Quarterly Progress Checks

This week 8/14-8/20 is the quarterly progress checks where we retest workouts from the previous year. There will be benchmark WODs or lifts each day.

Is this your first Quarterly Check-In Week?

Here’s what’s about to go down…
1. Retest your baseline! For one of your workouts for the week, you’ll retest your Baseline. You also have the option to retest your Baseline WOD in all classes today or any Open Gym during the week.
2. Goal-Setting & reflection: At the beginning of class on Mon & Tues, we’ll take 10 minutes to reflect on our progress over the last three months into the beginning of 2017 and set some goals for the next quarter. If you prefer to spend more time on goal-setting, join Mike Thursday evening, May 17th from 8-8:30pm for a goal-setting workshop. We’ll take some time to visualize what we want our future to be like, then set smaller, action steps to achieve our longer-term goals. Additional times will be made available through the week.
3. Record your results! If you haven’t been doing it already, now is the time to start tracking your progress in the gym. Use the Zen Planner Phone App, or you can track through the Zen Planner web page. Or Google Docs, or old school with a journal. We have journals available at the ProShop.

It’s time to put all your hard work and training to the test. Are we getting fitter? Are we healthier? Next week marks the perfect time to re-evaluate our goals and make plans with actionable steps for the next 3 months and into the last quarter of 2017. If you have any questions about Quarterly Progress Checks (QPC), ask your coach at the gym or email us.

CrossFit Journal: The Forgotten Part of the Deadlift By John Zimmer. The lift doesn’t stop when the bar is at the top.
