I recently asked Robin about uncovering vibrant health later in life. She assured me if "I can do it, anyone can." Robin takes advantage of all the coaching aspects of CrossFit Ocean City including goal setting and EVERY nutrition and performance challenge. In her own words, she talks specifically about the role the Whole Life Challenge has played in her ongoing success:
"In 2010 I participated in my first nutrition and performance challenge. Since that time I have participated in every challenge related to nutrition and fitness offered at CrossFit Ocean City. Each one has been significant for me personally - they have literally changed my life. I have learned from each experience and developed a lifestyle that represents those learnings and experiences.
The Whole Life Challenge from the Spring of 2013 was an amazing experience as I was able to take all the things I had learned in previous challenges and add even more elements to include mindfulness, water intake, sleep and acts of kindness. These are significant elements that contribute to the whole you and when incorporated with mobility, daily workouts and good nutrition, you truly uncover the best you.
The accountability element through technology was fabulous. I looked forward to recording my data each day and tracking my progress. In the end, I had great success including weight loss and lost inches. Additionally, I felt amazing and I accomplished significant personal records in the gym during the 8 week challenge.
People often worry about these challenges not happening at a “good time.” There are always celebrations, parties, and holidays so a “good time” is never going to happen. I did not let planned vactions get in the way of my particiapation. Although challenging to adhere to the guidelines while travelling, I did it anyway. Unlike the old me, I had the tools and resources to enjoy the food culture of the countries I visited, AND still make progress.
The idea of Whole Life has become my lifestyle even when there is no formal challenge. I look forward to September 7 and the start of the next Whole Life Challenge. I can't wait to see what I uncover next!"
