12 Jun The G-Force Source: Experience life and adventure
“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.”
– Eleanor Roosevelt
Each and every day, we go about our daily routines: eat, work, eat, work some more, poop, eat, train, eat and sleep. Before you know it, you’ve completed this daily routine for as long as you can remember and a year has passed where you look back and wonder, “What the hell did I do with my life this past year?”
Routine has its purpose, but you must remain focused on other hopes and dreams and work towards achieving and experiencing them, rather than thinking about the next day’s routine. The hopes and dreams we’re referring to are those that are adventurous and outside your realm of normality.
For us at G-Force, we want to see you all experience fitness, experience CrossFit, and experience all other aspects of what we focus on at the gym. To ensure you’ve received a wholesome approach, you must go on adventures. Enlist in courses, training camps, visit other gyms around the world, and if CrossFit is your cult of choice, think about going to The CrossFit Games and watching the world’s best on the main stage.
We want you to look back at your year and nod in approval at your accomplishments; not just going about your daily routine.
On Tuesday, I fly off to Uzbekistan for my second trip there for a weightlifting training camp. Last year, I had the pleasure of training and socialising alongside some of the world’s best weightlifters. This year is going to be extra special, because we will watch the Uzbek Olympic team in training shortly before they venture off to Rio for the 2016 Olympics. I am happy and proud to say that Ruslan Nurudinov and his cohorts are my friends, and I’m very much looking forward to training with them again.
The training camp in Uzbekistan, organised by Atletika Weightlifting’s Ricky and Sarah Gulyamov, is very much an adventure.
What have you done and where have you gone this year?
See you all in the gym.
