Last week was about your CF 818 CheerLeaders. Now lets flip it around…
I have a great story of a client last year at my old box in Sioux Falls: his nickname at the box is the “Mayor” aka Jason Van Ruler. A little history on the Mayor: He started his CF journey Feb 2010 and has officially lost 50LBS!…to repeat, “HE HAD LOST 50LBS!”. He was in the Top 3 of our Paleo Challenge II. He has consistently showed up to the box 3x a week since Feb 2010 and most of those are POWER 1/2 Hour classes. So with a little time (less than 3 hrs) per week, lots of effort and having a great attitude, “HE HAS LOST 50LBS!”. It has also improved all other aspects of his life, he is more: motivated, happy, healthy, less pain, more energy, etc…
This being said, every time he meets important people in his life they still give him grief.
Person X: Mannn you look great Jason!
Mayor: Thanks! I feel great.
Person X: What have you been doing?
Mayor: I’m doing CrossFit. And I have lost over 50lbs.
Person X: Wow that’s great. What is up with your hands?
Mayor: We did a crazy Pullup-Thruster workout and my calluses on my hand ripped. I have been SORE all week! It's great:-)
Person: X: You got to stop going there! They are ‘hurting’ you! That can’t be good for your body!?
Mayor: What are you talking about? You JUST said how great I look???
Person X: No one’s hands should look like that and you should never be SORE for that long.
They are out there, we all have them. The people in your life (family or close friends) that just don’t get it (CF):
What do they tell you?
Any funny stories?
How do you respond to them?
How do you deal with them?
CF818 veterans...What would you tell a fellow newbie CF’er?
Newbie’s, do you struggle with the ‘nay-sayers’ in your life?
