CrossFit Inspiration: SUPPORT
No truer words have ever been printed on a t-shirt about CrossFit. Some of the most inspirational, motivational, emotional moments have come at the end of a WOD (Workout of the Day) when there are only one or two athletes still pushing to finish.
Those who have finished don't leave. They don't start laughing and joking. They don't rush around and put their equipment away. No, what happens is that everyone waits around and cheers. They yell out words of encouragement. They push and push and push until everyone is finished.
Yes, we are each in charge of our own fitness and it takes effort and tons of sweat and even some tears to reach our goals. But, I compare CrossFit to when I was in the Army. We don't leave anyone behind. We aren't finished until the last person finishes and in that moment when they complete that last thruster, throw that last wall ball, or Kip that last pull-up . . .that's when the WOD is over and that's when I know that it is all worth it.
