CF Wisdom

“The point of CF is to get better at life. Being unable to workout tomorrow because you were pigheaded today is not in line with our goals.”
Garddawg – 22 March 2009

“CrossFit is not dangerous.
Bad coaching is dangerous, poor movement is dangerous. Ego is dangerous.
CrossFit, properly scaled to the individual is the safest and most efficient program available”
BlueBugofJustice – 18 August 2009

For newbies:  Err on the side of caution.  It is better to walk away from a WOD feeling like you could do more than injure yourself or be too sore to work out.  You have a long time to get better and absolutely no reason to rush it or believe rushing it will get you better faster.

“Strive to blur distinctions between ‘cardio’ and ‘strength training.’ Nature has no regard for this distinction.” -Greg Glassman

“Gold medals aren’t really made of gold. They’re made of sweat, determination and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.” —Dan Gable, U.S. Olympic gold medalist (1972, wrestling)

“Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.” —Lance Armstrong
