“You’re only going to get as much as you put it into it.” I bet you even tried to explain this idea to somebody else when asked about CrossFit or the Whole Life Challenge. Your parents explained it to you and now you find yourself echoing the same sentiment to your little ones. It still amazes me how often we all need to be reminded of this simple truth. I myself was reminded of this today because of my sub-stellar approach to the business side of P3. The only way P3 will evolve to the epic-ness I see in my head is if I “Lean in” to the business every single day to make it better than the day before. And for that reminder I would like to thank Coach Dan, he doesn’t even know what he did or how but I know that by having him as part of the gym it is only going to make P3 better.
So your reminder for the day: You are a student of P3 CrossFit the school of elite fitness, not the come as you want and do as you want Globo Gym down the street. When you are instructed to perform a task, no matter how difficult or uncomfortable it is, you make it happen. There are no excuses, there are no deadline extensions, there is no easy way around it and the bare minimum will not suffice. You have to give it more than what you think is necessary to gain anything of substance. So I ask you all to “Lean in” become a bigger part of the program, ask questions and demand answers of your coaches, do your homework (mobility/nutrition/rest/recover), don’t hide in the corner or try to justify showing up late, be accountable for yourself and become even greater than you imagined.
I’m tired of being nice about it. I like all of you, but this is what I have to say to you that aren’t on the edge of your metaphorical CrossFit seats because the rest of us are going places.
3 Rounds. Rest 1 minute between rounds. Not for time.
