Sometimes you just have to accept that you're going to make some enemies, fall hard in the process, and feel like curling up under a rock and dying. And once your pity party is over, its time to party with a real purpose.
And yes, you might think that this means to drink a disgusting amount of Guiness, and it did, for that night. But now it means, buckle down, grow some balls and get to work.
I got to meet the man behind GoodLife today, and it was pretty eye-opening. Unless your goals are written, they remain as dreams. Goals need to be written and timed, once that is accomplished, you can make a game plan to achieve it.
So what better way to write out my goals then on my blog. Here they are:
10 years: Being an NCCP Olympic Lifting Coach, still doing personal training but at the elite level, doing consultations for my expertise, being PERMAJACKED, bringing a more well-planned and injury-preventative version of CrossFit out. Being highly skilled and educated in olympic lifting, muscle testing, barbell techniques, functional testing and assessment, and applying this to elite sport specific movements.
5 years: Still working at GoodLife, as a Level 5 trainer. Possibly working a bit ouf of CrossFit gyms as well. Being a part of the CrossFit community and competing RX in Regionals. Working towards NCCP certification. Working towards my lifting goals as well; hopefully having achieved a 170 lb clean and jerk. Having extensive knowledge on olympic lifting technique/ progression/regression/ program development.
1 year: Be a level 3 trainer at GoodLife. Qualify for CrossFit regionals. Work maximum hours with 100% satisfied clients seeing amazing results. Start towards reaching the peak of my actual training. Show that CrossFit can be done while remaining injury free. Focus on not binge eating.
I'm sure there are way more, and I will update as needed, but the sound of my fan blowing is really making it hard to focus.
Anyhow, today was new PR's for cleans and bench, hopefully tomorrow follows suit with the snatch :)
Competition is a little bit more than a week away! I feel a win coming :)
