You guys saved!
Is your 2020 fitness goal to compete?
OR Are you looking for something to keep you focused on your goals as you roll into the new year?
On April 18th, 2020 we are hosting Festivus Games!
What is Festivus? It’s a worldwide Functional Fitness competition for beginners and intermediate competitors. Sorry, no “Fire-Breathers” allowed. Want to learn more? Click on the link in our bio and visit our Festivus Page. https://crossfitstcharles.com/festivus-games/
Our final and third guess as to why you might not have met your 2019 gaols
You haven’t put in the work.
This can be the most frustrating camp to fall into when it comes to not achieving your goals.
“Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection, we can catch excellence.” -Vince Lombardi
Whether growing a business or growing your biceps it can be tough when the results haven’t shown up yet. So, what should you do?
KEEP GOING! But not before reassessing.
Ask yourself, are there any additional resources or tools that could be getting you to your goals faster? Because we would bank on the fact that there are. Are there any roadblocks you are creating for yourself but maybe not noticing? We’d bet there are.
Sometimes if your goals are not coming along but you’re putting in all the work, it’s time to reach out for a second opinion.
If you’re here reading this, this chance to reassess and crush roadblocks is right here! We offer one on one training in the form of 1 one-hour sessions and 30-minute sessions. And this is where the best reassessments and the best roadblock smashing occurs.
Also, Take advantage of our those quick chats! Sit down and talk about your road blocks with a coach.
After 10 years at 81 Jason court, we’re moving on to big and better things!
And by bigger, we mean no wall in the middle of our workout space!
This will give us more opportunities and allow us to continue to bring you the best fitness experience out there!
Last week the lease was finalized and the checks were written.
So what’s really keeping you from achieving your goals?
Our second guess is:
You don’t think you deserve it.
This could be thought of as self-sabotage. We’ve all heard, “you are your own worse enemy”.
Many of the long-standing beliefs humans hold are instilled by parents, environments, or sadly… traumatic experiences. The brain long ago accepted as fact that, “this is the way it is”. Or maybe has told you “It HAS to be this way”. If you have a long-held belief that is clashing with one of your current goals, then your first order of business is to remove that roadblock.
No amount of will power or strategy can overcome a fixed mindset. You are an adult and you are responsible for your own life.
You have the power to change any condition that you don’t want!
Believing you can change and take steps toward your goal is hard but the very best first step!!
Sometimes as we’re working on changing longstanding beliefs, it’s hard to keep focused alone. It’s hard to see ourselves as worthy and keep that worthiness within focus. During those times it’s vital to ask for help. Help from a friend, a partner, a coach.
Connect often with people who believe the best IN you, expect the best FROM you, and want the BEST for you!
If you’re reading this blog, people like that are within reach! At CrossFit St. Charles you’ll find coaches and comrades who are here for you. Here to remind you of your goals and how YOU DESERVE to reach them!
If you’re a member already, you know what I’m talking about. If you’re not, we want you to experience it!!

If you currently want something in your life that you don’t have then there is a 100% chance that you’re human.
The action you take towards bringing those desired things into your life, is really what determines whether you get them
This is the time of year in which we love to make declarations about what’s to come next. But we’d be silly to not think about what stopped us from achieving 2019’s goals.
Generally, if you have a goal you haven’t achieved yet you fall into one of these three camps.
The first one is: You don’t know what to do and you don’t know how to do it.
This is generally the first challenge you encounter when you have a new goal. Luckily it is also the easiest barrier to address when it comes to making positive changes in your life!
Whether you seek to earn more money, improve your health, or find your soulmate, there are websites, coaches, books, podcasts, and more resources than you know what to do with.
In the information age we live in, the good news is: You have access to the tools and resources you need to get started on the path to your goal!
Let’s say your goal is to get to a body composition that feels comfortable. A weight and size that allows you to move well and more freely. But you’ve never been there, or at least that you can remember. You’re an expert in being uncomfortable and frustrated… but you’re a novice in weight loss.
The key is to connect with an expert and stay connected!
To find someone who knows how to help you with your fitness and your mismanagement of high-calorie meals.
And the BEST news is if you’re here, reading this blog, you’ve already found us!
Don’t set more goals in 2020 without knowing what to do and how to do it!
If you’re a member, set up a one-on-one session to talk about your goals and make a clear plan!
If you’re not a member book a free intro!
CrossFit Open 2020 is complete.
It was certainly a twist of events to have 2 Opens in one year but I think in 6 months I’ll be missing it!
This was a great Open season. I loved the workouts. I felt they were challenging for our top athletes and also allowed the rest of us to push ourselves to do things unexpected.
For those who’ve been training awhile, the Open is a test. It tests our physical strength and skills, our cardiovascular and mental toughness, and it tests our commitment and consistency. It shows us how far we’ve come and where to go next. It shows us that we don’t have to train pistols regularly in order to do pistols! (but… we’ll probably be doing more pistols)
For those of us who said,
“I can’t do…”
“I’ve never done…”,
“I’m not sure about…”
Did you surprise yourself?
Congratulations to those who signed up on the main site not expecting to be on our Intramural leaderboard but actually found themselves there!
Between GOAT training (my favorite class to coach) and the WODs, there were countless Prs.
I’m really looking forward to The Open 2021. Looking forward to setting new goals, working hard, training and learning.
What are your goals? Lets get them together!
So, you signed up for Festivus! For many people Festivus is their first real fitness competition. This competition is a great way to celebrate your fitness, show off your progress, and have fun with other people in the same boat as you.
If this is your first Festivus, I’m sure you’re wondering how to prepare. We’ve got some tips for you! If this is not your first and you’re wanting to up your game, we’ve also got some tips for you!
This is basically your body’s way of forcing you to slow down (to preserve energy), which can compromise your performance. Hydration should start days before you arrive at our gym! Hydrate early and often!
