Thursday, June 21

Remember the MidSummer Meltdown is this Saturday! That means no classes, but we have lots of people competing and volunteering so if you can swing by please come cheer them on!


I was reading this article, BS as Rx'd: The Magic Fitness Pill, in the CrossFit Journal and it really got me thinking about our culture and how it relates to health and fitness. As a society we have been looking for the magic fitness pill for years, but it just doesn't exist.

In the article he says that most research on exercise is about how little work we can do and still get results. How little can we workout, how strict do I really have to be with my diet?

I love that we have a group of people at 616 who don't think that way. We have people that love to show up and work hard to get the results they want.

Can you imagine approaching other parts of your life with the attitude of doing as little as possible? Would you get very far in your job? Would you be a good parent or friend?

The expression anything worth doing is worth doing well comes to mind. Don't just settle for the bare minimum. Push yourself and give your best effort and you may surprise yourself with the results!
