I hope this is an acceptable thread topic, if not, I apologize in advance. I'm sure many of us have favorite lines from Coach. I just had to resurrect this one...

"When we engineer programs ...,we’re deliberately rubbing Pukie’s lantern."
http://www.crossfit.com/discus/messages/21/1431.html

I can see a t-shirt here:

Lantern labeled "Crossfit" on the front,
Pukie as the Genie and "Be careful what you wish for" on the back

In one of the CF journals (and attributed to Pukie)
(and I don't have it in front of me, so it's more a paraphrase than a direct quote)
"Pukie wonders why there are over 20 million recreational triathletes but only 7 recreational 800M runners?"

my favorites
Paraphrased due to early Alzheimer's...
"Going to the gym is better than sitting on the couch,
CrossFit is wickedly better than going to the gym"
and "Segmented training leads to segmented capacity"

i cant remember the exact quote, but something along the lines of:

"we can do what you do almost as well as you can, we can do what neither of us do better than you, and you cant even do what we do."




also, heres a link to a bunch of Coach's quotes that Ryan Atkins posted a while back (scroll down): http://www.crossfit.com/discus/messages/3499/8846.html

Wow, three days, I wasn't sure anyone even read this thread.

Thanks Eric,

I forgot about that thread, all good. Can't wait to meet the man someday.

"If you can't do 20 pull-ups your either fat or not trying."

Great motivator.

To paraphrase, or misquote Coach on the Blackbox effect:
"They put in leg raises, pec decks, curls, and no diet and what they get out is ****.
We put in O-lifts, gymnastic skills, BW exercises, tabatas, and the Zone and what we get out is monsters."
