O.K. Phone techies, try looking up "My Fit Pal" you can track your food for your "biggest winner" and friend people on your team so you can all see what each other is eating. It's pretty cool. You set your daily calorie count, then you log in what you eat and it counts your calories. If you don't know, you take a picture of it and it calculates it for you. Check it out.
Also, there will just be a 5:30 WOD on Friday so we can all workout and eat food. Invite anyone you like to partake in the festivities and check out what an awesome gym you belong to.
Also, we will not have coaches leading classes the week of Christmas. The gym is always open for anyone to come in and work out. I'll let you know if anyone is planning to go in at a regular time so you may join them.

Sunday, December 9, 2012


30 Clean and Jerks for time @ #135/95
2 Rounds
60 second row for max calories
Don't forget to tell everyone you know about our "pay for January get February Free" deal.
O.K. Ready for some "Biggest Winner" Rules!!!

You must be an active member of the gym, working out at our facility 3 to 6 times a week. If you work out at The Militia Box 3 times a week and do other things like run, do yoga, static heavy lifting, another facility you can count those workouts for a point. But at least 3 times in a week you must work out at The Militia Box.

Everyone, no matter what diet, is allowed a free day to eat what ever they want. Pick that ONE day and stick to it.

$50 buy in...but you have a chance to earn most of your money back.

Each day you may earn your money back. If you don't get perfect points (a blue star) you lose your days worth of money and it will go into the pot for the winning team.

There is a total of 46 days in this diet. 6 of those days are full cheat days, leaving 40 days to not cheat. Your $50 goes into the pot for the winning team to get. $10 of that $50 will automatically stay in the pot, but you have the chance to win $40 of that back yourself. Each day you follow the point system perfectly you earn a $1 for that day. If  you miss just one of the points or cheat in any way in your eating according to the diet plan you pick you relinquish that daily $1 to the winning teams pot, which in turn brings your team down in points. The winning team on Feb 15th will split the pot of money.

Point System...

1 Point for not going outside the boundaries in your diet plan. If you are unsure if what you are about to stick in your mouth is not part of zone, paleo or Four Hour Body, "DON'T EAT OR DRINK IT!" If you do you lose your point and $1.

1 Point for drinking 64oz of water every day

1 Point for taking your daily fish oil AND vitamin. If you have a problem burping up fish oil, put it in the freezer.

1 Point for exercising that day. (if you work out more than once in a day you still only get one point).

There will be an extra credit point given each day for reading 6 chapters from the New Testament, starting in Matthew and ending in Revalation. What a great way to start the New Year than reading through the New Testament. We all feel that we should eat right, drink enough water, take care of and exercise the body God gave us, take our daily vitamins and fish oil, but we should also take care of the mind and soul that God gave us and feed and water it with His Word.
Extra credit does not negate anything bad you've eaten, but all participants who complete the reading will go into a drawing at the end for a prize.

Each day you must put a star for the previous days accomplishments.
A blue star for a total of 4 points
A red star for a total of 3 points.
A Gold star for a total of 2 points.
A Silver star for a total of 1 point.
A colorful dot when you have done your daily bible reading along with your star.

Posters will be on the wall in the gym.
