Why?

Why do we do things like the Volkslauf? Well I can answer that in one, 3-letter word for me – FUN. But when looking a little deeper, from the standpoint of CrossFit and fitness… why participate in an event like this? I come up with a few reasons…

  1. To test ourselves in ALL 10 areas of fitness in one event (speed, strength, agility, balance, coordination, accuracy, power, endurance, stamina and flexibility)
  2. To see how you will handle the challenges of something completely unknown
  3. To work with others as a cohesive, effective team, exercising speed, and endurance and also patience and support
  4. To endure though the anticipation and anxiety of the start of a competition against others

Anything you can think of to add to this list, post to comments.
