Why is using WODify, or tracking in general, important? A few reasons. What makes CrossFit, and similar training protocols like our Sweat and Strong classes, so successful is the presence of tangible, measurable results sometimes on a day to day basis. The motivation this gives us is undeniable as well. Knowing what you are working for and how your training is working, or even if it is not working, is invaluable information to have every time you come in the gym.

Knowing where your success or lack there of is coming from is also important. If you are having success, knowing exactly what is working from a training standpoint is integral to maintaining your success and motivation. Of course, if you aren’t having success you want, tracking your performance data will be able to figure out what might be leading to your stagnation. If training is the issue, we can figure out why relatively quickly, and if it doesn’t seem to be the problem then we can help you understand what about your lifestyle might be holding you back.

The motivation part of it all is the most important. It is relatively “easy” to see results when we first start a new training program. Once our body gets used to what we are doing we can hit our first plateau, where results aren’t as drastic or even level off completely. This starts to affect our desire to keep working since chasing the positive results is the main driving force behind our staying on course. Tracking your results, both lifting and workouts, can help feed your motivation each and every day, while also helping contribute to all the above mentioned positive qualities.
