CrossFit is a life changing experience. It shows you that you are more than average. Whether you are doing Overhead Squats with a PVC pipe in WODs (Workout of the Day) or going Rx’d (prescribed weight), you are pushing yourself to pass every expectation you ever had for yourself. When have you walked out of your typical Globo Gym and thought that you needed to leave with your head held high because you literally just completed 150 Wall Ball. Probably never because this is a movement you can’t do at a typical gym. We want to work on technique so that you can become consistent and be able to perform movements at a high intensity.
We want everyone to realize that results are earned. You are not going to just get results because you show up. You have to put the work in. This is probably what scares people the most…WORKING HARD! This doesn’t mean that you have to move the earth like Chuck Norris. It means that you, individually, need to be able to walk out of the gym, and know that you gave it 100%. You can’t sit there in WODs and compare yourself to the other members and feel bad because you are not going Rx’d on weights. Yes, we keep track of all of your results. We post results of workouts up on our Podium Board, WOD Board, and profiles. We do this to create context for training, so that we all have a framework within which our training can exist… goals, expectations of performance, belief of what is possible, etc. Comparisons are good – as long as they are NOT used to make you feel bad about what you are doing… remember, the competition, 99% of the time, is just with yourself!
