitment has made this game possible for thousands of other people!
The Whole Life Challenge is an 8-week health and fitness game that will have you take a 10,000 foot, birds-eye view of your whole life inside of your commitment to your health and well-being. You will take on your nutrition, your workouts, your daily habits, and maybe most importantly, your personal beliefs about what's possible for you. The game is played online (and for those of you who have played before -- we have a brand new site for you!) AND in your life. You will be measured at the beginning of the challenge in a prelims event where you will do a baseline workout and complete some basic body measurements. Everyday you will follow the specific rules and guidelines of the challenge and every day you will log online and give yourself a score for how you did the day before. This isn't about getting a perfect score every day, it's about having a score each day to know how effective you are. Increasing your effectiveness over the course of the challenge is where it's at! After 8-weeks you will repeat the measurements again to see how you improved and who won!
And just as in our last challenge, you are welcome to invite your friends and family to play along with you in the game and have them get the same great results that you get!
