Beyond the comfort zone.

CrossFit is hard work. By definition it’s “constantly varied functional movements executed at high intensity across broad time and modal domains”. But are you really performing with high intensity? When people think of CrossFitters they think of fire breathing athletes who are always giving 110%… and this can be true of many but it’s necessarily true of all. Maybe you’ve been doing CrossFit for a while and feel you aren’t improving. It could be the weight isn’t coming off or you don’t seem to be getting stronger. While nutrition and patience are usually the top contributors to stalls in progress, there’s another variable out there that some don’t consider: you’re not pushing yourself. Do you know what gives up before your body? Your mind. This is true not only of CrossFitters but of any sport. The best athletes in any gym don’t have some magic bodies that don’t feel pain. They know how to push themselves past the pain when the time is right. When 10 reps are hard they don’t put the bar down. They do 5 more reps. “But I don’t want to get hurt” is something we often here. But remember the priority of all the coaches at CrossFit Peekskill is your safety. So questioning whether you’re pushing yourself isn’t about needing to push yourself to do something you aren’t ready for. We want you to get the most out of your workout. Pushing yourself doesn’t mean you need to go RX on the workout and spend 10 min more than anyone else. But if you find you continually take breaks as soon as it gets... read more

Take A Step Backwards To Take 2 Steps Forward

    With the CrossFit Games season in full swing it is very easy to get caught up every weekend watching these world class athletes make extremely hard workouts look way too easy. A lot of crossfitters will look at these athletes and feel motivated to want to do what they are doing. The problem with that? Nothing, if you understand the work that goes into getting to that level.   Everyone has to start somewhere and no one is too good for the basics. I am talking about mastering the simplest of movements to make the more advanced movements that much easier. I am talking about performing ring rows perfectly, performing air squats perfectly. Does the WOD call for Knees 2 Elbows and you feel like you should be doing Toes 2 Bar instead? Do not look for ways to make a workout harder but instead look to achieve a higher level of intensity. If Knees 2 Elbows are easy for you then GOOD. Go hard and get a higher score.   Every workout you do does not need to be hard. Some workouts you do should feel easy. If every time you train you find yourself laying on your back out of breath and exhausted then you need to re-evaluate the way you workout. You will not get any better if you do not work on skills. You will not get any faster if you do not work on your speed. You will not get any stronger if you do not work on your strength. This concept applies to the everyday person who just wants to look... read more

Commitments / Desires.

The difference between desires and commitments (and what they mean for you)     There’s a big difference between wanting something and committing to something. It’s easy to want something because wanting something takes no action. We can sit at our desk job every day thinking about how bad we want to be doing something we really enjoy and still spend the rest of our working lives sitting at our desk. We can desire to take a vacation but take no steps to save money or ask for time off and next thing we know another year has passed without us taking a break.   Wants and desires often get confused with goals and commitments. Why? Because all of us WANT to be healthy and fit. All of us WANT to be the person that eats lots of vegetables and says no to cake at the party; so we therefore conclude that these are our goals. But we can also really want that piece of cake and really want to just take a nap instead of going to the gym. When we have tons of wants floating around in our mind without any action or legitimate commitments, the easy wants – the wants that are hard to say no to – these are the ones that will win. And I think this is where people get caught up. They expect their want for a fit body to be louder than their other desires for the things that hold them back.   The second trap that having wants vs. commitments can get us in to is waiting for the right... read more
