I always hated losing something and being told that “everyone was¬†a winner”, you know, the old “participation trophy”…. Well, typically, I still stand by this, but as far as diet/fitness challenges are concerned, I’m going to broadcast the old cliche that there are not losers.
The weeks of the Lurong Living 2014 Paleo Challenge inspired more than just the participants. ¬†The excitement in the gym during the benchmark and performance workout days was¬†electric¬†and contagious to ALL of the athletes at Shoreline CrossFit. ¬†So, thank you to all who participated for contributing to this amazing energy.
And to each and every participant, you may not be mentioned below with the “winners”, but if you shed an inch or pound, demonstrated an ounce of self-discipline, improved performance, worked a tad bit harder, or shared your “obsession” with fitness to a friend or family member, it was all worth it! So, congratulations!
SCF‚Äôs LRL 2014 Paleo Challenge in-house winners were chosen based on their dedication to diet, performance, and overall improvement over the eight¬†weeks of the challenge.
Without further adieu, I present to you the 2014 Autumn Lurong Living Paleo Challenge winners:
Our 1st¬†place female goes to Christine Vogt who ate 100% clean over the course of the challenge and scored the highest in SCF for Diet, Improvement and Performance (Total points=1927)! Christine loves a good craft beer and frequently travels, so this certainly shows a tremendous amount of self-discipline.
¬†Our 1st¬†place male goes to Lou DiNola who ate 99.6% clean over the course of the challenge and scored the highest in SCF for Diet, Improvement and Performance (Total points=1893)! Lou is a family man who comes to the gym faithfully at 6am to balance his family life with his busy schedule. ¬†Awesome dedication, Lou!
Congratulations to our 1st¬†place winners as they have made us very proud of their hard work!
It wouldn‚Äôt be fair to leave behind our runners up for 2nd¬†and 3rd¬†place:¬†for females, our 2nd¬†place finisher is Melissa Roy (Total points 1863), and a very close 3rd¬†and 4th¬†place finish from Jen Gibilisco (1843 pts) and Jen Goodwin (1841 pts), respectively.¬† For males, our 2nd¬†place finish is Joe Calamita (1854 pts), 3rd¬†place goes to Al Chavez (1852 pts), and 4th¬†place to our loyal ‚Äúnooner‚ÄĚ Ed Angiollo (1812 pts).
Congratulations to our top place finishers and to all the athletes that completed the challenge! ¬†Your t-shirts are organized on the front counter in the main room of the gym. ¬†Don’t let all of your hard work go to the wind during the holiday season. ¬†Keep that ball rolling!
Al came in in 3rd the challenge. If we counted this shirt against him, this may not have happened…
Eddie came in 4th in our challenge . Great work, Ed (and great face too)!
