NEW YEAR…NEW OPPORTUNITIES!!!
WOW!!! Just thinking back on how far our program has come, and how much you all have achieved in this last year is…simply AMAZING!! We (your coaches) have a few things we’d like to share with you, as we begin this new year–together.
From Coach BRice…
You are only as good as your efforts and goals. With 2017 upon us, the coaches at CFE encourage you to get out of your comfort zone, and come join us. I’ll leave you with this verse to ponder upon…
“For I am about to do something new.”–Isaiah 43:19
From Coach Allison…
Why I am a fan of NY resolutions
2017. Clean slate, new start. I see so many opinions about how NY resolutions are dumb, stupid, unreasonable. To me, this feels like we are giving up on ourselves before we even attempt to start.
What good does that do?
I think NY resolutions are a great time to set goals. They don’t have to be unrealistic, unreasonable or unattainable. And, maybe they are something a simple as a mindset shift. For example: My 2016 NY resolution was to only have three bad days. Sure, I had some days that weren’t as good as others, but I always remembered that goal and when my day wasn’t going my way, I just changed my mindset.
Soooo, how does this apply to endurance? I hear all too often- I’m terrible at running, my endurance is awful…and on and on. To me, this is the same as NY resolutions being dumb, stupid, unreasonable.
How do you get better at running if you don’t run? Have you always been able to do double unders?
Next time you catch yourself saying “I’m terrible at running,” shift that mindset. Why don’t you give endurance a shot 1x a week? Or, maybe for you, its 1x every other week. Hey, it’s a start! Who knows? You might actually look forward to those WODs with running!
Here’s to 2017 and our resolutions! I hope some of you add endurance to those resolutions. You never know, it could be all the positivity you need for 2017! Cheers!
From Coach Jen C…
Some days, you just need a little CFE back lot in your life.
Everything’s better with friends. Everything’s better with kindness. Everything’s better on the far side of a job well done.
At CFE, here is what I know for sure…
You will find all of those things, every single week, from every single coach, and every single athlete, every single time.
I cannot WAIT for another year full of victories and hard work with this group! I look forward to new faces, new PRs, new challenges, and knowing that all of you will be there–the back lot’s where it’s at. 🙂
