What’s Your Everest?

The more I learn about leadership, mindset and the power to overcome obstacles, the more excited I get about helping others break through their personal barriers.
At CSF, adults seek us out to break through certain barriers whether that’s weight loss, regaining strength after injury or just wanting to look move and feel better.
Athletes come with a quest to improve strength, speed, athletic ability or perhaps they have been injured and need to return to their team as soon as possible.
We use fitness and exercise to inspire and transform the body, mind and spirit.
As I was listening to Eric Weihenmayer on podcast the other morning, regarding his journey to the top of Mt. Everest.  WOW, incredible story!   I wanted to share this as I thought it could IMPACT and INSPIRE  someone to go above and beyond their potential.
Eric was the first blind person to summit Everest.
Everyone has their “Own Everest,” they are trying to accomplish.  Some are kept private, while others share them with a coach with the hope of help, guidance, accountability and inspiration.
He says you’re doing 1 of 3 things in life.  You’re either:
1. Camping…doing nothing, not making any progress
2. Quitting…making up an excuse of why you can’t continue
3. Climbing…are you putting one foot in front of the other and making progress at something
Where are you?
There’s always a story behind the story so I encourage you to take just a few minutes and watch Eric’s story as he reaches the top of the world! I promise you will feel empowered!  Check it out >>> HERE <<<.
Here are some recent awesome accomplishments where our members had to dig down deep and overcome obstacles to reach their goals!
Recently Steve Testori, a CSF member attempted to summit Mt. Rainier.  As you can see from his video, the weather turned very quickly and they fell just short.  It was a very tough climb and he’ll be going back for another attempt next year!

 
Issy came to us in January.  A teenage goalie who had the desire to do what ever it took to get better and become the best version of herself.  She lost over 20lbs!! She became very athletic, and when it came down to a shoot out in the championship game…she was ready!

Like I mentioned in the beginning, we all have our own “Everest” to climb.  Big or small, it’s all important to each one of us.  This post wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the incredible journey my mom has gone through.  It was 22 years ago, that she received a liver transplant at the Cleveland Clinic.

She helps raise money and donates her time to help others who are either waiting for or who are recovering from a transplant.

 It doesn’t matter what your “Everest” is…just keep climbing!
