SPOTLIGHT ON – KELLY!
- When did you join CFSR & why?
I joined CFSR last fall after my husband, who had already joined kept coming home and telling me all about it and started encouraging me to go as well. Initially I was very hesitant and didn’t think I would ever be “that type of a hard core athlete,” yet after weeks of him encouraging me to go, I finally went and realized how fun it was and how down to earth all of the other people were too. Just other moms and dads and individuals wanting to get in shape.
- What positive changes have you felt, noticed, etc?
I’ve learned so many new skills and tried box jumps, kettle bells and other equipment I’ve always been too intimidated to try. The workouts push me to work harder than I ever thought I could push myself on my own. I feel so much healthier and less hungry after the workouts too and feel so much better in my clothes.
- What keeps you coming to CFSR?
The people. It’s not just a gym, it’s a family. Everyone is so encouraging and positive and we’re all there to help motivate and encourage one another. It’s just a fun place to go. Even our kid’s love coming and working out now too!
How long have you been a CrossFitter and why did you start?
Hmm…I think I have been a CrossFitter for about a year and a half. However I haven’t always been consistent.
Since you started, have you seen any positive changes in your mind, body, or health in general?
Oh for sure! All of the above!! For example, working out here has changed my perspective on my self-esteem and what it means to be strong, plus my blood pressure is stable!
What is your favorite part of CrossFit San Ramon?
Everything, I love the sense of community and camaraderie, and the coaches of course!
Spotlight On – Josh C!
Q. How long have you been a Crossfitter and why did you start?
A. I have been crossfitting for 2 years. I have always loved fitness. I started Crossfit for the challenge, something different but the thing I like the most is the community and everyone supports one another no matter your level of fitness
Q. Since you started, have you seen any positive changes in your body, mind or health in general?
A. Yes, I’ve never felt better!
Q. What is your favorite part of CrossFit San Ramon?
A. The People. The coaches are great and the community just makes you want to be better!
Run 2 miles
15 Clean and Jerk (BW/.75)
10 Rope climbs
Coaches corner: You can complete the reps and miles in any way you think will allow the fastest time possible. If you choose to run a mile at a time the miles will be flat.
Time for some mega protein. Sorry for the few swear words, but something tells me you guys dont mind.
Love every word of this article. If you dont want to ready it at least read this part. Steps to mastery.
Over the longer-term (months to years), progress is not linear, but is more of a step function. Again, musicians know this only too well—you will work for weeks and weeks, and sometimes even have the experience that you are actually getting worse at what you’re doing. (Let me tell you, that is awesome, especially if you’re putting in solid 6-8 hour days.) Then, in a sudden burst, you will wake up one morning and have made massive progress seemingly overnight, or perhaps you will make incredible progress in a few days. What has happened is that the hard work finally paid dividends, but it can come after many weeks or months of no progress. Your growth will not be a line or curve… more like a series of plateaus and steps. Most people get lost here because they lose faith on the plateaus, or they think they magically got better because “they are just that good.” No, you didn’t, and you aren’t.
Remember that the new schedule has started. The is no longer a noon class, it is not open gym time. We added a 5:30pm class as well.
An update on Sarahs cooking class. It will not be this weekend. My moms birthday is this week and I didnt realize that she will not be able to come in. So we will be pushing it back a bit. We have 20+ people signed up so we may have to break it up into 2 classes. Sarah let me know that the costs of the supplies will prob work out to $50 a person so if that is too steep just cross your name off the list.
Those that are going to participate in the CF open starting in 2 WEEKS please let me know as Im trying to figure out how we will run the WODs so you can all do them together.
