I love my job! Coaching athletes of all levels and helping to make them better versions of themselves is just awesome. Make no mistake about it, it is each athlete’s drive and motivation that contributes to their individual success, but it is nice to be reminded that I am doing the right thing and doing my part in guiding them along their journeys. Yesterday was my reminder that I am in fact doing the right thing and contributing to our athletes’ success. Even more so, though, it was flat out awesome to watch our athletes perform and realize that they are on it! It’s always great to set a new PR (and we had 12 yesterday!), but you have to look at the bigger picture as well. We have athletes that have been with us for two years, athletes that have come back after a long break, recovering from injuries, recovering from a recent surgery, getting back in the saddle after having a baby, brand new athletes, as well as athletes that are still beginners when it comes to CrossFit. So what was so impressive? It’s the willingness of all of these athletes to get under a bar and push themselves, to get out of their comfort zones and do something that’s difficult. It’s the attention to detail with regard to the mechanics of their movements, their willingness to ask: “am I doing this correctly?” So, to our athletes, I’m so proud of your progress! You’re getting stronger, you’re getting better every day, you’re becoming better versions of you! Keep up the good work!
