Moving Well Allows For Greater Intensity
High-level success comes from doing all the simple things that everyone knows they should do, but no one actually does. Nicole C., shown above during Test A Benchmark Day, being asked to perform 30 clean & jerks for time at a max load that would allow her to move fast while still being able to hold good form. And even though the workout called for a ‘heavier’ load, Nicole chose a more ‘manageable’ load that allowed her to focus on proper form. This in turn allowed Nicole to operate at a much higher intensity. She finished the workout in under four minutes.
Champions are built brick by painful brick and that can take a lifetime. Sometimes it can happen without anyone even bothering to notice. Take heart. The mountains you climb can’t always be seen by the audience… Still, you must not stop climbing. For whatever actions we take, or do not take, the mountain remains.

So what does a Financial Investment Juggernaut, random guest, Builder, Real Estate VP, Nurse, Six Sigma Black Belt, Admissions coordinator, Author, Web Developer, Chiropractor, Ambassador of Fun, celebrated Mixed Martial Artist, Restaurant Manager, and the best damn Mixologist in Seattle all have in common with one another?
Aside from striving to surround themselves with people who will always push themselves to be better, the answer is simple: True Grit.
CrossFit has become the great divining rod for bringing people together in a way that celebrates our greatest strengths and punishes our greatest weaknesses. And that punishment is what makes us more resilient and more incredible than we ever could have imagined; thrusters and pull-ups will do that to a person!
