We recently caught up with one of our teenage athletes, Ethan Jordan. Ethan was one of our very first athletes when we opened our doors and his work ethic and great attitude have prospered amazing results which is why he’s our athlete of the month.
In less than a year, Ethan has been able to lose over 50 pounds while increasing his overall strength. Check out his video and see the transcript below to see how Ethan has been able to succeed in this awesome transformation!
You think CrossFit is just about improving your fitness? You got it all wrong. If you’re looking for a complete overhaul on your current lifestyle and are looking to level up, then look no further. The benefits of CrossFit carry over from fitness into your personal life and everywhere in-between. It’s time to level up your game.
How so, you ask? That’s what I’m here to answer for you. CrossFit is so much more than an exercise program. Because you see an exercise program is simple. The benefit is a healthy body. That’s a no-brainer.
However, because of the intensity and challenge in CrossFit, there is so much value in the workout that’s hardly ever discussed. So let’s discuss it.
The State of Temporary
It’s happened to every human on the planet, including myself. Here’s what normally happened to me. I would get on a fitness kick and it would be awesome for a little while, and then, something in my mind would change and I could no longer sustain the healthy habit I achieved. I would typically feel like I was falling behind at work and so I then replaced my fitness craze with longer work hours.
Of course, I would tell myself this was only “temporary” until I got caught up. After all, I reached my latest fitness goal. Not a time went by where this state of “temporary” didn’t turn into something more long-term.
Think about all the New Years Resolutions out there. Why do we quit our resolutions we so proudly make? Time is a major cause of failure. We no longer have time anymore. Rather, we no longer want to make the time.
So, if not having enough time is the problem. How do we stand to correct it? How do we sustain a life of good health?
