Resilience and community are the two most powerful aspects of CrossFit. Here are some thoughts on both.
After attending the 2016 CrossFit Games I realized that I watch very little of the actual competition. It’s not that I don’t enjoy watching the athletes character on display, it’s because there is something going on at the Games that I can’t catch later on ESPN or Facebook. What is important to me is the people and the relationships that are built. I like to get out and talk to people from all over the world. I always learn so much and I’m humbled by the universal bond CrossFitters share. That is where the magic is and it can’t be made up by watching replays.

This goes out to all of us that have been or are going through a set back. In CrossFit, we get to see the power of the human spirit. The innate nature to triumph over hardship, to show resilience, and to fight back together against pain are my favorite things about CrossFit.
