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!

CrossFit Open begins March 6th

In two weeks, one of the most exciting and fun periods in the CrossFit year begins… the CrossFit Games OPEN. Why is it so exciting and fun you may ask? Well, it’s the one time in which ANY CrossFitter, regardless of level or ability to qualify a regional competition, has an opportunity to compete – just for the heck of it. Last year over 60,000 people took part (I wouldn’t be surprised if that doubled)… and got a chance to see themselves ranked on a world-wide scoreboard. Why is this good or a big deal?? It’s TOTALLY unique in the fitness and sport world – and it gives you a chance to be the person on the playing field, not sitting on the sidelines, watching. Putting yourself out there, slightly at risk, is a great way to feel alive, to test your skills and your fitness, and to see just how you stack up to the rest of the world.
Here’s how it will work:Starting on March 6th, CrossFit will announce a new workout every week for 5 weeks. That will become our Competition WOD for Thursdays. Additionally, on Saturday afternoons each week during open gym, we’llget together to whoop it up, push the pedal to the metal, and hit their best marks.

Now in order to participate, you must register, and you do that HERE. Cost $20. It’s well worth the money, just for the opportunity.

So check it out. Get registered. And join CrossFit Naples’ team. We’re REARIN’ to go!

Another New Class Begins on Valentines (9:30)


You’re sucrose, you’re glucose,
You’re fructose and more,
From your head to your feet…
Which are stuck to the floor.

You’re Hershey’s, you’re Snickers,
You’re sweet English Toffee.
If you spit in my cup,
You’ll just sweeten my coffee.

I love you so much
That I’m getting frenetic,
But I can’t even kiss you,
’cause I’m diabetic.
