TALK to yourself, instead of LISTENING to yourself

“Discouragement can come in many different forms; sometimes it’s the voice inside your head that tells you you’re not good enough, or other times it may come from giving your very best and not succeeding. Fuel your heart with encouragement in these six ways:”

  • how you talk to yourself
  • what you visualize
  • what you watch
  • what you read
  • what you listen to
  • who you surround yourself with

“Then, choose to believe that everything that happens to you is in your best interest, and it will turn all your challenges into opportunities.”

Individual Event 3 CrossFit Games

“MY Number 1 🔑 to success; HAPPINESS! Have FUN. There’s times to be serious & put your game face on 😈 but don’t take every second of training so seriously!! It’s okay to LAUGH and ENJOY THE PROCESS”

“Hey Ben, any suggestions on how I should break this up??” -Me

“You’re not.” – Ben Bergeron


INTENSITY in your workouts starts with GOOD MOBILITY. How?? 👇🏼

🔑 DISTANCE : move more comfortably in space by increasing range of motion

🔑 FORCE : optimize the ability to transfer strength with better levers and positions

🔑 SPEED : Faster execution thanks to the use of energy that is no longer wasted to correct a bad line of action

“We’re all dealt a hand. It’s up to us whether to accept it, or to use it as a starting point. “I’m not a runner,” “I’m not a gymnast,” and “I’m not strong,” are just stories we tell ourselves. The truth is, you’re not a runner… yet. You’re not a gymnast… yet. You’re not strong… yet.”
