    068 : 5 Reasons Why You Don’t Need to be in Shape Before you Start CrossFit

    068 : 5 Reasons Why You Don’t Need to be in Shape Before you Start CrossFit

    We have heard it from time to time - “I don’t think I am fit enough to start CrossFit.” In today’s episode, Matt and Jilisa talk about why this is a myth. CrossFit has often been given a certain stereotype for being super intense, super hardcore, and only for the fittest of fit human beings. We would argue nearly the opposite. The goal of CrossFit is to help every athlete be able to start wherever they are at. We talk through 5 reasons why we KNOW you don’t need to be in a certain shape in order to start!

    We know that the holiday season can be one of stress, and nervousness around food. The discussion of calories, gaining holiday weight, etc., becomes a common topic. We’d like to offer a few easy tips to follow that have nothing to do with calories or anxiety around food. Our biggest goal is to help our clients be able to ENJOY the season without stress, and without having to worry or focus on what the scale might say when January rolls around.

    066: How to balance staying healthy and fit with a busy lifestyle

    066: How to balance staying healthy and fit with a busy lifestyle

    FInd us a person who isn’t “busy”... we’ll wait. There is no way around it, but if your life is busy, you absolutely have to schedule in your priorities in order for them to happen. Treat your health habits the same you would treat a meeting or appointment. Schedule it in. Prep-plan it. Get organized. Even if it’s 15-20 minutes, that is exceptionally better than zero minutes.

    There is no way around it. You have to be prepared - with both your fitness and nutrition. If your health is important to you, you’ll need to commit to spending some time in the kitchen before your busy week begins!

    If you’re a busy person looking for help getting on track with your health and fitness, have a listen. Even better, book a Free No Sweat Intro with us for some extra help getting you started.

    064: Quit Quitting

    064: Quit Quitting

    We, as a society, are impatient. So, so, incredibly impatient. We’ve been taught that it’s normal to have instant gratification for most things in life - our food, technology, transportation, and definitely our fitness results. There are endless ads for dropping an insane amount of weight in an insanely short amount of time. So it’s really not your fault that you believe these things to be “normal.” But, it doesn’t work that way. It never has and never will. Instead of getting fed up because you aren’t seeing instant results, or your fad diet backfired and you are up more weight then when you started, take a new approach. Agree to a slow and steady approach. Understand that it’s going to take time. Your job is to quit quitting!  

    We can help you stay consistent, motivated, and to keep you moving forward.
