One of the most important aspects of our journey towards elite fitness is consistency. A simple idea, but not easy to execute (like most things in CrossFit), consistency requires the commitment to do the same types of things day in and day out, even when one feels tired, sick, or even a little bored by the daily grind. While CrossFit is fun for me, because I am constantly seeing improvement and I am rarely stuck in a "chest/tri's, back/bi's" routine, consistency can still be difficult to achieve. One of the most important factors in staying consistent are your friends and family. If your support group understands your goals and works actively in supporting them, you will have a much easier time staying consistent. If your friends don't understand what you're doing or why you're doing it, then you sometimes feel like you're carrying an extra weight around your shoulders. Communicate with your friends and family what your fitness goals are and why you are going about reaching them the way you are and you will have a powerful support group on your way towards elite fitness. And don't forget to thank them for their support along the way!
