Tuesday, June 5

Watched this guy compete at Regionals over the weekend and was amazed at what he has accomplished in such a short time in CrossFit after being addicted to heroin just a few years ago.

I think many of us have addictive personalities, which is why we keep coming back to these hard workouts over and over. Luckily, CrossFit seems to fill the void for some when they're trying to kick drugs, alcohol and more. Like the announcers said on the broadcast - there's nothing better to be addicted to than fitness.

Even if you just have some bad habits, or energy that is going towards negative things, try to channel those into something productive. Take it out on the barbell, go for a run, just clear your head. I'm so thankful I found something that really changed my life, and I want to share that with everyone. 

Here's a quick video from CrossFit telling his story.
