When I go to MMA I always feel equal to everyone. Joao is a very approachable person and nobody us afraid to speak to him. Ever since I’ve started MMA I have felt healthier and more alert. The good thing about MMA is we are thought not to abuse our skills but to use them either in a fight or for self defense. This teaches us discipline.
When I approach that barbell, I stand with my feet close to it and stare at it. While I am staring at it, I’ll be thinking about the whole movement of my body, from the moment I grab on that barbell till the moment I snatch it and stand straight up. I think about all the techniques that my coach has taught me, and the building up steps of that snatch.
When I walk in, it’s work time. It’s not work as in a job. It’s work as in you want nothing more than get it done because of the reward on the other side. Worthwhile work with great people all around you to help push you when you need to be pushed, picked up when you need to be picked up, and left alone when it’s just time to work. I love my work here and I’m not alone. I know my job will never be done.
My personal training has made me feel valued. Being valued gives you the drive to pursue your goals, which in turn leads to success! FitRepublik is doing this for me.
I draw my power from that little spark deep inside my roots and soul..at each race before the gun goes off I discipline my mind to see this race as an amazing moment in my life; I see the present moment as a great and unique opportunity(all I’ve ever have) to turn that little spark within me into a Radiance. So I direct all my focus on that.
CrossFit is about surrounding yourself with like-minded people and a sense of community. You’re never in the workout alone – your friends are sweating beside you for that hour of pain and the coaches are always filled with inspirational motivation. I’m excited, scared and anxious for every workout as I walk in the gym to look at the white board for the day’s torture!
