CrossFit Sprag is hosting a 6-Week Summer Shred Nutrition Challenge. This challenge is built for anyone looking to see positive changes in performance, energy levels, body fat percentage, and confidence amongst many other things. Over the course of these 42 days we will evaluate the way you eat, sleep, hydrate, and exercise.
You all work hard in the gym so why not work just as hard on your health? Fueling your body with proper nutrition, hydrating, and recovery is key inachieving your fitness goals. To keep it fun, everyone will have a partner to help keep them accountable and engaged.
This challenge will focus on the quantity of food you are eating and what the breakdown of that food looks like between carbs, fats, and protein. Your own personal macro breakdown will be calculated for you prior to the start of this challenge. All who sign up will get initial and final body fat and tape measurements along with a weight-in/weigh-out and progress pictures (taken on your own personal phone J).
There will be a closed Facebook group for members to post daily points and to communicate to the coaches. This will be great for everyone to share ideas, struggles, etc!

Throughout the challenge we will host additional events to help you along the way.

Growing up, I always had a passion for health and fitness. My parents encouraged me to play sports and compete at an early age. I remember going to the batting cages for hours as a child, attending every summer sports clinic that I could, and playing on travel leagues for softball and soccer. In 2007, I graduated from Fairleigh Dickinson University in New Jersey, with my Masters degree in Behavioral Neuroscience Psychology. In college, I ran cross-country and dabbled with the swim team J and from that grew an interest in triathlon training. I have completed a Half Ironman (70.3) and a Century (103.6) race to date while raising over $40K for The American Cancer Society.
As a lifelong athlete, I stand by the principle that perfect practice makes perfect, something I would learn to value more later on in life and something that is constantly evolving. My CrossFit journey began in 2010 when I completed my first WOD. I was instantly hooked on CrossFit and immediately booked my Level 1 in San Diego. I have been coaching ever since. CrossFit empowered me to take my fitness to the next level. In 2014, I was asked to join the New Jersey USA Power Lifting (USAPL) team. I took 3rd in the states that year and finished 6th at the American Open in Washington, DC. I then took 1st in the Alpha Regional competition and placed top 10 in the Alpha Nationals. I toured the east coast CrossFit circuit as the East Coast Territory Manager for Xendurance, it was my job to visit boxes and talk to athletes about supplementation.
As my own level of fitness increased so did my passion for learning and coaching. I went back to get my CrossFit Level 2 and CrossFit Kids certifications. I am a National Academy of Sports Medicine Certified Personal Trainer and have my coaching certification in USAW and USAPL. I am also a certified referee for USAPL. I hold additional certifications in kettlebells, TRX, spinning, and Muay Thai. At Lifetime Fitness I gained experience as a metabolic technician, and I have managed multiple fitness facilities to include Equinox in NYC. In 2016, I went back to school for my Masters in Business Administration in 2016 at before joining the United States Army as an Engineer Officer.
My passion is to inspire people around me to push themselves to places they never thought possible. I take a scientific approach to training and recognize the benefits that a varied strength and conditioning program provide to both competitive athletes and individuals looking to improve overall health and mental wellness. I emphasize the importance of nutrition with my clients and work with them to create healthy choices. My goal is to connect with each person she trains in a way that motivates and inspires them to perform at their highest level.
