Trust the Program…2/1/15

This past Saturday, Heather , Steph U, and Margaret competed in Orlando at the “War on Wall Street” competition. While I was not able to be there as I normally am, I kept in contact with those that were and as expected they performed very well and with the class that makes our gym community so comforting. They took a 4th place finish in the final WOD and finished in 8th overall…in the RX division!! I’m incredibly proud to have these three wear our CFG shield and represent our box!!

Every now and then, I have to take a minute and remind people that I take very seriously the job of writing effective programming for each and every one of you. Tonight is the most recent. But it’ll be short, I promise:

Trust the program.

That is all.

Stop adding weight to workouts because you feel like “it’s not heavy enough.” (I see this most often from the guys.)

How about these suggestions:

– Rest less.

– Move better.

Respect the process.

“Team Buns and Guns” above trusts me.

Coach Jay trusts me.
