Great job over the weekend on 14.1! Many, MANY people did better than they thought they would; some achieved double-unders for the first time, some beat their 2011 score, some had PR snatches, and some just spent 10 minutes far beyond the borders of their social comfort zone. All are big wins. This is why we compete: the intrinsic pressure to go further than ever before.
Sometimes, we test ourselves. More often, we train ourselves. This balance is the difference between being coached and just beating yourself up on a regular basis. As more of your friends tell you they’re “doing CrossFit” at GoodLife or the YMCA, it’s important to explain that CrossFit isn’t just random craziness done at super-high intensity. It’s objectively-measured fitness derived through the most efficient means available. The ‘measured’ part is important: are you better than you were in 2011? In 2013? Last week? If not, why? If so, are you the best you’ve ever been, and how good can you get? These are the questions that drive our workouts.
You don’t have to do the Open to influence our programming. We mine that data, of course, but we also want you to test positive for Happy. Do the workouts, the group, the coaching, and the gym make you happier?
