The New Year Elimination Challenge is 5-week nutritional challenge where participants must eliminate something from their diet each week. The goal of this challenge is to teach you in a progressive way how to improve your overall nutrition and make a lifestyle of it. Our Training Team will help motivate and guide you towards an ultimate goal of improving your overall health, performance, and appearance.
Participants must attend a kick-off meeting on Saturday, January 16 at 8:00am, where Head Coach Rebekah Cairns and the Mission CrossFit SA Training Team will give a 30-60 minute lecture and Q&A on the theory behind changing your lifestyle, how to follow the challenge, and tips for maximizing results. We will also conduct the benchmark workout creating a baseline to work from. The week leading up to Saturday, January 15 (January 11 – 15), all participants must sign up for a time to get measured and pictures taken (there will be times allotted for this with a Coach during that week).
Participants will be ranked in three categories: workout performance, body weight and body fat. Therefore, everything is completely up for grabs. The harder you push yourself in the workouts and the better you eat, the more likely you are to accomplish your goals and have a strong chance at winning.
The challenge will conclude on Saturday, February 20 where we will retest the benchmark workout. The week leading up to Saturday, February 20 (February 15 – 19) measurements and pictures will be conducted once again.

WHAT IF I CANNOT MAKE IT TO THE KICK-OFF MEETING?
There will be no make-up meeting, but talk to a Head Coach to make other arrangements.
WHAT IF I’M ALREADY LEAN?
People who are close to their ideal body composition can still have dramatic results with a month of strict eating, and will still look very different after the challenge even if they only lose a few pounds of fat. More important than the appearance benefits are the performance and health benefits.
WHAT DO I WEAR FOR THE PHOTOS? DO I HAVE TO TAKE A PHOTO LIKE THAT? REALLY?
Women wear a sports bra and fitted shorts; men wear shorts and no shirt. Yes, this is one of the best ways to see how all the hard work you put in worked. The only people who will see these photos will be the Training Team unless you say otherwise. They will be kept confidential. As your Training Team, we only want you to be healthy and happy, so there’s nothing to be concerned about.
WHEN DO I GET MY MEASUREMENTS DONE?
There is a sign-up sheet at the front desk at the gym. Sign-up for only 1 time slot and show up early. The Head Coaches will be measuring a lot of people, so please be respectful of theirs and others time.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM 5 WEEKS OF ELIMINATION EATING?
Improved body composition (fat loss), increased energy throughout the day, reduced joint pain, better sleeping, improved blood work, mood regulation, other people wanting to be like you. Seriously, many of these benefits, if not all of them are experienced by most people who adopt this way of eating for a significant period of time.
CAN I CHANGE MY ITEM TO ELIMINATE ON A GIVEN WEEK?
No. The items you will be eliminating are selected for specific purposes in a specific order.
CAN I EAT SOMETHING THAT IS NOT ON THE PROVIDED MEAL PLAN?
Yes, but consider what you are eating. It must be of equal quality and quantity. We suggest instead of changing the entire meal, change one part of the meal to keep it simple.
