Make the Most of the Time You Have in the Gym

We are all busy people; we have families, jobs and obligations that pull us in all sorts of directions. This why many of us found CrossFit appealing in the first place, the class is a preplanned hour long of warm up, skill work and workout, no guess work– just show up and move. But are you getting the most out of the WOD? Sure, there will be days where no matter what you do, you feel like you are stuck in second gear. But how often do you lay it all out on the table during the WOD when you are well fed and rested?

I really enjoyed this CrossFit Journal article about Games athlete Val Voboril (“The Need For Speed”). She is a full time school teacher and mother to a little girl. She gets one hour a day to train and she makes it count. She hits that workout hard because she knows she doesn’t have the luxury of open gym.

There is often an assumption that Games athletes train hours on end, day after day and that this high volume method of training is the only way to improve. Athletes like Val Voboril not only demonstrate that not all elite level athletes train this way, she also shows that a person doesn’t need to turn their training into a part time job to make improvements.

Show up, go hard, do it again tomorrow.
