whole 30

Training Layout Jan 9-15

It’s been an amazing week at the gym. Why? YOU! You’re back! December is never a record breaking month, there’s no denying it. Even with a little lack of attendance, there’s an empty feeling that exists. And it all comes together as to what we’re missing after seeing the gym over the last 5 days… and it’s you. It’s your energy and enthusiasm that was lacking. It was an unbelievable vibe last week. Keep it up. Don’t let it slide. It was a product of all of you that made it that way. So don’t stop now!

 

Have you seen the 2017 goals board? Next time you walk in the gym, you won’t miss it. I’ve seen people nail some goals already, and we are only 1 week in. You’ll also find on the desk upstairs a goals guideline and paper to help you get them done. Maybe you don’t want them up on the whiteboard. You can write them down and give them to coach. If we know what you are striving for, we are going be able to guide you there much quicker. Motivation is really high right now, use it to your advantage and reach heights you never thought possible. 

 

Recruitment time! 

Some of you may have seen that we offered 1 week free  promotion on Facebook for anyone interested in training with us. Most of you know at least 1 person who’s a little bit curious about joining, but for whatever reason, haven’t quite made that plunge. Free is a great motivator. And that’s what we are offering. You and I both know they won’t regret it! Have them email the gym to set up an orientation, which is also free. Once they’ve done that, we can set that up with a free week of training, that will allow them to come to the open gym time slots to do their foundations course. It is too good to be true. So let them know!

 

And lastly, some of you brave souls have embarked on the Opus Vita Challenge. 30 days of clean eating (And drinking) to help reset the body and develop better eating and health habits. If you are interested in joining us, it’s never too late. Here’s our link on Facebook to the group. Please join:https://www.facebook.com/groups/1223537807662865/ It’s a great resource to share ideas, ask questions, and also to find out exactly what we are doing. For some it feels way too strict to do, or perhaps you aren’t quite ready yet. If so, don’t be shy to join us, but with only a few limitations to your diet. Like, 30 days no alcohol. Or 30 days no bread. No sweets, etc… We are surrounding by temptations that sabotage your ability to thrive and be healthy. Rules, although at first seem way too binding, are at times necessary to invoke the change we are desperately demanding. Remember, there’s a difference between a wish and a goal. If you truly wish to be healthier and look better, then be sure to do something about it, not just dream it. Diet is no doubt your key. As you can’t exercise your way out of a poor diet. 

 

Let’s keep rolling, make this week as awesome as last!

 

Coach,

2017 Let's GO!

Happy 2017 to all of us to all of you. I hope everyone had a chance to sit back, reflect back on the past year. And, to think hard and contemplate on how to make the most of what you should feel is going to be an amazing 2017. I hope everyone is ready to blast out a new path this year, I know our crew of coaches are… You with us?

 

I have the luxury of taking almost all of our new clients through an orientations, and during it, I am almost always referencing one expression, and this is having a goal or a wish. I think about this all the time. We all have wishes. And we all have goals. But do not, for a second, confuse the 2. I wish to win the lottery. I say it all the time, you have to play to win, which I sometimes do. But, I have no actual plan to with the lottery. I can’t set benchmarks to achieve along the way to help me actually win. It’s a wish. It’s a nice wish, but nothing more. I have a goal to be healthier at my 41st birthday then I was on my 40th. The ladder truly is a goal. And, it’s a goal that I can accomplish by setting up tangible benchmarks along the way. Measurable things I can accomplish from now until August. Some are simple, like make sure I hit the gym a minimum of 4 times/week. Stretch for a minimum of 30 minutes for 2 days/week. I think you get the point about goals….. 

I want to hear all about your goals. So, by the end of the week I will sheets of paper on the desk upstairs, helping us identify what your goals are for 2017, and how we can help create tangible ways to help you get there. Motivation can come and go, but it’s having the discipline in your life to keep you on track. Having those goals will help you stay disciplined in times that motivation won’t be there. 

 

January just happens to be a nutrition challenge month. We are using a Facebook group to share the information. We call it the Opus Vita Challenge. If you are familiar with a whole 30, this is pretty much it. We try and tie in a point system to keep you on track. As well as this time around we want to create a buddy system to give you even more support. The group link is here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1223537807662865/

To find out more about it, head to that page. If you are not on Facebook, no problem, just give me your fax number and I’ll send you the info ;) Kidding… email me and I can help. 

 

If I were to measure the success of the gym by how well you guys attend classes, and by how well you perform. I would easily say that December is our worst month. 1 month has to be last. And that’s ok. I’m sure we all had a ton of fun over the holidays. January is time take the bull by the horns and get after it. Make a point to tell your coaches your goals. Fill out the form on the coaches desk. Think about what you want to accomplish. And make a point to make it happen. Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right! So be positive and aim high!

 

Last point of motivation for your best year to date. Certain scenarios in life are a numbers game. For example, applying for a job. You can be amazing, but, perhaps someone else happens to be just a little more desirable, so you miss out. Being healthy and fit has nothing to do with anyone else but you. You aren’t competing for a spot on the “Healthy”  team. That team is limitless and always recruiting. It’s up to you to want it. Work for it. Prioritize it. And it can be yours. There really isn’t that much different between those that look back on the year with a lot of success and those who are looking ahead to this year to capture what they missed out on last year. Stay strong, stay humble, and get after it!
