Goals

Row 1000m for time

Some people have noticed the new, smaller whiteboard in the gym. It has a list of every member at the gym on it. Pat asked what it was for; I smiled. He didn’t like the looks of that.

It’s nothing more than a goal board. Every member will be required to write down a goal before the new year begins. Why? Can you imagine going to a shooting range for target practice, but not having a target. Kind of pointless, isn’t it?

So what could you goal be? Something performance based like getting your first pullup, or reaching a 200# deadlift. It could be heath based, like losing a certain percentage of body fat or dropping inches (no weight goals please…it’s not a measure of health).

When will you work on it? If it’s a skill or performance based, days like today are perfect! The workout is short enough that it will give you plenty of practice time.

Why does it need to be written? When you write your goals down, it gives worth and value to your workouts. It gives you a reason to come every day. It makes you accountable.

So please, take some time to think about a goal. It needs to be specific with a date (short term) you plan on attaining it.

Double unders will certainly be goals for some people

  1. CHRISTMAS SOCIAL NEWS – It’s happening this Saturday. People will start gathering around 7 or 8pm. Later in the evening, we’ll do a Yankee Swap.

    In Yankee Swap each participant brings a wrapped, unmarked gift. Guests are given numbers that are randomly drawn, and they select and unwrap gifts from the pile in that order β€” with a twist.

    The person who receives the number 1 will pick a gift (that is not their own) from the pile and open it for all to see. During the selection of a wrapped gift, the participant may visually inspect the gifts, pick them up and/or gently shake them.

    The person who receives number 2 then chooses a gift and opens it, and then must decide whether to keep it or swap it for the first player’s gift. Each person in order then gets to select a present, open it and decide whether to keep it or swap it for any other gift someone has already opened.

    Opening of gifts and swapping takes place until all the presents have been chosen. Finally, the person who picked first gets to choose from all the gifts or keep what he/she has already received. In the end, the gift you are holding is the gift you take home.

        And the gifts can be anything. Don’t think that they have to be CrossFit related. I really like cookies from the market *wink wink*

      2. What about wrapping something you’ve got at home but you don’t want anymore? We did that one time and its pretty funny!!
        But cookie could be good too!! πŸ™‚

  5. Since I am assuming that the next 2 weeks will be hard on my body when it will come to food and alcohol, I won’t put a big big goal up on that board.

    But my goal is to get a 130# shoulder press by Dec. 19th.

  6. I came across this thought for the day. “People rarely succeed at anything unless they have fun doing it.” I guess that’s why people succeed at Crossfit Moncton.
