A lot of members at CrossFit 818 have just approached or are about to approach their 1st Quarter of Training with us. This is a great stage for YOU and is a time to celebrate all the hard work, time and commitment you have put into your health and fitness. But this is ONLY the beginning...
What YOUR Coaches are looking for from you?
All of the coaches at CrossFit 818 have HIGH expectations for each and everyone of you. We base those expectations on the goals you have given us. I hope you understand how committed we are to your goals, because we ARE! Which is whey we have built in Quarterly Check-In's with you. A lot can happen in 3 months during CrossFit, especially in your 1st 3 months. These Quarterly Check-In appointments will ensure that you are getting everything you want out of CrossFit 818.
To help prepare you a little more about what goes on during your Quarterly Check-In here is what we like to cover:
1- How's your Progress? Goals? Where you need work? Goal Setting? This part is a self check of everything that is going on with you. In your CrossFit journey (esp in the beginning) you are going to learn a lot about yourself not only physically but mentally and emotionally. Communicating with us about everything that is going on with you is only going to help you improve, be more confident and in-turn provide you with better results!
Where were you at (fitness wise) when you walked through our doors?
Where are you now?
What were your initial goals??? (Get 'in-shape'? Lose weight? Kick your meds?)
Are your goals starting to change? (Do all workouts RX? Consecutive Double Unders? OH Squat 95lbs. 15 in a row
Take a few moments before we meet and review your thoughts, get some specific questions to go over and review your journal and notes. Speaking of your Journal...
2- Journal Review. You have been journaling right??? I know. Journal is probably the easiest/hardest thing to do, especially after you are in the fetal position for 10 minutes after a workout that just CRUSHED you. But journaling is MANDATORY for you to improve faster and get your money's worth. Everyone knows how important journaling is but we don't have many of you with a complete journal at this quarterly meet up. Health and FITness is science. You eat cleaner and workout smarter you get the results that you want. The more detailed you are, the more you have an opportunity to GUARANTEE your goals. And your coaches can help you tremendously when you present to us a complete food and workout log. Don't believe me? Put it and us to the test. I know in my 11 years of coaching it is night and day for those that journal diligently and get results to those that don't and well...DON'T!
3- Your Expectations of US? In your initial one on one introductory appointment with we talked a BIG game. "Our Coaches are the BEST." We contact you in you don't show up for a week or longer. We help you with your nutrition. We provide you a clean and organized gym. We are dedicated to our programming. Etc, etc, etc...
So how are we doing?
Are we meeting YOUR expectations?
Is your experience everything you want and need to improve/hit your goals/get results?
What can we do better?
Anything missing you would like us to implement?
We consider this part of the Quarterly Check-In a formal time to chat with you and be candid and help us make your CrossFit 818 experience the BEST. With that said, we appreciate each and every one of you at CrossFit 818. It has been an amazing (almost) 5 months here and you all have so much potential its scary! Keep up the great work.
Are you excited?! Last year's #1 and #2 Fittest Men in the World share their thoughts and training heading up to the Games.
