The Perfect Coach’s Athlete, Part IV
The coaches at CrossFit Oxnard have spent tens of thousands of dollars and hours on their training to be the best trainers, coaches, and mentors they can be. We all have our different styles and personalities, and that diversity truly is what makes the staff so powerful. We also realize the responsibility we have to you, and that this relationship goes both ways.
All this week, I am breaking down the perfect athlete from a coach’s perspective…CCPP.
All too often I hear people blame 938378572 other things for their lack of abilities, be it their lack of pull ups, strength gains, or overall capacity. This is unfortunately way more the norm then I’d like to see. You need to take ownership of your own workouts (and life!). The coaches are there to guide you on the right path, but YOU are doing the heavy lifting (see what I did there?). We see most of for about 5 hours a week, what you do the other 163 hours is on you.
We all have days where we just don’t feel like moving, and that warm up bear crawl feels DEMONIC. We are not looking for the athlete that needs to be pushed to just show up (although we provide that service too), but more the athlete that we need to reign in, always wanting to do a little more.
Your rest day should be the hardest mental day of your week.
