Mental Toughness: Entering the Pain Cave

Join us October 24 from 6pm-7:30pm for Mental Toughness: Entering the Pain Cave, a presentation by Dr. Ron Gellis, MA, PhD, and three-times CrossFit Games competitor.


Have you ever felt disappointed in yourself after a workout, knowing you could have pushed a little harder, rested a little less? Do you let doubt and uncertainty stop you from establishing numbers you know are achievable? Does a fear of failure inhibit your effort? Probably. Because humans are prone to copping out when things get uncomfortable. Although the scope of our potential is enormous, most of us barely scratch the surface of our abilities.

Learn how to recognize, excavate, and harness your capacity with our very own Dr. Ron Gellis. Dr. Gellis, among other things, specializes in Sports Psychology, and is an expert in methods of Mental preparedness for athletes. He has helped special-ops and special forces personnel  prepare for the challenges of military training. He has helped college, professional, and olympic athletes past mental health challenges which threatened to undermine their success. He used these methods himself to become a three-times CrossFit Games athlete, and now he wants to share his approach with his fellow athletes at CrossFit Forest and the CrossFit community at large.
