In teaching a session for one of Priscilla’s upper division sports medicine classes yesterday, we were talking about how important the aspect of fun plays in keeping people returning to a workout. That it’s not just plain, good old fashion, results that keep people returning… But it’s also the fact that they can move around, let out energy, and simply have fun during a training session that keeps them coming back. What do you think about this? Does training have to be fun to continue long-term?
Big Mike owns and operates CrossFit Tulare in central California… He was our first intern that went on to complete our coaches Preparation program and then opened his CrossFit gym. The motto of his gym is – it doesn’t have to be fun to be fun. Let’s hear your comments!
