The WorkOut Called Life
Every day I try to sit down and write something with the intentions that it will inspire one person to be better. Whether it’s in changing their diet or getting their butt into gear with their workouts. But some days are just bad one and you may find yourself in the middle of an all day “AMRAP of: Feel despair, (Scream) intermittently, Embrace anger, Smash something.” This taken from a recent CrossFit Journal article, “CrossFit Lessons Outside the Box” byMelissa Joulwan. Who is also the author of the blog “The Clothes Make The Girl“. She is a former roller derby blocker for the Texas Rollergirls, and like many as suffered through the trials and tribulations of the beginner CrossFit athlete. This stuff is something different. You must be comfortable being uncomfortable! CrossFitters aren’t your average individuals, we are surely cut from a different cloth. We don’t follow the masses and feel like we can take on the world. And then you do a workout and quickly realize that the world is pretty heavy. It’s a funny feeling though even has humbling as the WODs are, that as soon as you hear 3-2-1 Go! everything else just disappears. And the world as daunting as it is seems, becomes really simple, just finish the workout! There is a huge amount of commradere in CrossFit gyms and it’s there to support you. Use it! I always say CrossFit prepare you for the movements of Life, but it also prepares you for Life in general. Life is as unpredictable as the next workout you will be doing here at the gym, tackle it with the same focus you do with your workouts and you can’t fail. I didn’t say it would be easy though.
