What comes first body or mind? Do you hate your body so much that you train hard OR do you understand that your body needs to be challenged and simply give it what it needs?
I tend to lean towards the idea that we are mentally weaker than we are physically strong. Do any of us truly understand and know, mentally, what it means to physically challenge ourselves. Not to say that Marathons, Ironmans, Tough Mudders, MS150s, professional sports aren’t physically challenging. I’m talking about the mental and physical dedication to bettering oneself as a human being every moment of every day. Helping yourself by helping other see they way. When was the last time you learned or tried something new? When was the last time you taught something to somebody? When or have you ever mastered something? Did you leave the gym a better a place than when you arrived at it today? Was the workplace a better place because of something you made happen? What context do you look at making your mind and body stronger or is CrossFit simply just that?
