The Only Movement That Matters Is the One You Are Doing Now

If you don’t CrossFit, I’m cool with that. If you CrossFit, that’s okay too.

But there are some folks out there obsessed with hating CrossFit and CrossFitters. That’s really funny when you think about it, and it’s pathetic.

I don’t care if you drive a Chevy, a Ford, or a Toyota. I don’t care if you smoke or drink a lot, unless your smoke blows my way or your drunken ass gets in my path. You have the right to make what I might think are dumb decisions.

I don’t care if you have bad teeth, a horrible vocabulary, and you like to wear tin foil on your head. More power to you. Live your life the way you want, right up to the edges of where it affects mine.

I’m too busy serving to get into the business of undermining. Really, who the fuck has time for that?

So, let me offer a piece of advice, whether you want it or not: If you find yourself getting absolutely red in the face, pulse rising, teeth clenched over what someone ELSE is doing?

STOP. Think. Redirect yourself.

The only movement that really matters is the one you are doing now—in the gym or in your life.

You can direct your own efforts. You can make a difference. And in doing these things, you can better your life and the lives of those you love.

Work on you. Help those who want and need and will accept your help. Fight where you need to fight and where your efforts can yield results. Drive on past the other battles. Ignore the tin foil. Build. Live. Love. Succeed.
