Now that we have reached the conclusion of this guide, It is only right that we talk about setting and reaching your goals. We all want that dream body right? So the first things we must do is set CrossFit goals.
So where do we begin? Or is the question: How do we begin?
Make the Choice to Start Exercising and Eating Right
Making the decision to do something provides a form of commitment you made to your self. Deciding that you need to change behavior creates new possibilities. When you say to your self “I need to get in shape”, it means something. You should be answering these questions in your mind: When can I work out? What exercises should I do today?
What foods should I be eating? Make your self think about the commitment you just made. Only then you can let go of the past and take steps to move forward.
Write Down the CrossFit Workouts You Do And Track Progress
You need a reference that is realistic towards your weekly activity. Write down everything you do in your workouts and keep it in a training diary or something similar. This should include exercises, time, and anything else you would like to add such as how you felt, rate the workout on a scale of 1/10 etc. Soon, you’ll have a visual perspective on what you've done already and what you need to do to get you closer to your dream body.
Create a Simple Plan and Set Realistic Goals
Keep it Simple! Following a simple plan while on a hectic schedule is much easier than following an elaborate plan. You should have a plan of which days you want to work out and one goal to change your eating habits for the next few weeks. For example, “I will try 3 different CrossFit workouts this week. I will eat a little less each meal.” Simple is success.
Execute Your Plan
Now that you have a plan, all you need to do is follow it. This is another big step. You should look at your plan every day upon waking. You need be mentally prepared for the great day ahead of you. Having your daily schedule in hand will help you achieve your goals for the day. When you complete your workout for the day, highlight it or cross it off your list. It will show you that you accomplished something for yourself. No matter what you must execute. This will be the hardest (and most rewarding) step.
I hope these things along with all the information you have just learnt in this beginners guide to CrossFit will help you get started on a new life of physical fitness.
