Advice for Our New Friends from Our Current Family
We have people coming into the box every day curious about what we do here. They ask questions about joining and most of them tell us how they are intimidated/scared/not fit enough. The list goes on and on… So, we asked our members what advice they would give to someone just joining JonesN4 CrossFit. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
What advice would you give to someone just joining JonesN4 CrossFit?
You will fall. You will fail. But, you will have your entire JN4CF family right there helping you up and showing how to do it better the next time!

Take your time and breathe… Yeah, it can be a little intimidating but know that we all started somewhere and put in the work and effort.Things will change when you are ready to push yourself out of your comfort zone. Never hesitate to talk to your coaches because they are amazing and truly give unselfishly to benefit others. Set a goal (no matter how small) and keep your head up. You will have days where you feel that you failed but learn from it and move forward smarter and stronger from that experience.

Trust in the process and have fun. Give yourself a break from the traditional scale-watching, calorie counting BS and just go with the flow. I promise your life will change in four months.

Listen to your coach and trust the process. And believe in yourself. Your brain is your worst enemy. I wasted months saying “I can’t do that” and getting comfortable modifying movements long after I was ready to progress to the next level. And finally, mobilize. Learn to do it when you are idle. There are so many little things you can do that will pay big dividends.

Climb out of your comfort zone. The first few months will be tricky and you will most likely get frustrated. Just keep with it.
