We are excited to announce that the #52DayShred is back for round 2! We have teamed up with Nutrition Coach, Leah Clark of The Physique Shop, again to bring you a 52 Day program that actually lets you have your cake and EAT IT TOO! We actually just finished up our first challenge with some of the best 40 women we know and let us tell you, they kicked some serious butt! We got to know each other pretty well over the last 52 days by sharing highs, lows, recipes, gains, losses, PR’s, you name it we were sharing it in our Facebook group!
This time around we will be accepting 25-30 new participants for our challenge that will run from June 12-August 3rd. This way we will be able to dedicate more time and energy on personally coaching each and every one of you.
The 52 Day Shred Challenge is 52-day nutrition program to truly learn the right nutrition tools to 1) Get the body you want, 2) Achieve your fitness goals, and 3) Make properly fueling your body a sustainable lifestyle.
Is 52 Days all you need to learn everything about nutrition and get the DREAM body you want? We will be completely upfront with you here: No, 52 Days is a small blip on the radar compared to a lifetime of consistent effort towards your nutrition. But everyone’s journey has to start somewhere, and the 52 Day Shred Challenge is exactly what will get you launched into making proper nutrition a lifestyle. The goal of the challenge is to not only get you closer to the body you want and smash your goals, but to teach you how to keep going and improving, even when the challenge is over. Once you start getting results, guaranteed you will want more. It feels amazing to love and take care of your body and so many awesome things in life start right there. We want you to be able to experience this for yourself!
We are big advocates of flexible dieting/macronutrient counting, as it makes sticking to your nutrition plan sustainable with all the various things life throws your way. It’s wine night with the girls but you’re trying to drop fat? No problem, you can have the wine AND drop the fat. It’s all about learning how to do it. It’s a balance, which is exactly what the 52 Day Shred Challenge will teach you!
So if you are ready to tone up, lean out, set PR’s in the gym, and learn how to properly fuel your body to achieve your goals, then we hope you will join us for our next 52 Day Shred Challenge!
Scroll down to learn more about the #52DayShred program, how it works and a few testimonials from our participants from the first round!
As a full-time public relations professional and a part-time CrossFit coach, finding a flexible way to fuel my body was critical. And as somebody who has lost 70 pounds over the last couple years, I am pretty well-versed in every kind of diet out there. The 52 Day Shred was the perfect meeting of the minds for me — flexible dieting let me focus on eating healthy foods, but also gave me options on those days that kept me on the road, in the office or on my feet without sacrificing my goals. Or, you know, days that I just needed a piece of pizza. Two parts of the program stuck out for me as critical wins: first, checking in with Leah every week helped ease any anxiety about if I was doing this “right” and made sure I had personalized advice — hey, even coaches need coaches. And Sarah and the rest of the private Facebook group provided awesome support, accountability, and a safe place to share our challenges and victories. Over the course of the Shred, I traveled, went to a wedding, hit a post-injury strength PR — and still lost pounds and inches! I feel more confident in my body heading into swimsuit season, but I also feel more confident in my ability to fuel myself — whether it’s going for a new squat personal record, or prepping for a day that I have an 0600 call time in the office followed by teaching back-to-back evening classes. For anybody looking to make a positive change in their health and body, I can’t recommend this program enough. – Becka D.
Can I just say thank you? Leah, Sarah, thank you so much. I love the flexibility and the results! I was stopped 3 different times today and told how good I look (and they weren’t talking about my makeup;-) I’ve lost 8lbs and it really feels really really good. Loving this 52DS. – Meredyth M.
The 52 Day Shred was a fun, supportive, & guided way for me to learn about IIFYM & flexible dieting. Prior to the Shred I had followed more rigid programs and saw success, but was looking for more flexibility in my diet while not sacrificing performance in the gym. Checking in with Leah every week helped me stay on track and made me feel like I had my own personal nutrition coach. Over the course of the Shred I lost fat, gained muscle, & for the first time in my life saw abs! – Cynthia B.
I have struggled with my body image and weight since I was a teenager. Then in 2011, I weighed my most – 206lbs. I moved to DC and started walking everywhere; this boost in LISS dropped me 15lbs in two years. When I joined CrossFit South Arlington (CFSA) in December 2015, I weighed 180lbs. I had been eating paleo for a few years and dabbling in running on and off. Through CFSA I continued to improve my relationship with food by participating in their in-house nutrition program that is based on the Whole30 lifestyle. I dropped another 20ish by eating the healthiest I ever had and working out 5 days a week, but my progress at the gym and with my weight loss plateaued. I know both Sarah and Leah from CFSA; to be honest they are my role models. When I learned of their joint #52DayShred program, I had to participate! (I think I may have been the first one to sign up.) This experience has taught me that I can consume carbs, and not gain tons weight. I can drink wine and beer, and not gain weight. I learned under Paleo and Whole30, I was eating more fat than I needed and I was eating half the amount of protein my body needs. Leah, Sarah, and macros have taught me how to properly fuel my body to meet my personal goals and my gym goals. It’s hard, but you can lose weight, keep lean mass, AND get stronger – trust me, I am living it. In the grand scheme of things, 52 days is nothing. It’s a little minuscule blip in our larger lives. However, it is the perfect amount of time to learn about yourself (mind, body, and spirit), and introduce macro based fueling into your life. I came in with zero knowledge of macros while others participated having previously done macro programs. As this #52DayShred is coming to an end: I am down 9lbs, lost almost 2 inches in my waist (and more inches in other places of my body), and hit multiple PRs in the gym. I still see the 206lb woman in the mirror, daily. I think I always will. But this 159lb woman is healthier, stronger, and truly happy with herself. I highly recommend the #52DayShred to anyone. It’s an incredible experience and absolutely life changing. – Meredith P.
