A Former Coach Returns to CrossFit MouseTrap

Every Athlete needs a coach.  

That’s why the coaches at CrossFit MouseTrap are so great.  They coach me up as the athlete I am that day, not the athlete I was yesterday or the athlete I may be tomorrow.  I’ve been back working out consistently for a while and have seen some progress on my journey to the best, fittest, healthiest version of myself.  The movements that had given me a lot of trouble at the beginning are now giving me a little less trouble.  I’m less worried about finishing my workouts, and more focused on how fast I’ll get them done.  I quit worrying about whether or not I can lift the weight, and spend way more time thinking about how much I’m going to lift this time.

Next up: nutrition. Yep. I know. I put on weight. Trust me I know. I have piles of clothes in my closet that don’t fit anymore, but I keep them around because I have every intention of wearing them again.  But my current reality is that I need a little help. I know I should choose an apple over a slice of pizza. I know eating nutrition-packed salads is better than eating Chinese food (Allen’s favorite go-to meal every Friday night). But the reality is that what we should be doing and what we are actually doing are two different things.  

MouseTrap Fitness is a CrossFit gym near Disney and near the Convention Center after all.  We are surrounded by really good restaurants. A lot of really good restaurants!  Eating out and eating unhealthy has unfortunately become part of our nutrition routine.  Sunday Fundays, Saturday night out, and fast-food to celebrate the latest occasion add up to a pile of clothes that simply don’t fit anymore.

Allen and I are losing the nutrition battle and in order to meet our health, wellness, and fitness goals, we’re going to need some help. So rather than wallow in my sorrows, we are going to do something about it. We are calling in the coach that can help supplement our workouts with sound, effective, inspirational, and motivational nutrition advice.   

“Don’t call it a come back.  I’ve been here for years.’’

We are excited to announce that Coach Sam Ayala is rejoining the CrossFit MouseTrap coaching ranks. He will be leading our upcoming 6-Week Fat Loss Challenge here at MouseTrap Fitness.  

Some things were really clear when we joined the CrossFit MouseTrap community:  

  1. The community is awesome.
  2. The coaching is awesome.
  3. We miss Sam as a coach.

And although our classes aren’t yet full enough to bring Coach Sam on as a CrossFit coach, we are thrilled to get a daily dose of Coach Sam motivating us to reach our goals every day in the kitchen!  

I am most excited about the knowledge, skills, and PASSION Coach Sam brings to nutrition coaching. I have heard first testimonials from current members about amazing transformations.  (Thank you, Rajesh!!).  I have heard Coach Sam’s personal testimony about his weight loss success and his ability to make nutrition part of his regular, everyday life.  There are three things that I’m looking forward to in working with Coach Sam and in joining the Fat Loss Challenge.  

  1. Coach Sam’s enthusiasm.  You can’t be anything but excited to work with Sam and meet your goals. If I’m honest, I’m already worried because I don’t want to disappoint him! He’s going to give me that extra incentive to make better food choices.
  2. A personalized program.  Rajesh shared with us that he was Coach Sam’s very first vegetarian client. Coach Sam wasn’t scared of the challenge, instead he was pumped because he got to figure out how to help Rajesh hit his goals while observing those dietary restrictions. Coach Sam created a customized plan just for him! We aren’t cookie-cutter people, so we need more than cookie-cutter nutrition planning.
  3. The more knowledge you have, the simpler you make things for others.  I know that Coach Sam knows his stuff because he makes things really easy for us to understand. I know the best coaching I get is made up of simple, repeatable tasks that I can do over and over again. If I wanted to spend all day looking up hard to spell words in order to lose weight, I would just go to a doctor. I’m not interested in that at all.

Bottom Line again.

Fat Loss Challenge powered by Coach Sam

MouseTrap Fitness is a CrossFit gym near Disney, the Convention Center, and more restaurants than I can count. It can feel like the whole world is conspiring against us to become the fittest and healthiest versions of ourselves. I need a nutrition coach and maybe you do too. It’ll be a fun challenge! I hope you’ll consider joining the fun as Allen and I work to fit into those clothes again.
