What Would Happen?

Lisbeth CrossFit, Essays

What would happen if you failed? If you dropped the bar? If you ended up on your a**?

You might bruise your butt and your pride.

And, hopefully, you’d get back up and try again.

But, if you didn’t, that would be okay. It would just mean you don’t belong here. And that’s cool. Better you should know now. Better we all should know now.

Because CrossFit isn’t for quitters. CrossFit isn’t for people who refuse to try again. CrossFit isn’t for people who expect that victory comes without effort.

CrossFit is for people who try, people who work hard, people who know that failure (and learning from that failure) is the path to success.

So, if you call yourself a CrossFitter, let me see you attack that lift and this life. Let me see you on your a**. Let me see you put your heart in the workout and your ego on the bench. Let me see you try.
