The You Be the Trainer series gives the CrossFit community a chance to compare their training savvy with top CrossFit coaches. In this edition, Monique Ames, Carey Kepler and Andy Petranek talk about motivating a client whose family commitments and nagging injuries are making it difficult to get to the box.
Joan got hooked on CrossFit a few years back, but a busy family schedule and several annoying injuries have sapped her drive. She isn’t setting anymore PRs, and her attendance is slipping. She’s on the verge of leaving CrossFit and potentially eliminating any sort of fitness from her life.
Is Joan too busy to stay fit? How do you get her motivated again?
The CrossFit Journal posed those questions to the community on Jan. 24, with several trainers chiming in with great advice. Check out what they had to say here and add your own solution to Joan’s problem. Then read the complete article and debate the solutions presented by affiliate owners Monique Ames (CrossFit Evolution), Carey Kepler (CrossFit Central), Andy Petranek (CrossFit L.A.) and Tony Budding of CrossFit HQ.
