Why do I Crossfit ?

I think for me CrossFit has done a countless things. I am more comfortable in my own skin than I was before CrossFit, I was focused on training for vanity and not health and performance. It was directionless, mundane and no challenge. I also find that I have this mental toughness with everything thing that I do. I would never just stop in the middle of a WOD, so why would I just give up in the middle of a project? In times where I would give up before, I now charge on through. I have long periods without any sickness. I attribute this mostly to eating paleo, and consistently staying active. I think that being a CrossFitter just simply makes me happier, so then I am able to be better to those around me. I have used Crossfit to help me overcome addiction, I am happy and giving to my friends, and I am very helpful to my parents. I have played professional sport and exercised since I can remember and have eaten “healthy” since I first heard of the paleo diet through Crossfit, so for me it has truly been CrossFit and the CrossFit community that has made the difference.

For some of you I am sure you think I am crazy, or have no idea who or what I am talking about, but stick with CrossFit for long enough and it will make sense to you too. Yes, by doing Crossfit you will look better naked, but it is so much more than that which is what makes it worth doing. I have had the benefit of working with some top class coaches in my life and tried all mainstream methods at least twice so I feel like I have pretty much seen and felt it all, and there is nothing like this.

Well all of that is still just a small bit of my WHY. I could go on for days. Please post your WHY to CFD facebook page
