We all wear multiple 'hats' in our lives, from being a parent or sibling to being a coworker to being an athlete. One of the hats I wear from time to time is that of a Commissioner on the Audit Committee in the City of Glendale (yes, really). Today, I have another Audit Committee meeting and it got me thinking about the importance of auditing in areas other than finance. For athletes, it is important occasionally to audit our fitness to ensure that we are getting the results we are expecting and, if not, to determine the reason why. If you find that the the results are as expected or even beyond, then identifying the variables (e.g. consistency, effort, program, and/or nutrition) that contribute to those results can help you repeat them in the future. So, take the time to look through your workout and nutrition logs (you are logging, aren't you?) and audit your fitness. You may just find how to improve on an already great thing or how to get a derailed train back on the tracks! As always, if you need any help then come see your coaches!

Recording your nutritional intake and workouts is one of the most important habits you must develop during your journey toward elite fitness. While it takes some time and can become tedious, the act of logging turns what you've accomplished and what you put into your body a record that can be reviewed, analyzed, and looked back upon in the future in order to determine what is working and what isn't. For example, if an athlete asks me how they can improve their strength, the first question that comes to mind is what they are currently doing and how or why that might be deficient in meeting their goals. If the athlete doesn't have the answer to that question, then it becomes difficult to suggest the best course of action ("lift heavy stuff" is always decent advice at that point).
In order to realize movement on your goals you must be prepared to measure and record. This concept is also one of the main reasons we require prospective members to attend a complimentary one-on-one introduction, so that we may measure their abilities and deficiencies in the 10 components of fitness to better coach them towards elite fitness.
