CrossFit Daytona is located next to a busy road. Literally, hundreds of people pass by our doors every day. I speak to many of these people, and they always have an excuse as to why they cannot workout out a few hours a week. We provide a solution to their problem, but these people would rather go eat ice cream. A few months go by and the same people continue to pass on by; but, at that point, they are only more overweight and out of shape.
What is holding you back from achieving your goals? What’s stopping you? Of course, it’s easier to sit on the couch instead of going to the gym. Who wouldn’t rather eat a slice of pizza over a salad? But, if we truly want to change ourselves and achieve great things, then we must change our mindset, stop making excuses, and take ownership of our situation.
Navy Seals have a quote, “Do today what others won’t, so tomorrow you can do what others can’t.” Simple, yet powerful. I’m in the constant practice of doing the things that I do not want to do. Is it hard? Of course. Does it suck? Most of the time, yes. I’m not perfect, and by no means am I at the same caliber of a Navy Seal. But, I try to delay instant gratification every day and do the things that others won’t do. The problem is, most people just talk about their goals instead of taking the necessary steps to achieve the goals they desire to accomplish.
At CrossFit Daytona, our athletes aren’t talking. They are doing the things that others will not do. The show up and train hard. They wake up early to come to CrossFit class. They drink water instead of soda. They cut sugar and watch the sweets. They plan their meals ahead of time. These are the things that separate them from the talkers. This is what allows them to do the things they love to do. It prevents unwanted medical bills and trips to the doctor. It helps them avoid chronic illnesses and diseases. It allows them to out-run and out-play their kids. It allows them to have a great quality of life, both mentally and physically.
We’re on a mission to help people achieve a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. We want people to do what they love and be free from sickness and pain well into their eighties. For some, it may be surfing or playing with their kids. For others, it’s being able to walk up a flight of stairs without getting out of breath. We provide coaching, programming, and the facility. But, at the end of the day, it’s up to YOU to do the things that others won’t.
