“Mental toughness is not about winning; it’s about not quitting.”
There are many facets of your life that require mental toughness. Work, raising a family, school, CrossFit, and other aspects of your day to day can require a lot of mental fortitude. Some days are easy, but a lot of days aren’t. How you respond and adapt to these days that aren’t easy is what makes you the person you are. Consistency and hard work are key. There are days here at the gym that will feel like they could break you; mentally and physically. But it won’t. There are days at work or school where throwing in the towel is the best option. But it isn’t. Dig down deep, find that drive. Find that fire in your belly that moves your body and mind forward.
Some people confuse consistency with monotony, but don’t forget, the best athletes in the game will do the same thing thousands of times until they’ve perfected it. Use the community around you, cheer on each other’s victories, whether big or small. We are one big team here at CFSS. Even with our different backgrounds, our different day to day lives, when that clock starts, and a workout begins, all that fades away for a few minutes. Give your current tasks your full effort, and you’ll reap the rewards. This applies to any area of your life, but especially here in the gym.
What’s your goal? Really think hard about it. Want to be able to chase the kids around the yard without getting winded? Or do you want to compete in a CrossFit competition and walk home with a medal? Are you hoping to build muscle to feel more confident? Or just hoping to make some healthy lifestyle changes overall? Whatever your goal is, we want to help you get there. And once we get you there, set a new goal. Don’t become complacent once you reach where you’re going. The most successful people in life are always planning that next step, that next project, that next level.
In the end, PR’s are great. Shaving time off your mile run feels awesome. But overall, we want this place to make you feel good, and for that to spill over into every area of your life. What’s your goal? What do you want to accomplish? Tell us. Let us help you get there.
