Edge of the Cliff
Gerry is new to both CrossFit and to Petranek Fitness. One of the things we stress to new students is to go hard, but not so hard that you launch yourself right over the edge of the cliff. Malingering knows what it feels like to launch off the cliff on your first visit – in fact, she wrote about it here. Our goal, whether you’re a beginner or an experienced “fire breather”, is to help you learn to find the edge of the cliff, your edge, without going over the edge. Training at this edge on a regular basis will elicit adaptations by your body that are unachievable any other way. So, if you’re a beginner, don’t judge or compare yourself to anyone else other than you… and if you’re at your edge, you’re right where you’re supposed to be! Welcome aboard, Gerry!
