Coaches Corner…with Coach Rachel

”The hardest thing to do is leaving your comfort zone. But you have to let go of the life you’re familiar with and take the risk to live the life you dream about.”  T. Arigo

Life:

Talk about getting out of your comfort zone in life. I lived in New York for my whole life, woke up each morning and drove over an hour to work and then an hour more to train. So many hours of my day were spent commuting but it got “comfortable.” This was my routine every day and we sometimes forget to sit back and make new decisions because we get too comfortable. I knew something had to change but I was scared to do it. I looked into changing careers, moving to the city, moving to California, Florida, or maybe Massachusetts but chickened out every time I went to take action. In January of this year I decided it was time to leave my comfort zone and take a chance. Many questions went through my mind…. How will I quit my job? When people ask me why I moved, what will I say? Would I have friends when I moved? I am 29 years old, is this too old to make such a big change in my life? How much am I going to miss my family? Will I live there forever and New York will no longer be my home? These questions were scary but I finally realized I would never know the answers to them unless I gave it a shot. The result… I did it and I have no regrets. I am better for it and so unbelievably grateful to have ended up where I am… and most importantly, I am happy!

GOAL FOR THIS WEEK…. Do something new in your weekly routine. Call someone you haven’t spoken to in a long time, make time for dinner with friends or family, be brave and get something off your chest you’ve wanted to for some time, do something you have been saying for way too long and that you “should” do.

Nutrition:

Leaving your comfort zone in the food you eat. This may seem like an odd statement but again we get comfortable in what we eat. We know sometimes we’re not eating the right things or we “should” eat better or “shouldn’t” eat that extra piece of pizza. My advice… try something new… leave your comfort zone of eating. Try paleo, try zoning, eat clean whole foods for 10 days straight, whatever you choose try something new.

GOAL FOR THIS WEEK… clean out your kitchen, get rid of the things you know shouldn’t be there and replace them with one’s that should… leave your comfort zone!

Training:

How many times have you clicked on the CFNE website and hoped for your favorite movement or WOD to be posted? We all do it. I am guilty of it along with everyone else. They are the movements we love to see because we are good at them and comfortable with them.

GOAL FOR THIS WEEK… Be positive when you see something you are not so good at, get uncomfortable in tomorrow’s workout so you know you’re pushing your limits, be excited to train your weaknesses and take extra time to do them because we know that’s what will make us better!
