CROSSFIT SYOSSET/ THURSDAY, MARCH 14TH

WHAT SHOULD WE TALK ABOUT TODAY?

HOW ABOUT A SUBJECT THAT USED TO GET A LOT OF PLAY BUT HAS LOST IT’S LUSTER WITH ME DO TO THE FACT THAT TO ME THIS SUBJECT NEEDS CONSTANT BOMBARDMENT WHEN YOU ARE YOUNG AND ARE STILL LEARNING ABOUT WHAT’S RIGHT IN LIFE.  WHEN YOU ARE AN ADULT IT IS HOPEFULLY INGRAINED IN YOU BUT IF NOT I GUESS IT’S TOO LATE.

I’M TALKING ABOUT INTEGRITY.
ACCORDING TO THE DICTIONARY:  “the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness”
ONE THING THAT WAS LEFT OUT IS “MAKING SURE YOU ALWASY DO THE RIGHT THING WHEN NO ONE IS WATCHING”

HOW DOES THIS RELATE TO CROSSFIT?
WELL, YOU WOULD BE SURPRISED.  JUST LIKE GOLF,  INTEGRITY PLAYS A HUGE PART IN THE SPORT OF CROSSFIT.
MOST TIMES YOU ARE PERFORMING THE WODS ALONE WITH NO JUDGE AND IT IS UP TO YOU TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERYTHING YOU DO IS AS IT SHOULD BE DONE ACCORDING TO THE RULES OF THE WORKOUT.

NOW WHEN WE FIRST OPENED THIS REALLY USED TO BOTHER ME, ALWAYS THINKING OF WAYS I CAN PENALIZE THOSE WHO DECIDED TO TAKE IT UPON THEMSELVES TO PERFORM THE WODS HOW THEY SEE FIT AND NOT HOW THEY SHOULD BE DONE.
BUT THEN ONE DAY I REALIZED THIS SHOULDN’T BE, WE’RE ALL ADULTS, AND ADULTS SHOULD HAVE ENOUGH INTEGRITY TO NOT HAVE TO BE HAWKED AT WHILE TRAINING.
BUT, IT DOESN’T ALWAYS WORK HOW IT SHOULD WORK.
BESIDES HAVING ENOUGH INTEGRITY TO ASSURE YOU DO EVERYTHING CORRECTLY WHEN TRAINING IT WILL ALSO MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE GETTING THE MOST OUT OF THE WORKOUT FOR THAT DAY.
CUTTING REPS IN HALF AND PERFORMING HALF RANGE OF MOTION DURING THE WORKOUT IS NOT ONLY SHOWING YOUR LACK OF INTEGRITY BUT ALSO IT SHOWS THAT THE CLOCK IS WAY MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE ACTUAL WORKOUT, THIS COULD BE NO FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH RIGHT?

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING WHEN YOU TRAIN IS TO GET 100% OF THE BENEFITS FROM THE WORKOUT, NOT THAT YOU FINISH FIRST.

I UNDERSTAND THAT EGO ALWAYS HAS THE POSSIBILITY OF REARING IT’S UGLY HEAD AND DISRUPTING WHAT REALLY SHOULD BE TAKING PLACE.  BUT IT’S UP TO US AS ADULTS TO OVERCOME THIS DISGUSTING TRAIT AND FORCEFULLY SHOW OURSELVES WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE.
JUST REMEMBER IN EVERY ASPECT OF LIFE, NOT JUST WITH CROSSFIT YOU ARE MUCH MORE RESPECTED WHEN YOU DO THING WITH INTEGRITY AS OPPOSED TO NOT, PEOPLE TAKE NOTICE WHEN THE WRONG THNG IS DONE
MORE SO WHEN THE RIGHT THING IS DONE.

DON’T FALL INTO ONE OF THE DEVILS’ TRAPS, BE YOUR OWN PERSON AND BE PROUD OF WHO THAT PERSON IS CAUSE IF YOU SPEND YOUR LIFE CHASING SOMEONE YOU THINK YOU SHOULD BE OR YOU THINK PEOPLE WANT YOU TO BE YOU’LL SPEND YOUR LIFE DOING TWO THINGS:
ALWAYS DOING WHATEVER IT TAKES TO BECOME THAT PERSON YOU THINK YOU NEED TO BE AND NEVER DOING WHAT TRULY MAKES YOU HAPPY AS OPPOSED TO WHAT YOU THNK MAKES OTHER PEOPLE.
