Clif Bar Seasonal Flavors & College Incentive

The other day, I posted about the new Clif Z bar flavor - Full Moon Brownie (available Oct 1) - brownie with white chocolate, mmmmm.  Last year they had seasonal flavors - Cranberry Orange, Spiced Pumpkin Pie and Iced Gingerbread, and this year they swapped out the Cranberry Orange for Peppermint Stick.




There are 16 year round flavors of CLIF Bars - what is your favorite? I like the Peanut Toffee Buzz for pre-workouts. It contains caffeine which I like for pre-workout but not for everyday.  Each flavor is made with organic, natural ingredients such as oats, fruit, and nuts. CLIF BARs also serve as a good source of protein and fiber, which help the body digest carbohydrates slowly to deliver sustained energy. They are good for long activities!

CLIF will be donating 1% of net sales from the seasonal flavors to Winter Wildlands Alliance, the first and only national organization that works on behalf of skiers, snowboarders, snowshoers, winter hikers and other outdoor adventurers to address national issues that impact our winter wildlands.

CLIF also has an incentive going on for college students this semester so that they get outside and be active! Students who follow @ClifBar on Twitter and post their active #StudyBreak will be eligible to receive a CLIF BAR Energy Pack, containing great-tasting CLIF BARs for sustained energy, plus a selection of items designed to make outdoor activity more fun.

A few fun facts from CLIF: 
Exposure to parks and other green spaces has been shown to improve the ability to focus and concentrate. Environment & Behavior, 2001

Evidence suggests that physical activity improves self-image, social skills and cognitive functioning, all while reducing symptoms of anxiety. Public Health Report, 1985

Compared with exercising indoors, exercising in natural environments amps up feelings of revitalization, increases energy, helps you relate better with others and is a serious stress-buster. Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry, February 2011

The part of your brain that controls long-term and spatial memory actually gets bigger with exercise, and, when it comes to the hippocampus, bigger is definitely better. In one study, physically fit people were found to have larger hippocampi and performed 40 percent better on memory tests. University of Illinois, University of Pittsburgh, 2011.

Stay tuned for a giveaway on some seasonal flavors!

  1. I am Ryan "Energizer" Ehmann, owner of Altitude Fitness and I’ve been out of shape several times in my life, so beat down – tens of thousands of dollars in debt, depressed and my self-esteem so crushed that I was afraid to go out in public. I turned to the fitness industry as the vehicle to heal my mind and body, and that’s when my dreams began to become a reality. The power of a proven fitness program is life changing so just imagine how much more you could give to your family, career and friends if you were on top of your game?



    There is a champion in everyone…including YOU!

My fat loss training system have taken me 28,882 hours and 10 years of personal training to Master it so years ago I quit working at Gold's Gym as the Fitness Manager and opened a small, private workout facility to educate people about foods, fitness and lifestyle. Altitude fitness is a fun family atmosphere that people come as they are in grey sweets, white T-shirts, no make-up and they are accepted as a team member who want to learn and get in shape. No one is judged, it's not a fashion show and no matter your health or fitness shape you are a part of the Fat Loss Team working together.
