*Note: Please please try and do this at the Starpoint. Jump on the row machine, grab your bar for OHS (or use the smith machine) and bring your jumprope. Watch everybody stare at you in amazement. This will get people talking and want them to start doing it.
Also some words of encouragement. Keep up the great work. It has been a year for most of you and most of us can say, including me, "I am in the best shape of my life". Some may ask the question why? There are many reasons but to keep it simplified, it is because CrossFit does not cater to you. It does not hold your hand. It does not alter your workout. It does not make you THINK you can't do it. It does not let you criticize anyone. It does not say, "you can't do it". What it does do is COACH you. It is the conservative methodology. Everyone can do it! It's up to you! We have become so liberal that we as coaches have allowed society to get over weight. We cater to the obese. We hold their hand. We alter the workout so much that the client is not getting results.
Remember the begining? Some of you were 2, 3, 4 times slower (times) and only using half the weight. But what were you doing the same when compared to me? You were giving 100%. Everybody can give 100%! Just because you are overweight, out of shape and every other excuse, does not mean you can not give 100%. This is the key to the success. And it works.
I have seen 56 year old overweight clients do crossfit and now are ripped and competing in the games. I have seen crippled clients with many diseases do crossfit and are no longer crippled nor have some of the diseases once had (diabetes). It is not about how much weight you can throw above your head. It is about how much work you can do in the littlest time. It is called PRODUCTION! Something America has lost. Work, Produce and get RESULTS! It is about being Healthy! IT IS ABOUT BEING FIT!! Keep up the Great Work and encourage all to learn how to work again.
Remember my brother from California? Remember when he joined us? Remember he was going to do well, since he was a runner? Remember when he took three times as long in a running workout? Remember he puked all over? Now look at him. He has made it on the main site webpage. He also has made it on the CrossFit Santa Clara Website. Check it out.
