Manage that Stress

Hi Athletes! 

💪

 We are now in Week 3 of the QuaranTEAM and you may be feeling some anxiety or uncertainty about the future. I’ve attached a short video of 5 things you can do to help with those anxious feelings.

The good news is that you can work on 3 of the 5 just by staying connected to the gym and your CFM Family!

❤

1) Routine. When schools closed for our kids, we gave them one day to mourn and then we got started on a routine. We start each day by waking up and getting a workout in together. This amps up those Happy Hormones for the rest of the day. I won’t bore you with the details of our entire routine but I can say that having a schedule and being consistent has made a big difference for our family!

😃

Have you set a specific time aside each day to get your daily workout in?

If not, send us a PM and we’ll be happy to help you get on track and stay accountable.

2) Stay Socially Connected. Although we want to stay physically distant during this time, we don’t want to stay socially distant.

I know the idea of attending a Zoom class may seem awkward at first but there’s a big benefit to hopping on a Zoom and seeing and sweating with your fellow athletes. I challenge you to try a Zoom class if you haven’t tried one already.  We currently offer Zoom classes M-F at 9:15am and T/TH at 6pm. Also watch for Zoom Happy Hours, where we’ll just get on-line and have some laughs 🤭.

New to CrossFit Maricopa?? We have a Virtual Boot Camp starting on April 9th. CLICK HERE to learn more.

💦

3) Set Goals. Let’s face it, we have a lot more time on our hands right now. Why not use this as an OPPORTUNITY to establish a new goal.

My 13 year old was struggling because so many things she was looking forward to have been cancelled. She was supposed to be in a play and to sing at Disney. Those are things we can’t control so instead we brainstormed about things that she could do with the down time. She picked learning to play guitar! So we’re buying a starter guitar and getting some online lessons.

🎸

Think of something you’ve always wanted to do but didn’t have time for.  If you’ve got gym goals, we’re here to help!  The great thing about CrossFit is there always is a skill that you can improve on. Just PM us with your goal and we’ll set you up on a plan to succeed!

Member Spotlight: Christina

Tell us a little bit about your background and what brought you to CFM, when did you start?

I was raised here in Maricopa and I will be 44yrs old on the 20th of this month, what brought me to CFM or should I say who brought me and that would be my sister in law Lindsey and my brother Jeremy Garcia. I was going through a bad time and Lindsey said you should just come here, so I tried it and loved it! That will be 4 yrs in May.

What is your favorite music you listen to when you workout ?

I listen to Disturbed and Motley Crue

Name one favorite meal or snack that you enjoy the most.

My snacks are blueberries and my new favorite meal is chicken and brussel sprouts.

What is your most memorable moment at CFM?

My most memorable moments are hitting my new PRs… 😎

What would you tell someone looking at joining CFM?

I would say this is the best thing that ever happened to me and if you are looking for a place to motivate and push you to be healthier and stronger you found it! I love my CFM family!! Thank you 😊

Meet Nancy 74 years young!

“Two years ago I stopped in to CrossFit Maricopa. I was 72 years old and had chronic back & hip pain. Wondering if CrossFit would benefit me, Scott said “CrossFit is for everyone”.

When I started, my joints and muscles were so stiff and tight that it was very difficult to perform the simplest of movements.

In the semi-private training group since day one where all my workouts are tailored just for me!

I feel like a new person and turned the clock back! Thanks for making me stronger, more flexible and energetic!”

February is Love Your Fitness Month

“You’ll never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.” ―John C. Maxwell

Motivation is what got you to sign up at CrossFit Maricopa in the 1st place but it’s HABIT that will keep you going for the long run. How do you create an exercise habit? Here are a few tips/tricks. 1) Set a time to exercise. Commit to a specific class time daily. Choosing the morning one day and the evening the next will make it difficult to form a habit. PM Kelly if you’d like a recurring schedule set up in Zen Planner (ie M-F at 6AM). 2) Start Small. If you haven’t been getting in at all, don’t jump into 5x per Week of CF. Instead commit to 3 classes per Week and walk/run/bike for 20 minutes on your off days. As you get used to moving every day, then you can add in more CF days. 3) Have your workout clothes ready. If you’re committing to 6AM, then lay out your workout gear the night before. If you’re committing to working out after work, put your gym bag in the car. 4) Don’t Skip a Day. Give yourself a 30 Day Challenge to exercise daily & don’t skip a day. If you’ve committed to CF on M/W/F at 6AM and 20 minutes of walking on your off days, don’t skip a day during the 30 days. PM Kelly if you want accountability for your 30 day exercise challenge or commit to a challenge with a friend at CFM. If you’re struggling to get in & get motivated, send Kelly a message and we can create a plan to hold you accountable.

“It’s not enough to be busy; so are the ants. The question is: what are we busy about?” ~Henry David Thoreau

If you’ve been struggling to get into the gym because you just can’t seem to find time, you may need to pause and see what you’re so busy doing. Take a piece a paper and write down all the things that you do in a day. Is there anything you can spend less time doing or erase altogether? For instance do you spend 2 hours a day on social media or watching TV? I guarantee that if you try this exercise, you’ll find that you do have 3-5 hours per Week to make your health a priority! If you try this exercise, I’d love to hear how it went for you. 🙂

This Week is Personal Record (PR) Week at CrossFit Maricopa! We’ve trained our lifts for the last 6 months and now it’s time to test how that training has paid off! If you’re new to CFM or haven’t been in consistently, we still want you to show up during PR Week! For new members, you’ll be able to set a baseline on your lifts. This is fun because you’ll be able to watch your gains as you continue with us. If you’re not ready for a PR (I’m in that camp), then give yourself grace and get in for a good workout!

PR Week line-up is: M: Push Press T: Back Squat W: Power Clean TH: Bench Press F: Deadlift S: Front Squat

Athlete of the Month: We’re bringing back AOM! Please comment on FB, PM or email your nomination by Wednesday, January 15th. Please include a few sentences as to why you chose the person you did.

Superbowl is right around the corner! And instead of Sugar Plums dancing in your head, you may be dreaming of pizza, nachos & beer to go along with the Game. But did you know that there are a ton of amazing Superbowl recipes out there that won’t kill your New Year’s Resolution to eat healthier? Just Google Paleo/Primal Superbowl appetizers and they’ll pop up! Our go to & party favorite is Bacon Wrapped Dates. I guarantee if you show up to a party with these, you won’t disappoint.

We’re excited to announce that JJ will be back to Coaching on January 21st. He will be coaching T/TH at 7:15PM. And Coach Tesha fans don’t fret, she’ll be back as soon as she wraps up her studies!
