It’s a new year, you’ve got a resolution to get fit and nothing is going to get in your way.
You get your gym clothes out the night before, you set your alarm for 5:45 am to make the 6 am class, and you get to bed early so you’re ready to start the day nice and early with a great workout.
The alarm goes off and you immediately think about how warm and cozy your bed is, how you haven’t been to the gym in like 2 months and how hard the WOD is going to be.
You turn the alarm off, roll over, get an extra hour of sleep and regret it the rest of the day.
Then, you do the same thing the next day.
And the next day.
You see where I’m going with this I hope.
Whether you’re a member at Cróga or another gym, I’m sure there are plenty of you following along that are feeling kinda guilty right now because this is exactly how your year started.
Maybe you’re not a morning person, so instead of your warm cozy bed you use the “I’ve gotta get this one more email done. Whoops, I missed the 5:30 pm class and the 6:30 pm class is too late, I guess I’ll just hafta miss today” excuse.
Either way, I’m here today to tell you that you need to quit with the excuses.
Yes, I know CrossFit (or just going to the gym) is hard.
It’s a hell of a lot harder than sleeping in or sitting at your desk surfing Facebook and writing emails.
And yes, I know that when you’ve been out of the gym for more than a week or two that coming back is difficult because you don’t feel like you are going to perform as well as you used to and you’re going to be sore for a couple days following your training.
But you just gotta do it.
You need to just show up.
We promise that we’ll take care of the rest for you, just like we always have and always will.
We’ll greet you with a big smile.
We’ll have a proper warm up and some mobility put together.
We’ll have an awesome workout waiting and possibly some strength work too, you never know.
Most importantly, after you’re done, no matter how difficult it was to wake up early or leave the office on time to make it to class, you’ll be glad you showed up.
The hardest part of sticking to a training programing is maintaining regular attendance.
Those that attend more frequently and with regularity see the most improvement.
Those that skip the most days and don’t put the work in see the least improvement or possibly regression in health & fitness.
We promise we’ll always do our part, now all that we ask is that you do yours…
