Special New Year’s Day Class


The noon crew.


My first martial arts teacher placed a lot of importance on New Year’s day.  He claimed that the first day of the year sets the tone for the entire year.  Whatever you want from that year, you should do on day 1.

If you want to make strength gains, lift heavy on one one; if you want to surf a lot, go surfing; if you want to make money, count your money; if you want to get your diet under control, eat really well; if you want to deepen your relationship with someone, spend some quality time with that person; if you want to PR a lot in 2012, then get to class and train hard.  In short, if there is something that you want from 2012, do it on January 1st. And there is enough time in a day to do a lot.

My teacher would say that having fun and partying on New Year’s eve is all well and good, but if you want to have a great productive year, then don’t spend the first day in a daze.  That first day primes you and your interaction with the whole universe for that  year.

In order to help you have the best training year yet, CrossFit West Santa Cruz is holding a special New Year’s class on Sunday, January 1, at 10am. Come train with your community, come train hard. Open Gym will start at 11 as usual.
