Getting the most out of your CrossFit membership.

I think one of the biggest pet peeves a coach can have is the “athlete” who doesn’t listen, argues, acts like the coach, disrupts class, and makes a general ass of themselves. This is sad, because not only does it make for a bad training environment; it might actually hurt other’s progress as well.

During the talk I explained the need to set additional future goals and that without them within two months of her finishing the 5k, she would be back to where she is now. “Only one goal at a time” I was told. “I know what works for me”. I tried to explain that she should at least be looking for a future goal, and I was shut down. Since my argument was going nowhere, I tried another tactic. An explanation of my Fitness Personality Profile and where she fit into it soon followed.
