Our member, Daniel, couldn’t have said it any better! #Repost @danieltracy130 ・・・ Last night during #16point1. I didn’t want to sign up for the #CrossfitOpen. I love working out. I love Crossfit as a methodology, but I wasn’t sure about the idea of being judged, competing, and putting my scores out there for the world to see. The best in the world are breaking 300 reps, easily, and I felt like I might die after my lowly 102. My final set of #burpees felt like death. The final set of chest to bar pull-ups was impossible. As I struggled to fight for one last rep I looked at the clock, and with 30 seconds left our coach threw his hands in the air. Everyone in the box started cheering, shouting words of encouragement, and I somehow managed to get four more reps. My score won’t break any records, the only way I’m attending the Crossfit Games is as a spectator, but I challenged myself and did something I thought I couldn’t do. I achieved a very small victory by continuing to move when my body wanted to stop. I managed 102 RX reps in a 20 minute workout while a group of relative strangers fought side by side with me. People ask me why I gave up conventional gyms and joined Crossfit. Nights like last night are the answer to that question.
