November 30 Day Challenge


Dear HideOut Fam,

We are pumped to announce our 3rd partner health challenge starting November 5th and ending December 5th. Each participant will choose a partner to enter the challenge with. Each partner will throw $20 into a community “pot” for the winners to take.

Why another partner challenge? For a few reasons. 1) CrossFit is about community and helping each other achieve goals 2) to help keep everyone accountable, 3) and because of the ENORMOUS success of the past one. So grab a buddy and sign up today!

What will this challenge consist of? This challenge is going to be a little different than the ones in the past. We are not going to do a “Whole 30” challenge. We are going to add in a few different items that will be allowed. The reason for this because I think it will allow us to stay on track with our diet after the challenge ends.
