It’s that time of the year again! #openseason
With all the buzz around the gym about the CrossFit Open, we wanted to get everybody on the same page and explain what it is all about, why everyone should sign up + how we are going to prepare you for what's coming!!
Although the CrossFit Open has traditionally been referred to as the first step towards qualifying for the CrossFit games, it has grown and developed into so much more. The Open is not only a stepping stone for those looking to compete on the worldwide stage, it has morphed into a worldwide event aimed at making everyone fitter, strengthening communities and having fun!
Eddie brings a presence to the gym that can't be missed. He shows up, puts in the work and doesn't complain, all while being an inspiration to others. When Eddie misses a class, the first question everyone asks is "Where's Eddie?"
Eddie started out in CrossFit, but quickly found his love for lifting weights and transitioned seamlessly into Hank's Powerhouse. Eddie quickly settled in and became a positive role model for all the lifters and members of CF6S and Hank's Powerhouse. Last year, he competed in 3 powerlifting competitions! His first one was full of PRs and success. An aggressive weight cut for his second meet had him tired and not his usual self, and unfortunately, he ended up missing all his squats. Typically, this would rattle any competitive powerlifter, but Eddie held his head high, learnt from this experience and came back to training with even more motivation and determination. He went into his third meet seeking redemption and this is exactly what he got! He hit competition PRs in all his lifts and made 8/9 lifts - talk about a comeback!
In training, Eddie is always supportive of his fellow members and pushes them to succeed. As Eddie slings big weights in the gym, the bar is always bending. This may seem intimidating to others, but don't be fooled, Eddie is as kind as he is strong.
We are so lucky to have Eddie at CF6S and we're all looking forward to many more memories, PRs and competitions together!
If you are the person who treats the new year like a blank slate, and fills the empty page with goals you never end up achieving, this post is for you! Did you know that only 10% of people actually stick with their new year’s resolutions? This is because most of us set resolutions that are unrealistic, and we do not actually spend the proper amount of time planning out how we are going to achieve to them. If you want to set out the new year on the right foot, it takes a bit of work, but preparation is the key to success.
To help you succeed in your health & fitness goals, we've compiled some tips for setting (and achieving) "new year" resolutions. We hope you enjoy!
