Tracking Progress

Tracking Progress:

Why it’s important & how to do it using the Oregon CrossFit website!

Every day we stroll into the gym, and we drag ourselves out. We sometimes feel we are getting better, but on days that may not be our best, we ask ourselves why we even come to the gym. This is when keeping track of our progress is key, we may not feel we are progressing, or think we aren’t progressing fast enough, but when you can look up the first time you did a specific workout, “FRAN” for example, compared to the most recent you can see not only see your progress, but track it as well. Tracking your progress also allows us to set realistic and planned expectations, it can keep us focused, and determined.

There are a couple different ways to keep track of your progress. You can always keep track using your own notebook, bringing it along with you in your bag and writing down each and every day’s workouts. You can also use the website, www.oregoncrossfit.com.
