I don't believe in "burn-out".  I think its used way too much by people as an all-encompassing excuse for what they are not wanting to do, for whatever reason.  Maybe they aren't as successful as they were.  Maybe they tired from having to get up to feed the baby at night.  Maybe they are dealing with stresses like money or career issues that are really impacting what they are doing.  But is it really being burned out?  I don't think so.  I think its more important to take a self-assessment and find out the real reason and whats really going on.  Let's take CrossFit workouts.  You came in and instantly fell in love with it.  The hardcoreness, the challenge, the new things you were doing that you never thought you'd be able to do, the community, the coaches, the endorphin rush at the end, the better body.  So how do you suddenly not like that anymore?  If you are up late at night with the kid then yes, you will be tired.  When you are tired it makes it tough to be excited to do anything let alone make yourself more tired right?  But this isn't being burned out.  Its just being tired.  Let's say you are plateauing in your lifts or your skills and you can't seem to get a PR, like every other day.  Sure that's not as fun but are you burned out?  No.  You're actually just getting to the part where you are getting good.  The daily PR thing is because you are learning how to move from having no idea at all.  But how can you get burned out from that?  I'm in no way saying you maybe aren't tired, or frustrated, or even bothered by someone who seems to be a perpetual douche but this doesn't mean you are burned out.  It's just a matter of switching your focus a bit.  If you are tired or dealing with stuff, then this is your stress relief.  It allows you to burn off some steam instead of hold stuff in.  If you get frustrated then concentrate on one of the other many good things that are going on in the gym instead of the one thing thats bad.  There will be plenty of good things to choose from.  And if you are just tired and broked from training so hard, then just come in and workout with the community that brought you in to begin with.  The love is there, its just clouded by other things in your life.  You aren't "burned out".  You're just living life   :)
