MON 01.06.13 Big 2014 goals

Big 2014 goals:

by Coach Lis
Just like every month, we've erased the Goals board at the gym & there's a blank slate just waiting for everyone to add new goals for the month & the year. Think of it as your community accountability partner. That goal will be up there all month, encouraging you to get after it with every training session!
I've got some big goals to post on the board that I also want to share here on the blog, using you guys as my unofficial accountability partners moving into 2014.
This year I'll be stepping back from the day-to-day operations of CrossFit Midtown to explore a few of my other passions... business coaching & personal training.
I'll still be coaching classes, leading intros & training regularly at CFM. I'm also starting a local business coaching group to help Atlanta area CrossFit affiliates & other small gyms become better businesses. And I'll be doing some personal training at CFM & around the Atlanta area.
I often marvel at the power of the CrossFit rumor mill & the awesome stories I hear about myself! So I just want to set the record straight that I am NOT leaving CrossFit Midtown. I'm still part owner of this business & will continue to be an active part of this community I love so much.
This month we'll be hiring a full-time Operations Manager to take CFM to the next level.
If you want more details on the Operations Manager position (maybe you know someone who's a great fit!?!), or have any feedback or questions at all for me, please email me or snag me at the box.
What are your big goals for 2014? Post in the comments!

imageCongrats to all who set & achieved goals in December. Post your new ones at the box this week!
