Why do you do CrossFit? What motivates you to keep coming back? After all the sore muscles, blisters, pain, sweat, and sometimes blood, why do you come back just to do it all over again?
I am sure that most of you would agree that the community is what motivates you to come back. I have found that CrossFit is the one workout program where I actually feel a sense of community. Personally, I push way harder during the last stretch of a WOD when I have others cheering me on and helping me through it. I am able to work harder and kick up my intensity. And, if you didn’t know, Intensity=Results. At our gym, I am constantly seeing others improve and meet their goals because we push hard and our intensity levels rise when we are cheered on by other members.
We have all endured our fair share of WODs and understand the intensity and drive it takes to finish a workout (especially if you’re the last one to finish). So as a friendly reminder, cheer everyone on. Encourage them to keep working hard and to push through the pain. After all, we are the community that makes CrossFit what it is today, and the motivation for others to come back.
