Oh boy do I have one for you today.
This one ain’t for the faint of heart, so mom…
You should probably stop reading now.
Ok, is she gone??
Fuck! I hurt!
Just kidding. Actually I feel pretty good (shout out to my chiro Dr. Roberts), but what hurts is my ego.
I did a crossfit workout with some women who were at the least
15 years older than me and I was throughly
Ok, ok, ok…
Those of you who know me, have known me to say that CrossFit sucks
That it has little to no value and that it is an abomination to training.
Well, Sherlock Bromes, I change my mind.
I’m allowed to do that, I’m human right?
Anyhoo, as I was saying, I did an actual all out CrossFit workout
For the first time the other day.
I admit, I walked in there with those ladies and said to myself
“Ok, try not to look toooo good”
But man, let me tell ya. I was eating some serious crow after the first half hour.
I started with the warm-up which I knew would be easy, then we went on to
A conditioning part, which I had later found out was NOT the actual workout
But an extension of the warm-up so to speak.
At the end of the day I ended up cursing more times than I would like to admit
Throwing my hat on the ground
And laying face up in a pool of my own sweat with my body bouncing off the ground
Because my ass muscles wouldn’t stop twitching.
It was at that moment that I realized that I was being the biggest wuss on earth.
You see, life is all about challenges.
If you go through life without challenges, you simply are not living my friend.
You want challenges
You need challenges to grow and become more than what you are now.
But too often, we run from challenges
Hiding out and sedating with television and booze.
The challenges still awaiting, but nevertheless you ignore them.
I get it, because I’ve been there.
I ran from the challenge of CrossFit
I was comfortable with what I already knew with boot camps and TRX.
CrossFit is really just another variation of what I already do, however it’s different.
It offers you the added intensity of time.
And when done correctly, it can be a life changing experience.
Kinda like in your everyday life.
When you accept challenges, before you even take action
A biological change happens within your body.
You literally begin to adapt to the change that your mind is preparing you for.
It’s like you have a psychic body (great title for an email)
So if you want to start getting your “psychic body” prepared for your next step in life
Then discover the power to accept challenges and get your mind and body
On the same page to get past any obstacle (sometimes even in a pool of sweat)

P.S. Yes, I will be going back for more. I always love challenges, especially when I can see how they can benefit me. I see a lot of people however, that sometimes go through challenges that they didn’t need to experience. It’s sometimes frustrating for both me and my clients to see them experience downfalls that they could have prevented.
