MON 05.18.15 2nd Quarterly Progress Checks

By | Quarterly Progress Checks, WOD | No Comments

Quarterly Progress Checks


This week 5/18-5/23 is the quarterly progress checks where we retest from February 2015. There will be benchmark WODs and lifts every day.

Is this your first Quarterly Check-In Week?


Here's what's about to go down...
1. Retest your baseline! You also have the option to retest your Baseline WOD at Open Gym during the week OR on Saturday, 5/23 on Make up Day...
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 and set some goals for the next quarter. If you prefer to spend more time on goal-setting, join Mike Wednesday evening, May 20th from 8-830pm 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.
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 on your phone, 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.
4. Saturday is a Make-Up Day. In the 11am Open Gym on Saturday you'll have the chance to make up a workout you missed earlier in the week.
