Consistency is key to success, and nothing trumps good ole’ fashion hard friggin work!

With information so readily available to us today it is easy to get caught up in educating yourself on all of the facts about everything before you take action. But, if you look at what lies at the core of all successes, it is almost always directly attributable to the hard work someone has put in prior to the success. You can have the smartest business sense or the biggest brain, but without the ability to work hard and apply your talents, you will not go very far.

Nothing generates better returns than hard work and ones’ “stick-to-ativeness”, aka consistency! It’s all about ‘the grind‘! It’s true! You get out what you put in. This is what we see in the gym everyday. SoWal CrossFit is filled with nothing but successful people!

How do I know our gym is filled with successful people? Because everyone of our members shows up, puts in 100% effort, and leaves ready for their day, or an evening with their family. Moms, dads, retirees, professionals, entrepreneurs, business owners, CEO’s, CFO’s, grand-dads/moms, students, children (see Lifting Futures program) and everyone in-between! All of the members at SoWal CF (#swcf) share the bond of hard work, and for that, every one of our members are successful!

So do you need to go to a gym to be successful? Nope! But is sure does help 😉

While our HIIT classes, CrossFit Training, Youth Development and Personal Training are all physically and mentally challenging, the hardest part is showing up! That’s it! All you have to do it reach deep down inside of yourself for the motivation to simply walk through the doors of our fitness facility. After you shake-off the ‘first-timer’ nerves (we all had them), break a sweat alongside our encouraging fitness community and head home or off to work, you too will understand exactly what we mean when we say the HARDEST PART IS SHOWING UP.

Our classes are between 45-50 minutes long. Within this timeframe a Coach guides the class through a warm-up all together to prepare your body for the workout. After the warm-up, the Coach will review the movements you will perform in the workout helping ensure everyone in the class has a safe, fun and challenging workout together! 3, 2, 1, GO! Everyone gets in a workout between 6-20 minutes on average. Shortly after the workout is over, the class high-fives one another, talks about the best and worst parts of the workout, then puts their equipment away. The Coach will then guide the entire class you through a cool down or stretch, together. All of this occurs in 45-50 minutes, and you are sent on your way to attack your day or enjoy your evening at home!

As you can see, the hardest part is showing up!

Interested in learning more? Walk through the doors of our gym just 10-15 minutes prior to any class on our schedule. Our coaches and training staff will take care of everything from there! We hope you find the motivation you need to take control of your health soon! If you do decide to come workout with us you will be even more prepared by completing a waiver prior to your arrival.

Juice cleanses, detox diets, and other forms of quick-fix diets provide a great jump start to trying to get your nutrition in order, but they are sometimes threatening and even dangerous to your health. YOUR proper nutrition often times starts slowly. While you can have a complete plan prepared, very few of us can implement every nutritional change necessary to support a healthier and more active lifestyle. Sometimes you’re not even allowed to workout or increase your heart-rate on a cleanse or detox. FUN!

If you are prepared to take control of your nutrition, also known as your diet (definition of diet: the kinds of food that a person, animal, or community habitually eats.) you should consider developing proper nutritional habits gradually, one food group/type at a time, and creating your new habits one meal at a time.

Our full-time unlimited membership comes with full-time guidance and assistance on how YOU can take control of your nutrition. Don’t forget, working out is fantastic and a must for you to maintain mobility and strength, but unless you are teaming your workout regimen with proper nutrition, you will not recover or improve things such as muscle mass and even bone density!

 

Positive relationship found between physical activity and cognitive function in school age children 4 – 18 years of age. This suggests that physical activity may be related to cognition during the development stages of children. Examinations of findings of Sibley and Etnier (A meta-analysis. Pediatr Exerc Sci. 2003;15:243–256) reveal that perceptual skills, intelligent quotient achievement, verbal tests, mathematics tests, memory, developmental level academic readiness and other key components of a child’s development indicate a beneficial relationship of physical activity on all cognitive categories, with the possible exception of memory. Increased levels of aerobic fitness were associated being beneficial to cognitive processes underlying cognitive control during adolescent development. NWFL Fitness’ Lifting Futures programs continues to promote findings as our base to promote the positive relationship between your child’s physical activity levels and their individual levels of cognitive thinking.

Does your child’s daily schedule encourage or allow them to perform physical activities? Or is your kid stuck in a desk all day, only able to move from one class to another?
Not only is exercise an incredible tool to fight childhood obesity and poor health, but it also helps our children focus, and it helps them learn and achieve by boosting cognitive performance.
Most children that aren’t involved with school, local or private sports teams are being prevented the opportunity to be active. This not only undermines their health, but it also makes it more difficult for the child to focus in school, keep their weight at a healthy level, and mature cognitive skills during the key stages of their development.
Lifting Futures is NWFL Fitness’ youth development program designed to fight this growing issue among our adolescents. It is our goal to provide safe, fun and active learning environments that allow your child and teen to regularly move! Not just uncontrolled recess, or playing outside, but teaching them beginner Olympic lifts, functional movements and other technical skills that may not only assist the development of their cognitive skills, but also challenge their coordination and give them a sports-like environment that they want to be a part of.
