Happy Halloween and a HUGE congrats to everyone that has made it to day 30 of #PALEOctober!!! We’ll be sharing some of the results as well as the comments over the coming week and at the Halloween Hangover / Paleo Wrap up party Saturday night as well as announcing winners!

Whether you took part in PALEOctober or not come by on Saturday!

Details: 6:00-10:00PM at Raincity Athletics
10PM Onwards at London Pub

Costumes Encouraged & BYOB:

This is a pot-luck style party to mark the end of #paleoctober. Participants have been very diligent with their eating and tracking but even if you didn’t complete the challenge this time around, come on down and share a dish. At the last two wrap-up parties some people brought non-paleo treats (Simon‘s favourite is ice cream cake) others cooked up their favourite paleo dish to share.

We will also have a guest list arranged at London Pub so we can make a move around 10pm over to the bar.
Halloween costumes are encouraged!!!!

Simon is the Head Coach and Owner of Raincity Athletics. “Discovering a new level of health has changed my life, not only in how I look feel and perform, but how I feel about myself both inside and out. I want to help as many people as I can discover their ‘athlete within’ no matter what level that may be, which is why I love our slogan: Find Your Fit. Our bodies are nicer than any car, house, or pet we’ll ever own, and yet we constantly abuse them like we can buy another one if it breaks. I strongly believe if we can maximize our physical health and performance it will have a positive affect on our lives in more ways than anyone can imagine.”
