I love this quote above by C.S. Lewis. It resonates with me on many levels…

Here is what I would like y’all to takeaway from this, Commit to the Process.

Schedule Change

Written by Saskpro Crossfit on June 9, 2014

Attendance has been extremely low in our 11:30AM Saturday Beginner class. For the duration of the Summer we will no longer have a 11:30AM Beginner class. All Beginners are welcome during the 8:00AM or 10:30AM All Level Classes. :-)))))
We will ensure enough room for everyone in these 2 classes. Regular Class time will resume after the September Long weekend.

The hips are the centre of the body and are

The Map Appears when the Car is in Motion…

At times we all just want the answers and we want them NOW.  A detailed plan, a blueprint we can ‘copy’ and use to just simply get results.  We want a hard, black and white version.  In reality –  the world often is varied shades of grey though, and instead of having a hard copy – old school  map I encourage you to think in terms of a smart phone GPS!
