CrossFit is not about fitness. It’s not about competition, bright lights, $250,000 purses, or corporate sponsorship.
It’s about one thing: the idea that you can achieve anything, one rep at a time.
The idea extends far beyond your workout, although it applies there in spades. Want to complete a muscle-up? One rep at a time. Want to snatch bodyweight? One rep at a time. Want to complete “Diane” in less than three minutes? One rep at a time.
Take the lessons of CrossFit outside the gym. Scale a rock face, start a business, write a book, create good feelings with everyone you meet. One rep at a time.
CrossFit is the world’s most powerful lesson in disguise. It looks like a health and fitness program, heretical to the established order, but it’s really the expression of unlimited potential, heretical to the downtrodden, heretical to the naysaying attitude of the world’s pessimists.
Bring it, conquer it, own it, be better. One rep at a time.
Thank you, CrossFit, for the most important thing I ever learned."
