Be kinder

This year, I want you to be kinder. That sounds nice & sweet and pretty doable, right? Well, it’s more difficult than you think.

You see, I want you to be kinder to yourself.

Would’ve, Could’ve, Should’ve

Few things bother me more than looking back on a situation and feeling like I could’ve done more or should’ve done something differently. I’m not just referring to “I could’ve studied more for a test,” or “I should’ve turned down that last drink.”

Happy Thanksgiving!!

We hope you are enjoying a fun & festive Thanksgiving holiday with friends and family today. Enjoy all the food and football and rest up for Black Friday.

We'll be officially announcing our new programs tomorrow and there might just be some special deals involved. In the meantime, go back for seconds.

Thanks for being a part of the Momentum Fitness community. We are looking forward to an exciting 2017 with a new facility, an expanded team and new programs. Look for more announcements over the next few weeks. 

Don't fear the holidays

When you think of the holidays do you think of crisp, fall air, the smell of turkey roasting, joyous singing and happy times with family and friends? Or do you think of decorations that go up WAY too early, Black Friday/Cyber Monday specials, too many parties, too much food and that inevitable family blow up that happens every year?

Guideline not a limit

Every workout posted on the CrossFit Training Department's Instagram Account ends with that phrase. It's a simple phrase that carries a very profound message...a message that CrossFit has subscribed to from its very beginning. It's a message of gender equality that measures an athlete based on performance only.

Failure is not an end

We've all failed at some point in our life (Yep, even me). Sometimes it was something small like trying to beat your brother in a game of horse. Sometimes it was something big like divorce, bankruptcy, getting fired. 

Here's the thing...those things really aren't failures. It may be a cliche' but, like most cliche's, it is mostly true. We only fail when we fail to learn from our experiences.

Longer nights

October is a wonderful time of year at the beach. The weather is perfect. The water is beautiful. The only possible downside is that the days are getting shorter. 

With earlier sunsets, we all find ourselves using artificial light a little more each day. So, now is the time of year that we need to be aware of our exposure to blue light.

Taking time off

I know how controversial this is but I'm going to say it anyway;

Take some time off. 

It's Labor Day weekend, it's the perfect time for it. And you, yes, even you, deserve it. Let me say it differently; you need to take time off for your health and fitness.

Being a good example

You ever people-watch? It's hard not to, really. You ever wonder why? Mostly, I think it gives us metrics for our own behavior. You know, examples. We admire and sometimes emulate cool people or stylish or trendy people. Sometimes we wish we could be them or even try to act like them, building on their examples.

When is your time?

Being busy is a good thing. Being productive is even better. Making sure your actions move you closer to your goals is the key to being productive rather than just busy. 

Too often we get caught up in the right now. We give all of our time and energy to that task that seems so urgent: ordering supplies, paying bills, cleaning the toilet.

May be habit forming

You don't have to look far to find quotes about habits. The reason they're talked about so much is because of their power. A bad habit is seen as everything from an inconvenience to a prison. A good habit, on the other hand, can save your life or at least make it so much simpler.
