With 2018 coming up fast…
It’s been no secret that we’ve been game planning an epic Challenge to kick start the 2018 New Year. (I hate to call it a New Years Challenge because of the New Years Resolutions Stigma and bad rep it gets so we’ll just call it “The Challenge”.)
And we are ridiculously EXCITED to launch our first challenge in Reign’s New Location!
We took the best (and highly requested) aspects from 2 different successful team challenges and combined them along with fine tuning some of our behind the scenes work in an effort to deliver a year influencing experience.
This Challenge has been designed to give you start date and deadline which can directly influence intensity levels, it can help you focus more on your health & fitness, and it can help spark a surge of energy that we often times need on order to achieve big goals and disrupt routine.
“We wanted to give you the opportunity at the beginning of the year to set the tone for the rest of the year and empower you to consistently challenge yourself more!”
(From one of our Reign Fam members classrooms, Can’t wait to put these words back up in our New Gym)
IMPORTANT: And to address it now…
Yes, we understand the format for all of our challenges are similar. It’s similar because the format has been tested and proved effective for over 11+ Challenges and we don’t want to change something that statistically proves to be so effective.
However, our team works very hard to over deliver on the experience, tweak details about the challenges, and really coach on an individual level to help everyone at their own pace for every single new challenge.
The reality is, every challenge is a different experience. You’ll understand this better if you’ve done more than one challenge but chances are, you’re in a different place (Mentally/physically/emotionally/spiritually) then you were before…
You might have a different job, eat different foods, have more gym experience, or even finally hitting your groove. The thing you have to understand is, every challenge regardless of whether or not it’s the same program will produce a different result and experience.
This Challenge isn’t just some internet program, instagram e-book, or a cook book you follow.
It’s real life hard work, actual people and coaches keeping you accountable, and a sometimes a lot emotions.
It’s real results. Real Memories.
Goals Of The “Limitless” Challenge
✅ Help you develop healthy lifestyle habits that will stick with you long term and help you towards fitness goals.
✅ Make your training, working out, and fitness FUN!
✅ Strengthen our community by building more relationships with like minded individuals.
✅ Push you outside of your comfort zones and challenge growth.

This Challenge is for you if…
✅ You backed off the intensity in your training over the fall/winter and want to kick start the New Year with accountability, support, and focus.
✅ You’re looking to take your training to the next level. (Lose even more weight, start toning, or even really looking to build lean muscle and drop body fat)
✅ Motivation has been low and you need a swift kick in the rear to get back into your health and fitness grind especially after the HOLIDAYS.
✅ You are looking for a challenge to help evolve your training, self-discipline, and nutrition.
✅ You’re looking for accountability. (Let’s be honest, we all need more accountability)
✅ You want to develop new skills in training and nutrition to help you in your fitness journey.
✅ You need to start working out but don’t know where to start and you don’t want to do it on your own.
So How do You Get The Most Out Of It?
“All successful challengers “BUY-IN” to the Challenge all the way, meaning – they do all the challenges, work hard to trust the process, and always give it their best effort. There’s no second guessing, complaining, or negative self-talk.
They go “All in” with a positive attitude, stay coachable, and the X-Factor… They start to encourage others along the way!”
It’s 100% about your attitude, approach, and ability to trust the process!
To all Reign Athletes Competing in the Crossfit Open 2018
If you haven’t started your open prep (getting nutrition, training, rest & recovery dialed in) yet for February 2018…
We designed this challenge to take you right up until the week before the Crossfit Open.
This was no accident.
Our goal was to give everyone accountability, an opportunity to reel nutrition back in from the holidays, and really give your training the attention it needs in order to do well in the Open.
If you have any questions or would like to talk to a coach more about how this can help your open prep, feel free to reach out to any one of your Reign Coaches and schedule a sit down meeting!
Is this challenge for everyone?
As a matter of fact, if you’re in the middle of/following a specific program right now, working with a coach on specific goals, or even in a place in life (mentally or physically) that won’t allow you to spend extra energy on your fitness journey…
This challenge is probably not right for you.
(If you’re working with a coach and unsure… Please talk to your coach)
This Challenge is going to push you outside of your comfort zone, require energy & attention to detail, and really keep you accountable.
All the things you really want and need from a challenge in order to be successful!
Let’s get into it!

The Challenge 2018 Nutrition Protocol
For this challenge, we wanted to choose a nutrition protocol that was easy to follow and promoted taking the time to eat real nutrient dense food.
It’s also Reign’s go to Nutrition Protocol for anyone starting their training with us or looking to build good nutritional habits.
We will be following the Paleo Nutrition Protocol.
Not only does the Paleo Nutrition Protocol promote eating real food it also has a big emphasis on eliminating the crap and things your body may have a negative response to out of your diet.
Things like sugar, processed foods, certain grains, and dairy.
The 2 main factors why we like the eliminating aspect in the Paleo Protocol…
- Removing things like sugar and processed foods in your diet can quickly help eliminate a lot of excess calories in your diet. Getting rid of unnecessary calories in your diet can help you lose weight quickly!
- Removing certain types of foods like grains and dairy can be a little controversial as they should not be perceived as “bad food” however, many of us (myself included) can have a negative response to these types of food such as inflammation, bloating, and digestive issues. By eliminating them for a set period of time, it can help bring these negative responses to light and can help reset your body.
The Paleo Nutrition Protocol is still by far the most successful system we have used in a challenge setting. It was the easiest to implement, most manageable over an extended period of time, and produced the most results.
Familiarize yourself with the Paleo Nutrition Protocol before the challenge here.
We will be providing more resources for you prior to the challenge.
*If you cannot follow a Paleo Nutrition Protocol due to health reasons or other concerns, please connect with a coach. This will not make or break your ability to participate in this challenge, please communicate with us and we will be more than happy to work with you.
If you’re already in Nutrition Coaching please let Coach Mesha know that you’ll be participating in this challenge so that she can plan accordingly.

Friday Night Lights
In a previous team challenge, we held Team Physical Challenges at the gym on Friday night which became Friday Night Lights.
