Whole Gains Challenge

This page is a resource for members of the CrossFit Burlington community participating in the Whole Gains Challenge. This lifestyle challenge will last 1 month (from March 1st, 2019 to March 31st, 2019). This three pronged challenge will focus on Exercise, Nutrition, and Lifestyle. Like CrossFit, this challenge is specific, measurable and repeatable. Please refer to any of the resources and links within these pages to help you get the most out of this challenge.



Workout regularly and with intensity. Keep your exercises varied. Let us (CFB) do that hard part of deciding what you need to do... all you have to do is show up for class. This challenge rewards regular exercise, with bonus points awarded to double-days and epic-days, as well as PRs and competitions. Let’s celebrate those hard-earned accomplishments!

While nuances of individual nutritional needs may vary from person to person, the basic premise should be the same for everybody: eat a balance of clean, healthy food. That's it. For many of us it's simple, and for others is complicated. Whether we're counting every calorie or macro-nutrient to optimize performance, or simply trying to develop better eating patterns, this format of this month-long challenge provides an opportunity for all of us to eat better.



Exercise and Nutrition make up the bulk of this challenge, but these lifestyle points fill in the little spaces between. Sleep and outdoor exposure are important in our daily life and critical to recovery. In the spirit of being specific, measurable and repeatable, this lifestyle category has specific goals for you to work towards and ways to help you set those goals.
