Champions Are Made When No One’s Watching


- by Instructor Training Program member Urán
Let’s be real for a moment. Making the decision to commit to the Whole Life Challenge was not easy for most of us. Hell, even making the decision to join the gym or visit Nashville hot yoga classes was probably something many of us had to sleep on. Why? Because, there are a million excuses why not to eat well/CrossFit/take care of yourself, etc. There are so many things we face each day that threaten to get in the way of the goal of a healthier lifestyle. But we try anyway because our goal is important to us. And at the gym we have our CFM family there cheering us along as we limp through burpees or do our pullups in sets of 1. And celebrating with us when we destroy the WOD that day. We convene to discuss all things diet, and to talk each other off the proverbial ledge when temptations prove to be almost too strong to resist.
But what about the days when you’re not at the gym? When you’re alone trying to get in your workout for that day? When you’re pissed at the world and just wish you didn’t have to cook so much. That’s where the rubber meets the road. That’s where champions are made. You don’t have to win medals, or even win a prize in this challenge, to be a champion. The Whole Life Challenge is a competition for your life. For a better you - in whatever capacity you allow. This is the chance to prove to yourself that you can and will make positive changes in spite of the negative influences you’re faced with. And to remind yourself that if you falter, or take a step backward, that’s all it is. One step. And you can forge ahead with the knowledge that you have the capacity to make your life exactly what you want it to be. This is your chance to make a life you’re proud of, whether you’re surrounded by people watching you or you’re all by yourself. This is your opportunity to be your own champion.

Congrats to Anna on doing her first strict pull-ups last week. And she repped out three in a skirt suit, at that! Back in June she was on a black band for pull ups and now she's showing off unassisted strict pull ups regularly in the gym. Be sure to ask her for a pull up next time you see her at CFM!

Today's hydrostatic testing is cancelled

Body comp testing has been cancelled. The truck/test operator had a death in the family. Those who signed up will receive a complimentary test when he reschedules (probably next week... stay tuned for details).

Yoga is coming!

CrossFitters need yoga. We can all benefit from being more mobile, mindful and having better body control. That's why we're psyched to announce that CrossFit Midtown will be adding yoga classes to our regular schedule. Eventually, we aim to offer four classes a week at various times, but we're starting with one.
When: Wednesdays at 1:15pm beginning today (more class times are coming!)
Where: In the box
Who can attend?: All CFM students are welcome to attend. This will count as one of your regular weekly classes, so you will check in as usual. Guests are also welcome to join the class for a $15 drop-in fee. DON'T FORGET YOUR YOGA MAT!
Who's teaching?:Beth was the first student to register at CrossFit Midtown! Aside from being #1, she's also a talented yoga instructor, so I am thrilled to add her class to the CFM schedule!
Beth is a 200-hr Registered Yoga Instructor and a licensed psychotherapist with a private practice in Midtown Atlanta. She has been practicing yoga for 11 years, starting when a friend introduced her to Bikram Yoga (a type of hot yoga) in 2001. She now teaches and practices a vinyasa style for all levels. She incorporates therapeutic yoga into her classes by focusing on common musculoskeletal imbalances and working toward creating a balance between core strength and flexibility. She is currently in the internship phase of her training with the Pranakriya program in Atlanta and will be a Certified Yoga Therapist and 500-hr instructor by March of next year. Beth also leads therapeutic, mindfulness based and trauma sensitive yoga groups in her counseling practice. She believes anyone can practice yoga and loves working with beginners. No experience or flexibility is required to start, but you will become more flexible with practice. There are modifications of every pose that can make yoga accessible to anybody. Do what you can with what you have, where you are now, without judgment. Acceptance is the heart of yoga and the key to creating positive change.
