Here’s why you have a coach at Lah:
There’s too much out there. You can’t do everything, even though you might want to. A lot of it looks—or sounds—great!
We’re talking about subscribing to a diet, taking fancy supplements, increasing your workout volume with multiple programs or even tackling WODs on a daily basis with no rest days.
But you can’t do it all, and trying to do too much will actually set you back. Most of us are guilty of trying it more than once.
Everyone has heard about overtraining, and we’re all scared of getting injured. But most don’t realize there’s an optimal amount of training to do, just like there’s an optimal amount of food to eat.
Too little exercise, and your progress will be slow. But did you know doing too many workouts can have the exact same effect?
We choose CrossFit for our training because it has a great balance: It’s not too little and it’s not too much. But even as hard as some of our workouts are, many people are tempted to do more: to add a little “recovery run,” or even to do multiple workouts in a day. This is NOT the path to success.
More is NOT better. Better is better.
You have a coach. That coach is your filter. Your coach is there to help you, not throttle you.
Your coaches are here to tell you what’s optimal, not what’s minimal. Our aim is to make you better every single day.
At Lah, our coaches want to talk to you every 3-4 months. One-on-one. We want to know about your goals, review your progress and then give you the best possible prescription to reach them.
That being said, we are thrilled to start offering Athlete Strategy Sessions as a part of your membership!
What we DON’T want is for you to have to guess. We don’t want you to try a fad diet just because you read an instagram post from an “influencer” who subscribes to it. We don’t want you to drink a gallon of protein shakes a day just because you saw it in an online article. We don’t even want you to do what everyone else in the gym is doing, because their workout strategy is theirs. It’s not yours. Train for yourself, tailor to your individual goals: That’s what our coaches want to help you do.
Next time you see a random workout online and think, “Oooooh, that looks spicy! Gotta try it in Open Gym!” ask your coach if it fits your goals. Take it from us, who may have learned the hard way!
