This post is a little overdue, but it was in my mind today and it's worth sharing. It is about progression and how a plan or program can get you where you want to go. The perfect example of this in our gym is Melissa. I am so proud of the work she put in a month ago to get her to her goal of doing pullups. She had been working pullups in class every time they came up, but sometimes that isn't enough to get you where you want to be as fast as you want to get there. We put together a simple five-week plan that had her doing two extra days of pullup work each week. She did it on her own time before or after class and she stuck to it. Now, Melissa does workouts with pullups regularly and every time I see her do a pullup I smile knowing that her hard work paid off and she deserves it. Now looking back, those five weeks were nothing and the only regret is that she waited so long to conquer it. A lot of us have goals, but too often we take a haphazard approach to reaching them. We will come in one day and try whatever over and over for a few minutes and then give up. Then a couple of weeks later we'll do the same thing and wonder why we aren't any better than last time. It's easy to see when we look back, we simply didn't do the work, but at the time all we can think is that we are trying so hard.
If you have a goal you need to put in the work. There is no other way. If you are unsure of how to progress to where you want to be please talk to the coaches and we can help. If you just want to be pointed in the right direction and have someone help you out from time to time we are always available. We also offer personal programming services if you want something very specific and written out, and the price is based on the frequency and duration of the program. Stop being frustrated in your workouts because you are stuck on something you should have mastered long ago. Let's put together a plan and get you to your goals.
