And so another year draws to a close, for some it'll be your first year in CrossFit,  and if you've been doing it consistently for more than 3 months you'll no doubt have had all the early improvements both in your fitness but also in your physical appearance. Those close to you will probably have started to comment on your appearance and your attitude. This is just how it goes.

Ask yourself how do I look, feel and perform? The rest is just words.  Enjoy the journey.

For others it is a time to reflect on your performance goals, both those that have been achieved and missed in 2015, and what you would like to happen in 2016.   Most importantly though is how you are going to commit to achieving them. To help in this process I will be wiping the "Goals" white board tomorrow and invite you all to write (in very small writing) your name and 3 goals for 2016.  Cross them off as they are achieved. That way you are publicly accountable for them.

Good luck gang, and no matter who you are, commit to making 2016 a healthier and fitter year than 2015.
