When i first started looking into what CrossFit was, i fell in love with the idea of being able to be good at anything.  The CrossFit definition of Fitness, or "increased work capacity across broad time and different modes of operation", pulled me out of a workout slump.  I had been an athlete forever and i was always training for my sports or my career.  But i became bored when i didnt feel the need to push anymore.  I had never felt like this in the past.  I was missing something.  But when i learned about REAL fitness, i was fired up all over again.  It was a goal that i could shoot for and there wasnt really a finish line because you can constantly get better.  I loved it!!  Then a few years later, Coach Glassman came out with his next mindblowing definition.  The definition of Health.  He defined it as "fitness over time".  So basically, the longer you are fit, the healthier you are.  One of the models he used for his fitness definition was was the Wellness Scale.  In this model, everything can be put on a "Sickness/Wellness/Fitness" arching scale.  The scale shows that the more "fit" you are in any area (blood pressure, body fat, mobility, resting heart rate, etc.) then the further from sick you are.  Meaning if i am "fit" then if i decrease my fitness, i pick up a "bug" somewhere, or start to eat shitty, etc, then i will first have to drop to being "well" before i will drop to being sick.  Its like if you are fit then you have a protection period where you can see that something is wrong and then have time to fix it before you are truly sick.  Awesome!!!  You put this with the definition of Health and its the perfect prescription for growing older.  It means that you should be doing everything you can to be as fit as possible, because as you get older you will need this protection to stay at or above the wellness mark and keep you away from sickness, for a long time.  And the longer you can do this, then the Healthier you are:)

FEEL THE BURN!!!
