We are Proudly Announcing
First Annual Crossfit Sandy Springs Gut Check Challenge!
Starts on Feb. 1st through March 13th
The challenge will have three winners: One overall winner, one winner in most body fat lost and one winner in most performance gained

The performance segment will start on the week of January 25 and will consist of 4 workouts. One will be a heavy lift or lifts, one will be an endurance workout, two will be metcons: one mixed domain and one body weight. We will re-test these the week of March 8th.

For the fat loss challenge we have the Bod pod coming out on January 30th and again on the 13th. The winner here is simply the person who loses the most percentage of body fat as measured by the Bod pod. For those of you concerned with what too eat, and you should be, Jonathan will be giving a lecture on January 27th at 7 p.m., we'll record it and post that here.

The overall winner will be the person with the best combined placing in both the fat lost and performance improvements. For example if a person gets fifth in fat loss and forth in performance than their score will be 9, if this is the lowest score they win the overall prize.

There will be a fee for the Bod pod and a mandatory ante of $20 out of which the winners' prize will come. You don't have to have your body fat taken, but we would highly recommend it, and if you don't you won't be in contention for either the overall or fat loss prize.

We'll have more details in the coming days, if you have questions ask any of us or post to comments.


  1. What's the Bod pod fee?

  2. The Bod Pod testing is $35 for each test. So $70 for the challenge, initial test and final test.

  3. Man I'm ready for this! Love the format too. People with different goals/level of fitness all have a chance to win.

  4. so we are looking at $90 to enter: $35 for each test + $20 for the ante.Is 45 days enough to see differences from paleo?

  5. How are you going to keep Andy from sandbagging in the performance challenge? ;)

  6. Enjoying my organic beef, spinach salad with olive oil, some nuts and sunflower butter from Trader Joes for lunch...MMM me paleo man.

    I guess I'd better keep hitting the Big Macs until the challenge begins though...need all the advantages I can to place.
