*Why are some people rich and lots of people poor?

Do you ever get stuck in a place that you just can’t seem to get out of?

You wake up just not feeling yourself, you use your “go to” happy tricks and they are just not getting you out of your funk …

Its ok to not always be OK.

You go on Facebook it is a “false reality” people only put what they want you to see not the whole truth. Which can lead us to feel even worse. ( I challenge you to limit your Facebook time and keep it very focused).

Setting Yourself Up For a PR

Setting Yourself Up For a PR

How To Get That PR In Class

We had a 1 RM deadlift last week and it seemed as though everyone was getting a PR (personal record). While it was a ton of fun (seriously, it was too much fun!), but PR’s aren’t as easy to hit as it may seem. Once you have been doing this for a while, months may go by where you don’t get one. That’s ok and it’s normal. If I were to get a PR every week, I’d be squat cleaning 205 pounds by now… at least! But I’m not 🙁

So if you see a […] Read more

Make Your Gym Experience Exciting!

Make Your Gym Experience Exciting!

Set Some Goals… Please!

I have been working out at CPM for several years now and my focus has switched from one thing to another…

Double unders – this one almost killed me
Linear Progression
1 RM Power Clean
Bar Muscle-ups
1 RM Squat Clean
Ring Muscle-ups
Handstand Walks

But the entire time I’ve been at CPM, I’ve always had a goal. And it’s not to lose 10 pounds. Don’t get me wrong, losing 10 pounds might help me achieve my goal but it’s not the end result I’m looking for. So why do I set performance goals? Because it’s fun….WAY MORE fun than stepping on the scale every […] Read more
