Wishing is a waste of time.

Wishing happens as you eat a doughnut which tastes sweeter than the abs you have dreamed about for years.

Wishing happens when you see someone get their first muscle up, but your desire to hit the showers still outweighs your desire to get above those rings.

Wishing for fitness happens when you see someone on ESPN, but yet it doesn’t drive you off the couch.

Then, after years of wishing you get fed up, pissed off and frustrated. Seriously? When will it happen for you?

It will happen for you when you put together a game plan and stick to it. It will happen when you put down the cupcake day after day, when you watch videos online and actually practice muscle up progressions. 

It will happen when you start hitting the gym more often than not, when you start working, when you start sweating and hurting - but not until then.

You won’t get it by wishing. So stop. Start dreaming, start planning, start doing, but stop wishing.

Start strong.

That’s right, stop moseying off the start line and treating the first round like a warmup. 

It isn’t. It’s your workout.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not against pacing, I’m just against treating the first five minutes like a throwaway.

Those first few steps, or reps, or minutes are going to set the tone for the entire WOD. Start them in a funk and you will wonder why you couldn’t get the gears moving today. Start them off hard and fast and you will be halfway through the workout before you realize.

The workout is only 10-15 minutes. 20 maybe. You can handle the struggle for that long. 

Clear your mind and warmup your body before 3-2-1, because GO isn’t the signal to walk out the door or approach the bar.

GO is the signal to find your limits and get the work done.

To the finish.

Seriously. All the way. 

Sprint the last few reps or the last few meters if you can. Even if you choked on the rest of the workout, go out with a bang.

There is no more need to pace, no more need to think about how many pullups you still have to do or how many rounds you still have left.

Summon every last ounce of energy you can muster and crush the last 10 seconds. Get. It. Done. It isn’t supposed to feel good. PRs and new skills aren’t made by “feeling good” during the workouts.

10 more seconds is NOT a call to stop working. 10 more meters is NOT the place to start walking. 10 more reps is NOT the time to let it all go.

Don’t accept mediocrity, find your courage to perform at the level you dream of. For the last 10 it is all or nothing. The last 10 is where you are going, so be sure to make it what you want to be.

Finish strong.

It’s time to get back to work. I know we all sat on the couch all weekend, so don’t try and play the rest day card.

Watching all of the athletes compete was amazing, their power, their drive, their skill.

You know how they got there? They went and worked out. They did it on the days that were hard to get out of bed, the days where they were a bit achy and the days where they just didn’t want to.

Your goals will not just attain themselves. Sitting in the gym for years on end will not magically get you a muscle up. You have to be in there and you have to work at it.

There is no better day to start than today.

Yesterday was a bad day.I feel you - work sucked, your diet was horrible, you failed all your reps. You feel like crap today and frustrated that nothing is going according to plan.The lifts feel heavy and you can’t manage to make it through our programming.Your legs feel tired and can’t seem to get going faster than a mediocre jog.It happens. What counts is how you handle it. Will you just throw in the towel or will you try and turn it around? Will you sulk or will you give yourself a slap in the face and wake up?It’s up to you. You have the power to dig deep, to have the fitness you dream of. You have the power - but will you do it? Will you make today a good day even though yesterday was far from it?I certainly hope you do.#crossfit #fitness #fitspo #fitspiration #exercise #motivation #fitnessmotivation

Yesterday was a bad day.

I feel you - work sucked, your diet was horrible, you failed all your reps. 

You feel like crap today and frustrated that nothing is going according to plan.

The lifts feel heavy and you can’t manage to make it through our programming.

Your legs feel tired and can’t seem to get going faster than a mediocre jog.

It happens. What counts is how you handle it. Will you just throw in the towel or will you try and turn it around? Will you sulk or will you give yourself a slap in the face and wake up?

It’s up to you. You have the power to dig deep, to have the fitness you dream of. 

You have the power - but will you do it? Will you make today a good day even though yesterday was far from it?

I certainly hope you do.
