January is Almost Over...How are Your Goals Progressing?!

A few weeks ago, we talked about New Year’s Resolutions or goals, however you look at them.

 

Now that January is almost over I wanted to check in and see how thing are going in regards to those goals.

 

Are you following your plan of action?

 

Have you made progress and hit a small goal?

 

Have you fallen off the wagon?

 

Have you revised your goal?

 

Have you reflected on any of these questions?

 

Reflection is a great tool to utilize when it comes to tracking progress….

 

But in order for it to be successful you need to be honest with yourself.

 

If you made a weight loss goal are you following a meal plan, working out and getting enough sleep?

 

If you made a training goal are you hitting them gym and working the different pieces and parts to allow yourself to achieve that goal?

 

Sometimes it’s more difficult to be honest with ourselves than anyone else, however if you actually want to reach that goal you must be!

 

If during your reflection you are finding that you aren’t progressing the way you had hoped it may be time to look for a subject matter expert to help you.

 

24 hour gyms tout the fact that you can come in and work out anytime essentially fitting into any schedule.

 

Which can be great for some people, and detrimental for others.

 

If you don’t have a plan of action or the understanding of how to train to hit a goal it can be very hard to go into a facility and put yourself through a workout that is actually going to help you achieve your goals.

 

That’s where a good coach comes into play.

 

A coach is a subject matter expert who knows what metabolic pathways must be hit, what volume you should train at and what intensity level you want to be in for any given workout to get you where you want to be.

 

The same holds true for nutrition coaching and even life coaching.

 

Often times those who find the most success are those who are working with a coach to get results.

 

If you are reading this you likely are involved with CrossFit 330 so you have already seen the value of coaching.

 

What you may not have thought of up until this part is getting some supplemental one on one training, or small group training to improve certain aspects of your training.

 

Want to improve your lifting?

 

Scheduling a one on one session with a coach to work on your form may be a great way for you to improve it!

 

Want to get your nutrition under control?

 

Getting involved in FUEL for personalized nutrition coaching will 100% do that!

 

Want to improve your pull ups, muscle ups, etc?

 

One on one training with a coach or small group gymnastics club will give you the auxiliary work to do that!

 

Feeling intimidated by the barbell?

 

Setting up one on one time where are the attention is on YOU for a couple sessions may alleviate that anxiety.

 

Now, for the record, I am not saying everyone needs one on one or small group training for everything.

 

CrossFit is the best workout methodology I’ve seen in my 16 years in health and wellness so I know you will see results.

 

But, if you are trying to hit certain goals and are struggling to do it on your own then getting some additional coaching to supplement your training may be the right next step for you.
