5 Tips to Mentally Survive the CrossFit Open

The CrossFit Open is designed to test your limits and to push you further than you’ve ever gone before. While the physical toll on your body is high, the CrossFit Open will also test your mind.

 How Dave Castro ruined CrossFit

CrossFit started as an exercise program.  That’s it.  It has become a sport and that is largely due to the efforts of Castro.  Sure there has always been an element of competition to CrossFit and that is what makes it so groundbreaking, that little dose of competition pushes people to go just a little harder and that effort is rewarded by stronger, more efficient, healthier bodies. Many of the people coming into CrossFit affiliates in 2016 have seen the CrossFit Games on ESPN and decide to give it a shot after seeing Froning, or Baily, or Thorisdottir.  Great bodies. Amazingly capable bodies.  Most of these people don’t know the roots, and never take the time to learn. Hell, let’s be honest, many of the affiliate owners would fit this bill too.
