Topic today is: “If it doesn’t challenge you it doesn’t change you”
One of the biggest ways to learn and become better is to go through a challenge. It can be a challenge you do not want or one that you create for yourself.
One of my favorite parts of CrossFit is that we train for the unknown and the unknowable. We do this in our daily training and especially during the CrossFit Open.
One of my many areas of improvement in CrossFit is Double Unders. We of course started the CrossFit Open this year with Double Unders 😀 This has been a great exercise for me and it has helped me to learn patience and mind control. When I get frustrated with them they get worse. When I stop and breathe they improve.
This is a minor challenge but something that has taught me a lesson. That has been my takeaway lately 😀
I have been reading Jordan B. Peterson’s new book Beyond Order 12 More Rules for Life
He is my favorite author and such a thought provoking writer for me.
Rule # 7 in his book is: Work as hard as you possibly can on at least one things and see what happens.
This can be in the gym or this can be something that you have a desire to work hard at accomplishing or overcoming an obstacle.
For me I choose one main challenge 1-2 times per year physically.
My main current challenge is training for Rim to Rim to Rim at the Grand Canyon again. I did this back in October and I have some friends that were not able to join me at that time so I am joining them and doing it again. I also have Shayne from Therazona going with me again.
3 Ways to Improve at Life

choose a challenge that scares you a little
train like everything depends on it
complete the challenge and choose your next challenge. Keep this cycle going.

I have had the experience of doing this and it has lead me to take on other challenges within my relationships and work.
The main areas I have been working on personally are relationships with family and friends, work and a personal challenge.
This has been an incredible focus for me and I am starting to see so many areas of my life improve. I know this can help you to do the same!

Owner and Coach Kris LeSueur believes that fitness is a great building block for helping people improve their lives. “I love how health and fitness help people feel better about themselves,” he says. “I love the confidence it builds for each individual person.”  Kris has spent a lot of years training for marathons, adventure racing, and triathlons. His most notable athletic accomplishment was finishing SEALFIT Kokoro Camp, a 50+ hour (no sleep allowed!) event based on Navy SEAL Hell Week training. He’s completed two full-distance Ironman Triathlons (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, 26.2 mile run), multiple half-Ironmans, qualified for Xterra Triathlon Nationals and completed multiple adventure races and marathons. “I love anything endurance related,” he says. “When you start to think about quitting and you do not in these type of events, you really discover who you are in life.”
