the following was taken from Stud Brendan of the original fire breathers and one hell of a coach.

"Even with skilled Coaches and an amazing training program to follow each day it takes a great deal of personal responsibility and drive to achieve "Elite Fitness".

Here are some questions to ask yourself in determining how much effort you "truly" put into your health and fitness.

- Do I set goals for myself and write them down?

- Do I record my workouts in a training log after each session?

- Do I look into the training log before each workout so I know what I did last time and what I need to beat?

- Do I map out a game plan for my goals.

- Do I show up early before each class to practice the things that I suck at?

- Do I stay a little later after each class to work on other things I suck at?

- Do I roll out the trigger points in my muscles on a daily basis?

- Do I ice my body after workouts (especially when it hurts)

- Do I read the crossfit journal and other sources that educate on our brand of fitness?

- Do I listen to and apply the with thought the the coaching cues my trainers drill into my head?

- Do I drink tons of water all through the day?

- Do I only eat natural, un-processed, un-refined foods. ( Meats, Veggies, Fruits, Nuts, and Seeds)

- Do I eat within 1 hour of waking up everyday

- Do I eat no later than an hour after each one of my training sessions and make sure its got a good amount of carbs in it.

- Do I try my very best every time I train?

How many of these questions can you truly answer yes to? I mean truly as in you follow out these principles in your life everyday. These aren't the only questions that need to be asked but the answers will speak a huge testament to why are why not you are getting as fit as you dream to become. The fittest people in our program are this way because they spend their days pursuing excellence."

No one was ever lost on a straight road. Proverb, Indian

Being elite is a choice, as is being lazy.....I choose to be elite in all that I do.

You bring up great questions. To answer ALL of these honestly and to say yes means you are at the top your game! I am still striving for that and working on a few of these ;) This made me stop and think and hold myself accountable. Thanks for posting.
