Because if we want to have strong, resilient, versatile bodies--bodies that can still do pull-ups at 70 years old, that can pick up and throw our kids in the air without pain well into our 40's and 50's, that can run a sub-7 mile for years on end, that can compete with the best of other CrossFit athletes...
then we have to start with self-awareness and knowing where our current capacities are at...so we can make them better!
Exercise and I have had a fickle relationship...
You see, my mom would tell you that I learned to walk with a soccer ball on my foot. I’m the youngest of four soccer players. When it came to soccer in our family, my dad was our coach, my older siblings were assistant coaches, and my mom was the manager. When I was five, I got to watch my oldest sister, along with the rest of the Rochester Adams High School soccer team, win the state championship.
Feel like there's never enough time in the day to get things done? You're not alone.
It seems like that clock is always running out of time. Most days seem to leave us with just enough time to brush our teeth, go to work, eat, tuck the kids in to bed, maybe watch some Marvel show on Netflix and then go back to sleep again...am I right? Fitting exercise into that day...what, are you crazy? There's no way I can find the time for that... Only insane people do that, right?
But maybe it's more than that.
