Since CFLA has been recently been promoting the 2016 Crossfit Games Open, and the Friday Night events for the workouts, there has been a lot of excitement and chatter around the gym. I have heard some members talk about how they feel intimidated about the workouts to come, and if they should even sign up to participate.
The answer to that question is a huge YES!!! Everyone should participate in the open workouts. They are fun, challenging, humbling, and we are going to have a great time within the community walls cheering on each other.
This intimidation provides yet another opportunity, to identify that fear, and have the option to CRUSH it. I’m sure all of you have experienced situations where you were scared, anxious, uncertain about the outcome of specific events, but you rose to the occasion and didn’t back down. The feeling of accomplishment that you gain for overcoming challenges is quite extraordinary.
Our brains are wired to protect oneself, to put up barriers, to become anxious and fearful, it’s a defense mechanism. Well guess what, we have the ability to rewire our brains! Our thought patterns can shift, if we just tune into controlling our emotions and behavior, we can achieve so much.
I encourage the CFLA community to join together, rise up, and let’s conquer the 2016 open! Register here https://games.crossfit.com
