Moving Forward

15 Jun

An exciting weekend is ahead for my husband and I!

This weekend we are headed to CrossFit Bellevueto attend our CrossFit Level 1certification. It is going to be two days of fitness and health, and the first step towards one day opening our own gym!

It is always exciting when you take steps towards your dreams and future. Another way we are moving forward is by shadowing (and soon to be assistant coaching) at our local gym Kitsap CrossFit. They have been so helpful and supportive, and there is so much we can learn from the coaches and owners!

So as we move forward here are some thoughts on what we need to accomplish our goal of opening a gym:

1. A goal: Clarifying and writing down our goals is important and gives us direction.
2. A plan: We have to identify the knowledge we need and steps to take to get there. For us this would be CrossFit certifications and capital to open. We also need people resources and the knowledge they have.
3. Mentors and Examples: We have a good relationship with the owners of our current gym and can draw from their experience and use them as sounding boards. We also can visit other gyms and see how they are set up and run to have models to mirror.
4. Accountability: Marriage affords a great accountability partner as do other close relationships. Mentors also offer great accountability as their purpose is to challenge and encourage you.

It is exciting to move towards the future! Hopefully you have an exciting future you are working towards as well!

What does your future hold?
