Ryan, CrossFit Athlete, during Fight Gone Bad.

What is a CrossFit Athlete?

We all watched or played sports growing up.  We were inspired by athletes that seemed larger than life.  They seemed to defy gravity, have no pain, and perform without practice. Now that we're older and wiser, we know that to be a world class athlete takes more than top notch performance on game day.

An athlete is a person trained or gifted in exercises or contests involving physical agility, stamina, or strength.  By definition, CrossFitters are all athletes, which is what makes our program so damn rewarding.  Now that we have grown up and understand what it takes to be a world class athlete, we can find satisfaction by getting a taste of their world through training like them.  By competing against ourselves and our peers on a daily basis and exposing ourselves to a myriad of exercises, we become athletes.  

But what sport do we play?  What exactly are we training for?  We are preparing ourselves to be ready for anything.  If a friend asks you to go climbing, you're ready.  If you need to help out a stranger in an emergency situation, you're ready.  If you need to carry your kid, a 50# bag of dog food, and close the car door, you're ready.  You're an athlete and your arena is life.  Be your best… because every day is game day!

    bad news, i might not be able to get this sat off for the mudder because things happened faster at work than i expected and im an idiot (just the top two reasons) so ill give somebody some non photo id and what not and they can use my registration, its all paid for and i think it was non refundable. Not wanting any money from anyone, just want somebody to use it so its not a total waste. Ill know for sure by thur if i can go or not.
