THE OPEN IS OVER!!
THE OPEN IS OVER!!
Regardless if you did the open or not, I hope you take the 5 minutes to do these 3 things. I promise it'll help.
The last 5 weeks have been nothing short of amazing (we will have a recap later tonight). It's also been emotionally and physically exhausting.
Now that it's over, if you take 5 minutes to do these 3 things, you will fuel the next 3-5 months of your fitness journey.
1. DELOAD AND RECOVER THIS WEEK (TIME REQUIRED: 0 MINUTES)
For 5 weeks we've tested and competed instead of trained. We've pushed ourselves to new limits, cheered on (and even cried for) our friends, and put in some serious social hours at the gym.
We aren't machines and it's time to recover. Here's how:
A) Take the workouts at about 75% this week. I want you to move slower and scale a ton. Go through the motions. Sweat a little bit. But bring down the intensity level. If at the end of the workout you know you could have gone considerably harder, then you did it right. I know it's hard to do but it's CRITICAL physically and mentally to do this.
B) Get outside and reset your mind. We always want you here, but you've spent a lot of time here. Don't hesitate to use your fitness doing other things to give your mind a break if you need it! Keep in mind, we put in the time inside the gym to be better at things outside of it.
Look, it's my gym and I freaking love it. BUT, for this week: I have more ROMWOD, dog walks and basketball scheduled than workouts in the gym. It's my own mental reset because starting next week, our team is going to bring you some amazing stuff and it's my responsibility to give you 100%. To do that, I need to recharge and that's OK!
Similarly, make sure you are ready to bring 100% to your training next week.
2. ANSWER A 2 QUESTION SURVEY (TIME REQUIRED: 4 MINUTES)
Our team wants to know 2 things:
1. What one accomplishment would bring you the most joy? (1st pull up, muscle up, 400lb squat, running a marathon, etc.)
2. What is the biggest obstacle preventing you from achieving you answer?
Your responses will shape our plans on both a group and individual level. Setting a tangible goal and working to achieve it is how we keep fitness fun!
3. BOOK 15 MINUTES WITH US (TIME REQUIRED: 1 MINUTE)
"A dream written down with a date becomes a goal. A goal broken down into steps becomes a plan. A plan backed by action makes your dreams come true.”
Telling us what you want and what you need to overcome is 1/3 of the journey. Creating a plan and taking action on that plan is the other 2/3.
That's where our goal setting sessions come in.
After you fill out your survey, you will see a link to book a free goal setting session with us. You don't have to of course, but we HIGHLY recommend it! Or just click here.
Alright friends. Deload, make a plan, come see us, and have a great week!
