To try and build something great, you have to have a vision, but far more importantly, you have to have GREAT people on your team who can make that vision a reality. We’re gonna be losing Coach Crystal (the quieter one. haha) for the next 8ish weeks, and while it makes me sad, I couldn’t be happier for her. As a gym and as a community, we believe that it’s our absolute duty to help people achieve their goals and their dreams. That doesn’t just apply to the members.
I’m sorry. At fitness Cape Coral, we’ve been lucky enough to get the chance to help a LOT of people and we feel that our passionate coaches and our programs have helped to improve the quality of life for many people. But this letter is specifically to any one of you who DIDN’T have a great experience.
At the beginning of every one of your training sessions, your Coach should be talking to you about the intended stimulus of that day’s training. At fitness Cape Coral, we usually do this after the general warm-up, when we gather around the digital whiteboard for a chat. This is where we always remind everyone, that the goal is NOT always to go all out.
It’s so easy to get wrapped up in the constant push by society to lose weight. Some fad diets will tell you to cut out a macro in it’s entirety! The most fundamental way to lose weight is a calorie deficit, however, restricting too much can have negative effects on your health.
I’ve always enjoyed fitness. Before fitness, I was a spinning and aerobics instructor, and I did pretty typical gym workouts with a lot of cardio and very little weights. I had tried fitness a few times at a few different boxes and I absolutely hated it.
I found fitness while I was in the Army. I thought I was insanely fit because I ran every day, ruck-marched, and I’d been to Iraq and survived twice already. I’d heard about fitness from some other soldiers, mostly officers, and thought it was SUPER lame, but just like most people that “hate on” things, I had no idea what I was talking about.
