If you took class yesterday, you may have noticed that we didn't mark down anyone's weights or times. The reason behind it all? A lot of times we can get caught up in the competitive aspect of CrossFit. What time did so-and-so get? How much weight did he/she squat? I'm not saying competition is a bad thing. I am a very competitive person naturally and I love a good head-to-head throw down. I also know that getting too wrapped up in competing with others makes coming to the gym, or any activity for that matter, less fun. By not putting up weights or times yesterday, we wanted to bring the focus back to you. After all, it is your workout. Should it really matter what anyone else did? In a perfect world, no, it doesn't matter, we're just working out. But I get that sometimes you need that little bit of competitive drive to really push hard in a workout. However, we've talked before about the difference between competition and training. Everyday is not a competition, it's training. Every 6 weeks or so is when we bring competition in to see just how much you've improved with training. So yesterday we wanted to take any pressure to perform off the workout and just have a good time with it.
P.S. Don't worry...it's not permanent!
