Getting Geared up for 2014

New Years is 2 days away...are you ready?  Are you ready to take on another adventure and continue this amazing journey you are on?  The start of a new year can be both nerve wracking and exciting, but we want you to head into the new year with an open mind and open heart, ready to be more fierce than ever.  How do you prepare for this next year?  Set goal!  Take a look at where you are and where you want to go and work from there.  Remember, there is no set time when you need to reach the "end" of your journey, because there should be no end!  You are constantly evolving along with your mind and body, so enjoy the ride! 

We wanted to give you a little guidance heading into the new year.  Below is a link to a document that will help you take a look at and evaluate where you are across a broad spectrum of things from your personal health to basic things in CrossFit.  The first part, with all the numbers, is solely for you.  This is something we want you to come back to every 3 months and reevaluate.  In the second two sections is where you are going to pick 3-4 things from part 1 and describe exactly what you'd like to work on, and then of course how you're going to improve upon these things and create an action plan.  These things are all things you can talk to a coach about as well, to help guide you in the direction of success.  After all, these are your goals and we want nothing more than to help you succeed!  Here's to a healthy, happy and successful 2014!

If it's Worth Doing, It's Worth Writing Down

When is the last time you really thought about your goals?

  As a coach, I often talk about the idea that if it’s worth doing, it’s worth writing down.  This doesn’t just mean your grocery list, a daily “to-do” list, or a bucket list of things you’d like to do before you pass.  This includes things like your goals.  Whether they are fitness/CrossFit related goals, health goals, personal or career goals, it’s a good idea to write them down.  Every month I sit down and look at my goals and really try to evaluate what I'm doing and how I am going to accomplish a goal I have set for this week, this month or even within the next year. Where am I?  What am I doing to be proactive towards these goals?  What is working and what isn't working?

Does it take time? Sure, but then it's done and you can go back and look at what you've written down and continue to keep yourself accountable.  Don't make your goals so easy that you are constantly achieving them and wondering why you are always achieving them (you should really only achieve about 50% of your goals!), but don't make them so lofty (like you're going to be the first person to build a staircase made of marble and oak to the moon...) that you never achieve them.  Have something you are always working towards and is always in your reach, but you have to work your butt off every single day for!

Have fun with your goals, write them down, make changes to them periodically, and enjoy the process of learning and growing with them.  Have questions about goal setting?  Ask a coach, we love to talk about goals!
