Whole 30 Winners, Part 1

By Marcus | In Challenges | on February 9, 2012

First of all, a huge thanks to all those who participated in the W30 challenge this time around! We trainers were amazed in the physical changes seen in such a short period of time. While the physique change was only one component of the challenge, this was the absolute toughest part to judge.

Numbers are numbers and it’s easier to make a call based on performance in the baseline and final workouts. But when it came to everyone’s photos, we were so proud of all of your progress that there was a lot of painful deliberation. To all those who crossed the finish line, please give yourself a big pat on the back for some incredible improvement.

As the saying goes, “Ladies first”, so we will start with our top female finishers… Third place goes to our defending champion from last year’s Whole 30 — Michelle! While she may have had a leg up since this wasn’t her first rodeo, she still managed to avoid chocolate cupcakes — on her birthday, no less! Kudos to some massive willpower.  Michelle came in first in the baseline WODs with 4  pull ups (tied with Stephanie) and her 1:55 lap run time.  She then improved her deadlifts by 56.5#, added 1 pull up, and knocked off one second off her run time.

In second place, someone that we found has been sandbagging! Skillfully hiding her strict pullup and powerful deadlift, Mercy really turned it up a notch this past month.  Mercy came in first overall in her baseline deadlift with 248#!  She then improved it by 42.3#, went from 2 to 4 pull ups, and knocked off 2 seconds from her run time. And our female winner this time around really showed that teamwork can help take you far. She made a point of sharing dinners with fellow W30 competitors to help stay on track.   Celina started the month not being able to do one pull up.  At the end of the month, she increased her deadlift by 83#, knocked out 3 pull ups easily, and knocked off her fun time by 1 second!  Congrats to Celina! Tomorrow we will announce the male winners. Prizes will be announced afterward.

    Now go get yourselves a nice massage to recover from the hard work — http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/02/06/how-massage-heals-sore-muscles/#

    I am sure if they asked a few CF gyms they might be able to get more than 11 volunteers for the study.
