What Do You Believe In?

I believe in an adherence to standards. Chin over bar, squat below parallel, full extension, and chest to deck.

I believe in competition. Do better than your last performance, the athlete next to you, OPT, Everett, Jolie, etc.

I believe in pride. If you accomplish, brag.

I believe in camaraderie. Encourage others and find delight in their achievements.

I believe in the pursuit of information. The more you know, the more you grow, even if it proves you wrong.

I believe in eating your meat and veggies. Like Momma used to say.

I believe in heavy olympic and basic barbell lifts. If you're not doing them, you're not doing CrossFit.

I believe in having a coach. You may think you're doing it right, but you're not.

I believe your excuses are not welcome. They're demotivating and generally useless.

I believe in doing fun new things. Run, hop, cartwheel, jump, swing, dance, climb, play.
