The End Is Only The Beginning


Well, that was a crazy thirteen weeks. How about a recap! I took to the task of training, and I use that term lightly, a gentleman of larger stature. No one thought it could be done. I however, being the competitive person that I am, set out to prove them all wrong. Turns out I was wrong. Not so much in what I was doing, but how I was approaching the problem.Now, I’m not going¬† to bore you all with my theories on why failure from the start was almost guaranteed, but for the masochistic read up on the malfunction of serotonin . It’s really boring. So moving forward, I had lost my subject to circumstances that are hilarious and heartbreaking at the same time. The whole hospitalization still confounds me.¬† Then a week later I got a new client and everything changed. The “blog” became more of a potential tool for serious clients, rather than a half baked shot at hilarity. A site containing information for any client who wants to keep track of their goals, or compare what others are doing was becoming a reality. My new favorite quote comes from the CrossFit certification team: “We fail at our margins of experience”. Clearly, I was past my margins with Gargamel, but without the experience I gained from him, this evolution could not of taken place. As for Gargamel, I guess he’s the same. “Vodka soda, burger, bacon, cheddar cheese”.
