Who is CrossFit For?

Tuesday 3.17.15

Words from Sara:

Every week during the Opens this year, we’ll share an idea on the blog that may help you perform your best—and have a great time doing so—during the Open workouts. For Week 4, we want to talk about Being Smart.
We can look around at our lives and see signs and patterns that, if we’re smart, can hint at the path our lives are bound to take. Whether “positive” or “negative,” the choices we repeatedly make can paint a fairly clear picture of what’s to come for us.
If we educate ourselves about what healthy eating looks like and then actually eat that way, then eventually we can expect to see improved health. If we deceive or lie to our loved ones, then eventually we can expect to see conflict in our relationships. If we save a little bit of every paycheck, then eventually we can expect to see financial wealth. Being “smart” means recognizing how your behaviors influence your life outcomes, and then adjusting the behaviors in order to change outcomes (if different outcomes are desired).
If you really care about getting better at double unders, or pull-ups, or split jerks, or any type of movement that you see in Craic programming (or in the Open workouts), ask yourself: are you being smart about your approach to improving them? Are you just hoping you’ll get better with time or avoiding the things you don’t like, or are you seeking advice from the coaches and putting in extra practice before and after class? Are you overloading yourself, working out despite undue fatigue and pain, trying to do too much in too little time? Are you giving yourself permission to fail and to make mistakes, understanding that it’s all just a part of learning?
Everybody is smart when they take a moment to notice what their life outcomes are telling them about their behaviors. This week, be especially smart when it comes to listening to your body.

Words from  Anthony about his experience with training and competing in the Crash B’s

Glitter and Pain

Your mother made a “Go Anthony” sign with glitter all around the edges. Your father survived two tumors and is here today. You are sure that your sister is on her feet cheering. There are many people from your gym in the stands lending you their support. You hear nothing except your coach giving you instructions. You want to do exactly what he tells you but the body won’t cooperate. Everything you did in order to get you to this moment flashes through your mind. You think about all that you endured during those early morning workouts. You want to win but you see that you are slipping away from getting on the podium. You want to go faster but your heart is beating in your throat and it is hard to breathe. You are digging as deep as you can but the pain in your legs is excruciating. You can barely move but you have to bang out a few more strokes and finish this race. Then it is over. I hear people talking and yelling but my heart has moved from my throat to pounding in my ears. The voices around me are muffled and unfamiliar. The screen says I finished in 4th place. There will be no hammer, no medal and no PR, but that does matter because I faced fear and self doubt. I wanted to quit two months ago but I forged ahead. I trained like a dog and took my body and mind to a place I never thought existed. The journey is over but the rewards will last forever.

Here is a video of the end of his journey…
