Nutrition Class Success

We had some great improvement from our most recent Nutrition Class. The tests were done using our Bodpodon 8/20/13 and then again on 10/1/13. The class read the book "It Starts With Food" and did a Whole30 program. 

Ed Yankowski had a 11.7% improvement in Body Fat! He lost 13 lbs of body weight but what was significant is that he lost 17 lbs of fat, while gaining 4 lbs of muscle. 

Helen had a 6% improvement in Body Fat! For a Master's age group athlete this is significant. She added 2.5 lbs of Muscle!

Mauricio had a 13.8% improvement in Body Fat! He lost 9.2 lbs of FAT!

Vijay, our first vegetarian giving the Whole30 veggie version a try, had a 9.1% improvement in Body Fat! This while going on vacation for a week in Hawaii.

Well it has now been a year since CrossFit Forest came into my life, and completely changed it! A year ago I was struggling to get into shape. I was running everyday and still gaining weight. Then Ryan made me promise to try crossfit and stick to it for four weeks. The first photo is about four months before I started. The second photo is about 7 months and my first whole30 after. And the third is about a week ago. I have gone from a size 10/12 to a 6 and sometimes on a good day size 4. I am doing things I never thought I would, like climbing a rope 15 feet, pull ups, push ups and lifting 115 lbs over my head. I feel strong and much more confident than I ever have in my life! A massive thank you to Pete JonesMartin PedreiraSkye Pratt EppersonSandy Jones, Heath Babb, Matt Zumo and Dale Prouty! I cannot thank you guys enough for all of your coaching and encouragement! Also, I am super thankful for all of the great friends I have made. All of you make the workouts and get-togethers fun! Most of all thank you Ryan Claryfor making me try it.
