054: One Year Of CrossFit, What Have I Learned?

I have been doing CrossFit for just about a year; in this week’s episode I share 5 things that I have learned in that year. When I started CrossFit I already had a good base of strength build up. However, if you don’t have a lot of strength or haven't ever picked up a barbell, that  should not keep you away from a CrossFit Box! CrossFit is a great work out that provides variety, a community, accountability, and support, as you build strength. 

5 Takeaways from this One Year of CrossFit episode:

  • There are a lot of perceptions about CrossFit, you would probably be surprised to see how inaccurate most of them are – the point and focus has changed since it started. 
  • Regardless of how you exercise/train, it is ALWAYS you vs. you. 
  • The best way to learn anything, fitness included, is to layer habits. Master one part and then add another. 
  • If you aren’t feeling challenged, it’s time for you to find something else. 
  • Getting stronger is ALWAYS a good idea, no matter what your goals are. 

I have really enjoyed my time at CrossFit. I love the variety, and think that most people would highly benefit from the community feel, variance in workouts, and more focused coaching. That being said, if you have specific training goals, it may not be the best option for you.

053: How to Believe Your Success Is Inevitable with Amber Smith

Amber has life coach, Amber Smith, on to chat about success in your fitness, and in your life. Amber teaches how the secret to success can be found in your thoughts and beliefs. Both Ambers share the likeness in their coaching theories and practices. They agree that a client's failure is a result of simply giving up and not following through. When, instead, if they had simply stuck with it and trusted the process, they could have gotten where they wanted to be. 

Highlights on this Success is Inevitable Podcast Episode:

  • You are the creator and cause of your thoughts and life, not the effect. 
  • The way you can view beliefs as a combination of your thoughts and feelings and how to use both those sources to check in with yourself and change your beliefs if need be. 
  • It is great to learn new things and have new, positive thoughts, but without action they are worthless. Until you take actions, you won’t make any lasting changes. 
  • The point of having goals is not necessarily to get the end result – learning from and enjoying the process along the way is going to help you learn and grow and develop into the person you want to be. 
  • if you don't currently have the results that you want, there is a a belief and thoughts in between you and that result

Success is Inevitable Episode Takeaway:

You are the only one who can truly make changes in your life. Your thoughts and beliefs are either empowering you, or hindering you- and until you align them with where you want to be, you will stay stuck and frustrated. Learning how to change your beliefs into positive, powerful thoughts is a process; and that process is going to be just as rewarding as reaching the goal you are working towards.
