“Success Doesn’t Come From What You Do Occasionally But What You Do Consistently”
At H1 CrossFit we have a PB Board for monthly personal best/growth achievements. In the top corner we have got a space called #HWPOH1CF: “Hard Work Pays Off H1 CrossFit”. It’s updated each month with the previous months top attendance. This is because we think that consistency should be celebrated just as much as PBs.
Why is consistency important and what does that mean?
One of CrossFit’s principles is the mechanics-consistency-intensity charter. Read more
MECHANICS: Learn how to perform movements correctly.
CONSISTENCY: Be consistent in using good mechanics and be consistent in showing up
INTENSITY: Once you have mastered Mechanics and Consistency, then add speed, load and distance.
You may have the best exercise program available and you may give it 100% when you do it, however if you’re only doing it once a month it wont have much effect on your overall health and fitness. For lasting change to occur it needs to become a habit, done regularly and consistently.
Change is tough. When you start CrossFit you might commit to three times a week… Fighting the voice inside your head that is saying “it’s raining” or “I don’t like this workout”. Don’t listen to those excuses, get into a routine to better yourself and the three days will become easier, and then turn into four days and then five days. The more consistent you are, the better your results will be.
You are your number one priority. If you take care of yourself, you will be able to look after your family better, you will be better at your job and have a much happier life.
For us, CrossFit is about creating a habit and making exercise a normal part of your life.
Everyone has their own goals, you might do it to be able to compete. You might do it to challenge yourself, to be stronger and better than you were last week. You might do it to try out do your workout buddy. Whatever your goal is, consistency will get you there… commit to turning up… keep turning up and you will be amazed by what you are capable of.
