Just kidding.

Well, kind of…

I am sure I will see a workout on the white board I just have to do, or get wrangled into a knarly WOD and just have to suffer with some friends, plus I know when the 2018 CrossFit open comes around I will catch the bug again and sign up.

But for now, my focus is on other aspects of my life.

You, “Uhhhh, Evan where are you going with this bro?”

I apologize in advance if you are looking for a fitness or nutrition article.


During the CrossFit open I had this crazy mindset change.

Why are you doing this?

What is the purpose?

My mind was somewhere else.

Don’t get me wrong, I loved being with my CrossFit tribe and seeing them have fun and get fitter.

It was amazing to see.

If you are a part of my tribe, I am thinking about you as I write this and am smiling. You have been with us since day one and to see you grow has been AMAZING to say the least.

But for me, my focus was somewhere else…

Don’t get me wrong, fitness and health is my life. I love to workout, but…

My energy needs to be and has been focused on one thing.

My “why.” Something we preach at Forge-Rx a lot.

I found myself not worried about my workout for the day, but how I am growing as a…

Business professional

To help YOU take control of YOUR health through Forge-Rx

Korny? Yeah, maybe a little.

BUT I am so motivated to learn to how to successfully run a business AND that is what I want to spend 99% of my day on.

It is like learning the snatch. There are so many technical aspects of the movement. There is the setup, hook grip, the sweep, the catch, even the bar slam (lol).

And in business; there is marketing, accounting, building systems, the day to day and being a leader (really working on this last one).

I have had to learn SO much on the fly since Forge-Rx has been open and there is still SO much to learn.

I am not perfect, a lot of other aspects of my life have suffered, I have no balance, but this is my “Why.”

This is what I WANT RIGHT NOW.

So I ask, what do you want?

Do you want to lose 100 lbs? To get your first pull up? To gain more confidence?

Well go get it!!!!!

If you are wondering, don’t worry, I am not about to get fat, I will still train hard, but my athletic career is not of importance for me at this moment.
