Happy New Year!!

Jabletes!

We hope you all had a wonderful break with your family and friends.  We hope you relaxed, played hard, ate all the food and celebrated because that’s what the holidays are all about!  How about that white Christmas!  We had a blast making a giant snowman and having a snowball fight!  Hope you got to go skiing, snowboarding, hiking, lounging, and rest.

Now, it’s easy to let the little things like lack of regular exercise, eating lots of treats and drinking some holiday cheer  get in your head.  The best thing to think about now is how will you make a difference today?  How about tomorrow?  Yes, that first day back in the gym is gonna feel AWFUL, but the next day less so and the day after that even better.  I’m talking baby steps here.  You can’t come back after a week or two away and expect it to feel awesome.  Maybe you lift a lighter barbell than usual that first week back in the gym.  Lower your expectations the slightest bit because just being here makes a difference.  The next week you’ll start to feel stronger, you’ll possibly be able to lift more and faster.  But first week back, maybe not and we want you to know that is totally ok!  You just have to make that commitment to walk in the door, the rest is easy.

Some people make resolutions.  Some people just make goals.  How ever you like to do it we are curious what are your goals for 2018?

Now, I know Feb. 22nd seems far away BUT it’ll be here before we know it and that is the first day of the Crossfit Open!  YES!  Registration begins Jan. 11th!  That’s next week, team!  Want to know more?  Read all about the Crossfit Open here!  Remember, our goal is to have as many athletes from our community sign up as possible because it IS possible to do the Open no matter your ability!

Keep Moving!
