Everyone walks into a CrossFit gym for a different reason. Some people are searching for a program that will enhance their life, some are looking for a competitive edge in their respective sport and some just plain and simple want to look a little better naked.

Often people walk in to the gym searching for something in particular and then after a certain number months, they find a shift in not only their goals, but also their priorities.

It’s very rewarding to get to watch as people transform into something they thought was never possible. With these changes it’s important to keep track of your initial goals while you start pursuing your new goals. If your very first goal in the gym was to look a little better in a bathing suit, then down the road you may have trouble rationalizing wanting to perform better if you still don’t like the way you look in a bathing suit. Remember that it’s completely fine to change your goals, however our true priorities will always reign through. 

It’s important to understand why we do the things we do. If your goal is too look better in a bathing suit, that’s awesome. If your goal is to go regionals, that’s great. If your goal is to pick up your child off the ground without pain, fantastic. However, when it comes down to setting your goal, the only thing that matters is that you are happy with it. The only person you ever have to justify anything to is yourself.

Typically, no matter how bad we would like to change what we are looking for, our initial goals will always come up as we prioritize. There is no right goal and there is no wrong goal. Every one is different and everyone is looking for something different. Keep that in mind as you grow into the athlete you become.
