Get a Raise: Connections
Most of the world is working to earn more money. Even the most wealthy are continually working to earn more, even if that just means that they give more away!
At CrossFit Backward Arrow, we have seen many people that have gotten a new job or gotten better pay AFTER they started working out with us!
One of the ways that they have been able to do this is through the connections that are made in the brain after intense exercise! There is actually science and studies that support it!
In your brain, there is something that is called Brain Derived Neutrophic Factor (BDNF). BDNF is a substance to help your executive functioning (working memory, flexible thinking and self-control) and create new connections in your brain to help with learning. Topic for another blog, but decreased amounts of BDNF have been found in diseases like Parkinson's, Huntington's, Alzheimer's and Multiple Sclerosis!
Anyway, this substance is produced in your brain and the levels are significantly higher AFTER intense exercise (think CrossFit)! So, when you do CrossFit, you are improving the connections and higher level functions that are happening in your brain! This helps you with the connections that you can make at work and the problem solving that you can take on there!
In short, CrossFit actually makes you smarter!
With these new connections and abilities (think superpower), you are better able to take care of work problems and are likely to come up with creative solutions for the problems you are having there! Employers love this and are more likely to recommend that you move up the chain to solve higher level problems!
As you move up, you earn more money and are better able to enjoy the freedom that comes from an improved financial health!
So if you are looking to move up the chain at work, we want to help you to get there! Reach out to us here and let us help! Your new connections are just a few workouts away!
