There's always something to be learned when stepping out of your comfort zone and pushing through new boundaries.

πŸ€”πŸ€” hmm somehow this happened here I am looking at the barbell gasping for air during the masters qualifiers.

My training these days has dropped rapidly to less than 15% of what I used to do when I was training as an athlete. Some might say I now train like normal folk (well those outside of the CrossFitter community anyway)..... I currently train 4-5 times a week (sometimes less). My training program is designed around an hour session...but when I'm in training at @rangeofmotion I often end up spending more time talking than I do training 🀣

Training these days is mostly for me, both physically, and mentally; it helps me to... well, feel like me. .
If I am to be completely honest, I'm not sure how far I will get with the masters qualifiers. Most likely it'll be a case of "ah well, let's see how we go". Either way, if you had asked me a year ago if I felt I would have been able to get back to where I am now; or even do half of what I can do now, I would have said "absolutely not!". While I ceased training for competitive CrossFit in 2015, however, through over-training and large amounts of stress on my body it has taken me the bulk of the time between now and then to recover. .
Anyone who has suffered from adrenal fatigue understands it is a significant challenge to over come. I have promised a few people I will write more in a blog post on this later, as I feel it is incredibly important for others to understand the potential risks and consequences associated with over-training. .

Some days feel better than others, I sometimes feel as though I am almost recovered, but I still have a long slow road back to 100% recovery.
Nowadays, I am simply thankful to be moving.
Thankful for CrossFit, which again, has helped me to return back to who I am, through health and fitness.
Most of all, I'm thankful for each day I now get to spend in the gym and for every moment when I hit the gym floor & get a sweat on! #gettingsweaty #gettingsweatywithfriends #gaspingforairtime #barbellstaredown #crossfitgames #crossfitmasters #rangeofmotion

Getting the other half back into some fitness after a long stint of demanding fly in fly out work schedule.
Creating new habits and setting goals, some of the things we covered off before setting foot into the gym with a simple 7 step process to build self-decipline power and motivation into life.
1. Defining Purpose - " I know what I want to achieve"
2. Models of Possibilities - " If they can do it it's possible for me too"
3. Sensory Vision - " I see and feel myself doing it, now I know I can do it!"
4. Leads to ➑️ desire, obsession, passion and creating THE FIRE WITHIN!
5. Planning - " I know what I have to do to achieve it"
6. Learning - " I learn the skills and knowledge to achieve it?"
7. Persistence - "No matter how long it takes or how hard it is I can do it"

I'm now taking one on one clients let me assist you with setting new goals and achieving them! Click on the link above to make a start today! #handyassistant #sweataday #didntdie

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy" - Martin Luther King Jr.
Currently doing some research for a blog post I'm writing on the effects of over training & adrenal fatigue.
This quote by Martin Luther King Jr. appears in the acknowledgment section of one of the papers I'm researching 'Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome: A Project Report' which really struck a chord and I felt I'd like to share it with you.
Perhaps slightly philosophical for a Monday motivation, however, where this resonates with me is thinking about moments in your life where you are proud of how you have conducted yourself or what you were capable of in a challenging situation.

We all face these daily; be it in the gym, out of the gym, at home, at work or at life in general.
Stay tuned for my upcoming blog post where I intend to open up about my own experience with Adrenal Fatigue and how I came to terms with the affects, the implications and ultimately the process to manage and overcome it.
