We couldn't be prouder of CrossFit Resolve alumni Jana D for not only taking out the in-house comp at her new Melbourne home CrossFit Richmond but also winning the Coaches Choice award . . . The source of our pride is not in any role we may have played in her athletic development but a deep satisfaction in seeing the consistency and application she always demonstrates paying off . . .  We have no doubt that her achievements in CrossFit are just the beginning and will continue to watch with interest her achievements both athletically and otherwise . . .

Good character is not formed in a week or a month.  It is created little by little, day by day.  Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.

While we appreciate the challenges involved - especially during partner workouts - in accommodating Glenn C since the recent and tragic loss of his head, we pride ourselves on being an inclusive facility and would ask people to bear with us as we endeavour to overcome the obvious difficulties  . . .

 

The first and greatest victory is to conquer yourself; to be conquered by yourself is of all things most shameful and vile.

Scott A

Repost Scott A - The last three months I took on a 'Nutrition challenge' at our gym, over the course of three months I lost approximately 4kgs and went from 18% body fat to 17% body fat. Initially I wasn't very happy but it's important to look back at the old me and see where I've come from and just remind myself it's still heading in the right direction. There's no miracle pill or surgery that would've changed my mind that good eating and consistent exercise is the best way to heal the body and mind. The picture of me on the left is me at approximately. 135kgs in 2012, i arrived in Oz around 125kgs and I now sit at 92kgs.

I'm about to start my 1,3 and 5 yr goals and I'm sure that as 2016 closes you're maybe planning your new year resolution on getting healthier in 2017.

I joined Crossfit Resolve back in February and it's without doubt changed my life. The steadfast coaching and fantastic community has been incredible. I urge you to find your healthy passion in 2017 (be it Dancing, boxing or walking) and wish you all the best.....

Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.

Strategic math WOD . . .

We choose to go . . . not because [it is] easy, but because [it is] hard, because that goal will serve to measure and organise our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win.

If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.
