Over the past few years since Matt and I have been coaching CrossFit we heard lots of excuses why people don’t try CrossFit.

I often hear from people that they “need to get fit” before they try CrossFit.  Well, isn’t that the POINT of CrossFit?  This drives me crazy every time I hear it. CrossFit promotes itself as ‘universally scalable’ which means everyone, no matter what level of fitness, CAN CrossFit.

We have an ‘On Ramp’ program so we can see how you move, figure out your scaling, you can gain confidence and learn the language, so you feel comfortable starting with group classes. We don’t expect you to start your workouts as Rx’d (prescribed). We DO expect you to leave your ego at home, come with a great attitude and tackle your workout to the best of your ability on that day.

So what are you waiting for? What are you doing now? Is it working for you? “If you keep doing what you’ve always done…you’ll keep getting what you always got!”

If you want to get strong, fast and get in the best shape of your life, then CrossFit is for you.  Stop making excuses, walk through the door with an open mind and the right attitude.

On a side note, we were all stretching, rolling and talking Friday night and someone asked, “How much should I weigh?” Well that opened a can of worms, I replied, “I just want to get strong, eat real food and lift as heavy as I can.” Then Matt said, “according to BMI, I am obese.”  That prompted a discussion about muscle, eating real food, and living a healthy life. All Good Stuff……..I like this post from CrossFit 203. Turns out, strong IS the new skinny!
