3 May


Time for goals people. Now that you have all had a few days to think about it, I’m hoping to see some awesome ones here. Let’s stay away from the dreaded “lose weight” goal. That one is boring, and who cares about what the scale says anyway if you look good naked.

Your goal should be something you want to accomplish during the 30 days Challenge and should be PRECISE!

  • 10 unbroken kipping Pull Ups – NOT – Pull Ups
  • Sub 4:00 “Fran” – NOT – PR my “Fran”
  • 10# PR on my Deadlift – NOT – PR my Deadlift
  • 5 unbroken Double Unders – NOT – get my Double Unders

How are we going to reach our goals?

  1. Stop fantasizing. Start committing. The main reason we don’t achieve our goals is lack of commitment. If you want it, commit to working on it. As Nike would said, just do it.
  2. Start. Now. How do you start working towards a goal? Start somewhere…anywhere. Diving in the deep end and taking that first step could be the difference between failure and success. Once you’ve started, the goal is going to get stuck in your mind.
  3. Visualize the path. Not the outcome. Concentrate on what you are going to do to work towards your goal, not simply the goal itself. It helps focus your attention on the steps you need to take.
  4. If you fall, keep going. This is a tough one. Goals don’t come easy, but neither does anything good. You have to work for it. If you hit some bumps on your road to achieving your goal, you’re doing it right. Get through them, ask a Coach for help. If you don’t work on your weaknesses they will never become your strengths.
  5. Don’t be Tyler Durden. Aka, don’t beat yourself up. Goals should be difficult, but fun. If you aren’t having fun while working towards your goal you’re fucked. It will begin to feel like a chore and your chances of succeeding at that point is slim.
  6. Don’t be a robot either. If you’re doing the same thing everyday and not making any progress it’s time for a change. Again, ask a Coach for suggestions on what to do or what to change up.

We’re here to help you guys! Talk with a Coach about your goals and figure out a good plan of attack. Get to work, you have 28 days!

    My goals: 1 (hopefully more) kipping pull ups without the band, instead of doing 1 double under then a single then another double under, I want to work on combining my double unders. Also, improve my form on my push ups (I know, stupid but I tend to drop my hips and I end up looking like a worm :-/ )

  7. tsulita May 3, 2013 at 10:02 pm #

    15 DU.
    0:59 400m Run.

  8. Pilar May 3, 2013 at 10:07 pm #

    After the open I realized that I need to work on a lot of things.
    My pull ups, no more band! I want to be able to do that 75 power Snatch!, Be able to do the Wall Balls with the #14 and hit the mark all the time. The #95 Clean and Jerk more than the 4 I did and maybe get 1 chest to bar. And my double Unders, want to do more than 1.
