Wellness Edition

Happy weekend! This is sort of a Wellness edition as I’ve just finished teaching a 9 am Saturday class and it’s been too long. For many, many years I was the Saturday morning coach. Really enjoyed experiencing that unique energy, again.

Whole Life Challenge starts one week from today, January 20!

I believe the upcoming Whole Life Challenge is a great way to start kicking around several important lifestyle topics. We have 60 registrations and I want more. Over the past several years we’ve mostly stayed away from encouraging you to consider decisions and behavior outside the gym. Reflecting on the past and taking that long look in the mirror reminds me that I didn’t have my own act together, thus it was difficult to honestly and sincerely support you much beyond fitness. Times have definitely changed and within the last couple years I have found a new trajectory. So pleased to feel a foundation and be ready to share a few insights.

We Might Be On To Something

Just a few days back I sent a note to our team of coaches (now 20 strong!) reflecting on the year, looking ahead, also noting the speed and demands and stress in our lives. If one thing is for certain, life is happening. And there is no sign of it slowing anytime soon. As I sit and pen this note to all of you, I want to pause and share that same sentiment with you.  You figure it out. You balance a lot. Rarely is finding that balance easy and some days just not possible. You may be starting out raising young children or children wrestling adolescence or a daughter figuring out life through her evolving teenage lens. Or maybe no kids, but managing a career or two careers or considering a career change. Thank you. Thank you for putting your feet on the floor early in the morning or scheduling your work day around our schedule fighting not to miss a mid-morning class opportunity or scrambling back to Novato fighting traffic and making time in the evening to walk through our door. How much better do you we feel when we leave? We might be on to something.

The Whole Life Challenge begins January 20, 2018

Here’s a post I just published to our private FB page:

Ok. Wanted to come back to Facebook and let you know that I’m fired up to announce the Whole Life Challenge (WLC) is coming back to CFN. This 2018 New Year Health and Lifestyle challenge will begin January 20, 2018.
For those of you have participated in the past, they’ve made some nice improvements to the application and overall delivery of info and game rules. We also have plans to create a private Google Group (almost half of us are not on Facebook), so that we can dig deeper into topics you’d like to discuss.
For those of you unfamiliar with the WLC, for six weeks we will practice 7 Daily Habits designed to help us make some healthy adjustments.
The WLC is both work – involves commitment, some discipline and making some other choices and behavior changes – and it’s fun. Join the CrossFit Novato team here http://www.whole.lc/wlc1801/pt/cfn
The Early Bird discount ends January 3, 2018!

The Foundation of Fitness

Hope that everyone is having a good week. The Holidays are upon us and I find myself with so much to be thankful for. At the same time, what a year it has been for so many! One thing is for certain. Life is happening. And it doesn’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon.

On behalf of Karen and the Team, I wish you all quality time with family and friends and all the delicious food and drink you may safely and most happily enjoy.

Tired of Social Media

I recently kicked the social media habit removing Twitter, Instagram and Facebook aps from my phone. Sweet relief. My brain hasn’t quite adapted as I still find myself looking for my approval fix. Likes, comments, thumbs-up emojis all feel so good. In the end, I realized how much time I spent observing and evaluating, often forming judgements about other people. If I wasn’t evaluating their life, I often had opinions re: their misguided use – my perceived abuse – of a given social media platform. Enough. Time to let others have the social media without my judgment. I do see the positive side of social media platforms and appreciate all that is entertaining and collaborative. To that, our private Facebook page will continue to be an important gathering place and we will continue to publish workout material via SugarWod.
