A HUGE DAY!!!!

alamocitythrowdown_logo3.jpg

The final numbers are in and we raised over $4,000 for YoungLife!

Yes, I said $4,000! Many people may not remember that we were raising money for YoungLife so I wanted to make sure everyone knew that they helped contribute to a great organization!

Trinity Competitions is so grateful to be able to give to this wonderful ministry and we know that the money will be used for so much good!

I want to thank everyone for making the Alamo City Throwdown go over so well this past weekend! We had our share of bumps in the road and will be making adjustments to our systems so that the next competition is even better. We thank you all for your patience and understanding if you experienced any discrepancies and welcome feedback HERE!

Words cannot adequately describe how humbled I am to have witnessed so much effort from so many people:

  • To God for making this dream a reality!
  • To my wife for supporting, praying for, and constantly encouraging me during the process.
  • To my mom for filling all the athlete bags and being such a clutch supporter
  • To my Head Judge and owner of River City CrossFit, Eric Villarreal for doing way more than I asked him to!
  • To my Director of Competition, Kenny Thompson for overseeing the logistics of the competition like a BOSS.
  • To my Director of Scoring, Sabrina Polanco for overseeing all of the scoring throughout the day.
  • To Brian Pina, for coming in the day before the competition and literally saving the day!
  • To all my judges and volunteers for working their tails off to serve the athletes.
  • To our sponsors for making this event such a great experience.
  • To Adam Leija with YoungLife for becoming a volunteer without me asking!
  • To all the athletes who signed up and competed like champs!
  • To the spectators who came out and cheered on their fellow competitors.

All photos will be posted on www.trinitycompetitions.com in the next few days!

Register for Duality, our two person competition on December 7th! We will be moving all content to our new website from here on out!

We hope they will not have to treat anyone, but it far better to have them and not need them than to need them and not have them!

Tell us about you and your company.

Naked Coconut Eats was founded in 2013. We are the premier Paleo food company in the Greater San Antonio area. We cater to the Alamo city and surrounding communities to deliver fresh, Paleo food every morning. We want to help everyday men, women and children make positive changes in their eating habits that are not only wholesome and good for you, but sustainable.

Naked Coconut Eats specializes in preparing Paleo-inspired breakfasts, lunches and dinners made with fresh ingredients from organic farms and health-conscious distributors. Our balanced meals are prepared by a chef and delivered to easily-accessible locations through the San Antonio area.

Our meals are made with meats, vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds and healthy fats. We also use fresh herbs, spices and seasoning to add flavor and zest to your meals. Our meals are free of grains, legumes, dairy and processed starches and sugars.

Our portion sizes per individual are 6-8 oz of protein, and we fill the rest of your plate with a plethora of veggies, some fruit and good fats. You always have the option to add on extra protein or sides.

How long have you been in business?

We launched our business in July 2013.

Why did you start your company?

We started Naked Coconut Eats, because there was a need to serve and an opportunity to support a community of individuals. The fact is we have a love and appreciation for food, and honestly, we think everyone should. We want it to taste fresh and to be enjoyed. We want breakfast, lunch and dinner to be an experience that people look forward to each day, but also one that makes them feel good.

We embraced the Paleo movement, and we started the company to share amazing recipes, food and treats with San Antonio, and eventually, the world.

What is your favorite thing about what you do?

Our favorite thing about what we do is being able to see lives change through the power of food. There are so many diets, fads and techniques for quick fixes to health. We have seen the Paleo lifestyle truly improve lives from the inside out. We always like to say, “Don’t live to eat, but rather, eat to live.” The cheers for the food that we hear on a daily basis are always great to hear, but the best things to see are the results individuals are achieving every day. Food allows us to create better paths to health and thereby, allows the customers we serve to become better versions of themselves.

What is your favorite CrossFit workout?

Our favorite CrossFit workout is Murph. We love the Hero WODs, because they are so meaningful. Each of these heroes inspires us to push through these WODs, because we think if the strength and courage they demonstrated for our country.
