CrossFit athletes have some of the best physiques on the planet. How do they produce these great results and incredible bodies? Simply put, at CrossFit everyone is an athlete and trains like one too. To train like an athlete, follow these basic principles to see results.
Compound Movements - Great athletes can perform complex skills that involve coordination of their entire body. These skills could include sprinting, jumping, or throwing. Training should follow this same basic principle; utilizing total body or compound movements such as box jumps, sprints, medicine ball throws, and burpees. All of these are CrossFit staples and part of what makes our workouts so productive.
Intensity - Athlete’s don’t get results just from what they do; it’s how they do it. CrossFit workouts may only last a short time but the intensity, energy, and focus is at a high level. A short workout at high intensity burns calories, increases lean muscle, and pumps up your metabolism leading to better body composition. To look like an athlete, break away from marathon workouts that slightly elevate your heart rate and train for short periods at high intensity.
Competition - Athlete’s are competitors, it is their competitive drive that often makes them great at what they do. It is no surprise that great athletes surround themselves with people who will challenge them and push them in their training. With CrossFit, the training environment is challenging and empowering; there is no substitute for the motivation from a great team that pushes you to reach your potential and always give your best.
Action - Great athletes are risk takers and take action; they learn from experience. The only way to get the body and results you desire is to stop thinking about it or reading about it and get started! We are here to help you take action, contact us to get started. If you are reading this you have made the decision, now it is time to act on that decision, so stop reading and start training!
“ @tonyrobbins: HABITS=FUTURE If we want a new life then we need new & consistent actions. What new choice could U make today that could begin a new journey.
“ One of the deep secrets of life is that all that is really worth the doing is what we do for others
Do you constantly visualize it?
There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t acutely visualize my future. Where I live. Who I’m with. My dream home. The room with a view. Where I travel. The car I drive. The sites I see. The freshest of air I breathe. The love & gratitude I feel. And most importantly, the relationships & who I’ve been blessed enough to impact & give back to along the way. I feel it deep in my bones. It gives me chills & flutters. It brings my senses to life. It’s a God-sized dream & I will let Him finish what he’s started within me because without Him, I have nothing; I am nothing.
“ Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
CrossFit - “At the root, this isn’t about the elite athlete,” “What this does is promote the programming. I’ll take a person losing 100 pounds over the Games any day.” -Greg Glassman.
