The Gym will be closed this coming Saturday, 8/17, due to the 4th Annual Left Coast Invitational
Dear CFMG LCI Competitors,
In just a few short days, you will beparticipating in our gym’s very own annual competition. For some of you, thismay be your first competition and for others, it may be your second, third,fourth..... we want you all to know how proud the entire coaching staff and CFMGcommunity is of you as an athlete. Wehave watched you train hard and prepare physically and mentally for thiscompetition, and we can’t wait to see you reap the rewards of all your hardwork on Saturday. Some of you have askedus what you should be doing in the next few days leading up to the competition,and we wanted to address those questions, as well as give you someencouragement and motivation for competition day.
As with any competition, race, fitness event,etc., we love watching and hearing about all your achievements. Ourcoaching staff works hard to teach you the correct form, technique, and rangeof motion of each movement, as well as push you constantly to get better. Tosee all of this come to fruition on the competition field makes us feel likeproud parents. Please know that you always have the support of not only theCFMG coaching staff, but also the entire CFMG community. We are proud of youfor stepping outside of your comfort zone and testing your fitness outside ofthe gym.
The next few days leading up to the competitionshould be spent reviewing the workouts and the movement standards for the 2013LCI, as well as practicing movements that may or may not be your best. Iencourage you all to continue to train, mobilize, recover, and eat wellthroughout the rest of this week. Structure your training wisely, though. Youwant to lift and get your heart rate up but remember to “save some in thetank”. You do not want to do any training that is going to physically and/ormentally drain you or make you too sore to move well. The days leading up tocompetition should not be spent testing, performing benchmark workouts, or highvolume training. If you need further guidance on this, all you need to do isask one of your coaches.
Please keep in mind that whenever youparticipate in a fitness event outside of CFMG, you are representing us as agym and a community. Do not get so wrapped up in the competition that youembarrass yourself and your community. Of course, we want you all to win, butalways keep good sportsmanship in mind. The Left Coast Invitational is an eventput on by our gym, and we fully expect you all to be good ambassadors for ourgym.
Lastly, have fun! We know you are seriousathletes, but try to enjoy the day as much as you can and take it all in. We are all here for you, we believe in you,we support you, and we know you will do your best to make the most of the day.
Good luck CFMG Competitors!
