What Motivates You: Your Ego or Your Purpose?  – CrossFit Invictus

Motivation is an interesting thing and the crux of many aspiring athletes and struggling clients. It doesn’t seem to matter if the goal is standing on a podium or losing a few postpartum pounds, motivation that lasts becomes an increasingly difficult challenge for many people. Motivation is not to be confused with willpower. Any hopeful athlete can endure a single, grueling, nausea-inducing training session and anyone who wants a six-pack can resist their sweet tooth for a day. But when things get difficult and temptation presents itself, are you able to stay motivated and on the path to achieving your goals? If you’ve been unsuccessful thus far, it’s possible that it’s because your motivation has been coming from the wrong place.

As a coach, I’ve observed that there are two primary types of people, those who are motivated primarily by their ego and those who are motivated by their purpose. The ego is the illusion of the self. Some define it as the approval-seeking social mask worn by many people. It’s the part of you that defines itself separate from all others and cares about superficial things such as how many “likes” your latest social media post has received. Many athletes compete and train from this place and many clients work towards their goals from this place as well. They chase goals for the external validation it will bring their ego. Unfortunately, I haven’t observed this to be a strategy that leads to long-term success. Ego-driven athletes tend to be the ones that find the least amount of joy in what they do. They also tend to have trouble getting “back in the saddle” and staying focused after a loss, failure, or when they encounter an obstacle. Instead of identifying the lessons that could be learned, they spend most of their energy comparing themselves to others and blaming things outside of their control for their shortcomings. See the following list of characteristics, does this sound like anyone you know?

Characteristics of an Ego-driven Athlete:

  • Competes to beat other people and show that they are “better” than everyone else.

  • Feels the need to prove something to their friends, coaches, parents, etc.

  • Enjoys competition only if they win.

  • Views failures as setbacks or disasters and likes to blame others.

  • Feels envy, jealousy, or anger when others are successful.

  • Believes athletic abilities are a key component of their identity and self-worth.

  • Most, if not all, actions are self-serving and selfish in nature.

  • Tends to be narcissistic, egocentric, and lacks selflessness.

  • Values significance, approval of others, and external motivators above all else.

The ego-driven person has mistaken what they have or what they do for their own identity. You can see that the individual motivated by their ego lives by a set of rules that makes it very difficult to experience joy or happiness as they work towards a given goal. In my experience, I’ve seen the highest rates of burnout from people who pursue their goals from this place. This is not to say they can’t achieve some level of success, but for many ego-driven people, they struggle to maintain the drive needed to continually succeed.

Interestingly enough, the individuals that are motivated by purpose tend to stay motivated effortlessly while enjoying the process far more than their ego-driven counterparts. Purpose can be defined as the deeper reason, or the “Why”, that drives you to pursue any goal. An individual driven by purpose behaves very differently. They tend to be less concerned with things like their placement on the leaderboard or the balance in their bank account. Yet, these individuals are often just as successful (as defined by conventional terms), if not more so, than those who are driven from ego. Instead of being misled by a self-serving ego, they are motivated to act by a greater purpose in their life which, most can agree, is far more powerful.

Characteristics of a Purpose-driven Athlete:

  • Competes against their self in the pursuit of self-improvement.

  • Feels totally self-confident and doesn’t need external validation for their efforts.

  • Enjoys competition without regard to the outcome.

  • Views failures and setbacks as opportunities to learn and grow.

  • Feels genuine joy and happiness when others are successful.

  • Understands that their athletic abilities are impermanent and not a measure of self-worth or their identity.

  • Displays selflessness and a desire to help serve others in their journey.

  • Values personal growth, contribution to others, and intrinsic motivators.

Sometimes the outcomes and results may look similar at first glance, but you will most likely find that the purpose-driven individual is far happier and satisfied with their progress and achievements than the ego-driven athlete. For example, if the only way you could ever be happy with yourself as an athlete is to win the CrossFit Games, you’ve just created a difficult, almost impossible, and statistically unlikely set of requirements in order to be happy. However, if you simply find joy in the process of becoming the best athlete you are capable of becoming and attaining mastery of various athletic skills, you are setting yourself up for success on many levels. There’s no need to achieve complete ego-transcendance to experience but if you want to be more successful in any goal you pursuing, take some time for yourself to clarify your purpose or your “Why”. Remember, a bigger “Why” always results in an easier “How”.

How caffeine can affect your workout By SFH Stronger.Faster.Healthier.

It’s not uncommon to need a little extra boost to get to the gym, especially after a long day or an early morning. Most people get their daily energy enhancement with a caffeinated cup of coffee. Is that the best option for people who are are about to hit the gym, though?

The pros and cons of caffeine before exercise has long been debated. But is the boost from caffeine enough to sustain you through an entire fitness regimen? Here’s what you need to know about how a cup of Joe can affect your workout:

Caffeine can improve circulation
A Japanese study presented at the American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions in 2013 stated that just a single cup of coffee can make your small blood vessels work more efficiently. Study participants who drank a cup of caffeinated coffee had a 30 percent increase in blood flow after just 75 minutes. Increased circulation can not only give you more stamina during your workout, but it also gets more oxygen to your muscles, keeping them from tiring out too quickly.

Caffeine can increase testosterone
After a workout, your cortisol levels may be a bit out of whack, as the stress might elevate these levels. Testosterone balances these levels back out. According to a study published in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism, consuming caffeine in an effort to increase your testosterone levels after a workout can kickstart protein synthesis, which improves your muscle growth.

Caffeine can burn fat
While sitting on the couch and drinking a cup of coffee won’t burn fat for you, it can help kickstart your weight loss or keep you from gaining weight in fat. This is if you combine it with a healthy diet and exercise. According to the Mayo Clinic, this is because caffeine can stimulate thermogenesis, thus burning calories. It can also suppress your appetite, keeping you from overeating.

How much caffeine is needed?
There is such a thing as overdoing it when it comes to your caffeine intake, especially during a workout. Men’s Fitness states that high doses of caffeine can alter your coordination, This is especially detrimental to athletes who rely on their hand-eye coordination. Caffeine is also a diuretic, meaning it can dehydrate you when you exercise.

So how do you know if you’re consuming too much caffeine before you hit the field or gym? Caffeine affects everyone differently, so it’s important to realize your individual tolerance before you begin trying to drink caffeine as a workout booster. Shape suggests new caffeine users start at 100mg before a workout and slowly work their way up to higher doses. Here are some general caffeine doses for reference:

A shot of espresso: 75mg.
A 12-ounce cup of coffee: 200mg.
An 8-ounce cup of black tea: 50mg.
An energy drink: 50-100mg.
A can of cola: 29mg.

The famous Stanley Sloan.

The famous Stanley Sloan.

Verve, this week on the Athlete Highlight we are featuring the one and only Stanley Sloan. Stan is currently a member at CrossFit Verve and is going through our internship program. Stan is very dedicated and it pays off. Take some time out of your Wednesday and read about this great man!

Stafford County, VA


Electrical Engineer (Oil & Gas)

What do you like to do in your free time?
Camping, hiking, going out to eat and just recently, mountain biking.

How long have you been a member at CrossFit Verve?
3 yrs.

What is your background in sports and fitness?
Football and wrestling in high school.  Ultimate Frisbee in college.

What changes have you seen in your body, health and fitness since starting CrossFit?
Since starting CrossFit, I’ve lost 40lbs and over 10% body fat.  I can definitely say that I’m the strongest and fittest I’ve ever been, including high school and college.

Has CrossFit influenced your life outside of the gym? If so, how?
Yes, definitely.  It’s given me the confidence in my physical ability to test my fitness outside of the gym.  Before joining Verve, I would’ve never attempted hiking a 14-er, running a Spartan Race or a half marathon.

What’s your favorite benchmark workout?
I’d have to say it’s a tie between Nancy & Elizabeth.

Any advice for someone just starting?
Be patient.  It’s easy to get frustrated and discouraged when you start out, and you can’t do a Double Under or Pull-up etc…  Learn the technique, put in the work, try to get one more rep than you did last time and I guarantee those movements you don’t have right now will happen.

I’ve had a lot of conversations lately with members experiencing elbow pain and what causes it. Given the amount of pulling we do with our workouts, this type of pain is very common.  I’ve had two bad flareups with elbow pain in the 8+ years I’ve been doing CrossFit.  Below is an article we posted a while back about what causes elbow pain and some ways you can fix it.  I personally swear by the BandIT forearm band.  I’ve lent mine to a few people to use, and if you would like to try it to see how it works, ask me, Eric, and I’ll lend you mine.  Below is an article that addresses what causes the flare ups and how to fix it.  The article is long so scroll to the bottom for the exercises and recommendations on how to fix those nagging elbows.  Click HERE to read the article on Box Life Magazine’s site. 

You’ve probably realized (or are in the process of realizing) that any part of the body can come under some serious strain in the box, especially if form is bad and flexibility is poor. The elbows are no exception to this rule. In fact elbow tendonitis is a very common ailment that affects huge swaths of the population—not just CrossFitters (although it’s very common amongst box-goers). In fact, the nagging pain from elbow tendonitis is more commonly known as tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis, sharp pain at the outside aspect of the elbow over the bone), which is ironic given that fewer than 5% of patients with this condition actually play tennis.

What exactly is elbow tendonitis?
Essentially, tendonitis refers to the inflammation of the tendons as they insert on the related bone. The suffix “–itis” means inflammation and is usually paired with the associated body part—so think Achilles tendonitis, etc. Tendons are elastic ropes in our body that connect muscles to bone and absorb a lot of stress. Now inflammation is a normal process in our bodies, and we have all experienced the pain, swelling, redness and warmth that comes with an acute inflammation response. This inflammation response is supposed to be fast and direct, not extended. Unfortunately, the tendons have very poor blood flow, which can result in failed healing and an inflammation response that becomes chronic or even systemic, making it incredibly difficult to manage and annoyingly painful.

Common symptoms include:

  • Recurring pain on the outside of your upper forearm, just below the bend of the elbow, is the most frequent sign of the injury.
  • Pain may also be felt down your arm towards the wrist.
  • Feeling pain when lifting or bending the arm.
  • Pain when performing basic actions such writing, or when gripping small objects like a pen is also a possible symptom.
  • Pain when twisting your forearm – for example, when turning a door handle also can be lateral epicondylitis , or difficulty extending your forearm fully.
  • Pain can last from anywhere between 3-12 weeks.

What causes it?
Elbow tendonitis is classified as a repetitive strain injury and is actually caused by overuse of the wrist despite the pain being felt in the elbow. But because the muscles that control wrist extension and flexion run along the forearm (and underarm) and connect around the elbow joint, repeated strain on the wrist can lead to elbow tendonitis, which is why it is a frequent problem for professional tennis players—hence the name (you’ll never look at a tennis racket the same way again). It’s also a common among people who are brand new to certain sports (like CrossFit) and are eager to attack it with full gusto. Unfortunately, the body (including the joints and tendons) is not conditioned to weather the onset of new and sudden—and often times thousands of repetitions of—movement thereby causing irritation to the supporting tendons. Repetitive movements such as high volume pull-ups, push-ups (Murph anyone?), gardening work and even typing for most of the day can lead to tendonitis—not to mention ignoring the early warning signs (tenderness, swelling and soreness) and ‘playing through the pain’. Furthermore, previous injuries such as sprains can lead to tendonitis, and joints that have been previously injured are more susceptible to develop the condition. A diet that is filled with sugar, grains, trans fats, alcohol, Omega-6 fatty acids, dairy, MSG, and processed foods is inflammatory, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that consuming these types of food in high quantity leads to inflammation. A lack of balance in one’s diet that is low in essential nutrients including vitamin c, magnesium, and quality protein (i.e. lean and grass-fed) can also increase the likelihood of someone developing tendonitis.

How can I treat it/reduce my chances of getting it?
Generally speaking, if symptoms persist for longer than four weeks more serious intervention is needed and a visit to the physical therapist may be in order. But there are a few ways that you can ace tennis elbow on your own, before it becomes a more troubling issue:

1. Check your technique. If the pain is sport or activity-specific, you must improve your technique or ergonomic setup. Consult your coach to ensure that you are performing each movement at the box in the right way.

2. Stretch. Perform gentle stretching to the forearm musculature. These stretches should be performed in a PAIN-FREE manner, which is to say that you should feel a slight stretch or pull along the muscles, but elbow pain should not be present.

a. Wrist Flexor Stretch:
i.    Extend your arm in front of you with your palm up.
ii.   Bend your wrist, pointing your hand towards the floor.
iii.  With your other hand, gently bend your wrist further until you feel a mild to moderate stretch in your forearm.
iv.   Hold for at least 15 to 30 seconds. Repeat 2 to 4 times.

b. Wrist Extensor Stretch:
i. Repeat steps 1 to 4 of the stretch above, but begin with your extended hand palm down.

c. Voodoo Floss:
i. Wrap elbow with voodoo floss (or mobility bands) across the joint and add tension.
ii. Turn your palm down and straighten your elbow.
iii. After 30 seconds to a minute release the band.
Check out this video of Kelly Starrett voodoo flossing some poor soul’s elbow.

3. Clean up your diet. As I mentioned above, you want to make sure that you limit the amount of inflammatory foods you consume to the odd treat now and again, and keep the essential nutrients and good quality lean meats coming. Just another reason to give paleo a go.
4. Don’t play through the pain. You’ll know when something feels off. Sure, our muscles and joints get sore all the time, but your body will let you know if something just doesn’t feel right, so there’s no point in forcing the issue just to complete a workout. Remember, we want to come back to fight another day, so if this means dropping the weight, adding a band to the pull-ups or swapping out arm-intensive exercises for something else, so be it.
5. Use a rubber flex-bar. The New York Times ran a story back in 2009 detailing the results of a study that utilized an 8-inch, low tech rubber bar on patents with chronic, debilitating elbow pain. They had two groups – a control group doing regular physical therapy (PT) and a second group that did PT and used the rubber flex-bar therapy technique.  After about 8 weeks, the trial was halted as those using the flex-bar were effectively cured, reporting an 81 percent improvement in their elbow pain and a 72 percent improvement in strength.
6. Get deep tissue work or a massage to help improve blood flow. Doing so will help break up scar tissue to facilitate healing when the issue is new within the first six weeks. At this point, seeing a PT or a sports massage professional is probably a good idea.

Does Benching give you shoulder pain? Here is a great article from Box Magazine on why the Floor Press may be the place for you to be!

“CrossFit has a love-hate relationship with the bench press. Most coaches admit that it’s one of the best developers of upper-body pushing strength, but the use of the bench and the prevalence of shoulder injuries in lifelong benchers makes it seem wise to avoid. And from a practical standpoint, bench pressing is tough to program because few boxes want to invest the money or floor space on a half-dozen benches. The solution? Enter the floor press. 

A brute-strength old-school lift that predates the bench press, the floor press combines the massive recruitment of upper-body muscle fibers with a highly functional movement pattern and a range of motion that makes it much healthier for your shoulders than a traditional bench. 

The Setup

If you don’t have access to a rack or if the lowest holes on your rack are still too high, place a loaded barbell on the ground, scoot under it and glute-bridge it into your hands. If you do have access to a power rack, set the J-cups to about 18 inches off the floor and place the loaded barbell onto them. Get on the floor and line the bar up so that it’s at eye level. Once situated, place your hands on the bar where the knurling rings are (or a bit wider if you have long arms). Grasp the bar deep in the web of flesh between your fingers and thumb and wrap your thumbs completely around it. 

Under the Bar

Move your shoulder blades together and downward (imagine trying to put them in your back pockets). If the bar is in a rack, slide it off the J-cups so you can maintain this position with your scapulae. (If you can have someone give you a lift off, even better.) Tuck your elbows close to your sides — the angle between your upper arms and your torso should never be greater than 45 degrees. Take and hold a deep breath, tighten the muscles in your abs and glutes and, if the bar is in a rack, slowly bring it down. As it descends, imagine rowing the bar to help activate your lats and improve stability.

Off the Bottom

Let your upper arms make full contact with the floor and come to a complete stop. Don’t crash your elbows into the floor and try to bounce the bar the way you might on a bench press. Generating power from a dead stop is the biggest challenge of the floor press, but it’s also the key to its benefits. After a beat during which the bar has been completely still, tighten your core, drive your soles or the backs of your heels into the floor and press the weight to full lockout. When you’ve completed the last rep, lower the weight until your upper arms land on the floor, then rock the weight forward so the bar lands over your hip crease. If you used a rack, lean the bar back until it rests in the J-cups.”

Congratulations to the newlyweds - Stephanie and Adam!!! We are incredibly excited to watch you and your journey together now!

Congratulations to the newlyweds – Stephanie and Adam!!! We are incredibly excited to watch you and your journey together now!


We have a ton of new faces in the crowd and we want to make sure you are aware of all classes that Verve has to offer.  A class that we offer is Verve Sprint!  Here is a brief explanation of what the class is and hopefully answer any questions you may have.

Verve Sprint is a class designed for athletes who want the high-intensity, constantly-varied, functional movements of CrossFit but don’t share the same excitement as some about the complex barbell movements. Classes will include body weight movements, rowing, running, jumping/plyometrics, medicine balls, kettlebells, dumbbells, and whatever other things we can come up with, in longer metcon formats. Verve Sprint is still CrossFit and we will continue to develop the 10 general physical skills: Cardiovascular Respiratory Endurance, Stamina, Strength, Flexibility, Power, Speed, Coordination, Agility, Balance, and Accuracy, there will simply be limited barbell involvement. 
What will a Verve Sprint class look like? 
The classes are 45 minutes long and will include a warm-up, movement review, and an intense workout ranging from 15-30 minutes.
Who would be interested in Verve Sprint?  
– Any experienced CrossFitter that has a preference for the the longer, higher-intensity workouts on a more regular basis
-Those new to the CrossFit methodologies looking for some consistency in the foundational movements
-Anyone, veteran or new, that cherry picks those heavy lifting days or Olympic lifting days and just wants to sweat
When will Verve Sprint be offered? 
MondayFriday at 5:45am, MondayThursday at 5:15pm and 6:15pm.  Verve Sprint will be taking the place of our current Skilz class.
-Access to unlimited WODs, open gym times, and unlimited Sprint = current Verve membership + $15 per month 
-Access to unlimited Sprint only (no WODs and no open gym) = $80 per month
Please email for questions regarding couple’s membership pricing and/ or any additional pricing questions.
What if I am not a Verve member and I have never done CrossFit before but I want to do Verve Sprint?  
No problem at all!  First, just to ensure you are familiar with the movements, we will schedule a 1 hour movement review and assessment session with you to prepare you for the workouts.  After that session is completed, you can start a Verve Sprint Only membership for $80/month for unlimited Verve Sprint classes.
Please email for questions regarding the set-up, design, and structure of the new Sprint classes.


  • The only class being hosted at Verve on Saturday is at 7am.  If you would like to workout outside of that time, checkout the available times on the sign up sheet at the front desk.

It’s time to do Battle!!


Everyday Warrior is a non-profit organization that is near and dear to Verve’s heart. It was founded with the primary mission to inspire, empower, and financially support individuals in the CrossFit community who have been diagnosed with cancer and are currently undergoing treatment.

We have had several members very personally involved with the organization. From being close friends with Brittany Gill, the founder of Everyday Warrior, who unfortunately lost her battle with cancer. To a Verve member being a Featured Warrior and receiving support throughout her continued battle with cancer. Since Everyday Warrior was brought to Verve’s attention, we have made it a goal to be as supportive of such an amazing cause as we possibly can be.

Everyday Warrior raises money through online competitions. The 2016 Battle Series starts October 24th. 

“The Battle Series is a winner-take-all, four-week, online workout and fundraising competition. Individuals will complete one workout per week beginning Monday, October 24th.”

Verve will be hosting these workouts on Fridays as the WOD. If you are already an avid partaker in the Friday WOD, then get signed up and workout for a cause. The Battle Series has 5 divisions of competition: RX, Scaled, Masters, Masters Scaled, and Teen. That’s 5 reasons why there is no excuse not to participate. Registration is already open, click here to get signed up and to learn more about Everyday Warrior. No one fights alone.
