"Tasty 15 and Zercher Squats"(11.30.2010)
I. “Frustration in the Gym”
As we all know, CrossFit can be fun, entertaining, and overall a good time, but on some occasions it can just be darn right frustrating. How many times have you got frustrated in the gym at yourself because someone else makes things look so easy? Well for me workoing out with some elite guys across the country over the last 6 months, can attest to some very big frustration in many aspects of fitness. We all go through this and remember you are not the only one who sucks at something. This however is the secret beauty of functional fitness and CrossFit. It means we always have something to strive for and always have a goal to work towards. This is why I love CrossFit! Without goals or aspirations in our life, what is the point of living? CrossFit challenges us everyday physically to try something new or push ourselves to the limits that we have never done before. Remember, at the end of the day, it is just CROSSFIT! You are doing something that only a small part of the world is doing everyday, so there in itself is ACCOMPLISHMENT!! Take a look at yourself before you started CrossFit. Could you honestly say you are not in the best shape of your life and have not accomplished things that you never thought you could do? I think the answer is an outstanding NO! You are all inspirations for me and make me get up in the morning, and say I have the best job in the world, and I train the best people in the world. You all make want to live as long as possible, and I thank you for it!
