What is CrossFit

CrossFit is fun.

That’s it. That’s all. You can find other definitions, including the official one, but, as an adult, exercise boils down to a simple question, “am I enjoying this?”

It’s really easy to google “Crossfit” or do a YouTube search on “Crossfit” and find amazing videos and stories of Rich Froning and Jason Khalipa and all these other amazing human beings who are just phenomenal physical specimens, have worked their asses off, and have earned their titles as “fittest people on earth.” But that’s the surface or the pinnacle.

One of the things that a lot of people who look at CrossFit miss is that the bulk of CrossFit, maybe 90%, are people who go to their jobs, go to a workout, and look to do better for themselves by doing so. It’s not about people going to the Games. It’s not about people winning competitions. For most people the real competition is just getting to the gym and finding time to workout.

There are a few among that 90% who seek to go as hard as they can and attain some level of performance. We won’t be winning the Games or even winning local competitions, but we will be pushing ourselves to new heights. That’s what I think this is about for me.

Yes, this was stolen verbatim from my “About Me” page. Can I sue myself for plagarism?
