Life Hack:  Get a coach- save time

Life Hack: Get a coach- save time

Life is busy.  I don’t need to tell you that.  

I have met with hundreds of people who are all telling me that they are trying to get in better shape, better health, look better naked,avoid medical bills, get off of medication or find the energy to keep up with kids of grand kids.  We all want some or most of these things, but there are some things standing in the way. With the folks that I talk to.the number one impediment that almost everyone faces is that…

“Life.Is.Busy.”

I hear it through things like:

-Work takes so much time.

-I am busy taking my kids from event to event.

-I don’t have time for me.

-I don’t have time to figure it out.

-I can’t spend x hours in the gym everyday.

-And the list goes on.

More and more I see folks trying to do “Life Hacking” to help deal with being busy all the time.  How can I do more, with less time, less effort etc. ?

For fitness or physical performance the key ‘life hack’ is a coach.

Did you ever notice both actors and professional athletes have coaches?  I know of no faster way to achieve any physical goal than getting a good coach and following their direction.  The more interaction you have with your coach, the faster your progress will be and the better your results. This is why I highly recommend private training to someone who has specific goals and timelines, very specific needs (an injury, ailment or disability), or a highly variable schedule.  

CrossFit PTC is really about Coaching people.  

We coach in class, online and privately (one on one or a small group)

In group classes we coach movement, motivation, fun, and accountability. Our group classes are designed for folks of all levels, and everyone gets a great workout. A coach helps you scale or adjust the workout to your needs and abilities.  I think of it as a sit down meal at an event.  You can choose the chicken or steak, but the general plan is made in advance by someone else so that it will be good for as many people as possible. We build the program for an avatar client and apply it to everyone either in CrossFit classes or Shred.  We often do group nutrition challenges as a way to coach nutrition in a similar group fashion.

Online we coach remotely via programming, measurement, video and electronic interaction.  This can be either individually designed or part of a group. This is great for someone who is gone more than they are here, or are trying to achieve a specific goal, but unavailable for private training.  This individual design will get you to your goals faster than group, but it misses interaction and doesn’t have the same amount of accountability as one on one.

Private training is the full meal deal. The Lamborghini of the fitness world.  It is where you get the full attention of a coach. The focus is on you, your needs and your goals.  It is efficient, effective, individually designed for you, and based on your schedule. Going on a trip?  Your coach plans for that. Eating out? Coach plans for that. Private training is bespoke. Many times it is even more cost effective based on time commitment and you can probably do more in a 40min private training session than an hour group just because it is focused on you.

So how do you know what is right for you?

That is the easy part.  We sit down in a free consultation, look at where you are now, where you are trying to get, your timelines, your lifestyle, your budget and any other issues (health, family, etc).  Together we come up with a plan that is right for you. It might be nutrition training and planning through a group, or it might be some combination of Private and Group exercise class.  You are an individual, and your plan is individual to you.

Chase Your Goals, not Rabbits

Chase Your Goals, not Rabbits

Here’s why you have a coach:

There’s too much out there. You know you can’t do everything. A lot of it looks–or sounds–good.

I’m talking about diet plans, supplements, workout programs, or even daily WODs.

But you can’t do it all, and trying to do too much will actually set you back. I’m guilty!

Everyone knows about “overtraining”, and we’re all scared of getting injured. But most don’t realize there’s an optimal amount of training to do, just as there’s an optimal amount of food to eat.

Too little, and your progress will be slow. But doing too many workouts has the exact same effect.  Especially if you are not able to recover from them. We choose CrossFit for our group training because it’s a great balance: it’s not too little, and it’s not too much. But even as hard as CrossFit workouts are, many people are tempted to do more: to add a little “recovery run”, or even to do multiple workouts in a day. These are NOT necessarily the path to success for you. More is NOT better. Better is better.

You have a coach. That coach is your filter.

Your coaches are here to tell you what’s optimal, not what’s minimal.

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.

Here’s a link to book the goal review. It’s part of your membership!

What we DON’T want is for you to have to guess.

We don’t want you to try fad diets just because someone else is doing them. We don’t want you to drink a gallon of milk a day just because you saw it online (truth: this was a CrossFit fad back around 2011. We didn’t join that one.) We don’t even want you to do what everyone else in the gym is doing, because their program is theirs. It’s not yours. Train in a group, tailor individually: that’s what our coaches do.

You have a coach.

They’re a filter.

Next time you see a workout online and think, “oooooh, that looks spicy! Gotta try it after the 5:00AM class tomorrow!” — ask your coach if it fits your goals. Take it from a banged-up meathead who learned the hard way!
