New Year, New Reads

I put this list out before Christmas on Instagram, but I thought I’d capture it here. Whilst there’s plenty of books out there in the CrossFit sphere (I’ll save those for another post) there’s something more relatable about reading a book by someone from the UK community.

β€œπ˜šπ˜΅π˜’π˜³π˜΅ 𝘠𝘰𝘢𝘳 𝘌𝘯𝘨π˜ͺπ˜―π˜¦π˜΄β€ –Β @bicepslikebriggs ⁣
The Engine from England has been at the pinnacle of the sport of fitness for longer than many have even heard of CrossFit. Sam reflects on her own journey; from juggling training with a full time job, to making her way to her first (& far from last) Games in 2010. When you’re used to seeing someone pop up on every Netflix documentary, it can be easy to forget where they’ve come from & the challenges they’ve faced.⁣

Many will be familiar with Zack’s journey from overweight kid to the β€œUK’s fittest Man”. Zack takes us through this story but alongside guidance on how you can use the SWOS program to set the right goals & be better prepared to take on the inevitable challenges.

Ollie provides examples & ideas, drawing from some of the best minds in personal development, in handy bite size daily chunks. A collection of β€œMorning Ramblings” Ollie wrote the book by Building the Chain and offers a wealth of ideas for how you can build yours towards any goal. ⁣

The ink is only just dry on this from Josh so I’ve only read a handful of chapters, but it’s a good one so far. Another book with short digestible chapters that reminds you that the traits & mindset we develop in the gym can help us β€œmove the needle” in all aspects of life.
