Not sure who said it but:

Re: Inspirational Quotes

Heard this over the weekend and it was stuck in my head as I was working out the kinks in my clean form.

"The harder you work, the harder you work"

Really? I don't think I would work this hard if I didn't think it was true.

I'm sure you do think it's true, because you posted it. But it isn't.

Re: Inspirational Quotes

This is a pretty cool video that I just watched: http://vimeo.com/27933991 (wfs)

There is a great quote from it, happens around both the 3min and 3:30 mark: "When you get to the point where all you want to do is be successful as bad as you want to breathe, then you will be successful."

It's six minutes long but well worth it, right up there with the Nike basketball commercial with the guy in the wheelchair.

Really sums up Crossfitting in my opinion.

Jacob what is wrong with this statement? It seems spot on to me

Re: Inspirational Quotes

Not exactly a quote but a few lines from my favorite Poem, "If" by Rudyard Kipling that I find extremely fitting:

...force your heart, nerve and sinew,
to serve your turn long after they are gone
and so hold on when there is nothing in you
except the will which says to them, "Hold on!"

The bold line is written under the monitor of my C2.
