We hear the frustration in your voice when you say that you haven't lost enough weight yet, your arms aren't bigger enough yet, or you haven't mastered the power clean yet. You'll get there. Just keep going and while you're going keep your eyes open for the awesome things around you.
Every year the Reebok CrossFit Games is held sometime in July. The CrossFit Games is the culmination of a competition designed to find the fittest man and woman on the planet. To give the broadest population the opportunity to prove their fitness they have to cast really large net. This first stage of the competition is called the CrossFit Games Open, and it is held at the end of February and beginning of March each year.
Have you noticed that every time you express interest in something on the internet you're blasted with Facebook ads for similar products?

Anne had never spent any time in the gym before and our structured training program has her seeing progress day after day. Anne is amazing and we're so glad she's a part of our fitness family.
Goals are important. It's not always important that you reach them but it's important that you have them. They give you something to work toward and keep you progressing. Not everyone is great at setting goals or at setting goals that are helpful in pushing you toward progress. This is why we help our members set S.M.A.R.T. goals.
