Attitude Shift

ath•lete / Noun: A person who is proficient in sports and other forms of physical exercise.

Do you think of yourself as an athlete? If not, it's time to change your way of thinking.

All of you are athletes. You may not compete in an organized sport, but you are in a never-ending quest for increased capacity, strength, speed and skill.

You train like an athlete every time you come to CFVB. Instead of performing bicep curls in hopes to impress those of the opposite sex, you are working on your muscle-up. You aren't logging hours on the treadmill, mindlessly getting your "cardio" in; you are working on speed in the 400m so you can PR "Helen." You are results-driven. You want to get to the next level.

So, now that you are training like an athlete, ask yourself: Am I eating like an athlete? Am I maintaining my body like an athlete?

If you cannot answer "yes" to both of those questions, you've got some missing link(s). Time to reassess. Diet and mobility will have a direct impact on how you perform, not to mention how you look and feel. If you are neglecting either, you won't meet your full athletic potential.

YOU CAN DO BETTER. Get your diet in check and spend time working on your body. We've given you the information so that you can eat right, stretch and mobilize. If you need more help, we are here!

What is holding you back? Time? Motivation? Attitude? Time for an attitude shift!

  1. Ok, so I want to know how many of you out there think this write up today is meant for you??? Bryan and I said last night, “Wendy is writing about us AGAIN”!! She always seems to know when we need help and are out of control. Don’t be afraid to ask her or Rob, they have loads of information we can all use. Thanks Wendy for keeping us in the game. Now help me get this right one more time please!

  2. I was suprised there were no comments this AM!
    I’ve been noticing a lack of motivation by some. It happens…we are human. But, time to get it back on track. Before we know it, the holidays will be here and then the downward spiral continues.
    On another note, I want to welcome Patrick, Sam and Alison (although she’s been here almost two months). These three newbies are starting out full-force. We are so happy to have you guys!

    I know this was written for my lazy habits. This Quote comes pretty close to home this month. Keep up the motivation , I need it. thanks

  4. It’s not just you, Don. There seems to be a lack of motivation in many over the last few weeks…or longer.
    I also want to look at what we could be doing better to keep everyone energized and on track.
    Thoughts? What’s holding you back? Anything we aren’t doing? Could be doing better? It’s a two-way street.

  5. Motivation comes from within the person, they have to want to do it. You and Rob give us all of the information, you encourage us and try to push us each time we are in the box. I appreciate that very much because we do need those things.

    I think motivation is such a individual decision, each of us moves to different …. bla bla
    get a tramoline for the girls to jump on!


    I wanted to say, as a NEWBIE, that ALL of you have inspired me one way or another with advice, nutrition ideas or with just a “Come on Walmart!” cheer…. I think ALL of you guys are amazing. Every week Im dialing in my PALEO nutrition – every week I learn that I have a long way to go. I have lost a total of 1.5 SCALE lbs in the first four weeks and almost 6.5 bodyfat lbs….I just wanted to say THANK YOU to ROB & WENDY and everyone else who make it what it is…..A FAMILY. See you next week!!!
