Drew's Words of Wisdom...
In case you missed it, here's Drew's latest TACO - Teaching Athletes to Conquer Obstacles Video - Everyone wants to be a champion, but no one wants to put in the hard work.
Welcome to the Fit Fam Sean O and Jessica B! Welcome Back Alexis!
SATURDAY SHOWDOWN -
Over the last 5 weeks so many of you have done things for the first time. First pullups. First toes to bar. Clean PRs. First Muscle-up. First competition! It's worth it to pull the training wheels off sometimes and put yourself out there. I'm so proud of this community for your healthy competitiveness - not against each other all the time - but against your old selves. Every year the Open gives us a chance to measure our progress and celebrate the work put in during the year.
Remember, it's not about WHAT you do, it's WHO you become in the process.
This is a great time to meet up with your primary coach and break down your Open performance. Chances are you've realized that there are somethings you are good at and something you aren't. Go ahead and run with that momentum and desire to improve the holes in your games. Your coach is here to help you work at a plan through the whole year.
Last, one final THANK YOU so much to our sponsors for making all of this possible!
Thank you to our sponsors! Service Master Restore, Audiology and Hearing Aid Services LLC, CryoRecovery Savannah, Advertising Specialty Services, Keller Williams - Penny Flowers, Chatham Orthopaedic Associates, Thomas and Hutton, and Inventure IT
