We have so much fun while rowing!
I absolutely believe that CrossFit makes us better. Not only does our physical health improve, our mental and emotional health also improves.
I have been blogging about mental toughness every Thursday for several years now, and I'm so happy to discover that CrossFit has also published articles on mental toughness.
I'm sharing this article by John Hermiz a Level 1 CrossFit trainer and a psychologist specializing in behavior change. The article is worth reading entirely, and here a few guidelines Hermiz found useful in helping athletes develop toughness and confidence.
Start off at the right level. A beginner needs to experience success, not failure. Therefore, use proper scaling. Set up yourself and others for success. No one gets better by constantly failing. It won’t help to get injured either. Don’t try to run a marathon without proper preparations. It will be a horrible experience, and if you manage to push yourself through, there’s a real risk of injury.
Remember to represent your favorite Super Hero or Super Heroine in class tomorrow! It's the CrossFit Open Workout 20.2. It will be released tonight at 6pm. What do you think it will be?
