2 Reasons Why We Fail, by Evan Lindsay

2 Reasons Why We Fail

I have been reflecting on some different things in my life – some that have ‘worked’, and some that have been pretty epic on the fail side!  I came to 2 conclusions about times in my life when things didn’t work! Why I failed, and things I have noticed in others when they miss their marks/goals.  For simplicity, I think these 2 things sum it up:

1. Ineffective Plan
2. Ineffective Mindset

We fail when we don’t plan

Dedicated to Mobility, by Coach Janet

Written by Saskpro Crossfit on October 15, 2014

DEDICATED TO MOBILITY

 

An interesting quote came up at the mobility course I took a couple of summers ago with Dr. Kelly Starrett, the Crossfit mobility King. Why do people not dedicate more time to mobility? It’s simple, “because they can’t PR (personal record) when doing it.” Makes sense doesn’t it? Everyone wants to move more weight, run faster, and perform pull-ups. In order to achieve those movements, “you must be mobile.”

 

In reality, if you can’t move properly, how do you

Fear, by Evan Lindsay

Written by Saskpro Crossfit on October 14, 2014

Fear.
I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about fear, and even being afraid that I was fearing something(how crazy is that!). Scared of being scared.

I have thought about how fear has held me back – fear of failure, fear of success, fear of letting go, fear of losing something, just so freaking scared.

I feel like I have been working to overcome fear, and try to ‘beat it’ since I was a little kid playing hockey right through to junior, pro and beyond.

Transition Time, by Coach Janet

Written by Saskpro Crossfit on October 6, 2014

TRANSITION TIME:
JUST LIKE IN A TRIATHLON

Doesn’t matter what age you are, what job you do, or where you are personally in your life, Transition/Change is a natural progression we all go through. Saskpro is going through this transition, as we say goodbye to an excellent coach, but more-so to a really good friend.

Myles has been a part of this gym since I started and the change he has gone through has been interesting to watch.
He used to

Farewell, From Coach Myles

Written by Saskpro Crossfit on October 3, 2014

Hey SaskPro,
As most of you already know, this is my last week at SaskPro. I have struggled trying to put together into words what my time at SaskPro has done for me, but I’ll try my best.
As a coach, I am so proud to have been part of the changes that I have observed in peoples lives. Improvements in strength, flexibility, and movement are awesome to see, but what really touched my heart was watching members demeanors change after a

Touchdown, By Evan Lindsay

TOUCHDOWN, By Evan Lindsay
After a world wind set of months, and most recently a crazy 3 weeks of travel and work I am settled back into a routine with Kirstie, Dundee the dog and Biloxi the cat in Cayman.  This is a great feeling.  Since April there have been A LOT of changes, some amazing, some have tested us, some utterly surprising.  A crazy amount of planning, preparing and self-doubt (which oddly enough never seems to leave :-), but your skills
