5 Unconventional Ways of Thinking

Let’s be honest these workouts are brutal. There is only one pre-requisite to CrossFit. Do you know that when you come to workout it’s going to be hard?? Yes. Good. Good. For me I always think about doing just”one more rep”. No matter how bad I feel or how much it hurts, I can always do one more.

Here are a couple others ones that I thought about or have seen online. Pick one and drill it into your psyche.

1. “Welcome the pain”

Don’t be afraid when things get tough. Push yourself to accept what is coming instead and know that you’re going to grow from it. It’s called bringing sexy back.

2. “Look forward to feeling good”

Ask yourself how you want to feel later only. Forget about how you’d feel in between. You always feel amazing afterword! Some sooner than later!!

3. “Stop moving forward, take a step back instead”

Go back for a second, re-evaluate your goals, and remember your WHY. This effectively gives you the motivation to move forward.

4. “Failure is your best friend”

Embrace failure, for it will give you the best and most meaningful lessons you actually need to move forward. That being said, failure is not the end. Re-group and think about what you would do differently next workout.

5. ”Have fun”

Don’t take life so seriously. Laugh at your mistakes. Never sweat the small stuff. Just have fun, and be thankful for what you have, and that everything is going to be okay anyway. Its just exercise!

We would like to thank one of our sponsors of the Baseline Challenge…Fields of Green Lawn Care. Not only is Dave’s commitment evident in his results with CrossFit (losing 10lbs and 2% BF) his commitment is also evident in the way he treats his own clients. He told me the other night that people chose him over other companies because he knows everyone by first and last name. It’s a commonalty that we both share.

Thank you Fields of Green for your continued support to CrossFit Naples! For more information visit Fields of Green’s website HERE

I should’ve made time

By: Mindy Coby

It’s rare, but there are days when I literally have to talk myself into putting on my Olympic shoes and getting on the WOD floor.

It’s not that I don’t love CrossFit, I most certainly do. I’ve loved it from day one. I love the community at my box, what it’s done for my body, my health, and my mind. Short of God and family, it’s basically the greatest thing ever.

But just because I love it doesn’t mean I always like CrossFit.

Sometimes, when I look up at the clock during a workout, I think, “I could just stop, its not like anyone is here to notice.”

But then I remember why I bought those Olys in the first place. I remember that burning desire that I’ve had for months on end to achieve my goals. My desire never leaves, it just becomes temporarily masked by fatigue, or a busy schedule, or whatever excuse I have that day.

The days I want to be there the least, are the days I gain the most.

I learn to push without a crowd or a coach. I can actually hear the sound of the bar dropping, the whip of the rope, and my own breathing. CrossFit bring me clarity. Me against me, against the clock, against a whiteboard.

No matter how I walk in, I leave accomplished. I can go about the rest of my day that is still waiting for me, no worse off than it was before, and I can rest assured that at night that I won’t have to deal with thinking about how, “I really should’ve made time.”
