Respect

Lisbeth Barbell, CrossFit, CrossFit Essays, Essays, Fitness, Life, Mindset, Respect

You’ve got to respect the barbell.

Respect the kettlebell.

Respect the double-under, the L-sit, the unassisted pull-up.

Respect the platform: keep it clear of extra plates. Respect your platform mates: spot them in case they fail. Pick them up when they do fail, physically and mentally.

Respect the place where you work out. Stow your gear. Line things up. Throw out the trash.

Respect your body: don’t put garbage into it. Respect your mind: don’t put garbage into it. Respect your heart: don’t let folks trample all over it.

Sounds easy, huh? Try it today, from beginning to end. See how it feels.

Treat your gym with respect. Treat even your enemies with respect. See what happens.
