CFW Weekly Update for February 23, 2020
Level Method testing was a huge success. We are so proud of all of you. What is especially interesting is seeing long time members levelling up. Many of our members start seeing a slight slow in progress as they enter the blue/purple/brown levels. This is because when we first start CrossFit our bodies adapt quickly, not just physically but neurologically, as we are still learning the movements so we make super fast gains early on. Many of us expect that this super fast progress will keep going forever, but the fitter we get the harder we have to work at not only training, but nutrition, sleep and stress management, in order to level up as quickly as before. So when I see members who have been with us for several years levelling up, we know how hard you are working, we know how consistent you have to be to do that, we know how hard you’ve worked! On the other hand, it’s also hard for new members to get started, to get that momentum going. When we first get started, it takes an insane amount of motivation to make those habit changes, to put ourselves out there and be a beginner at something. It’s hard on the ego to start something new, and even harder to gain enough consistency to get the ball rolling. So each training age has its own challenges, and we recognize it and are here to help. It’s amazing to see progress at all training ages and levels. Congrats!
