Training Layout Dec 26 - Jan 1

Christmas has come and gone, which is hard to believe. Then of course I look out the window to mounds of fresh snow and realize that it’s definitely the case. I hope all of you had a chance to enjoy the holidays. Enjoy the snow. And to share it with people you care about, as family isn’t defined by your bloodline, it has no boundaries. 

 

In the gym, the holiday season is always special. So many of you have expressed their gratitude, wanting to thank our team of trainers for how we’ve positively impacted your quality of life. And it’s humbling to hear, and, never gets old. It’s THE reason I have can honestly say, this is the best job in the world. Over the next few weeks, I truly hope that we can accomplish 2 extremely important things. 

 

1. Take care of our family. What I mean by that is…. Keeping everyone engaged and motivated in their training and health is a numbers game. It’s absolutely impossible to have everyone on the same page at the same time. The downside is, especially over the month of December, many of you get derailed with work, snow, and life. What I’d love is to get all of you back on the train! Know, that there’s a team of people that rely on you. We all count on each other. At the start of January we’ll be kicking off a month long nutrition challenge. It’s a great way to get back on track, and reverse some of those holiday habits that have crept their way in to the routine. 

 

2. Extend our family. People always ask me if January we see a big spike in memberships. And it’s not to say that we don’t get new members over that time, but it’s not as many as people think. Not too sure if it’s an intimidation factor. A commitment factor. Monetary…… I can go on. But, for those that are thinking about starting up. I’d like to share a few key points about what we do. 

-We are just regular people, not super human exercise crazed animals. We come in all different shapes, sizes, and abilities. Some are young, some are older. Some take CrossFit and training seriously, others still don’t remember half of the names of what we do 2 years in to their training. 

-To the core, every member here values their fitness, and is willing to work towards improving it. It’s really that simple. Some place a higher priority on their fitness then others, but they all are motivated to be fitter then yesterday. 

-Nobody cares how fit you are, either when you start, or when you are 5 years in. Seriously. It’s all about the commitment to moving better, improving, and “trying”. When I say don’t care, I really mean it’s not a competition and we don’t judge. Coaches meet once a week and review the past week and plan a week ahead. I can assure we are never discussing who’s the fittest. We are analyzing how you move. How to improve what you do. 

 

So, if you are thinking about taking the plunge, let’s talk about how we can be a part of making that happen. Contact us today- we offer a free orientation/assessment before you pay a penny. info@opusathletics.com.

 

As for our members that kept reading…. 1 more week until we are back on track with our usual templates. This week starts with a long one to sweat out all the bad stuff from the weekend… or good stuff, depending on how you look at it. And we keep things rolling all week long as we fill up your plate with class jam packed worth of movements.

 

Enjoy
