Rest - Why its so important to reaching your goals

Rest is needed to function properly and recover your muscles after hard training days. However, the most common mistake is to only allow your body to rest for 5 hours a night due to the fast lifestyle people often live. There are various reasons on why you need to get plenty of rest.

Within days of turning 40, I am happily at the smallest weight I have been at in a decade. My greatest victory in this challenge has been sticking to the diet with pretty close fidelity; keeping a clean diet has always been a challenge for me, and with this experience, I demonstrated to myself the difference eating well can do for my body. I would absolutely recommend someone give this a try.Chad Copeland | CrossFit Hyattsville, MD

No Whole Wheat?

When you first looked at the ELITE diet guidelines for the Challenge what was your reaction to "no sugar, no dairy, and no WHEAT"? Eating bread, cereal, pizza, hamburger buns, and pasta is like a right of passage in America, so what is this anti-wheat business all about even at the PRO level?

Challenge Togetherness

Even with all the connections we to others with the internet, social media, and cell phones, there still remains a "lone-wolf" mentality in our culture. We tend to keep people just close enough without allowing them to be a "part" of our lives. The 2017 Lurong Living Summertime Challenge breaks down barriers and further unifies the community at your box. It also harnesses the power of working as a team. So if you have thought for a moment about doing this Challenge by yourself, it is time to change your mindset and rally your affiliate.
Hard to believe it's the end of another Challenge. It is true when they say time flies when you're having fun! Lurong Living Challenges and CrossFit Arenal have truly changed my life! I will be 51 this year and I am in the best shape of my life! I am doing things that I never thought possible like racing in my first triathlon. Thank you for being the absolute best support on my amazing journey! It has been an overwhelming incredible adventure! Sheri Gelvar | CrossFit Arenal, MD
