No more scales

How do you measure progress? It depends. I prefer to use my performance as a means of measuring. If my lifts are going up, and my times are getting faster, that’s progress.

But not everyone has the same goals. Some want to lose weight. And that’s fine. Just don’t use a scale to measure your progress.

CrossFit Moncton is not a weight loss facility. We are a fat loss facility. How do you measure that? The preferred way would be getting your body fat percentage tested with a bioelectrical impedance machine.

Sounds complicated? It’s really isn’t. You lay on the floor, they hook up a pad on your hand and foot, and in a few minutes, the machine spits out the results. Easy!

Where can you get this done? Right here at CrossFit Moncton. On August 4th, starting at 7:20am, Rebecca Bilodeau, the Holistic Dietitian, will be performing body composition tests for our members. Cost is $25 and can be claimed on most insurance policies. There is a sign-up at the gym in the office.

  16. Got my first inverted dip tonight after the 5:30 class was over. Thanks Amanda and Pat for the tips!

      1. Yeah, it was kinda fun and scary all at the same time. I have a huge fear of heights so being upside down while I am in the air is quite daunting for me to say the least! lol!

    1. Congrats! I know how hard it was for you to get inverted for handstands…and now you are inverted AND suspended! Woohoo!

    2. Great job Corinna! I was very excited for you, impressed that you pushed through that fear.
