Wow if this keeps up I may soon be fluent in Spanish 😉 The CKO members are very special, it seems as if they are always raising the bar of what I thought was possible! There was a time when sports scientist and even some of the worlds most elite runners thought that running a mile in under 4-minuets was beyond human capability, it was IMPOSSIBLE . Between the 1940’s and 1950’s many tired and many came very close, but a sub 4-min mile seem just out of reach. Then on May 6, 1954 a medical student named Roger Bannister did the impossible and ran a mile in 3:59.4! The world was shocked, Roger Bannister did the impossible, and many thought his record breaking run would last forever, but just 46 days later John Landy ran a sub 4-min mile too! Now thousands of runners, even high school athletes are now able to run a mile in less than 4-mins.
So how did something go from being impossible to something amateurs are now capable of doing? The answer is the human mind and learning to push through our self-imposed limitations. First it takes a very special person to challenge the “status quo” and BELIEVE that nothing is impossible. Then once we as humans know something is possible, a light bulb goes off in our head, telling us “hey if they can do it, so can I”. This is a powerful realization because just knowing something is possible, changes our entire mindset, while the specific task may not be easy, we know that it can be done and that my friends is what we call a game changer!
So if Jon Rogers is CKO’s version of Roger Bannister, Kristina Wilson is John Landy! So just one week after Jon Rogers did the elusive CINCO (5-classes in one day), Kristina Willson took on the 5-class challenge, proving once again we are only held back by our own self- imposed limits. Congratulations Kristina Willson!
So what does this have to do with fitness? We all know that healthy body/lifestyle transformations are 100% POSSIBLE, in fact, every year hundreds of thousands of people have; lost weight (many in much worse circumstances than your own), reduced their medication, and look and feel 10-years younger, hell in just 1-year we have had numerous healthy lifestyle transformation at CKO Seattle! So the only reason you have not yet reached your goal is because of your own self-imposed limitations. Never forget that a complete health transformation is 100% POSSIBLE, I am not saying it will be easy but it can be done, and you, yes YOU are capable of it but you must first believe than you MUST take action!
