Our 30 day nutrition challenge is a chance to kick start 2020 or accelerate the progress you have already made in January. Most nutrition challenges simply restrict food and cause more stress! This is not a super low carb or a ridiculous juice fast.....it is about educating you on how to get your nutrition plan in place to see results but build solid habits.

You can sign up to either fat loss or strength, with both programs resulting in increased energy, better training performance and, most importantly, feeling healthier!

The challenge is based on proven nutrition principles that can be used beyond the 30 days. We will provide a nutrition guide, personalised calories, macros, meal breakdowns, sample meal plans, recipes, and most importantly education over the month. 

If you struggle to lose fat, or if you have hit a plateau in your training or simply want to tighten your nutrition up and feel better, then come join us!

We start on the 1st February but the first 2 days are an introduction and the actual challenge kicks off on the 3rd February.

Price: £75

Want to wait until pay day? Set the start date to the 3rd February and you won't get charged until then.

Don't worry, you'll get full access from the 1st!


How is the challenge run?

A partnership between Sleven CrossFit and pH Nutrition. We have designed a 30 day challenge that you can sign up to regardless of your goal. We will provide a nutrition guide, calories, macros, meal breakdowns, sample meal plans, recipes, and most importantly education over the month. 

This is not a super low carb or a ridiculous juice fast.....it is about educating you on how to get your nutrition plan in place to see results but build solid habits.

Check off the daily and weekly tasks to help build habits and keep you accountable.

What do I actually get?

We deliver a step by step guide through our app with regular content, links and downloads. You receive a nutrition guide, 3 recipe packs and tracking guide, alongside a ton of other resources to help guide you through the challenge. 

We will hold regular Q&A’s to help you crush the challenge.

This is about identifying what your limiting factor is. If you feel that strength is preventing you from making progress in areas such as gymnastics or barbell movements, then strength is the way forward. It is not a “bulk”...don’t worry. It is more about fuelling your training better.

If you want to lean out, drop excess body fat, without having your energy levels nosedive then fat loss is the program for you!

What foods do I have to remove?

No food is “bad” or “good”. We have provided you with a priority food list. If you focus on building your nutrition plan around these foods, you will make progress and feel healthier. The more you eat from the limit table the harder it will be. We will provide you with a food table which we have categorised into anytime foods, training foods and foods to limit.  

So this is not low carb?

No, this is not low carb. It is more "controlled" carb. We want to eat our carbs at the right times to support our energy and training performance.

What if I do not want to track my food?

The challenge is about finding a pattern of eating that works for you. You can use the hand portion control guide if you like. You do not have to track, nor do you have to follow the exact meal structure. But if you do, you will make faster progress. It is a challenge, some parts are not meant to be easy!

Can I do it if I am a vegetarian/vegan?

Yes, absolutely! The principles are exactly the same and the macro calculator will provide you with guidance on how to change your macros.

Do I have to follow the meal structure?

Yes and no!

Let us explain:

One of the biggest areas we see with members is lack of structure. This leads to either mindless snacking as you haven't planned when the next meal is, or you haven't eaten enough so you are hungry. Regular patterns of eating are crucial for fat loss and strength gains.

The meal structure is set as a guide, not a rulebook. Over the course of the challenge, we encourage you to personalise it so it fits your lifestyle.

We are going to ask you to use the RENPHO scales at the gym. You will weigh in at the start and the end. However, you can weigh yourself as much as you want throughout! These are the most accurate scales and provide a consistent measurement. 

Liam, Tom, Nick and Tim will collate body composition data alongside before and after pictures to decide on the best transformation for fat loss and strength. We will also have a spirit of the challenge award.

Open Prep & Power (Half) Hour

Tomorrow is the first day of our 6 week Open Prep programme! If you missed our announcement last week, you can catch-up here.

There are still a lot of details to be finalised as to how the Open is going to work this year given the different levels of lockdown worldwide (even Dave Castro’s 15 minute video on YouTube didn’t really enlighten us as to the finer details as yet). One thing we can assure you is that Sleven will be involved as much as our level of lockdown will allow. As more details come to light, we will keep you informed with the exact details.

MetCon Outdoors

We’ll be introducing some outdoor MetCon classes for you from Monday 29 June. These classes will be available only to paying members on monthly memberships. Due to limited capacity, we will not be allowing new members to join at this time.
