Whether members, interested members, or drop-ins come to Humble Beast CrossFit, we always notice they stop to look at our goals board. A few things happen when people see the goals board. We noticed that they, 1. Make a connection between a member they know and the goal that member is striving to achieve, and 2. They find motivation to choose a goal of their own.
Many of you might avoid the goals board because you don't know how to go about setting a goal. Ask any coach, or even a member who has made a goal, to help you with yours!
Here are a couple of gym-related recommendations to help you find a goal:
The goal is to attend more often. Set a goal for how many times per week/month you would like to attend.
For example, if your goal is to attend the Saturday WOD more, pick Saturdays to attend yoga, the WOD, or both! This is the most overlooked goal and should be paramount to any other. Consistency in attendance will more than likely grant many other goals.
2. Body Composition
The goal here is to get an actual body composition evaluation and set your sights on a realistic body composition change. Stop letting the number on the scale or how your clothes fit be your goal or measurement. Truly learn to understand body composition.
You can make an appointment with our friends down the street at Composition ID and use the code HUMBLE for a 20% off discount on their services.
The goal is to pick one or two areas of your strength that you would like to realistically improve. This is something the coaches can work with you on. One thing very important to mention is that skill and movement comprehension MUST come before thinking/setting a strength (number) goal.
The goal is to learn that diet means structure, NOT restriction. Understand your nutrition better and set goals to cook for yourself, limit cheat/unhealthy meals. This could work hand-in-hand with body composition, and it should. You should potentially think of these two things are working systematically together rather than separate.

These are just a few suggestions for goals. No matter what goal or goals you decide to choose, document your decision and hold yourself and others accountable. Remember not to set your goals or expectations too high, or more importantly, too low!
Your goals board picture and description can be taken before or after class with the coach, pending their availability. You can also ask Lindsay or Tiffany at the front desk. Use the goals board for motivation and to help each other with accountability.
Please note that your goals do not have to be limited to the gym. Anything you want to achieve we are here as your gym family to help in any way we can!
