It all started from a friend, a colleague, a peer . . .
From being bored with the same routine, from plateauing time and time again . . .
I wanted to get healthy, I wanted people around me who cared . . .

They called it constantly varied, functional movements, executed at high intensity . . .

It's about taking the first step -

It's called CrossFit and I friggin' love it!

One Last Rep

It always feels like one last rep can be done.  In the CrossFit season when every second counts, every rep can be performed with such sheer determination that it is inspiring for anyone to watch.

I guess I can admit that I am one of the lucky people when it comes to my experience with CrossFit.  I get to instruct such a wide variety of athletes (which I may have mentioned come from all different walks of life) and there are many common qualities that I see, but one which warrants special attention.


Firmness of purpose; resoluteness.

As we look to finish the CrossFit Games Opens, of which there are only two more workouts, we must finish strong and with purpose.  Our hands may be beaten, but our spirits are not.  We have seen great accomplishments so far, with personal records on Snatches to people accomplishing movements for the first time that they have never done before.

We cannot foresee what is to come, we can only prepare through practice and maintain a steadfast purpose of finishing what we started.  In some cases it can just be a workout, in others, the competition that you may have just started.

If you want to capture the moment of when you kept going, look no further, chalk-ridden hands clinging to a bar, the tape no longer able to stick to the skin around your wrists, all the while trying to stay on the bar for all 9 reps was familiar to all of you when it came to those Toes to Bar in this past workout.

I am 100% sure, this CrossFit Games season will bring us many new, inspiring stories of one last rep and one last second where something truly amazing occurred and was captured perfectly.

Looking to get that one last rep.
