It’s time to RECHARGE! Starts next Friday, the 9th September! Sign up now at the front desk!

What is Recharge?

Recharge is a 6 week lifestyle challenge where we dial in on our daily habits including nutrition, training and recovery. Each day is scored and at the end of the challenge we award our best challengers. The objective of the ReCharge is to get you feeling great! This challenge is aimed to create self-awareness and positive changes to your current lifestyle and habits. It will enable you to progress further towards reaching your goals and to stay focused. Prepare for beach season and to kick even more ass than normal at Charge! When you have your exercise, nutrition, sleep (etc) in alignment special things happen! Abs can appear….. Ring Muscle ups can appear…. Double Body Weight Squats become last years fashion and Burpees become…Fun! Well, we can’t promise everything but what we can promise is that you will be better prepared for Summer and feeling better than ever!

To kick off the event we will be holding a Recharge info and pizza night next Friday night at 7pm. We will indulge in pizzas, set some goals with Ash and learn all the ‘why’s’ from Dr Nick G.

Do you cherry pick WODs?

Have you ever improved at something you suck at without practicing it? Highly unlikely.

Everyone has weaknesses. Improving your weaknesses also improves your strengths. If you frequently look up the daily WOD and decide not to come on a particular day because it doesn’t suit your strengths I strongly suggest you stop looking at the News/Workout of the day blog until after you have completed the session. Take away the temptation and turn up ready to for the unknown!

We need to accept our challenges and conquer them! That is how fitness will occur and goals will be reached. This applies to everything in life. Get out there and tackle your weaknesses head on.

Todays WOD is a repeat from the 2014 CrossFit Open. (Stop reading now if you suffer from Cherrypick-itis) 🙂
