January 2020 Goals

2020 is here and along with a new year and decade, comes a new energy and desire to make changes for the better. It's an opportunity to wipe the slate clean, and think ahead to “what’s next", or what do I want to accomplish this year.

Of course we're talking about goal setting, and this can be a powerful tool in reaching your desired goal...if done with careful planning and mindful execution.

I recently came across a great goal setting system called S.M.A.R.T., and I think this is an amazing tool to help you set a goal and reach it, whether your goal is fitness related or not.

I've used S.M.A.R.T. in setting my 2020 fitness goal, so let's use mine as an example - to complete a 30 inch box jump:

Specific:

Name your goal & be specific.  "I want to jump up on the 30 inch box".

Measurable:

How will I know I’m progressing and getting close to reaching the goal? "I can jump comfortably on the 20" and the 24", and I can step up on the 30".

Attainable:

Is this goal a possibility with my current fitness level? Yes, I can jump on the 24", step on the 30" and with the help of coaches on either side of the box, jump up using my hands.

Realistic:

Is this realistic? Yes, I have 20 minutes of my training time, four times per week to dedicate to the required specific training, and I have a personal friend who can coach me through it, as they've already accomplished it.

Timely:

ISet a date to complete this goal – my set date is by end of  January 31, 2020.

I hope this helps you set and achieve your goals too - check out my progress on Instagram here.

EXPRESS 30 Minute Sessions and Small Group Training

PT EXPRESS 30

It seems we are all time-pressed these days, and often it's our extracurricular fitness that suffers - it's just hard to fit it in.

We get it - and it's why we are introducing a new Personal Training program called PT Express 30. If you're time challenged, and our regular class times don't work for you, then maybe this is the solution. A 30 minute session just for you, when you can fit it in. 30 minutes is just enough time to get a short warm-up, an intense 20 to 25 minute fitness blast, and a few stretches before you're off. All under the close supervision of one of our top coaches, who will also custom tailor a work-out just for you.

Single Session: $45, Pack of 5: $40 Each, or Pack of 10: $35 Each

Email Lea to inquire or book your first session

SMALL GROUP TRAINING

We are also now taking bookings for Small Group Personal Training. Maybe you have a work-out buddy or two who would like to join you for a private session with one of our coaches - great idea!

It's so flexible and so productive! You can choose a time that best PT1suits you and your group, and with the numbers this low you are going to get lots of personal attention from a qualified coach. You'll get faster results, and this is an economical way of getting that personal, tailored attention.

Small Groups up to 4 Participants. Session price is dependent on number of people and number of sessions.

Member Of The Month - Tim Lewis

We like to think of ourselves as not just a place to work out, but a community. As with any community, we share lots of goals and interests, but we are also made up of individuals so it's fun and insightful to have a look at what makes us unique, within our community. Let's learn more about one of our regulars - Tim.

Q: How long have you been a member at Energia & CrossFit Greektown?

A: I’ve been a member at Energia since September, 2016.

Q: What classes do you attend regularly?

A: CrossFit. I’m far too impatient for yoga…

Q: What sort of fitness did you do prior to joining?

A: I was sort of doing CrossFit things without appropriate training. The coaching has resulted in large improvements in all movements, and I’m not nearly as injured as I used to be.

Q: What keeps you motivated to come so often?

A: I feel better when I exercise than when I don’t – at least that’s true most days.

Q: What’s your favourite CrossFit WOD or exercise & why?

A: The Murph, possibly the greatest workout ever invented. It’s all bodyweight (at least if you do it without the vest), and the movements (pull ups, push ups, air squats) are probably my best ones.

Q: What's one thing you've achieved in CrossFit that you're happy/surprised about?

A: At the moment, I’d say it’s being able to do double unders. I couldn’t skip to save my life when I was a child, so to be able to do that now is…unexpected.

Q: Do you have a fitness goal for 2020?

A: I would like to be better at being upside down – handstand holds, handstand push ups, handstands, and dare I dream, handstand walks. But it still feels highly unnatural.

Q: What’s one thing you can share about yourself that would surprise your gym friends?

A: I used to be smart – I have a doctorate in political science and a law degree.
