I’m going through a change. A real life change. And I’m trying to wrap my head around it and weigh the risk and reward for the changes that are going to inevitably take place.
I am switching CrossFit gyms. This may not seem big, but it’s big. I’ve been at my current gym for 2 1/2 years. I go every single day on lunch. I can basically walk there. It’s SO convenient. But, I’m ready for a change. I feel like I go through this every couple of years. Maybe not with the gym, but with another aspect in my life.
I met with a couple of different gyms, but this one kept drawing me in. I had been following the owner of the gym I really liked on social media for a while and she’s basically a badass weightlifter. She’s been to CrossFit Regionals, which is a big deal. I just kept telling myself that I’m not going to join another gym for convenience. If I make this change, I want to do it to be a better athlete. I want to be able to learn from the best of the best.
When I met with the new gym owner in person, we instantly clicked right away. I knew I was going to chose this gym.
However, this gym is not close to my house or close to my work, therefore, it’s changing my family dynamic at home. Whenever I make the switch, I will have to go in the morning. Normally in the morning Scott and I work together and get the kids ready. But, this will not be the case anymore. My class will start at 6:00 a.m., therefore, Scott will have to get the kids ready and get them to daycare by himself. I asked him multiple times if he was going to be okay with this. He just keeps reassuring me that everything will be okay and he is okay with the change. First and foremost, that’s all that matters to me is that my family can adapt to the change and that everyone is okay with the change.
After Scott and I spoke about it, it was time for me to tell my current gym. It’s something I did not want to do. The owners aren’t just my coaches, they are my friends. I was so scared they were going to hate me. The day I told them, I was physically sick over it. I just wanted to tell them and get it over with and off my chest. After I told them, I felt SO much better. I still have a membership with my current gym until January. So I am going to continue to go maybe once a week until the end of the year.
I am making this change next week on 7/11. I am looking forward to it. I just hope everything works out.
The gym is my biggest change so far, but there are some potential changes that I am trying to weigh the risk and reward for…
Until next time…
