FINISH WHAT YOU STARTED
---
Just one more week of the 2017 @crossfitgames Open to go. Every year it baffles me when I see so called 'competitors' throw in the towel so close to the end. The list of excuses continues to grow by the day...'I'm not good enough', 'I'm not happy with my place on the leaderboard', 'this workout is stupid', 'I haven't practiced this movement enough so what's the point'. If you've read this far, I'm sure you've heard it too
---
The realism is this: no other sport allows you to do 'the test' as many times as you want until you get the best score possible. There are no opponents, so essentially you are in complete control of all the variables. Statistical data from past years pretty much tells us which movement are going to come up, and what capacities needs to be developed if you want to make it to the next stage. Understand that this is a TEST, and a test is designed to provide an indication of where you are at NOW
---
To be a competitor, you need to OBSESS about what you do. Seek to understand WHY you got the score that you did, and put the measures in place to make sure it DOES NOT HAPPEN again.
---
Be strong, develop capacity and learn how to deal with pain. More importantly, MOVE WELL and develop EFFICIENCY with each and every movement in as many combinations as possible. Do not throw more volume and intensity at the problem, because the likelihood is that you will only get worse (same or worse score on 17.4??)
---
Be a champion, stay the course and FINISH what you started!
Sadly The Open is coming to an end! What better way to close this chapter than celebrating with the CSTL family.
-
This weekend following classes we are inviting you to stick around (or come back for 11:30) for food and drinks! We will have a voting booth set up for you to show some love to your fellow athletes and we will be handing out a few prizes.
-
(HINT: Nike shoes may be a prize)
-
All you have to do is show up and complete 17.5 this Saturday during class to be eligible. Let's make this weekend the biggest turn out yet!

Shingo (@shingomoromasa ) was born in Japan and began his athletic career at young age. He became a successful gymnast early in life, taking part and winning many regional competitions. This initial interest as a gymnast led him to pursue a career as a stuntman landing roles in both movies and television shows whilst also maintaining a career with Disney!
-
Consistency with training and performance lead Shingo to join an American Football team where he had a chance to test his athleticism and further progress his understanding of Strength and Conditioning beyond the world of gymnastics. This passion took over and soon Shingo moved to America to pursue his athletic career.
-
During his time in America Shingo had the opportunity to spend some time at the OPEX headquarters in Pheonix, Arizona. Under the tutelage of James Fitzgerald and Danny Nicholls, he developed a strong desire to become a coach and help others pursue their dreams.
-
Shingo made the move to Hong Kong to take his career to the next level. Bringing with him all the charm and kindness in the world he has an attitude that is not only infectious to his clients, but also his colleagues.
-
Whether you see Shingo lifting in the gym, coaching clients, handstand walking down the stairwell or practicing gymnastics in Victoria Park with @shaping_quality_movement, you will always find him with an ear to ear smile!
Hands up if you guessed 17.4 would be a repeat! Head coach Ed called it early in the week, and has put together some pointers for you to smash out the 16.4 repeat! Click the link in bio 📽

While the excitement is still high in the last few weeks of the Open, make sure you're taking the time to listen to your body...Arrive to class a few minutes early or stay a few minutes late to give your muscles a little extra love!
Originally from Scotland where she coached gymnastics to children, Louise (@louisedunncoaching)  moved to Guernsey, Channel Islands. As a way to improve her own health, strength and ultimately her confidence, she turned to strength and conditioning training - Changing the direction of her coaching. She also began to develop more of an understanding of the mind and body and how closely they are aligned. If you move better, you will feel better!
-
Louise provides clients with the tools that allow them to take control of their health (mind and body) and incorporate strategies into their daily lives. The key is to work with your body, not against it and having fun whilst doing so! Seeing people surpass milestones and overcome perceived barriers are what fuels her passion for coaching. By promoting strength both physically and mentally, we are empowered to reach our goals.
-
Driven to develop her knowledge as a coach and further build her career, she craved a new environment. Hong Kong, being a city that is so transient, rich in culture and diverse, was the perfect match.
Thrusters coming up in the open? Give yourself the best chance to crush whatever @thedavecastro throws our way these next 2 weeks by opening up your hips and getting comfortable in the squat position.

Here is a snippet of our squat routine, adapted from Ido Portal’s squat clinic. Head to our YouTube channel for more exercise videos!
