Workout: Thursday 03/12/2015

How do you test your fitness?  What drives you to train so hard and gives you the most personal reward when you out perform previous tests?  I feel the things we do outside of the gym is the reason for putting in the hard work inside of the gym.  Any thoughts?

    In regards to your question above, absolutely. Everything done in the gym helps me in life outside the gym. I’m way more durable at work, during play, and day to day activities. My fun “outside” the gym play time, even the hardest efforts, pale to what I’ve trained for in the gym.
    Thanks Paul

      JB,
      Thanks for the comment. I know for a fact that you apply gym work to what you do outside the gym. I’ve witnessed it firsthand. You are an incredible competitor and very talented athlete. I appreciate your dedication to your fitness and how you apply it to your athletic performances.

    I test my fitness through competition. Although I am competing against others it is really about a challenge against myself mentally and physically and building myself to come stronger in both. That is what allows me to be competitive and drives me to train hard. I also enjoy testing my fitness by doing active challenges I have never done before, it is enjoyable first to see if I can even do it, then how well or not so well I did it and realizing if I continue to work at it I can do it better. My personal reward is completing a goal although I do fail, and for some strange reason there is something special about failing at something and then coming back and succeeding. An example of that is this morning I failed at 3 attempts at heavy snatches (heavy for where I’m at). I failed today but am confident there will be a day that weight goes over my head, and with that I will smile. Besides that I like to stay healthy for myself, my wife my kids so I can take care of them and my home.

      Thanks, Joe.
      You, too, have an impressive athletic resume. Your efforts in training, in order to achieve those impressive performances, are really what sets you apart from your competition. You are so right on about learning from “failing.” You’re failures are not really failures, but advanced learning experiences. Great post, Joe. Thank you.

    This is a very interesting question, and I felt compelled to respond. When I joined Crossfit East County, I was overweight and unhealthy both physically and in my overall mindset. After two years of training with you, I’m by no means the strongest or fastest crossfitter, but I can tell you that Crossfit East County has not only changed my body but also my mind and attitude in life. Most importantly, I’m a better husband, son and friend, and I owe that transformation to Crossfit East County.

      Chris,
      Thank you for sharing. That’s a great testimony to how CrossFit works for everyone in a different way. What you get out of it doesn’t have to be measured in ways that we all expect, but in ways that are only quantifiable on a personal basis. Thanks, again, for commenting. Keep it up, Chris.
