Why do you train?

Our Why board has been up for a few weeks now and it’s gotten some great responses! Hopefully it got you thinking about what gets you in the gym – what are your goals? Do you play a sport? For your kids/grandkids? For GAINZ?

It’s easy to lose sight of why we train, especially when the clock is running, or when the person next to you puts 10 more pounds on the bar. Check out this great article from Catalyst Athletics on why and how we train: Are You an Athlete or an Exerciser?

Remember, we train to become better – faster, stronger and more fit. If your training doesn’t improve your life, maybe you should sit back and reconsider how you approach your time in the gym. Your workouts should be about getting fitter, not being the first to finish the WOD!
