How time flies. It feels like every day is a Sunday. A chance to look ahead, and a chance to reflect on the weeks past. When it comes to training, it’s all about what’s in front of you. Sure, what you’ve done is critical to your success, but, your success only lies in your ability to move forward, and that is what you need to look ahead to. That is what you need to cherish, and what should spark your ability to want to thrive. When you oversee a training crew of over 100, there is always reason to celebrate, but there are always a few that are going through a road block, a tough time. And I’ve been there. I’ve had my highs, and had my lows, and truth be told, it’s the lows that define you. What you need to know is this. What makes us feel alive is sweating. Like it or not, exercise, sweat, endorphins, are all things that make us feel good. When you get out of your routine, you lose those endorphins, and the world closes in. Every week I see that some of you are struggling to make it here. And I wish you knew how much you are missed. There’s a whole team of people that depend on each other. To provide that spark to grind through those tough workouts. To leave the gym a better you. To leave that knowing you are stronger that you were yesterday. And if you have to scale workouts because theres an injury to work around, you are not losing out, you are the big winner. You may not think it to be so, but, I can assure, 10 years of training others, whether privately or in groups, it couldn't be more true. Those that continue to work to improve, whether it’s on a limited basis or it's full steam ahead, are going to be miles ahead than those who stop altogether. Your mind and body need your sweat, need your endorphins. So be here with your Opus family, we are here for you, please be here for us!
As for the week ahead, Monday couldn’t be a more perfect CrossFit day. You’ll need mobility. You’ll need strength. Speed, Power, Skill to make the most of it. But, it will all be over pretty quick! We’ll keep the rest of the week rolling- pushing strength boundaries, endurance, mixed with some skills in there. And a great finish to the week.
Before I sign off, there’s been many asking for Mobility class to go back on the schedule. And I do hear you. It should be there. We are going to start to squeeze it in the schedule here shortly, as well as look in to how we can improve our overall class layout. So, any input on things you’d like from us, now’s a great time to let us know.
Enjoy the week.
