Why train as if your life depends on it?

After competitive sports are over for you, what is the motivation to continue training with intensity?  Many people get the idea that they are too old to workout hard.  What is hard?  That is a completely relative statement. Rocklin CrossFit training can be “hard” and intense.  Although, that is not to say that a deconditioned athlete can not partake in it and gain the benefits.  Everything is scalable either by load or volume.  So for those of you whom do not want to work out “hard” and would rather hit some “cardio” on the elliptical, go to your local fire, police, or military service branch and thank each and every one there.  Thank them, not only for protecting and helping us, but for training themselves and pushing to the next level.  They train because their lives depend on their condition, they also train because at some point in our lives, our life depends on it!  So, show some appreciation for the hard work people put in, join the community and help to better your life as well!

FIT FOR DUTY, FIT FOR LIFE!

Nor Cal Sectionals in San Jose

This weekend was a blast!  There was a lot of negativity amongst many people at first and they really began to lose sight on what this weekend was all about.  Day two had a lot more positive energy and the overall turnout could not have been any better.  Thank you for all the logistical help, judges, and volunteers.  You guys made it possible to have a steller event and the largest in the history of CrossFit competitions.  The competitors did a tremendous job as well giving their absolute all, I know I speak for myself, but I’m sure others feel the same.  I feel lucky to have been able to partake in such a great venue.  Thank you!

Northern California Sectionals

Well, day one is complete. The weather is perfect and the wod’s are intense. Everybody here us laying it on the line and displaying some serious heart and intensity. Everybody from our box is doing well, Lynn Hunter is in the top 15 and is going on a bike ride tonight (apparently the wod’s weren’t enough!). Weygandt had a hard time with the first wod, but really showed what it’s all about by giving it all in the second. Garvin is doing great, he is some serious competition and is going to crush tomorrow, lots of strengths for him there! Find out the workout for tomorrow at http://games2010.crossfit.com/ then imagine a couple hundred people yelling and cheering for you with the great media attention as well. What a rush!
