Quarterly Progress Checks

Next week 8/14-2/21 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 on Sunday at Open Gym on 8/14 or 8/21 from 11am-12pm OR any Open Gym during the week.
2. Goal-Setting & reflection: At the beginning of class on Mon & Tues, we’ll take 5 minutes to reflect on our progress over the last three months and since the beginning of 2016. We’ll look to set some goals for the next quarter. If you prefer to spend more time on goal-setting, join Mike next Thursday evening, August 18th from 7-7:30pm 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.
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 2017. If you have any questions about Quarterly Progress Checks (QPC), ask your coach at the gym or email us.

Together we rise.  Together we prevail. Forward to the morning.
