We are on a Mission
To push our members, athletes and community to set goals and accomplish things they never thought they could. There’s more to health and fitness then the hour you spend in the gym so we are here to help you in all aspects of life.
We’re only successful when you’re successful!
Here’s our chance to share the hard work and results our athletes have achieved.
I had 3 goals I wanted to achieve in the last 6 weeks. I wanted a healthier gut, lose 15 lbs and “feel” better. I achieved ALL 3 GOALS!! My stomach was less bloated and didn’t have pain… I lost 15 lbs and I feel phenomenal!! The adjectives I would now describe how I eat, feel and look would be…. STRONG, BALANCED, ALIVE, HAPPY, MINDFUL and HEALTHY!!
Thank you Wrought Iron Gym for giving us this challenge to better our lives in the gym and outside the gym!! The information that I have learned in the last 6 weeks with nutrition will help me for a lifetime!
Thanks again for doing all this extra stuff other just being cross fit coaches and getting me going down the right path.
We (athletes, gym rats, dad bods, health nuts, etc.) put so much emphasis on protein, supplements, and even carbs to build muscle that diets become severely imbalanced. I know before I was focused on how much chicken I eat a day and didn’t worry about the rest much. “oh we cook all our meals, its home made therefore it is healthy” this was my basic assessment. My biggest surprise over the last 6 weeks is how good I feel; in almost every area. Brain function, aches, pains, attitude, ability to deal with stress, outlook on life, etc. I know you stated in many times in the Dec challenge, what we put in our bodies impacts all areas, but I did not appreciate it until I saw it for myself.
Now the other benefit was looking in the mirror, dropping about 15 lbs. in 6 weeks shocked me; I didn’t think I had that much body fat to begin with so I was surprised to see it melt away. It is hard to assess how much this impacted muscle strength but I can say that being lighter made the 19.4 muscle ups a lot easier lol.
I have made significant changes this year in several areas, one being doing ROMWOD 7 days a week which has vastly improved my flexibly, improving my form on lifts as well as eliminating so much pain. I intend on continuing a modified version of this diet as we have discussed with slow increases to carbs and protein to ensure I am still able to build muscle. I am excited to see the changes, 6 weeks is no time at all and I look like a different person, that part is nice but the way it has positively impacted my life is the part that drives me to continue it.
