CrossFit Gainesville- School Of Elite Fitness

Congratulations Aimee!

Please help me to welcome and congratulate CrossFit Gainesville's new Operations Manager, Aimee Green!

Aimee has experienced CFG through many perspectives since starting as a member in 2011. She's had the opportunity to be an athlete and walk in your shoes, to be coached, to be supported by you in class, and to understand how important our members happiness is. She's proven her passion for fitness through her completion of our coaches training program, by earning her credentials as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS), and being a trusted coach on our associate team.

Her coaching skill-sets and experience in administration will be a great fit to lead our team of coaches and community of athletes to new levels of growth. I'm incredibly proud to announce her acceptance of the responsibilities of this position and efforts to see each of you thrive in our training programs.

I believe that with her leadership at CFG we can bring the meaning of the term coach to new levels of member satisfaction and support for each of you. With the help of Aimee, we are on our way to being a world class fitness school that changes the way people see fitness and how they go about achieving their dreams.


Coaches Aimee and Kathy!

What Does It Mean To Be An Athlete?

A fellow member, Gary Wimsett recently sent me an interesting article on the perception of what it means to be an athlete. Now, athletes in many way's are like warriors taking to a battlefield to claim their glory over their adversaries. Do you fancy yourself a warrior on the CFG gym floor? I believe in our context of athlete, we are in training of our body's and minds to strengthen and overcome our own battles of laziness, poor nutrition, joint mobilization, and many other activities we know to battle our quest for our health and long term well being.

What do you think it means to be an athlete and how should one push themselves to overcome each small battle faced?

We'll in a recent NY Times article "Should We Teach Plato in Gym Class" offers up some intriguing views on preparing your body's intensity and receiving the right coaching to equally benefit your mind's power to conquer. According to the article, "a student-athlete if not someone who is learning a sport but also learning about the meaning and value of sport?"

I believe that there's a lot of value behind learning the meaning to your training, whether it be educational training concepts, a fun coaching cue that changes your position for the better, the support from a empathetic athlete, or simply the realization of knowing what you really want out of yourself through fitness. Through this education comes greater understanding, which in turn challenges you to be a more powerful athlete.

Check out the article here! (It's a bit philosophical, but it offered up a great perspective for those of you who want to peel away the layers of of your health and fitness psyche.)

 
Paul on the row!
