Each of us have our reasons for being a CrossFitter. So ask yourself “why do I crossfit?” When is the last time that you set back and truly evaluated your progress? Are you 100% satisfied with where you are? Do you even know where you want to be? DO YOU HAVE YOUR GOALS WRITTEN DOWN? If you dont, you are just wondering around aimlessly. Take a look at where you want to be with your fitness. Do you just want more energy? Are you just getting in shape for a cruise? Are you wanting to lose weight/inches, just wanting to get stronger or DO YOU WANT TO COMPETE IN THE GAMES….AGAIN, WHAT BRINGS YOU TO THE GYM? I challenge you to evaluate where you are, where you want to be, and how long do you see yourself getting there.
Once you have your goals written down post them where you can see them on a daily basis. Its important that you look at them often. Put up post it notes on your mirror, in your car, on the fridge. Tell yourself over and over again that you CAN reach these goals, you ARE strong, and before you know it you will be setting NEW goals.
If you do not know how to set obtainable goals, get with one of the coaches, they will be happy to help you set and reach your goals. Also, read books about goal setting, you will surprise yourself when you start writing your goals down. You need to have a goal that FIRES YOU UP SO MUCH YOU CANT SLEEP.
Homework (ALL COACHES AND ALL MEMBERS) due Monday 11/21/11: (50 burpee penalty for late work) Post ONE short term goal and the date in which you will accomplish this goal. DO IT…..YOU CANT REACH A GOAL IF ITS NOT WRITTEN DOWN! See it and BELIEVE IT!
