As the CrossFit Games comes to a close, let's reflect on some stuff, shall we!?

  • These athletes are the top 1% of the 1% so comparing your skills/strength/abilities/appearance as a CrossFit athlete is only going to lead to feeling like crud...so just don't do it! 
  • The form of the CF Games participants is NOT always a demonstration of good movement! They must meet very strict standards which are upheld by trained judges but since CrossFitters are good at adapting, form goes out the window as a sacrifice for keeping standards but still hauling ass. 
  • You are a part of a bigger community and a pretty darn cool one! We ALL have the goal of being fit and healthy human beings, ALL OF US, those people in the spotlight just happen to be hyper competitive about it and do it for a career! 
  • Don't forget when the next competition or The CrossFit Open comes around, how exciting it is to watch the Games, but imagine how much more exciting it could be to put yourself in their shoes and compete too! Just a thought... ;)
