“Our second chakra is the playground of the inner child and one of the most wonderful ways to healthy this center immediately is to play. Playing is a lost art in many adults, mostly because we have been indoctrinated to believe it is a waste of time. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, genuine play is one of the best possible uses of our time, restoring our physical and sensory being and revitalizing our spirits as well. Einstein himself said one of the most valuable things we can do is play.”
I have been getting many questions lately about optimization of programming and just some other random shit. I wanted to take a second and touch on a subject that is very important to me… FUN!
I want all of you to think to yourself or say it out loud “Is my training Fun?” If the answer is no then you need to figure out what you can do to make it fun. Lets be honest if you don’t enjoy something you aren’t going to continue doing it for an extended period of time. We need exercise to be fun so we stick with it for the rest of our lives.
I often wonder to myself how long i am going to last in Crossfit. It is very stressful on our body and at some point do we start to breakdown or can we continue to improve out performance? Is the increased performance over a long period of time really beneficial for our mental attitude towards fitness?
At some point i want kids, and lots of them! I know for a fact that fitness will not be my focus at that point in my life. Will i continue to train? Of course but it will be less performance driven and more of an enjoyable hobby. I actually look forward to this especially after yesterdays wallballs…
I urge you to take a step back and reflect on why you do this stuff. Is it still fun or are you punishing yourself everyday? Are you so focused on performance that you miss what this is all about? Try to smile next time you train and think about how much you enjoy the process of working out not the end result.
