Some motivation for 2013, and tell me again What’s your excuse?

Ok folks, we are about to begin 2013, and as I’ve mentioned in class, I’m issuing a challenge to motivate you all to take charge and hit the necessary elements of taking your fitness to the next level.  Those elements are:

  • Diet
  • Doing the work
  • Pushing the envelope
  • Educating yourself
  • Results don’t lie

Buy-in for this challenge is $75.  This is a bet that you are placing on yourself!  You have a direct influence on the outcome.  Deadline to declare participation and put your money where your fitness is is January 11th.  The judging will begin when we all return to the gym on January 8th.

Some of you have done this before, some it will be your first experience of a challenge like this.  The overall goal is to have a focused time period that you can change your life by taking specific actions in how you approach your fitness.  The overview of the program is in this LINK.

For those that sign up, I’ll be doing the measurements and body-fat testing during the first week that we return.  I’ll communicate a schedule as soon as I get it hammered out.

 

If you are looking for an excuse, this guy lists out several that may work for you.

I just really like this video.  Especially when he talks about counting on you at any given moment

I also enjoy this one, despite how you feel about Arnold, they guy has been successful as heck.

Six for Six . . . .

This is a short posting, but I wanted to make sure that everyone knows that of the folks that didn’t miss class due to the holiday hustle and bustle, we went six for six on setting new squat PR’s.

I really just can’t say how proud I am of the folks that have been showing up and putting out on gaining real strength during the past nine weeks.

I hope everyone is preparing for a stronger, fitter, and more exciting new year.

I don’t like the word “resolution”

I’ll tell you why I don’t like the word a bit later in the post. . . If your’e doing what I’m doing at this time of year, you are trying to find that one light that is causing the entire set to not turn on.   Don’t worry, it shouldn’t take long to get to this level.

Once you get the lights, garland, elf on the shelf, the tree, and make the eggnog, it’s time to sit down and enjoy some of the glory of the Christmas season.  It’s time to celebrate the birth of Christ, spend time with family, and of course loosen your belt and watch some football during some sort of a food induced coma.

Don’t forget to take time to enjoy the season and the associated food coma but remember that shortly after the festivities are over with, it’s time to start thinking of the new year, a new you and the changes to your healthcare plans.

It’s a dirty word “resolution”

The reason that I don’t like it is because it rarely seems to stick, with me, or anyone that I know.  Instead of resolutions, I like to think of things in life changes, and establish plans to make those changes permanent.

We have some slots open at CrossFit Pflugerville in all of our classes.  If making a life change in your fitness is something that you would like to do, I have an offer for you.  I am offering a 50% reduced rate for 3 months for the next 5 people that sign up to join one of those classes (limited to availability – contact me at the gym phone number if you are interested).  After that 3 months, for those 5 people, the rates will continue at a 25% discount from the published rates on the website.

For those members, as well as all of my existing members, I’m going to do another challenge, but it will be a bit shorter in duration (6 weeks).  I’m still developing the full format of the challenge, but there will be the typical fitness components as well as an education component with it.  There will be fitness goals associated with body composition, as well as educational elements, and and some comfort challenges along the way.
