We wanted to announce that Peter Perez won the Paleo Challenge. While the challenge ended a while back, I felt it important reveal the results. Allison Cronin finished 2nd and Sarah Perez finished 3rd. I apologize for the late announcements. As you know, we had a lot of unexpected developments as the challenge was coming to a close. Thanks for your understanding. It is important to note that since the challenge, Peter has continued to live a Paleo lifestyle. He has also created a blog where he keeps track of his paleo exploits.

We have recently partnered with the Exceptional Foundation to provide a venue for an exercise field trip. If all goes well we are going to start hosting these visits on a monthly basis. This Thursday we will be hosting a group of people as they come and workout out at our gym. The event will begin at 2:45 and will last about an hour. If you would like to help please let me know. We are really looking forward to working with these folks.


  1. Great job, Peter, Allison, and Sarah!

  2. congrats, y’all!!! peter, you said you would post the link. 😉

    it’s not like i can lift a school bus off my head yet – maybe a big wheel? – but i have also been trying to follow paleo since I started, bc for the first time in my life, i can eat food and go do stuff and i won’t get sick. i guess for that reason i think it’s a big opportunity to help other people and not just a fad movement or a crossfit thing. i am a generally skeptical person and a former chicken-stealing militant vegan.

  3. Glad to see it’s helping you, Laura. I never really felt bad before, I but I can honestly say I feel better now that I’m a paleo person. My blog is at: ContempoPaleo.com . It’s really just musings on what I’ve eaten, some fitness (Mutt Strut), and why you should do paleo.
