Greetings from snowy Crested Butte!
This morning while my dog Athena and I were doing our favorite trail run loop - Caves up to Wallrod cut-off, back down to Cement Creek, it occurred to me just how much things have changed in the last couple of weeks since we were last up there. The air is cold and humid, the leaves are vibrant yellow, and the trail has a nice layer of fallen leaves coating the ground. I notice that the mountain tops all have snow on them while the gray sky is determined to shut out the sun out at all costs. In this moment i'm thrilled that I thought to bring my rain shell as it protects me from the frigid breeze on this perfect Fall day.
Fall - A Time for Change
The change of seasons does a couple of things; One, it gets us thinking about how we're going to get our next workout in when it's raining and snowing (and then raining some more), and two, it gets us thinking about the next season of fun at CBMR, winter ski passes and the majestic beauty of CB's iconic peaks in the wintertime.
What's great about this time of year is that we can change our thought process - by thinking about working 'IN' to workout. Fall forces us inside more than we like, but we still have the motivation and determination to want to stay in shape and feel good about the level of movement and activity we are getting. Getting into the gym and doing cardio and strength training can not only help keep us in great running and biking shape during the off season, but it can also help condition us for skiing and snowboarding, as well as many other favorite winter sports.
Thinking about working 'IN' the gym is fun! If you do not agree or are a little bored with your typical exercises, check out the posters at the gym for new ideas, do some research online, or meet with a personal trainer at CB South Fitness who will create an awesome workout, and help you get maximum results for your favorite activities.
The Crested Butte Way
I have had two new members come to me in the last week who want to workout in the gym to keep fit for biking during the off-season. They love mountain biking more than anything, and they are already thinking about next season. If I've had two people in a week approach me with the same goal in mind, I am willing to bet there are many more who think similarly. Let CB South Fitness help the community stay strong year round so that we always feel confident in whatever our favorite sports may be!
