The New Year's
resolution has become laughable. I question if most people actually give
themselves a couple months effort to follow through on them. I know I've made
them in the past and they are probably similar to the ones you all have made,
such as losing weight, stop drinking, stop smoking, and going to church more
are a few of the most common resolutions. But how many people really follow
through and maintain these until they become actual changes?
In 2012, I did not make
any New Years resolutions. I did not set out to lose weight or get in better
shape. It was March and my good friend suggested that I go and check out a CrossFit
box. I agreed to go see what this place was offering but mostly I wanted to see
how much it was going to cost.
Of course, this step came
after I was sitting at the airport one morning. I looked down and saw my
stomach hanging over my belt. I wasn't sure when or how that happened, but I
sat there staring in disbelief and decided that I needed to make a change.
I read all the time how
annoyed people are from the amount of newbies in the gym the first couple
months after the New Year. They come in, don't know what to do, or where to go,
it makes us feel uncomfortable. Then just like winter, we disappear! I was that
person from time to time. I do feel that if some of the existing members were
more welcoming, maybe the "newbies" would stay longer than a few months and find the
change they are looking for. Perhaps the truth is people aren’t wanted there, which is discouraging for the ones that are trying to stick to their gym routines
I get asked “Why
CrossFit? What’s so different about it?” Aside from the cult aspect of it, not
much. Honestly, it gives me a sense of community and something new to work on
every time I go in and train. Being able to train with others doing the same
WOD (Workout Of the Day) creates a new atmosphere for encouraging energy.
Then sharing the experience of surviving the workout opens the door for a better
personal growth and makes the CrossFit experience different from other things
I’ve tried and not stuck with.
If you’re interested but
nervous about trying CrossFit, there are wonderful CrossFit boxes all around
Dallas and any good ones will welcome you in to try it out for free! Who knows,
you could be grinding away next to me someday. Share some stories about your
CrossFit experiences at [email protected]

"Bob was a pleasure to work with. He turned what could have been a very stressful experience into an exciting and pleasurable experience. My husband and I were first time home buyers and somewhat overwhelmed by the thought of purchasing a home. Bob made us feel at ease. He walked us through the process and really "held our hands." He gave us the utmost confidence in our decisions and found us the perfect home. We ended up recommending him to a family friend who also had a wonderful experience purchasing a home with Bob. I would enthusiastically recommend Bob to anyone considering buying a home-- he has all of the right connections and is such a pleasure to work with. Not to mention his contagious sense of humor!"
