What I Believe

I believe in an adherence to standards.  Chin over bar, squat below parallel, full extension, and chest to deck.


I believe in competition.  Do better than your last performance, the athlete next to you, OPT, Everett, Jolie, etc.


I believe in pride.  If you accomplish, brag.


I believe in camaraderie.  Encourage others and find delight in their achievements. 


I believe in the pursuit of information.  The more you know, the more you grow, even if it proves you wrong.


I believe in eating your meat and veggies.  Like Momma used to say.


I believe in heavy olympic and basic barbell lifts.  If you're not doing them, you're not doing CrossFit.


I believe in having a coach.  You may think you're doing it right, but you're not.


I believe your excuses are not welcome.  They're demotivating and generally useless.


I believe in doing fun new things.  Run, hop, cartwheel, jump, swing, dance, climb, play.
