So we all love the competitions but the costs add up. A fun race of interest coming up is the Spartan Race. It is of particular interest because I have a way that you can do this one for free!
The race takes place on April 30th at Georgia International Horse Park. It’s a short 3 mile course with tons of mud and a lot of fun obstacles, you can check out more details about the course here.
How is it free you ask? By simply volunteering for 5 hours you get: A free meal, a free beer, a free t-shirt and free race entry for yourself or a family member. It’s that simple! A few hours of your time and you get to eat, drink and get messy on someone else’s dime. I think it’s a pretty sweet deal! If you are interested send Rebecca Rose an email at email@example.com and tell her you’re from Crossfit Paragon.

3. We’re implementing a cool new project which we will need pictures of everyone in the gym. So this coming week we’re going to be taking them. They’re going to be just the face, so don’t worry about dressing up, but if you’re concerned with looking nice consider this your warning.
4. Saturday are Bring a Friend day! At 10 a.m. we will give any beginners a chance to do “Cherry” in a group setting. Remember that if your friend signs up for a membership you get a month free. If you get enough friends to join you could potentially get a year free!

A little food for thought….
“Psychologists used to think that O.K. plateaus marked the upper bounds of innate ability. In his 1869 book “Hereditary Genius,” Sir Francis Galton argued that a person could improve at mental and physical activities until he hit a wall, which “he cannot by any education or exertion overpass.” In other words, the best we can do is simply the best we can do. But Ericsson and his colleagues have found over and over again that with the right kind of effort, that’s rarely the case. They believe that Galton’s wall often has much less to do with our innate limits than with what we consider an acceptable level of performance. They’ve found that top achievers typically follow the same general pattern. They develop strategies for keeping out of the autonomous stage by doing three things: focusing on their technique, staying goal-oriented and getting immediate feedback on their performance. Amateur musicians, for example, tend to spend their practice time playing music, whereas pros tend to work through tedious exercises or focus on difficult parts of pieces. Similarly, the best ice skaters spend more of their practice time trying jumps that they land less often, while lesser skaters work more on jumps they’ve already mastered. In other words, regular practice simply isn’t enough.For all of our griping over our failing memories — the misplaced keys, the forgotten name, the factoid stuck on the tip of the tongue — our biggest failing may be that we forget how rarely we forget.To improve, we have to be constantly pushing ourselves beyond where we think our limits lie and then pay attention to how and why we fail. That’s what I needed to do if I was going to improve my memory.”
