Nothing is Easy

Too often people want to work out for the wrong reason, or they expect results too soon and without as much hard work as it should take. But those who are willing to put in the work and time will undoubtedly be rewarded with great results. That being said, this is not just for the already athletic. So often I hear people say that they will come check out the gym when they get in shape. UH? Isn’t that what we do? We get people into shape. Yes CrossFit is intense but it is scalable to everyone’s ability both physically and mentally. But you will be pushed to your limits by great coaches. You will be taught new lifts, learn new movements and gain a sense of accomplishment doing this stuff. The other thing I hear the most is that this stuff is dangerous. No no no it’s not. Full range of motion with good form is the best way to maximize intensity. When this is perfected then you can increase your weights, this is why we have 3 Levels for each workout. It’s dangerous to your health to not do this, none of us are getting any younger!  This leads me to a qoute by a guy that in the CrossFit community as been written off the map because he operates a gym similar to CrossFit but stays unaffilliated and has some methodolgy that differs. But non the less this qoute holds true and should be given some thought.

“Modern Man Is Conditioned To Expect Instant Gratification But Any Success Or Triumph Realized Quickly, With Only Marginal Effort Is Necessarily Shallow. Meaningful Achievement Takes Time, Hard Work, Persistence, Patience, Proper Intent And Constant Self-Awareness … Hard, Intelligent Work Speeds Us Along The Path. Neurotic Obsession And Compulsion May Steepen The Trajectory But Usually Lead To Illness And Injury. In The End, The Process Takes As Long As It Takes — You Can’t Push The River. We Are In It For The Long Haul.” – Mark Twight
