Trust The Process
One of the key pieces in your success is that you must trust the programming you follow and/or the guidance and direction we give you.
It seems that one of the biggest stumbling blocks in being a successful athlete is the tendency to overthink the process and second-guess everything we are doing. At CrossFit Belltown, we are strong believers that an athletes’ job is to be an athlete, and a coaches job is to be a coach.
This doesn’t mean that you can’t ask questions, give feedback or make suggestions on what seems to be working and not working. It just means that you shouldn’t have to think about the finer details of a program like progressions, energy systems, loading and volume. Too often we see athletes stress out because they aren’t seeing enough pulling or enough conditioning or the volume is too low, in their opinion. As soon as this happens, they either stop putting the effort into their sessions because they think “what is the point in this” or they add in a bunch of unnecessary volume… at which point the intensity plummets and any forward progress inevitably suffers, ultimately leading to either overtraining and/or injury. Both are not ideal scenarios.
We put a lot of effort into looking at results and staying involved with our athletes progress inside and outside the gym. We understand that in order to help you progress, we first need to build a relationship and community; a community that just so happens to be built on a helluva lot of PR’s!
Becoming a great athlete isn’t as easy as following a program. There are so many factors that play into programming workouts and the relationships we form along the way, but the most important for us is that you trust us.
