Challenge Time is a Coming…
We have started to release the details of our upcoming “Progression NOT Perfection” Nutrition/Workout Challenge, HERE. Today, I would like to cover the reasons why you are HIGHLY encouraged to participate in this kind of challenge.
One to two times a year we like to hold a nutrition type challenge to provide you with a chance to really learn about yourself, food and the relationship of the two. This type of challenge is also an opportunity to learn, meet and grow with the community of CPMFITness. As well as an excellent opportunity to push yourself too a level you may have not had a chance to in a really long time. I would like to offer up some more advice on what you should expect and what my expectations are for each of you.
It is about Improving YOU.
As of today you have been operating at a certain level which has lead you to exactly your current state. This level provides you with your current fitness, mindset, expectation of yourself and what you will tolerate in your life.
Are YOU Satisfied??
Are truly happy with you waistline? Are you cool with your current level of FITness?? Are you happy with YOU???
If you are not (and I know you aren’t ((satisfied that is)) because we all want to be better)? Then I ENCOURAGE you to challenge yourself.
When you participate in a challenge like this, you get a chance to bring out the best in YOU. We always adapt to our surrounding; thinking back to my high school basketball days and when we played a more talented team our coach would always say, “You must raise your game to play to their level of competition.” By participating in this challenge it will put you in the game with the top 50 plus competitors in our gym. If you are surrounding yourself with the top 50 most focused committed members in our gym what do you think will happen???
The #CPMFamily is the group of fellow members you will be participating with throughout the challenge. You will learn about their goals, successes, setbacks, their great advice and ideas. They will in-turn learn a lot about you. The magic of the family is each one of you will bring something great about you to the table.
It is easy to think that you are competing against everyone else in the challenge but that type of thinking is for the small minded. I would urge you to do everything you can to help everyone else with their goals and bring as much as you can to improve the challenge. Ever heard of the old saying, “The more you share, the more you get”. It is true. When you adopt this way of thinking you are coming from a place of abundance. And only good things will begin to happen to you.
We all have the answer to our problems. We just allow our problems to stop us. When your problems have you convinced to give up or quit its time to shift your focus to someone else that needs your help. When you begin to help others instead of focusing on your problems we will uncover our true answers inside of us by getting out of our own head (literally) and helping others in need. It is a very powerful and empowering process. You can’t get this kind of learning on your own.
My Expectation for YOU.
This challenge will provide you a platform to excel during the 5 week period. If I were to tell you to eat as close to ‘Paleo’ as you can, I would be cheating you as a coach. The idea of a challenge is to CHALLENGE yourself. This is a temporary time period to give you a chance at long term success habits. It is a rare experience to have a large group of people totally focused, totally committed and totally enthusiastic about a common goal. Use this time to up your knowledge, push yourself to another level, help others achieve their goals and focus in on something that will improve all areas of your life! Take advantage of everything this great challenge has to offer between the meetings, the #CPMFamily, the coaches, the accountability, everything is set up for you to thrive. Those of you that are first timers to this type of challenge have so much to gain by absorbing everything and following the plan. For you repeat challengers this is your chance to build on everything you have learned in the past and really step up your game!
