I created the Food & Fitness Challenge (FFC) in 2011 because I loved sweets. I was in the habit of having a sweet regularly and knew I needed to cut it out. I wanted to feel amazing. So I decided to create a plan that took out the biggest offenders to optimal health, in my opinion: added sugar and artificial sweeteners, alcohol, soy, and gluten. I did it on myself first, and after losing body fat, feeling 100% better, less bloated, and better skin, I knew I had put together a recipe that worked. So I then ran my first FFC at Class One MMA & CrossFit in Brooklyn, where I was coaching CrossFit at the time. Since then I have adjusted and improved the Challenge to get the best results I have seen.

The Food & Fitness Challenge begins with a private nutrition session with me where I take your body composition, and give you individualized nutrition recommendations to follow during the Challenge. Giving these individual recommendations has increased the success rate of all participants.

If youโ€™d like to have me run an FFC in your community, or you would like to be a part of my next one, send me an email!
