Why is the "sport of fitness" part of CrossFit important to our everyday workout program?  Its true that only the top 1% of CrossFitters go to the Games and most of them are young, athletic, amazing, specimens that can do crazy workouts that seem demonic to most.  And if the VAST majority of people will never get to that level, why make a big deal about it? First, everyone enjoys a good sporting event.  The hype, the characters, the stories, the actual events.  How the HELL can people do these things and still be standing the next day?!? It just is fun to see it all unravel.  Second, all workout programs show people that lose weight and how unhealthy they were "before" they started that program.  The Games are not just a "hey I lost 20#s!", its "hey look, I can do ANYTHING they throw at me and I look DAMN good when I'm doing it!!!"  Our goal isn't just dropping a few pant sizes.  Its doing that PLUS being able to do more things than you could when you were younger!  It means being able to rough house or play hide and seek with your kids/grandkids.  If you cant move right, then you cant play right.  To move right you need to train your body right and eat right.  When you do that you look right!  And how much do you weigh??  WHO CARES!!!!  You will be too busy playing to worry about it!!  And Finally, we can relate to these amazing athletes.  CrossFitters are not weekend warriors who USED to play and compete.  We do all the moves they are doing everyday!  We understand how hard it is, how heavy it is, how taxing it is, but also how enjoyable it is.  The Games are important because it the the other bookend to our program.  Love your BOX!  Love your PROGRAM! Love your WORKOUT!  Love your SPORT!!!
