For fitness or physical performance the key ‘life hack’ is a coach.
At CrossFit PTC, our coaches want to talk to you every 3-4 months. One on one, in person. We want to put you on the InBody; ask about your goals; review your progress; and then give you the best possible prescription.
Sooo…you feel a little blah, perhaps stuckIt happens, we all hit a plateau once and awhile. Or, for some reason you missed a week or two and you feel like you are going backwards…
The hardest part of fitness is getting started.
We ask the questions of ourselves: Where do I go? What is the right workout and nutrition plan for me? What if I don’t know what to do? Will I stick out? Will I be embarrassed? What if this doesn’t work for me?
I don’t know about you, but I can often identify with Dory, the famously forgetful fish in “Finding Nemo” and “Finding Dory.” I try to focus, get distracted and spend a lot of time not doing the things I want to get accomplished. Like Dory, I swim around in a circle, and wow there’s the castle again.
When is the last time someone put your artwork on the refrigerator? Do you remember how good it felt to have Mom or Dad put something that we did/or achieved on the refrigerator (or mantle, wall or their desk)? Unbeknownst to you it triggered a little hit of dopamine and encouraged you to try to do it again.
The industrial economy is over. For many reasons that is a good thing. Heavy industry is a big polluter. Heavy industry relies on humans behaving like cogs in a wheel. Heavy industry suppresses the earning potential of the workforce. But heavy industry also provided good jobs, with health benefits and a way to stop working at age 65. As industrial jobs disappear, so do the securities they carried.
Have you ever thought something was impossible? Have you ever looked at a workout and said “No Way” or that will take more than (XX:00 time)? Have you ever wondered if it was possible to do some movement y times unbroken?
One of my daughters plays the piano…I know I said open gym, just hang with me. Anyway, one of my daughters plays the piano. I enjoy hearing her play. That wasn’t (and still sometimes isn’t) always the case. It seems that playing the piano takes practice. It is a skill that is honed through repetition.
Hey Coach, I am not seeing the results (as fast as I want)-I can tell you a simple way to feel more healthy, and perform better. It is really no secret, and there are some times when it is a bit more complicated, but most of the time it is pretty simple, although not easy.
Hey family, starting a new gig. Answering some questions in a quick/blog style format. My goal will be to at least once a week put out an answer (or at least my answer) to a question I hear a lot from folks. If you want your question addressed…ask me.
