And the winners are…

The 2013 Paleo Challenge has come to an end. It was our biggest one yet and with the more “strict” guidelines, the most successful yet. Many inches were lost and a great deal of fat has disappeared. People have told us about ailments that no longer bother them, such as skin problems, digestive disorders, energy levels and overall health improvements. It was great to see SO MUCH success.

The winners for this year were close. For the ladies, we have Jackie Cantin who had tremendous improvements all around. And the men, we have a repeat with Lance Cudmore (with a perfect score). Congrats to the winners! And kudos to everyone that participated. You did awesome!

Now this is not the end. The Challenge was the beginning of some major life changes. It is our hope that you continue with the new habits you’ve created. We are here to help you. Talk to us. Ask questions. Join the Moncton Paleo Facebook page.

  1. Congrats you two on the Challenge! That’s awesome and congrats to everyone else who completed the challenge as well! Fantastic work!

    It’s been a few days since I’ve been to the gym so I did a double WOD…not sure I gave it my all for the second WOD though haha

    no strength

    1st: Moonwalk:
    AMRAP in 3 min for 3 rounds of
    10 lunges
    10 reverse burpees
    1.5 min rest

    Total: 219

    Cleans @ 55kg (~121lbs)
    Burpee lateral jumps

    I was feeling really tired after 8’s and slowed down a lot I think. Definitely need to try this one on it’s own next time and maybe a bit heavier! Definitely a good day though!

    Reps = 31. A little disappointed in this number, however, two of the double under sets were unbroken and that is victory in and of itself.

    Wod rx @ 145 First round went good but pat said I wasn’t locking my knees, so last 3 rounds I was trying to be very strict. Really dropped the reps, but form was better so still good. 18 1st round, 10/ 8/ 6. Total 42. Rx.
    Du’s went pretty good also.

    1. Forgot strength was shoulder press, good idea before a shoulder Wod…
      95/ 115/ 125/ 130×4/ 135×2 with good form, and thanks pat and trent. Good sharing the bar with u trent, and your ohs look solid.

      1. I am glad u take the time to notice and correct me. It will only make me better so push away.. Thanks
