The Importance of Intensity

Intensity, the word we all fear and love at the same time.  CrossFit is very much a love/hate relationship and that feeling is mainly due to the meaning of intensity.  As we progress in our training and perfect our form we begin to see the fruits of our intense workout style.  CrossFit without intensity is no better than going to 24hr fitness, we get little to no work done and it takes FOREVER to do a workout.  In CrossFit we only get out of a workout what we put into it.  If we are willing to sacrifice 5 minutes of our comfortable lives to intensity we soon begin to see how well it works.  Our bodies begin to transform our minds begin to accept the fact that we must leave our comfort zone in order to seek the results we truly desire.  Today’s post is short and sweet and I want you to all think about your workout ethic for a few minutes and think about how willing you are to leave that comfort zone in order to achieve the goals you set.
