Here’s why you have a coach:
There’s too much out there. You know you can’t do everything, but it takes your focus away for a bit because it sounds good.
I’m talking about the daily “noise” you hear about the best diet plans, most effective supplements, and the workout programs or even daily WODs that produce amazing results.
But you can’t do it all, and all too often we see people “fail” because they feel overwhelmed.
Everyone knows about overtraining, and we’re all scared of getting injured. But most don’t realize there’s an optimal amount of training to do, just as there’s an optimal amount of food to eat.
Too little, and your progress will be slow. But doing too many workouts has the exact same effect.
We choose CrossFit for our group classes because it’s a great balance: It provides a diversity of workouts that are not too little, but also not too much. However, even as challenging as CrossFit workouts are, we often see athletes tempted to do more: to add a little “recovery run,” or even to do multiple workouts in a day. This is NOT the path to success!
More is NOT better. Better is better.
Your coaches at Xtra Mile are your “filter,” to make sure you are doing what is in your BEST interest.
Your coaches are here to tell you what’s optimal to achieve your goals.
At Xtra Mile Fitness, our coaches want to talk to you every 3-4 months. One-on-one, in person. We want to put you on the InBody, ask about your goals, review your progress, and then give you the best possible plan to achieve your goals..

What we DON’T want is for you to have to guess.
We don’t want you to try fad diets just because someone else is doing them. We don’t want you to hit a second (or sometimes third) workout a day because you saw online that others are doing it. We don’t even want you to do what everyone else in the gym is doing, because their program is theirs. It’s not yours. Train in a group, tailor individually: That’s what our coaches do.
You have a coach.
They’re a filter to help you achieve your goals!
Next time you see a workout online and think, “Oooooh, that looks spicy! Gotta try it after noon group tomorrow!” ask your coach if it fits your goals. Many of us have learned the hard way, and we want to see you succeed on your journey.
