Magic Pill?

Rest Day or if you are so inclined here’s a WOD:

4 Rounds for time:

400m Run

50 Squats

Read “Dangerous” by Patrick Cummings of Again Faster.  This quote comes to mind: “There is no substitute for hard work and high intensity.”

Curtis recently shared with us this email:

“This afternoon I forgot to tell you that my general fitness was tested this weekend while I spent close to 14 hours doing heavy yard work – lifting, digging, pulling, punching, stabbing, cursing, etc.  I noticed that my body awareness (form), strength and endurance were all at higher levels than I can remember.  I am very excited about my early results with your leadership through CrossFit.”

There is no magic pill to losing weight or to becoming functionally fit.  You cannot put half the work in and expect more than half the results. It takes discipline, consistency, and hard work.

For those of you who have started with us recently, what observations or results have you seen?  Or have you seen none?  Please post your thoughts to comments.

CFC Visit Ian, Allison and Toby

CFC Visit Post WOD 

We are wrapping up our vacation and heading home.  We look forward to seeing all of you back in the gym.  Once again we were reminded of the incredible community of CrossFit.  We were fortunate enough to visit Ian and Allison of CF Centurion twice this weekend in their very spacious, new box.  They have a first class gym with first class people.  Everyone went out of their way to welcome us and we made some new friends.  Toby, who we had met before at CF Sacramento also dropped in for the WOD today. The community and brotherhood/sisterhood aspect of CrossFit is something you just don’t find too often.  Once you do you’re hooked.
