Those Boys from Across the Pond Got a lot Right.

When you choose what workout you do there are two things to remember.  All you need is love (for the workout) and with a little help from your friends you can achieve your goals.  I know many people who do workouts that are not crossfit who acheive their goals and they always have those two things going for them.

First of all, you have to enjoy what you're doing.  How many people can do an activity every day and hate doing it?  Sure they can keep up the act for a week, or maybe even a few weeks if they are stubborn.  Whether it is P90X, Yoga, Running, Swimming or just jumping up and down in place  if you enjoy doing it then you're more likely to do it every day.  If you hate everything athletic then well maybe you need to change your attitude!
Do what makes you happy

Another tip to keep working out is to surround yourself with people who are also very active.  I'm not trying to tell you to cut your lazy friends loose, but maybe  make some active friends to supplement your lazy friends.  I am very fortunate to have a wife who is very dedicated to being healthy, and along with her support I also have a group of friends who can not sit still and have to constantly do something.  I've hiked, fribee'd, starting biking, running a bit, traveling...and a number of other activities that I can not think of right now due only because of my friends.  So since many read this, THANK YOU!


I took my third day in a row off of Crossfit...eeek.  but I had a good reason today, I did a 20 mile bike ride after work..and it was a hilly ride!  I have a triathlon this Sunday so there will be some rides to loosen me up this week.
