“The healthiest competition occurs when average people win by putting above average effort.” -Colin Powell
Do you work to your full potential?
Do you get done with workouts and wish you would have pushed harder, gone heavier, not gotten that sip of water, etc….?
If this is you, you are not ALONE nor are you Average!
I have been a personal trainer for 10 plus years working with all different walks of life, and although they push hard and see results, I have never seen the results happen so organically and efficiently as I have with those in CrossFit.
Each day you would come in to a CrossFit class you have people from all walks of life around you. The collegiate athlete, the mother of four, the girl in her 30′s that wants to get back into “high school” shape, the fireman who wants to get stronger and faster to help in his everyday workplace; the list goes on and on.
I would have your “Average Joe” walk in and in 3 months, 6 months, or a year ….. were no longer “average”! These people were power houses that could lift heavy weight, perform movements at intensities that I have seen pro athletes fail at, and most importantly feeling complete confidence on the inside and out.
These people were no longer “average” because of the community they were surrounding themselves in!
In my opinion “Average” is a mindset and where you choose to set the bar determines where you are and what you can achieve!
People were not only keeping themselves from being “average” they were encouraging others around them to raise the bar!
So I challange you CrossFit 818 to raise the bar above “average” by the books you read, the people you surrond yourself with, and the environment in which you choose to live!
What steps are you going to take to raise the bar?
