Not everyone feels great all the time. Some days you just don’t have it. Others your full off energy. Everything from the weather to the Mexican food you had too much of the night before can cause your performance to suffer. Sleep, stress and nutrition are the three most important factors of mood and energy levels. If you just don’t feel like working out today. Try a long walk or stretch for an hour. Don’t give in completely and not workout. “Just change” your program to suit you and how your feeling.

“You look fabulous”
I decided to look into CrossFit because I was in a rut at my local gym and was looking for a change. I had lost motivation because I was so bored with my daily workout routines and I really needed to get in shape for my upcoming wedding. A friend told me about CrossFit, so I thought I’d give it a try. My friend, Katie, and I took a class with Luke at CrossFit Scottsdale and we both LOVED it! It was so different from my tedious routines at the gym, and it actually made me look forward to exercising. I have been taking CrossFit classes with Luke for 4 months now, and we haven’t repeated a workout once. The workout of the day (WOD) is always different, which makes keeps it fun and exciting. The workouts are intense, but fun and rewarding. Luke is an awesome coach and does a great job of encouraging us and inspiring us to continually better ourselves.
