Tis The Season For Goals

     Ahhh Yes. January. The first month of the year. When many people come out and claim “NEW YEAR. NEW ME!!” It really is a fantastic thought that at the beginning of the new year we can just wipe the slate clean and start all over. As if the habits of years past are not still there and we will just magically wake up on January 1st a totally new person. It is simply a fairy tale. The hard truth is that it is just not that simple. There needs to be a plan. A process. A way to execute. For a lot of popular New Year’s Resolutions might sound like this: “I want to lose X amount of weight.” “I want to go to the gym every day.” “ Be happier – i don’t wanna be so negative.” Now don’t get me wrong, these are all great goals and I am not trying to knock them but more often than not they set the person up for failure. Setting goals without a plan is like putting chicken in a crockpot and forgetting to turn it on. The thought is there but without action there is no result. Start thinking about the outcome of the goal. Outcomes are where you start to gain clarity around what actions you’ll need to take to achieve your goal. You know that you have to do a certain amount of work consistently to get there but the idea of that work is not “sexy.” So we focus on the goal! The human brain is actually designed to give you positive feedback when... read more

Picking the Right Protein Powder

  Lets start with this – Do you need to supplement with protein powder? No you don’t. In fact for the most part protein found in real food is better for you than any supplement on the market because it’s not processed. However, trying to get in enough protein in our busy lives can sometimes be unrealistic. We’re not always going to have the time or ability to just chow down on some lean chicken breast.    Protein powders can be a quick easy way to get in some extra protein to help achieve a nice lean body. Whey is by far the most popular protein supplement because it has been shown to promote muscle growth and fat loss. It is digested and absorbed faster than other proteins, making it the ideal choice to consume either immediately before or after a workout. That said, not all protein powders are created equal.   Since protein powder is already processed, you want to be sure to find the best protein powder available for your body. My #1 recommendation is always read the ingredients. The more ingredients there are generally means there’s more than protein going in to your body, much of it being fillers and fake sweeteners. If you can’t pronounce the ingredients that’s probably a bad sign.    When people look for protein powders they are very concerned about the price and getting more for their money. We started carrying a new protein at the box called SFH that’s probably a lot more money than you’re used to spending on protein. But it has 3-4 ingredients, all of which  we can pronounce.... read more

Two things that made me laugh this week

When Emily wrote about me spreading happiness in the gym & When a member in that same week said: “you’re always so bubbly and energetic”. I laugh because that’s nothing I’ve ever been called before. Depression runs deep in my family and following puberty, I quickly fell into a big pattern of negativity/depression. It becomes second nature at a certain point – and it’s always there as an excuse. I’m not saying I was never happy (or that I don’t still have my days) but I was definitely depressed more often than not. I write this because I want people to realize how much it is in your power to change your mindset and that you don’t have to naturally be an energetic person to become one. Sometimes having something run in your family is the worst possible thing because it makes you think it’s in your blood and that there’s nothing you can really do; it’s just who you are and you accept it at face value. And that (to me) is the most amazing part of CrossFit. It can be just a workout for some… but for others, it can completely transform you as a person. I think the biggest reason for this is because it truly makes you want to be the best version of yourself. You want to feel good, you want to look good, you want others to see those changes in yourself. Being around a community who wants the same encourages you to try harder to not just accept something because ‘it runs in your family’. It can be so eye-opening to see... read more
