Reflecting on Your 2023 Journey at Trident Athletics

December 20, 20232 min read

“We must find time to stop and thank the people who make a difference in our lives.” ― John F. Kennedy

As we approach the final stretch of 2023 at Trident CrossFit, I've been thinking a lot about two powerful themes: your incredible progress and the deep gratitude we share.

🏋️‍♂️ Your Progress: A Year of Transformation Think back to your very first workout of 2023 at Trident. Can you recall the weights you lifted, the pace you maintained, and how you felt afterward? Now, let's leap to your recent sessions. It's time for a side-by-side comparison of the 'then' and 'now.'

I'm willing to bet you've seen remarkable changes. Your strength, flexibility, and balance likely surpassed your expectations. Your stamina and endurance? Sky-high! And let's not forget any weight loss or muscle gain goals you crushed along the way.

Beyond the physical, I want to highlight your mental transformation. The confidence and pride you've cultivated are just as significant as any physical milestone. Sure, reaching goals is essential, but let's not overlook the extraordinary journey you've embarked on.

🙏 Gratitude: More Than Just a Word Gratitude isn't just a nice-to-have; it's a must-have. It transforms our outlook, turning good days into great ones. I want you to know how deeply grateful I am for each one of you at Trident CrossFit. Witnessing your achievements, your determination to set new goals, and the trust you place in us as coaches is nothing short of inspiring.

As 2023 winds down, I encourage you to reflect on what you're thankful for. Feel free to share with me, or keep it close to your heart. And if you're ever in doubt, remember this: being able to take control of your health and fitness is a tremendous privilege.

🎉 Looking Ahead: Your 2024 Fitness Vision You've set a high bar in 2023, and I have no doubt you'll soar even higher in 2024. Think about the goals you want to conquer next year. Got some ideas already? I'd love to hear them! Let's make 2024 a year of new challenges and triumphs.

Thank you for your dedication, your sweat, and your smiles throughout this year. Here's to another year of growth, community, and smashing goals at Trident CrossFit!

All the best,


P.S. Let's gear up for 2024 with some fresh fitness aspirations. If you've already got goals in mind, send me an email at Chriss@tridentathleticsva.com and let's start planning together!
