I was walking around the gym today. Moving things around, picking things up, just visiting the space, really, since it’s been a while since I’ve been in a class.

Wanna know what I noticed?

  Our poor, lonely goal board.

It’s sad. Sitting there. Virtually blank.

And then, I got to thinking.

I just spent 2 days at a CrossFit cert course. I got 2 days of invaluable information (that I already knew lots of thanks to the awesome ITP class here at CrossFit Lakás!) and I realized, I’ve let my own goals slip away.

So, I asked myself why. Why have they slipped away? Why am I not working on them? If I’m not working on my goals as a staff member, how in the world could we hope that you all were working on your goals as a member of the family?

My excuses were lame, really. I’m busy. WBBC takes a lot of time. Retail won’t do itself! I’ll just never get it, so, why bother?

And then, it hit me. I freakin’ WORK here. I have the benefit of being able to get out of my chair, throw a band on the pull up rig, and work on that flippin’ unassisted pull up! AND, not to toot my own horn (TOOT TOOT!) but the trainers at my cert said I have a great kip swing so once I get my strict pull-up, kipping should be easy for me.

Easy??? What in CrossFit comes easy to any one?? I had to take that dumb grin off my face and realize I have to get down to business.

You guys may not have the benefit of working here. BUT you have the benefit of an open gym. And Skill Sessions. And other really cool stuff coming down the pike.

I hate to say it, but the new year is right around the corner. Chantel keeps counting down Christmas for me. I give her a hard time, but I love the idea of the time of year when we get to start new.

So, here’s what you need to do (and YES..you NEED to do it). Get with your roster coach and set a goal. And put it ON THE GOAL BOARD.

Why? Because we need to be held accountable. All of us. And, if you don’t have goals in the gym, then you are going to simply plug along. Sure, you might make a few gains along the way, but you won’t notice them, and we probably won’t either.

And, when it comes to your goal, go big or go home! Put your money where your mouth is (ask us how!). Don’t be afraid. If you don’t reach your goal, you will at least get closer by working on it.
