If it doesn’t challenge you it won’t change you.

Jabletes!

Spring break is upon us and if you are just returning from warm tropical climates, welcome home!  If you are jetting off to a wonderful vacation, have a fantastic trip!  Those of you here in Seattle, I am sure you have been enjoying the gorgeous weather.  What a welcome to spring!  Some of you have asked in class about some ideas for WODS to do while you are away for a week.  The best is checking out http://www.thetravelingwod.com/ and my favorite http://www.noexcusescrossfit.com/2009/12/02/travel-wods/  I love that you are looking for something to keep moving while you are away from the gym!  Doing something is better than nothing if you want to come back after your week away and get right back into the swing of things at Jab Crossfit.  Believe me, I’ve learned the hard way over the years!  Make it fun!  Get the kids involved!  Do a healthy little competitive workout with your family!  Tabatas are great travel workouts.  You can do them anywhere, in your hotel room, in the hotel gym, on the beach or by the pool.  It’s quick and a sure way to get that heart rate up!  Most of all, I hope everyone has a wonderful break from the regular routine!  I’m traveling with my family this evening to Los Angeles to celebrate my mother’s birthday!  Tomorrow we are going to the horse races at Santa Anita Racetrack, then Monday to Universal Studios (Harry Potter!!!), finishing off our quick trip to a tour of the Paramount Lot!  Looking forward to it!

I recently came across a quote that made me think about all athletes.  “It is a shame for a woman to grow old without ever seeing the strength and beauty for which her body is capable”- Socrates.  I know this mainly speaks to women but definitely with men too.  You put time and effort into your workouts.   You have dedicated yourself to doing better FOR yourself.  You may have started to  see changes in how your clothes fit.  You have started to use a slightly heavier weight knowing it’ll be challenging but also knowing you CAN do it!  Don’t give up and keep up all of your amazing hard work!  It’s making a difference!

Lastly, we have a new schedule!  Just a reminder here’s our class times:
