With 2017 half through it is a great time to reflect on some of the PBs we have seen in the last few months. It is important to be proud of your achievements. These are the product of your hard work, dedication and commitment to training. Ring the bell, write your PB on the board, and celebrate these wins with each other. Get excited and get excited for one another!
Watching a person hit a PB weight in a lift or perform a gymnastics movement for the first time in amazing to watch. The coaching team would like to acknowledge a few stand out PB’s that have been witness over the last few months:
Most recently Marina in successfully completing her first strict pull up.
Stasia screaming with excitement over her first HSPU.
Shebby less recently, completing her first kipping pull ups, which are getting stronger and stronger each week.
Al Thompson, now the master of gymnastics (and former Tasmania State Gymnastics Silver Medallist), performing his first bar muscle up.
Kristine who has been working extremely hard, has PD’d her snatch at 37.5kg.
Congratulations to Mike B for hitting a 240kg dead lift.
And Julian, where to begin with this guy, PB’ing almost all his lifts and benchmark workouts in the last few weeks.
And last but definitely not least Drew and his 100kg snatch.
Remember, celebrate your wins, whether they are big are small.
“It’s the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen.” John Wooden.
On the flipside, don’t forget to acknowledge the ‘not yet’. CrossFit is a continuous journey, and the not yet is a powerful tool for learning and development. If you are new to CrossFit, or struggling with a movement, it is okay to not yet be there; to not yet have the strength, movement or coordination figured out. Embrace that you are not yet there, work hard towards changing that and with some determination and time, you can transform that ‘not yet’ into an ‘I did it!’.
Everyone should take some time to set a goal or two, make your goal achievable but also challenging, determine what is required to meet that goal, tell everyone what your goal is, write it on the board to be held accountable and lastly dedicated some time to achieve it.
Keep up the great work!
