This Is Our Time

Posted: April 19, 2011 in Uncategorized

In CrossFit we have a very unique opportunity, that opportunity is the Reebok CrossFit Open. CrossFit has been growing by leaps and bounds, new boxes popping up, pro athletes saying they are going to try it, and business magazines saying that the Games just might be the next big thing. How long do you think something like the Open will be around, I suspect not too many more years before there will be an Open for armatures and an Open for sponsored athletes only. Right now we are all getting to compete with everyone, it is like getting to go play with your favorite pro sports team. We have the opportunity to experience what it is like to be in competition with the best of the best and on occasion maybe even top them. We should take advantage of this opportunity and just participate because we can be a part of something special. Whether you come in first place or last place doesn’t matter as much as how hard you worked to get to whatever place you end up in. Just remember that everyday is a new day and a new chance to do work harder and do better.

This is our time, it is our time to seize the moment and make it count. You can make the choice to put the bar down because the competitor next to you does or you can dig deep and hold on for dear life and pull ahead. There is no guarantee the guy that always beats you is going to do it today, today is your day. This is the day you refuse to stop when he just can’t keep going. This is a sport where heart can sometimes trump skill, but always gains more respect. This is CrossFit.
