CrossFit Intent

CrossFit Intent


Team Immunity had a field trip today, while honoring the social distancing directives. The trip ( which included a lengthy pow wow discussion to solve the world problems and an attitude adjustment series ) commenced at the Roulett home and moved onto the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. One of the stops was Szalayโ€™s to inspect the fields for crop rotation and corn production. The Blue Herron Hookery was one of the drive buy viewings. In the future we will go to the famous Country Maid Ice Cream stand to discuss Phase II of our short term strategies. Lots of fun. So happy to see each other on person!
Jason, Kyle and the rest of the team do a great job at intent. would recommend to anyone
Thanks Jason and Kyle and the group of people Iโ€™ve met for welcoming to be apart of the CrossFit Intent community! Looking forward to attending more classes and to get better everyday!

After being warned by doctors that his sedentary lifestyle and poor diet had put him on a path to Type 2 diabetes and an early demise, Ron Britt decided to make a change.

Instead of opting for a steady course of intense medication, Britt decided to take control of his health through fitness and nutrition.

โ€œThe changes that Ron has made with his nutrition (are) super simple,โ€ says Erica Celini, coach at CrossFit NYC. โ€œEat real food. Eliminate processed garbage.โ€

Our body released the "love hormone" or "cuddle chemical" Oxytocin when we sense we are included with the group & getting along with "the herd"

Oxytocin is released when we feel we have the safety of social support & is a natural response to a basic human driver.

๐Ÿ˜ง Due to the pandemic this hormone may not be getting released in you as much- but there are great ways to address this simply by knowing how our brain works:

When you are stressed, overwhelmed, anxious, or sinking into other "Fear-Based Emotions" - first breathe in deeply and exhale slowly.

Then ask yourself this question:

๐•Ž๐•™๐•  ๐•’๐•ฃ๐•– ๐•ฅ๐•™๐•ฃ๐•–๐•– ๐•ก๐•–๐• ๐•ก๐•๐•– ๐•จ๐•™๐•  ๐•”๐•’๐•Ÿ ๐•™๐•–๐•๐•ก ๐•จ๐•š๐•ฅ๐•™ ๐•ฅ๐•™๐•š๐•ค?
Often times, just by writing the 3 people down, you will feel much better.

โ„๐• ๐•จ ๐•”๐• ๐•ฆ๐•๐•• ๐•ฅ๐•™๐•–๐•ค๐•– ๐•š๐•Ÿ๐••๐•š๐•ง๐•š๐••๐•ฆ๐•’๐•๐•ค ๐•™๐•–๐•๐•ก ๐•ž๐•–?
Again, it is common to feel better just by writing out these requests, but not actually sending them. So you may not need step 3!

๐•ƒ๐•’๐•ค๐•ฅ, ๐•ค๐•–๐•Ÿ๐•• ๐•ฅ๐•™๐• ๐•ค๐•– ๐•ฅ๐•™๐•ฃ๐•–๐•– ๐•ค๐•š๐•ž๐•ก๐•๐•– ๐•ฃ๐•–๐•ข๐•ฆ๐•–๐•ค๐•ฅ๐•ค ๐•ฅ๐•  ๐Ÿ› ๐•ก๐•–๐• ๐•ก๐•๐•–
(text, email, letter, Social Media app)

The purpose of this exercise is to ease the feelings of isolation.

Isolation threatens our biological drives to be with the herd- so on a primal level, we might be feeling those fear-based emotions because we sense we are not with a group.

๐Ÿ…ฟ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ…พ ๐Ÿ†ƒ๐Ÿ…ธ๐Ÿ…ฟ:
Historically we USED to be more herd-like than now. Today we are much more independent.

Remind yourself that you are choosing to live an independent life, you are not an animal, you are a human with some old-wiring from our days as tribal-like-creatures. But many of our responses are outdated!

Today, your sense of safety is not truly threatened by being alone- it is only temporary.

What are more ways you can stimulate Oxytocin while you are alone? (ie building social bonds while alone)

Simply awesome

Jim Rowe, 70, was hesitant at first, but once he stepped into Clermont CrossFit in Minneola, Florida, his nerves relaxed. Now heโ€™s lost 75 lb., gained energy and made new friends.

Roweโ€™s dedication has transferred over into his home life, as well.

โ€œSince Jimโ€™s been going to CrossFit, we do seem to have a different way of life,โ€ says Roweโ€™s wife, Pamela. โ€œWeโ€™ve always been extremely close, but now we even get in the kitchen together. We cook, we clean up, we laugh more than I think weโ€™ve ever laughed.โ€

When Jim was diagnosed with a large blockage that could lead to a โ€œwidowmakerโ€ heart attack, his doctors said he was likely alive because of CrossFit training and improved nutrition. Today, Jimโ€™s been given a clean bill of health, and his cardiologist told him to return to the gym.

โ€œHe says, โ€˜Let me tell you: Donโ€™t change a thing,โ€™โ€ Jim recalls. โ€œโ€˜I want you to go back.โ€™โ€

โ€If you look at the list of conditions that increase the severity of covid-19 they are all diseases of inactivity.โ€

-Robert Sallis, MD
(Director of the Sports Medicine Fellowship Program in CA)

The gyms are the only businesses with built in tracing systems. We will know immediately if covid is spreading within our walls. So far, the gyms in 45+ states that are open HAVE NOT spread Covid. Thatโ€™s a large body of data.

As Americans we need to take action against this pandemic in the RIGHT WAY. Exercise is one of the most important ways. Lowering the severity of covid through exercise and improved nutrition is ESSENTIAL.

So why a gym? Statistically, there is a high failure rate for people who try to go it alone for many reasons. Hereโ€™s why seeking the help of your fitness professional matters.

โœ… The expertise of a fitness pro will help you achieve your goals safely.

โœ… The gym offers accountability.

โœ… The community and feeling of inclusivity is a massive aspect of members succes.

โœ… Gyms also counsel on nutrition and many offer wellness/lifestyle coaching.

โœ… At home, alone you quit way sooner than you ever would in the midst of your peers during class.

If this pandemic is to have any positives then it must be the realization that Americans need a return to a healthy lifestyle.

๐Ÿ‘Ž๐ŸผWeโ€™ve gotten away from valuing physical health. The importance of health has been debased to discussions of โ€œfat positivityโ€ and/or โ€œfat shamingโ€. This saddens me.

You are neither a better or worse individual based on your physical appearance.

๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅYou are however, more vulnerable to disease, early death, lack of energy, and unable to perform certain physical tasks to name a few.

Let us help you lessen those odds along with boosting your immune system and energy.

I have never met one person who ever regretted improving their health. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ

Find a Gym!
And Start Moving!!
Good luck everyone!!

Mindfulness is not simply "being happy".

It's a decision to NOT focus on unimportant things and a decision TO focus on the few things that do.

Mental toughness is a skill that requires practice and betterement. It's also a skill that requires pateince.

One of the simpliest tricks is to take a breath and counting to three. This life hack is a simple way to switch from emotional REACTING to thoughtful RESPONSE.

"Shutting up for 5mins and standing outside appreciating nature is a tremndous way to push out anxiety and frustraion."

Our minds are full of thoughts- some in support of your happiness & some not. Notice that it's natural to have so much happening in the mind. No need to judge. This is simply practicing the skill of focus ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ‘

๐ŸŽ‰ Stay tuned for next Monday!๐ŸŽ‰

Until then, remember that
Mindset Monday are here to:

โ˜‘๏ธ Invite you to build a daily mindfulness routine
โ˜‘๏ธ Share the growing evidence that mindfulness improves quality of life
โ˜‘๏ธ Encourage you to pray more
โ˜‘๏ธ Build the skill!

Thereโ€™s something different about this....
Give us a call. Ask some questions. Take a class.

Let Me Tell You About CrossFit.

Last week we posted some great stretches to try in a nice little session.

But we really would love if everyone had a stretching/mobility routine of their own after EVERY workout, and ideally, every day!

We like to think of your workout as 3 parts:
1๏ธโƒฃWarm Up

& Recovery can include a few things:

๐Ÿ’ฆ-a cool-down where you walk, bike, or jog at a very slow pace and eventually stop when your heart rate is back to normal BPM

๐Ÿ™†โ€โ™‚๏ธ -mobility, and/or flexibility

(FYI: Flexibility is defined as "the ability of a muscle or muscle groups to lengthen passively through a range of motion", whereas mobility is the "ability of a joint to move actively through a range of motion" )

One way to increase your range of motion (and therefore avoid injury by tending to muscle's health) is to ensure you are training it daily, just like anything else.

๐Ÿ’ชJust like any type of fitness, Flexibility & Mobility have to be trained!

And just as you would show up for a specific amount of timeโฑ for a workout, you must show up for a specific amount of time to Recovery with stretching or using mobility tools to work out tight muscles and increase blood flow.

๐Ÿ…ท๐Ÿ…พ๐Ÿ†† ๐Ÿ†ƒ๐Ÿ…พ ๐Ÿ†‚๐Ÿ†ƒ๐Ÿ…ฐ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ†ƒ:

โฐSet an alarm each evening when your day is winding down.
If you currently do not do this, start small: 5 minutes.

๐ŸฆตStretch a new body part each day of the week.
On longer sessions, work through more body parts.
