“I CrossFit… .” It’s an easy answer to give when an old friend notices your change in appearance and asks what you’ve been doing at the gym lately. But if any of them have ever followed up with the question “Why?” it becomes an entirely different exercise in mental futility. Why do we put ourselves through such torture, torment? I for one question my sanity about half way through Murph, and within the first 50 reps of Karen. Why is it that we drive our bodies to some random warehouse in Westside Costa Mexico, only to heave our bodies full-well into the depths of the pain cave?
This is what we’re asking, dear CrossFitter. Why do you do this? Inquiring minds want to know.
In fact, the best answer will be printed on a shirt for 2011. So speak up. Let us know why you CrossFit. Let us know why you’re dedicated to the best, and toughest fitness regime known to the County of Orange. Why you show up to our gym when it’s raining, when you don’t feel like it, when it’s difficult, when you’re sore. Let us know.
