What are You Looking For??

Posted by:

What are you looking for – the fountain of youth, weight loss, balance, power, strength, or maybe a solution for a healthy long life, where you are functional right until the end? Things like these come from people like you and me, the 0500 CF crowd, the Saturday throw-down crew and those running out for ‘lunch’ and CF at 1230.

People who have changed their lives at Trident CF — THEY are the proof that Constantly Varied, Functional Movements performed at high Intensity and a smart, sound, high quality diet works. Where else have you been where the trainers cared how much you slept the night prior, how you have been eating, “are you injured, sore.” Go to a ‘regular’ aka Globo gym and they actually prefer if you don’t show up, hell they are still collecting the money and that leaves the treadmill with a TV for someone else.

TRIDENT is on the front lines of changing the way fitness is viewed. My bet – in ten years TRIDENT will be the norm and “Globo Gym” will be left only to those who do not want to put in the effort to make change – maybe we need a road trip to Vegas to get the Odds on that one….

I see a future where Doctors prescribe workouts and diets instead of pills and MRIs. Physical Therapists have their injured doing WODs like Cindy or Nicole for rehab. This future will happen. I used to think the Europeans were crazy/lazy when I lived in there – the doctors would ‘prescribe’ a vacation to the Canary Islands for them to get sunshine in the dreary winter months – now I know they are cutting edge! The firestorm is coming.

We have children, including mine, doing CrossFit, eating paleo, succeeding in their sport, breaking records. These children will become doctors, physical therapists, nutritionists, teachers, coaches, moms, and dads. Nothing can stop them and they are armed with the most important/deadly weapon in the world – knowledge. I see the United States in the future, where obesity is once again rare, and the leading cause of death is trauma, instead of Cancer and heart disease. Type II Diabetes…eradicated and companies that make the drugs to lower Insulin levels and high blood pressure are making holistic supplements instead.

It all starts with you – we give you the keys to enable the future you envision. Maybe it is dancing with your great granddaughter at her wedding – hell I am going to be racing my great grandkids…whatever it is, it goes back to the post I made earlier on accountability.

So what ever you looking for – got find it and tear into it like you do the WODs

    Great article. And it is amazing to see what well rounded workouts will do for you and then throw in the component of paleo eating and the results are even more profound. watching shows like Biggest loser and watch a man who was on numerous medications and 3 insulin shots a day go from that nightmare to needing none of it in 3 months should be a wake up call for others who are in the same situation.
    I know I find myself feeling my best after a wod and when I was much stricter with my diet. Now to get back to the gym more and get back to more natural foods.

    Having just been to the doctor this morning for a follow-up visit after knee surgery… I can attest to what Crossfit has done for me. 2 months after surgery I started at Crossfit. It was a little slow going at first, but it gets better everyday. My doctor actually likes the cross-training that I’ve been doing instead of peddling away on the eliptical for an hour, or doing the same ole exercises at a conventional gym. Best of all, what he likes, and what I like is the attention you get a Crossfit. Having been through physical therapy and suffered injuries, I REALLY appreciate that there are coaches always watching and paying attention to my form, what I’m doing, and how I’m doing it.

    I know the work is up to me. But it definitely helps build confidence to know that someone is there paying attention and helping everyone get better. Still working on that perfect squat and climbing that rope. But for the first time in a long time…I feel like I’m getting somewhere instead of just peddling away on a machine.

    Thank you Crossfit!
