It's Wednesday FriendsDay! Bring a friend that has never tried CrossFit to any class time today!
I saw this Instagram post after Mat Fraser won the CrossFit Games and thought it was worth sharing. Fraser broke his back while training as a weightlifter on the US National Team. He was on track to make a run at the Olympics until his injury. Now he has plates and screws in his back and was told he'd never compete at a high level again.
Then he won the CrossFit Games.
If you have an old injury or have had setbacks in your training, don't let them get you down. I believe we are only limited by our mindset and we can accomplish much more than we have so far.
As the post below says "We need our hardships and setbacks, it makes us stronger. Every setback it set up for a comeback. Use it to come back better than before."
This goes out to all of us that have been or are going through a set back. In CrossFit, we get to see the power of the human spirit. The innate nature to triumph over hardship, to show resilience, and to fight back together against pain are my favorite things about CrossFit. On the left is Mat Fraser after he broke his back (L5) in 2009 and had surgery to put 2 plates and 6 screws on the vertebrae in his lower back. Doctors told him he would never be able to train at a competitive capacity again. On the right is after he won the title of Fittest Man in the World at this years CrossFit Games! We need our hardships and setbacks, it makes us stronger. Every setback it set up for a comeback. Use it to come back better than before. Let it hold your arm up in triumph!
