Setting goals

Denise coaching and cheering for Heather

We had some good competition and cheering in the 430 class last night, well done people!


The goal board is up! It’s over the tires in the gym. I’d like everyone to look at their current state of health and fitness and set a goal. Just saying, ‘I want to feel better’ is all great, but let’s get a little more specific. For some or most of you it could be ‘I want to better my mobility and feel comfortable in a squat or squatting. Or I want to feel comfortable in an over head squat position. Some of you came in not knowing you wanted a pull up or whatever and now you want to do this or that lift, etc. I see a lot of you getting close to a pull up, some of you are already lifting pretty heavy. Way to go! Think about it this weekend, come in on Tuesday and put it on the board. I’d like to see a 1 month and a 3 month goal from each of you. Anything longer, it gets hard to be specific and keep track of. If you need help thinking about a goal ask one of the coaches, we’re here to help. I want everyone’s goal on the board! Having it public for everyone to see helps motivate people, and allows others to support and hold you accountable. It’ll also keep you athletes from slacking off!

    I’ve been thinking about this goal thing and have been very hesitant at making a commitment, but I think I have it. I want to be more flexible so that I can stop modifying the moves. I want to be able to do “real” burpees and do a handstand. That is my one month goal. My three month goal is to do pull ups and push-ups without modifying.
