PLACEBO

"I can't do that. But what if I drop it? I don't want to look like an idiot. I don't want to be last. They are way better than me. But what if...?" These are the thoughts that stop us from doing things in the gym, and actually everywhere else as well. They are negative thoughts and they are loudest voices in our heads. No matter what you look like on the outside, if this is what's going on in the inside, then that will what be what is leading the charge to not making it. Think about when doctors and scientist do drug tests. They will give one test group the actual drug and the other a "placebo". The placebo is nothing more than an identical-looking pill or medicine or activity that is taken alongside the real one. The interesting fact is that you will have some people that will get the exact same results with the placebo as those with the actual drug/medicine/activity. But how?? There isn't anything in it so how would it work?? Its because the person BELIEVES it works. Our brains have the power to take us to the highest point of existence or the absolute lowest. And its all based off of what is going on between your ears. The power of belief is so strong that it can carry you through massive struggles but it only works when you wholeheartedly believe it. This isn't something you can "fake it until you make it". There has to be a true and full belief inside that you can do it, that you will make it, that you will be OK. But this isn't easy. It needs to be practiced. We have said before that our thoughts become our words, our words become our actions, etc, etc. so at the very core you need to look at the thoughts rolling around in your head and you NEED to put the reins on them. If they are spinning out of control in the negative, then stop them! Take a deep breath, let it out slow, tell yourself it will be OK and that you are OK. Make those words in your head be louder than the negative. The more you think these words, the more you will believe them. And when you believe them then there won't be anything you can't handle, but you have to believe it! Just like Confucius said...."Those that think they can and those that think they can't are usually both right". Which will you choose? :)

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!!

We are social beings and in our lives, we have come across many who we have become very close.  The maybe lovers, family members, or friends.  When we find these people, we feel secure, safe and loved.  Today is a day to recognize the people we love.  It's not about flowers and candy but about the recognition of what they mean to you.  Don't be shy.  Tell them how important they are to you.  Happy Valentine's Day to all of the INFERNITES!!!  We really do love you all!  Sure it may be cliche to do a partner workout on Valentines Day, but the object here is to have some fun, maybe meet someone new, or just enjoy some company during a workout rather than just before or after.  Don't be all goofy about it, just grab someone and go for it! Oh, and there won't be any singles people.  If there isn't an even number, then you will triple up and bump the reps up by 30% but also increase the burpees per minute by 3.  So the new numbers would be 133, 104, 80, 54, and 26 reps and 8 burpees per minutes alternating through all 3 members.  HAVE FUN AND HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!!!! :)

DONT HIDE

We had John Kim, the Angry Therapist, hang out with us talking about his book this past Monday. One of the points he talked about was to "not hide". This meant to be honest as often as possible. To be real and accepting of that. It sounds great but it very hard. I think hiding happens when we are afraid of having to deal with the ramification of being us, or feeling like we might get hurt, whether it's physical or emotionally by doing what we are doing. Do you ever feel like you have to sneak out to go get a burger, or to work out, or to buy a coffee? We are all in relationships of various degrees and most of the time we might feel like we don't want to rock the boat. But even feeling like we are going to "rock the boat" shows that we are fearing the outcomes of being ourselves. You need to be proud of yourself and the things you do. You need to be able to OWN the actions you do, whether they are good or bad. It's easy to own the great things we do. It makes us feel amazing as we can walk with our chest up high like we just won the Olympics. It's hard to own the bad choices or the f*ck ups we have done. But it's these times where you are really able to embrace yourself. Everyone will make mistakes. Doesn't matter how awesome you are or think you are, its GUNNA happen. But when you realize the mistake, realize exactly what it was and what it did, then work to not do that again, you grow. If you want to do something even though your partner, parents, etc don't what you to, you need to stand up and own it. There is a sense of pride and self-love when you are able to do this. It's not easy. It takes work. This also isn't about doing something to spite someone. It's about doing something that you feel is YOU. This is not hiding. It's not being afraid. It's backing yourself up. It's standing up for yourself. Its self-love first and then being your best you to offer to the world. Are you hiding?:)

THE OPEN

The Open. The CrossFit Open. It's the worlds largest online competition. Its a qualifier for the CrossFit Games. But more importantly, its a chance for YOU to test yourself and see just how far you have come since last year or from when you started working out. People always ask, "why should I do it? I'm not going to the Games." or "I'm not going to give $20 just to give CrossFit money". Both valid comments except you are missing the intent of the $20. Why do people pay $100 to do a weekend run, or $150 for a triathlon, or $80 to do a Spartan race? Because it officially puts them in. They are committed. It means something to put money down. It gives it value. You could do all those other things for free just like you could for the Open but that's not the point. When you officially throw your hat in the ring then you are being held accountable but your yourself, your friends, your team, your gym. It's scary, yes, but you are in YOUR house here at the gym. You are safe here! And when you are safe then you can let yourself go and achieve great things without any hindrance. Now if you are not going to do the worldwide Open, I REALLY hope you do the Intramural Open. First, it's an INFERNO family FUN TIME!!! We work out together every day. Now you are on a team and get to have some fun with others! You get to have a judge like the big kids on the TV. You get to have people cheering and feeling just how much that can push you. You get to get high fives from all your teammates. You get to contribute points to your team no matter how you finish in the workout. You get to cheer and push others on your team. You get to do things you have NEVER done before (We have had COUNTLESS PR's set during the Open time)!!! This is YOUR competition festival!!! ITS GUNNA BE A BLAST!!!! :)

MISERABLE F*CK TOUR

MISERABLE F*CK TOUR

"I Used to Be a Miserable F*CK!" is the new book written by John Kim, otherwise known as The Angry Therapist. Ever come to the conclusion that your own misery or unhappiness comes from your own shortcomings or own fractured beliefs? This is what he realized as he was reeling from a divorce and struggling to make his life as a screenwriter. The book talks about how to be a better man and the difference between being a boy and being a man, figuratively speaking. But this isn't just about men. It's about relationships and transparency with your partner. Want to be a better adult human? Then you have to come to listen to John as he presents this book to us and then opens the floor to discussion on any topic. He brings his own style and knowledge to the floor as a licensed therapist. It's real. It's raw. It's not brushed and polished. And it's these reasons that he resonates so well with the public. We get to have him do our "MISERABLE F*CK" workout at the 5 pm class then he will begin his presentation at 6 pm in the back room of the SLO INFERNO gym. He will have books to purchase and sign, but more importantly, he will be there to discuss what he has found to move from being a MISERABLE F*CK to being close to a truer version of himself! DONT MISS IT!!!:)
