The greatest adaptation to CrossFit takes place between the ears.
While I was away Joe wrote several times in this space about the mental aspect of CrossFit, pushing through a workout, or knowing you can keep moving. I’m a firm believer in the above quote from CrossFit’s founder. Everyone begins their CrossFit journey in a different place, often with the desire to get in the best shape of their lives. The elite fitness that we’re forging is not just physical though. As we learn new movements, surprise ourselves with our own strength, and work harder than ever before, we discover that we are capable of more than we ever thought possible. Learning what can be done allows us to go that much harder, knowing we can handle it, gaining mental strength and toughness from our newly discovered physical capabilities. One of the best parts of coaching is the surprised expressions and excitement I see on all of your faces as you achieve things you thought impossible a year, a month, or a day ago. If you take nothing else away from your journey towards becoming a healthier, fitter individual other than the knowledge that you can then the program was successful.
