Crossfit Hyperformance Athletics in Savannah: You’re invited to do the Whole Life Challenge

Monday, January 15th, 2018

Whole Life Challenge CrossFit Savannah

Guest Post by Jennifer McKenzie, owner of Crossfit Hyperformance Athletics in Savannah

Fitness Starts With Habits – These Habits work together to make you healthier and happier

We see it everyday. Folks ready to get back in shape, wanting to tone up and have more energy. Parents wanting to be a healthy role model for their kids. As a gym owner – I want that for you too! But what many people do not realize is that before you can get fit – you’ve gotta get healthy.

Being healthy is way more than breaking a sweat a few times a week, although that’s parts of it. Healthy means much more than looking leaner and seeing some muscle. It’s the ability to participate in fully in life, deal with stress, and fight illness. If you rely on medications to make it through the day, you are not healthy. If you need to have a glass of wine or sleep aid to fall asleep, you are not healthy. If you rely on an energy drink at 2pm, that is not healthy either.

Health and fitness are part of the same continuum. Once you are healthy – it’s easy to keep doing the same things to get fit. How do we help people get there? Practice the OTHER habits too.

Activity – sweat for at least 10 minutes a day
Mobility – functional stretching for 10 minutes a day
Hydration – get half your body weight in ounces of water
Nutrition – eat a wide variety of God-made food
Sleep – like 7 hours, develop a consistent routine
Reflection – Pat attention to the wisdom of your own experience

Starting THIS Saturday, Jan. 20 2018, we’ll be practicing these habits for 6 weeks as a team. It’s called the Whole Life Challenge and we welcome anyone that wants to dive into these habits to join us.

Click here join our team.

We kickoff the Challenge at 10am Sat. Jan. 20. Want more information on getting your family happier and healthier? Visit for more information.

Message from Jennifer McKenzie, owner of Crossfit Hyperformance Athletics in Savannah : 

With everyone in back-to-school mode, it’s a great opportunity for Mom and Dad to get back into the groove as well. Crossfit Hyperformance Athletics in Savannah has got some advice on getting that done. Crossfit Hyperformance has a power word to help you transform your habits.

One of the things we often say after all the summer vacations, eating out, and late nights is “I need to get back into a routine.”

But wait! Before you jump back into the same old stuff, take a minute and consider how some of the routines you have now are helping or hurting you.

You are what you routinely do.
