Free Class Saturday at 11AM Come try CrossFit before our next round of Beginner’s Classes start!
September Beginner’s Classes start Wednesday Sept 4 – at 7A or 6:30P
Monday’s schedule we will have class only at 9A and 10A due to labor day. Yes it is the start of our testing week, yes the timing is bad, yes we WILL be 1RM High Bar Back Squatting and doing the Hang Power Clean and Burpee WOD – Come in and CRUSH your previous 1RM!
When you first start CrossFit, we discuss goals – long term, short term and otherwise. We discuss how you’re going to get there and what you want to achieve. While most of us do well by making goals and setting ourselves up to achieve them, some of us don’t do well that way. Considering this, the best goal for some is no goal at all.
A famous quote from Leo Babuta says: “The common belief: ‘You’ll never get anywhere unless you know where you’re going.’ This seems so common sensical, and yet it’s obviously not true if you stop to think about it. Conduct a simple experiment: go outside and walk in a random direction, and feel free to change directions randomly. After 20 minutes, an hour…you’ll be somewhere! It’s just that you didn’t know you were going to end up there. And there’s the rub: you have to open your mind to going places you never expected to go. If you live without goals, you’ll explore new territory. You’ll learn some unexpected things. You’ll end up in surprising places. That’s the beauty of this philosophy, but it’s also a difficult transition.”
Many of you are exploring new territory simply by being here, and you’re living a CrossFit motto, “unknown and unknowable.” Many of us are doing things we never expected to do in a million years. We’re achieving so far above what we ever dreamed that we’ve surpassed what we once considered “realistic” goals. We can make new goals, or we can live in the moment. Surprise yourself continually, work beyond your potential, live for today, congratulate yourself on what you’ve accomplished and keep pushing. You’ll end up much further than you ever dreamed.
