This year’s Everything is Everything fitness/nutrition challenge starts today.  Make sure to set you goals high and shoot for the stars.  It doesn’t matter what you want to accomplish during this EIE, it only matters that you want to improve at something.  Challenge yourself to break the mold and get out of your comfort zone.  Enjoy the next 6 weeks for it just may change your life.  

On Saturday, January 18, head over to the Venice gym from 4-6 pm-ish and bring your favorite dish to share!  We don’t pre-assign what to bring, but with enough people we typically have a pretty good mix of appetizers, entrees, meats, veggies, salads, and more.  We’ll provide plenty of guacamole but will only have water and ice if you want to bring cocktails.  We will also have a couple games setup and will host a brief Q and A about the challenge and the CF Games Open at 5pm.  Afterwards a bunch of us will be heading out to the Bayshore Bowling alley in Santa Monica if you are interested in playing!

Good luck and Godspeed.
