You’ve just Googled ‘CrossFit’, you have found us, and now you’re checking out the website.
You have almost decided to give it a go..
You’ve only one step left, and that is giving us a call and getting started.
But you stop..
I already know you have a dozen reasons why you think you can’t do it. Running and jumping aren’t in your wheelhouse at present. You’ve may have seen that those things appear regularly in the gym here, as do pull-ups and burpees.
There is a voice is telling you that you can’t do it, but I also know another voice is saying to you that you WANT to, you just want to know you CAN.
Here’s what I know for certain: If you don’t try, you definitely won’t create the body you want. The path to that body—that healthy, capable and fit body—runs directly away from your sofa.
I know exactly how you feel.
You see, I’ve watched a bunch masters, just like you walk into this gym 5 weeks ago, some feel feel heavy, some feeling slow, most feeling old beyond their years… most have said at the start they felt like an imposter.
In the last 5 weeks I have watched these men and women lose weight at a rate of knots, which to me is no surprise, but for them has been the most enlightening experience, and something I get so excited to hear every single time, and I never want those conversations to end.
If you are worried that you’ll stand out because of your lack of fitness, I have a secret to share with you; our program humbles everyone daily…. regardless of what you can do, or what you have done before.
This is not a secret inside the my community. If you ask the fittest person here about his or her first workout, you’ll hear stories about not finishing, needing to slow down, or stop and being shocked about how much harder it was than it looked.
Here’s another secret: You have a bit of an advantage over the typical fairly fit person who looks at getting started. You already know it’s going to be hard, because I have been honest enough to tell you straight up.
In truth, the workouts are always going to be hard because when they start to get easy, we’ll make them harder again. That’s what we do, and that’s how you get fitter and accomplish your goals.
We aren’t a bunch of genetic freaks with a high pain tolerance here. We don’t love the actual workout while we are doing it, but we love its effects, and the reward is worth the effort.
This is something I want you to read again.
I want you to experience the same transformation that those before you have achieved, but it’s going to take more than a session or two before you notice the changes your body will start making on Day 1.
The space between your first class and the first look-what-I-can-do-now moment will be a challenge, but I promise you it will be worth it.
I have a proposal for you: Give yourself 24 hours in the form of 24 classes.
That’s enough classes to get you past the initial what-was-I-thinking panic and through the week or two when your body threatens to go on strike in protest of your new routine.
It is likely, that you will question your decision during every class for at least the first 2 weeks.
You’ll be sore. You’ll be sure you are never going to remember the exercises nor be able to do half of them. You’ll curse gravity and wish it was easier.
Somewhere between classes 10 and 20, things will start making sense, and you might even find yourself looking forward to the next challenge written on the whiteboard. Trust me, I’ve seen it hundreds of times.
Reclaiming your life won’t be easy. But it will be worth it.
You’re going to have to fight excuses, old habits, the desire to quit, but just like a plane faces the wind before taking off you’ll fight through your excuses and reach “cruising altitude” in just a few short hours.
Once there, you’ve created a routine, and quitting won’t be even be on your radar.
Three or four days a week for the next six to eight weeks—that’s all I’m asking for. Don’t look beyond that.
The time is going to pass whether you get off the couch or not. How much better for it to pass as you grow stronger and healthier, not only for yourself, but for those around you. Your family, your friends, those that you love, and those that love you.
Any structure that is meant to last requires a solid foundation at its base. Think of each class as another brick you are adding to the foundation of your health and fitness. When you fill in those finals bricks, your basic foundation will be complete and you’ll be ready to really start building the body and life you want.
Every day, we prevent disease, reverse obesity and rebuild lives through a complete fitness program.
I am asking you to spend 24 hours and see what changes our routine can make in your life
