Why did you start doing Crossfit?
Was it because you wanted bigger guns? Was it to look more intimidating in a muscle shirt? Maybe to fit in to that dress you wore that one time? Perhaps you’re getting married soon, and you want to look good for that special day. For the record, there’s nothing wrong with any of those reasons. A lot of peoples’ motivations for working out are aesthetically driven.
Is that all there is to it though? Have any of you noticed that the longer you do Crossfit, the more stuff you can do? Maybe that random hike you did doesn’t feel as tough today as it did pre-Crossfit. Perhaps having to move your child in and out of a car seat is more manageable today. That first day of skiing or snowboarding of the season doesn’t leave you feeling sore anymore; you’re already in shape for it! The point is, whether it’s our original reason or not, we quickly realize that the ever changing workouts that we do in our gym prepare us for whatever we want to do today. We are ready to do stuff. I want to hike a 14’er this weekend. Sweet, let’s go. I want to run a half-marathon. Whatever, let’s give it a try. My buddies want me to play some basketball this weekend. 3-2-1 go. I’m ready.
One of the tenets of Crossfit is that we apply ourselves to different sports to (1) continually challenge ourselves, but, more importantly, (2) have fun. So, while waiting for your .22’s to turn into cannons, ask yourself:
What do I want to do today?
