Big EGO

21 Jan

One of the things I love about CrossFit is the mantra “leave your ego at the door.” During any workout it is always you against yourself; being the best person you can be. Lately, I have seen lots of egos pop up here and there throughout the gym. Whether it is not scaling due to an injury, miscounting reps cheating themselves, or simply not listening to their coach while they are trying to explain the workout of the day.

To be direct, when you walk into the gym you are no better than anyone else. Whether you are a competitor or starting day one of on-ramp, expectations remain the same; work fucking hard, do your best, be kind to others, coaches, and yourself, and be HONEST! Don’t sell yourself short! Be humble, be diligent, be virtuous!
