Starting a Fitness Routine

BEGINNING IS THE HARDEST PART

Beginning is often the hardest part of doing anything.  Taking the first step toward a new fitness program or a new health regime has its challenges, but being able to live a more healthy life within a community of people doing the same, creates accountability and encouragement that you might not have otherwise.

 

ONE STEP AT A TIME

Stepping out into a world of unknowns, a flurry of questions and fears has risks, but if we take that step, it can mean transforming our lives in amazing ways.  I relate staring something new to doing burpees—no one wants to do burpees!  But as you’ll often hear me say, “one at a time” or “down and up” it breaks it down to one rep at a time.  If we are able to think of doing something new as “one rep at a time” it can seem more manageable.  Some days we need to be reminded that “one rep at a time” is exactly how we get through each workout and end up on the finish line.

 

KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!

Creating this gym, was a risk and a challenge, but has been an amazing experience of creating new friendships and community that we cannot imagine life without.  We love seeing the ways you all grow and improve, and are so encouraged by the way you constantly challenge yourselves and the Axis community.  Axis CrossFit may be small, but what we lack in size we overflow in encouragement, hard work, and camaraderie.  We are honored and proud to be your coaches. 

 

FITNESS FOR ALL OF LIFE'S GOALS

Whether you are training to lose more weight than a friend and win $1000 (Ameer), training and eating for your summer beach bod (Matt), training to get stronger (Tyler), training for your Stage Coach abs (Carl & Gerald), or coming back from a broken leg (Mom), training for your next race (Jeff & Josiah) or just staying fit for life (Jamie) we are here for you to guide you in those healthy lifestyle pursuits. 

 

WE ARE HERE TO HELP

Starting something new can be scary and challenging, but we are here to assist you in your CrossFit strength training and nutrition counseling.  We get to try, fail, and succeed in an encouraging community of people who are doing the same thing right along side us.
