Congrats to all our Summer Shake Down participants!!! The results were amazing & it was truly hard to pick the top 3 winners!
The top 3 winners took control of their nutrition over the past 30 days & not only lost a combined toxic 17+ lbs, but they shed body fat and inches! Through the use of nutritional rebalancing, convenient nutrition and a flexible dieting approach, they increased their lean muscle mass (proven by increasing their 5 RM Back Squat and amount of strict pull-ups/ring rows) and improved their overall cardiovascular endurance (pre and post testing of a 3 minute burpee challenge)!! AND one of these amazing people is growing a human!
Here are your top 3 Winners of CFP’s Summer Shake Down Challenge:
1st Place with a $200 gift card to Lululemon – Macaira!!! Macaira increased the amount of burpees she did in 3 minutes by 8 additional reps, added 15lbs to her 5 rep max back squat & completed 16 more ring rows!
Macaira actually lost the least amount of weight (about 3lbs)…but boy do her progress pictures tell a different story!!! Macaira truly leaned out as she learned how to properly fuel her body during this challenge. She shed unwanted body fat and continued to build lean muscle with intermittent fasting, nutritional cleansing and counting macros. She did it all! All while living her normal life… Macaira switches from day to night shift regularly as a nurse, attended 2 bachelorette parties during the challenge and continued to keep up her workout routine, even on vacation.
And she is a GREAT example as to why we need to throw away the scale sometimes!!
In her own words, here is what Macaira took away form the challenge: 1) I need more protein, 2) it’s okay to still eat sweets in moderation, 3) I never have to sacrifice foods, 4) weight isn’t everything (even though I still struggle with the numbers in the scale and thinking that’s the only thing that matters in progress), 5) I enjoy eating ” clean” or ” cleaner” because I feel better about myself in general and my body, energized and healthy!
This is what the Summer Shake Down was about!! These are the very best take aways and we are so proud of you, Macaira!! Keep up the good work!!!
2nd Place with a $100 Visa gift card – Joey!!! Joey increased the amount of burpees he did in 3 minutes by 6 reps, added 10lbs to his 5 rep max back squat & completed 5 additional strict pull-ups!
Joey lost a total of 14lbs during the duration of our challenge!!! Say what!? Crazy, right!? He used the convenient nutrition of meal replacement shakes and nutritional cleansing to help release toxic weight, gain energy, and feel better overall! He had his sister join him on this journey and she too lost 14lbs!! It’s amazing what having an accountability partner can do for you!
Joey traveled for work some during the challenge and still managed to keep up with his nutrition. Shakes on the go sure are convenient! He was tracking what he was eating using My Fitness Pal to track overall macros as well. Early in the challenge, Joey was having some shoulder issues that kept him from working out as much as he would have liked.
This is life, right!? Simply by taking control of his nutrition, fueling his body properly and ridding his body of toxins, Joey lost weight retained lean muscle mass and got more fit! Win. Win. Win!
3rd Place with a 1 hr Massage gift card – Mallory!!! Mallory increased the amount of burpees she completed in 3 minutes by 1 additional rep, added 10lbs to her 5 rep max back squat & completed 9 more ring rows! All while growing a human!!
Mallory began the challenge at 24 weeks pregnant. After letting her eating get a little out of hand during her first trimester, Mallory wanted to reign it in and track what she was eating to make sure she wasn’t using pregnancy as an excuse to overeat and overindulge! She also used the convenience of meal replacement shakes for her busy life to make sure she was getting proper nutrition for her and her baby girl!
We knew going in the goal was a little different for Mallory, as the scale may still go up, but the main focus was for maintenance and fat loss. As you can tell from Mallory’s pictures, fat loss was definitely happening! So many times women use pregnancy as their reason to eat whatever they may want, but Mallory was dedicated to giving her baby the best nutrition possible!!
Truly the best gift you can give to your baby is a healthy mama! So proud of you, Mallory!!
