Goal hard or Go Home
We’ve got a ton of whiteboards at SBK but the Goals and Accomplishments boards are perhaps the most important. Training with a goal in mind and and having a solid plan to achieve it is the best most effective way to see results in the gym. And a goal that isn’t written down is little more than a wish. Starting today and moving forward we’d love to see this board filled with specific, timely, realistic goals that we can help you achieve. Need help in getting started check out Coach Fox’s award-winning article “Goal Setting” under the CFSBK Articles and Media section.
When you achieve something in the gym, no matter how big or seemingly small, put it under the accomplishments board! We love nothing more than when you get a double under a muscle-up or your first push-up or pull-up. Don’t keep it a secret share it with your friends and training partners. Let the rewards of your perspiration be serve as their inspiration (I typed that in a Jesse Jackson voice!).
Let’s get those boards filled up over the course of August!
