Commitment Guest blog with Coach Craig!

Today we have a great guest blog from Coach Craig about Commitment!

Especially with our 60 day Burpee Challenge happening right now, it’s particularly timely.

You may be surprised though.  It isn’t just about lifting more weight or showing up every day…there’s a lot more facets to commitment that we need to consider.

Here’s Coach Craig: 

“People get involved with CrossFit for many different reasons.

Physical improvements, mental health, community, and there are probably a million others.  Whichever reason is the driving factor for you to be a part of CFHV, the first step of your progress is commitment.

With that said, commit to getting better, commit to doing it safely, and commit to having FUN.  After all, it’s YOUR free time you are giving up to go get healthy.

One of the first steps is to make sure your body can do the things you are asking it to do.  

Mobility is crucial for the various movements in CrossFit, and also within your normal lives.  Life has a way of making us all tight so we all have to find a way to become more mobile. 

There are a lot of great ways to do this, but I want to mention a couple of fantastic resources for you to take advantage of.  This first is https://www.mobilitywod.com/

Whether it’s hips, shoulders, muscles, or some other joint that is feeling a bit out of normal, or you just want to become more mobile in general, this website has great videos for you to access and follow along with.

The second is using You Tube.  Type in Kelly Starrett and look at various videos he has online.

Being able to have the mobility to perform a good squat, have a stable core, or lift weight overhead can make a difference in your work out AND your life outside of CFHV.

Next, commit to having fun, to connect with others, and to simply play.

CFHV is a great place to have fun, sweat, and get a little more involved with new people.  Whether it’s an event like “Murph”, a Dodger game, or simply a bite to eat (or drink) afterwards, take that step and commit!

You will be surprised at the benefits that are just around the corner if you do.”
