We are hosting an L1 Seminar this weekend and the gym will be closed. There will be a 9 am ONLYWOD at the ARC track.
There comes a time for every new athlete when they question if CrossFit is right for them. Usually, it’s after the first month or two. Sure, within the first few weeks people quickly realize or make peace with the fact that they aren’t in the best physical shape. But after two months of showing up consistently, it should be easier right?
Here’s the secret to CrossFit: It never gets easier.
However, that doesn’t mean CrossFit isn’t working. In fact, if every workout is hard or at least challenging, then you are doing everything right. If you are consistently finishing the workout and aren’t sweating or you feel like you could do it all over again, you missed out on an opportunity to grow and get better. It is only by pushing your limits that you will see progress, which is why you decided to try CrossFit in the first place, right?
Most of us have done the conventional gym routine and plateaued. CrossFit changed that by pushing you out of your comfort zone, making you move sooner than you wanted to and to forgo that water break (i.e. excuse to take a break). When you don’t get the luxury of stopping when things start to feel hard, you get better, stronger and faster.
Don’t believe me? Watch a veteran member after a WOD. When they finish the workout in a smoking time, do they look cool, calm and collected? Or are they a heap on the floor for a few minutes?
It never gets easier. They just got better. They trusted the process and developed the ability to do more work in less time. They got fitter.
