I am a CrossFit Athlete
2011 Games Open 11.2
Complete as many rounds as possible in 15 minutes of:
9 deadlifts (155/105)
12 hand-release pushups
15 box jumps (24/20)When you walk into the doors at CFLA each time you check in to class, how would you describe yourself? Are you just a dude / chick goin’ to the gym for a workout? Are you showing up just to drop a few pounds, feel a little better in those skinny jeans you’ve got in your closet? Are you just trying to get in some cardio to shed some of the pound you gained over the holidays?
I invite you to try something else on… something that is unique to CrossFit. Something for which there is not context for at local globo-gyms or spinning/yoga studios. I invite you to look at yourself as your walking in the door of the gym, carrying your gym bag with your chalk, wraps, jumprope, tape, shoes, workout clothes, water and think – Athlete. I AM a CrossFit Athlete. In spite of what the rest of the world might say about you if they got wind that you were referring to yourself as that… do it anyway… I AM A CROSSFIT ATHLETE. Try it on. Say it a few times… and then try it next time you walk into the gym…see how the context of your training changes.
