I had a new member tell me yesterday that when looking at our site and our programming, it looks much harder and more intense than from other gyms.  I smiled and said "yes!"  There is a reason for this, as I explained to him.  In CrossFit, we talk about goals and how to reach them.  In MOST cases, I have seen the majority of goals are of those spectacular movements like to get muscle-ups, or to deadlift 400lbs, etc.  These are great but I don't see people actively trying to achieve these goals.  They don't put extra time in, they don't practice the skills, or they don't push to their utmost on particular days.  But there is ALWAYS one goal that everyone wants to get to...they want to do the workouts RX'ed!  This is always a goal that people will actively try to get to.  So to keep the masses in our box moving towards that goal, I set the bar high!  I want the RX'ed workouts to give our most elite athletes a run for their money.  Some may say that having the bar too high is detrimental to those that cant make it, or wont achieve it soon, because they will get frustrated and not have the sense of success.  I disagree however!  Now when they DO  achieve it, imagine the elation of those members!!!  This will drive them and constantly push them further and further.  It teaches that nothing comes easily and quickly.  It takes time, dedication, and passion to achieve your goals.  We constantly push our members and their performances show it!!!
