Fitness is a lot like relationships, you can’t cheat and expect for things to work out for you. 🥴
Cutting corners doesn’t get you to your goals faster. Shaving reps off doesn’t make you fitter, shortening your range of motion doesn’t get you stronger, and gloating about your time doesn’t make you the best athlete.
_
In the end, doing all of those things doesn’t affect anyone else’s fitness but your own.
Keeping it real with yourself maintains your integrity and shows you value every part of your journey and those of others no matter where it begins.
_
Fitness is more about the 23 hours you spend OUTSIDE of the gym. You can’t out train poor sleep, an unbalanced diet, little water intake, and mental health.
If you’re doing everything right in training but still aren’t seeing progress, chances are there’s a missing piece of a larger puzzle that needs a bit more attention.
_
However overwhelming fitness can be, the hardest part is taking that step forward to do something about it and staying consistent with it.
We believe you can do it. Do you?

Today looks like a really good day to work on your health. 👍🏽
Fitness doesn’t have to be heavy barbells and or mimic insane intensity like those popular videos you see on your discovery page.
What are some things you can do to get started?
_
• Walk around your neighborhood for 30min. Add in some air squats and lunges every few minutes to switch it up and add some extra spice🔥
•Dance in your living room
•Do Some yard work
•Pick up a recreational sport like disc golf or handball
•perform isometric holds or body weight movements throughout your at home work day
_
Foregoing movement because you lack equipment or a space is the excuse we give when we just don’t want to commit to moving.
The world is your gym. Every little bit counts. 🙌🏽

It’s squat day and all of a sudden you look down at your 86 year old hips and wonder how in the heck you’re going to open them up. 😳
_
Sitting for prolonged periods of time can do a number on your mobility. Hip flows are a great way to increase blood flow to your hip region and increase your range of motion through dynamic movement.
_
Here’s coach @cassg22 favorite flow. Perform 10 reps of each movement (more of you need it).
Make sure to squeeze your butt to open the hips further and give your hip flexor some love.
_
More hip opening tips coming your way!

Reminding you that you have the power to change your reality and get what you want out of this life.
Progress isn’t linear and you’re going to have set backs but that’s where we grow and become more than what we thought we could be.
Here’s to a fresh week!

We will be closed Monday September 7th for the holiday but that doesn’t mean fitness can’t be done!
Be sure to check your SugarWOD for some workout options that you can do from home if you’re itching to sweat a little. 😁👍🏽
We’ll be back to normal schedule on Tuesday for our reload week before we start a brand new cycle September 14th.

Box jumps.
They’re a skill that a lot of people who have them don’t think about often or nearly at all.
There’s no denying that fear one is filled with on their first attempt at one, especially when it is at a height they’ve never tried before.
It’s a rush.
Your heart rate spikes,
Your hands start to sweat,
And doubt tries it’s hardest to get you to walk away.
When you do get it though, and those two feet hit the top as you stand up mannnnnnnnn does it feel good. 😁
@cristina_corales knows what we’re talking about. During a workout a few weeks back she shook that doubt off and completed box jumps for the first time and has been doing them since.
Way to go mama. Keep up that courageous spirit!

It’s recovery day but that doesn’t mean we aren’t putting in any work!
We’ve got box handstand leg lifts on the menu for today. 🤸🏼‍♂️
This is a drill we use to reinforce our stacked position while simultaneously working coordination of our lower half while inverted, and straight arm strength endurance.
There’s a lot that’s happening for @leokarge1 here to make the drill work for him and he’s doing a great job maintaining that stacked position as he alternated legs.
Way to go bud!

💥 FALSE GRIP HOLDS 💥
.
.
False grip holds are a challenging but important skill to strengthen if you’re looking to improve the quality of your bar work/muscle ups or prepare yourself to do them one day.
_
These can be very uncomfortable in the beginning so start assisted if you’ve never tried these before.
Use a box or bench to self assist and take some body weight load off of your wrists to focus on what you’re doing.
_
As you grow more comfortable you can increase the amount of time you spend on the bar and use your assistive device less.
Progress to full fist over the bar with full body weight loaded.
_
⚡️ACTIVATE YOUR LATS. ⚡️
This is not a dead hang.
Ensure you’re engaging your lats and pull your shoulder blades down to lock them in a more stable supportive position.

You can’t grow into the diamond that you are without a little pressure.
When something’s weighing you down you can always push right back.
Happy Tuesday everyone!

There are people in this life that can change you in a way you didn’t think you needed to.
Gabe did that for us.
He walked through our doors some years back a young kid that just loved to workout and hang with his friends. Who doesn’t?
Little did we know what he would transform into in just a few short months and what kind of an imprint he would leave in our hearts forever.
He’s a kind man, a generous and noble one too. What we love most about him though, is his determined spirit.
Gabe has worked endlessly toward his dream of serving others through the fire department.
For years he pushed himself physically and mentally in hopes to earn his place among a highly competitive group of men fighting for the same spot. With many lessons learned he rose in spite of some very difficult defeats and was was inspired to work harder.
It’s your time now buddy.
You did it.
This parting is bittersweet. We’d be lying if we said this doesn’t gut us but our elation over this accomplishment outweighs any sadness we feel in your absence.
Thank you for your coaching, your friendship, and your undying love and compassion for people.
You made this place a home and we can’t wait to see what you do and where this next chapter takes you.
Do YOU.

From GTB —> GTF
Gabe the Babe to Gabe The Fireman 🤣

Moving with intention, what does that even mean?
It means being where your feet are and focusing on what you’re doing.
It’s listening to your body and what it’s trying to say.
It’s hearing feedback and making adjustments in order to move more efficiently and safely.
It’s kicking ego to the curb and modifying according to YOU.
_
One of our main goals as coaches is to get you to focus LESS on how much weight is on the bar and MORE on how to move.
Worry less about the movements you don’t have and care more about the ones you do and how well you can do them at any speed.
_
Gift yourself awareness, the ability to see, feel, and adapt to what you experience during your fitness.
The more mindful we become, the more we move with virtuosity.
_
@chrisdangerwastaken was 4 rounds into a 5 round intensity interval. Was he fatigued? Yes. Can you tell by this video? Likely not.
The attention he and others place in their movements allow them to not be inhibited by the skills they need to perform.
Well done Chris. 👍🏼
