“Fighting the Good Fight”

Posted in Uncategorized on December 2, 2009 by Crossfit Sioux Falls

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.” – Theodore Roosevelt

Everyday we step into the gym not knowing what we will put our bodies through, not knowing how we will feel throughtout the wod, but knowing there is no better feeling then lying in a puddle of your own sweat proving to ourselves yet again we conquered another infamous WOD!!!

Fight hard for what you want and get results!

There is no better feeling in the world than conquering your fears, even if you might fail sometimes! Lets face it we will not always PR. We will not beat our Max everytime, but we will fight the good fight to become better! We will challange ourselves each workout even if it does not meet our expectations everytime, we will keep proving to ourselves and others that we are stronger mentally and physically just by doing what we do each WOD!

I am so proud of you all CrossFit Sioux Falls!!! Lets keep fighting, challenging ourselves, and improving at all times!!! By doing this you will acheive your goals and gain success!

CrossFitters…. What fear do you want to overcome in order to “fight the good fight”?

Mary is a flat out ROCKSTAR!

Well…well…well. It is one of my favorite times of the year. The Holiday season. The best time of the year for get-togethers with family and friends. The best time of the year to be grateful and thankful for all that we have been blessed with. The best time of the year to recap our year and plan for the next.

Let’s start with how did you do last month? Tell us.
Did you succeed?
Or was it a bump in the road?
Regardless it is a new month and new beginning. The TIME is NOW!!! Refusing to wait for the new year gives you a major step ahead of everyone else waiting with their “New Years Resolutions”…HA! The resolutions start NOW!

Next. Let us have it? Goals…this month.
What are they?
Improve on previous goals?
Make new ones?
How are you going to finish this month?
What’s the plan? Name at least 3 things. Name more if you want.

Everytime you comment you are holding YOURSELF accountable and YOUR CrossFit community will HELP YOU.

You gotta love the 1st of the month:-)

Lets make this the biggest response for 2009.
