Being the best box in town starts with you, the member. People will show up and check out CFG and decide rather quickly if it the place for them or not based on the people at the box. We value community at CFG and want to create a community that people will want to join…thus this segment of blog posts. View these “best box in town” blogs as something that can help you better yourself as a CFG member. By applying these things to your life you, you will truly help us continue to be the best box in town.
You are the only one that can make yourself go to the box and do the workout. Yes, your friends and coaches are there to help motivate you, but at the end of the day it is only you that can show up and put in the work. You are the one who has to make the decision to go through On-Ramp, you are the one who has to decide to show up your first regular class, you are the one who has to decide to wake up at 5:15 to get to the box because it’s the only time that fits in your busy schedule…IT’S ALL ON YOU! You are the measuring stick for your results. How great is that?!
Knowing that will eliminate any thought or pressure that someone else will control what you accomplish. If someone gets more reps than you or lifts more weight than you guess what?…it doesn’t matter! They are putting in work just like you are, they are trying to achieve new levels of fitness just like you! Did you show up and put in the work? If so, then that is the only thing that matters. Never let your work in the box disappreciate in value because of someone else’s work in the box.
Are you bummed because someone else is having better results than you? Instead of beating yourself up about it, ask them what they are doing to see those results and then put in the work that you are missing. It may be as simple as changing some of the things you are eating, or it may be changing your technique on a lift. I was able to lift more weight on my power clean just by making sure I kept my feet on the ground…it was just a little change in my work and boom! If you want to see your goals achieved, show up at the box on a Saturday and take advantage of open gym, or push yourself to do a LITTLE more weight than you usually do on an EMOM.
Are you at the point where you have to make a lifestyle change? There is hope for you! Walking to the counter for the first time was the hardest thing I have done at CFG. You can do it.
Once you cross that barrier it is simply up to you to show up and put in the work AT YOUR OWN PACE!!!!
