Nutrition Course, New Team Members & Lift off

With Easter right around the corner, get ready for new things. 

Eat Clean, Train Dirty

The Whole 30, The Paleo Diet, Atkins diet, Keto Diet, the Mediterranean diet, the list goes on. But what makes a diet effective? 
How do we decide what we should eat, when and how much? 

We believe that with the right tools and knowhow it is possible to ‘get it right’ without stressing and we’re here to teach you. 

Join our Nutrition course in May to learn how to take control over your diet. Learn how to manage your weight and energy level for only €27,50.
We’ll meet 4 Tuesdays in a row with a fixed group to learn why it doesn’t have to be rocket science, with a measurable outcome at the end. 

You receive a full body composition analysis in the last week of April to determine your weight, fat percentage and other metrics that define your health. Frank will contact you to schedule this in. 
The re-test happens on Tuesday 31st of May from 18:00 to 19:00 to measure the effect on your health.
The body composition analysis is done with an InBody 770 at the box.

What: Nutrition course/Challenge
When: Every Tuesday in May at 18:00
Where: Somewhere private in the box
Why: Increase health, energy and performance. Learn to manage your weight and fat percentage
Who: Everybody that is looking to increase their energy level and performance, or people that experience difficulties managing their weight in a sustainable way. 
Price: €27,50

We allow a max of 30 participants, so sign up quickly if you’re ready to change the way you eat, feel, look and perform.

Save the date

Start drafting the buddy pairs and practice those couple deadlifts, buddy carries and synchronized Toes to bar, cause the date is set…
The annual Ninja Games are taking place on July 2nd this year.  
This heads up should give you enough time to reschedule your holidays, or you’ll have to miss out on the biggest Ninja event of the year.
