Coaches Comments: Travis is an awesome guy to have as part of the morning workout crew. He also managed to take home the 1st place prize in a recent 30 day Challenge at the gym!  His commitment, consistency and hard work have definitely paying dividends. His coachability and commitment to get better is great. No matter what workout you put in front of him, he knocks it out.  He is getting stronger, faster, and just all around more awesome and UNKILLABLE!

“Minimizing the What-Ifs”

When I started CrossFit, my collegiate athletic career, aka “the glory days”, was already over.

For my first 22 years of existence, sports were everything to me. I loved being around groups of people who had the same goals, loved hanging out with teammates after practices, loved competing, but mostly, I loved that there was always something to work for.

I didn’t know it at the time, but all the things I loved were core CrossFit principles.

When I was still competing, I heard a quote that hit me like a ton of bricks. “The fear of sporting failure is worse than the fear of death.” It was like someone took my feelings and threw them down on paper.

I trained (or what I thought was training) so I didn’t let myself down, my teammates down, my coaches down etc. I’d do a bunch of shooting drills, lift a few weights i.e. do some curls, chest press etc, and then go for a long slow boring run. To me, that was fitness, that was what would separate me from the rest.

Fast forward a few years: enter CrossFit. What CrossFit has shown me is the actual definition of work, fitness, and results. Another thing it has shown me is regret. Yes, regret. I look back at my competitive days with a lot of regret and a ton of what-ifs.

What-if I: knew about CrossFit earlier? How much better could I have been? How much better could our teams have been?

At a time in life when I am suppose to be slowing down a little, losing my athletic ability; I am still getting better every day thanks to CrossFit.

My main goal as a coach is to help others where I have failed. I want to help you remove all doubt and any what-ifs. Whether you are trying to make the team, earn a starting spot, or keep your starting spot. I want to give you peace of mind, so when someone asks you, “Did you do everything you could?” you can say “YES!” and mean it.

At Titletown CrossFit, we get better every day so you never have to say “what-if” again.

And away we go!  Lots of competition events on the horizon, The Ice Bowl, The CF Games Open, and the Wisconsin Weightlifting Championships all within 2 months time.

Of special note here is the slight changes we will see in programming.  One thing will be skill work daily, and for the most part there will be a timed aspect to it, because after all, competitions are timed.  They will also have an emphasis towards what the Open has been in the past.  Although with the announced changes to the format, namely a Scaled version, there are sure to be some tweaks from the mind of Dave Castro!

The Ice Bowl standards have been released, however with no release of the WODs in advance this year there will be no specific emphasis on the movements outside of the regular classes.

MOBILITY is going to be key over the next couple months, will it be programmed in?  Not necessarily.  HOWEVER, you can always take an extra 5-10 minutes post-WOD to work out any issues that you’re dealing with.  The mobility book will always be right where it always is, find a region you want to work on and become familiar with the movements.

The Wisconsin Weightlifting Championships are April 11th at The Bar East in Green Bay.  If you want to compete there are a few hoops to jump through.  First you must become a USAW member.  Then you must compete with a weightlifting singlet (a wrestling singlet is fine).

One thing I’d like to ask of you is this: if not competing, show up.  Cheer on your fellow gym members, fellow CrossFit athletes, watch and feel the intensity of competition first hand, and then next time, compete!

So here we go, the next few months will pack in a lot of work, a lot of sweat, maybe some tears…but this is what you’ve been training for since the Open finished up last year!  We will score better, we will finish higher, we will astonish ourselves and be super excited about how far we’ve come.  And we will still be super mad that we didn’t do better…but that’s why we compete!  For the love of the game!

God Bless!
