Re: For what it's worth- My Journey

I love you video.. It inspires me everytime I watch and that is often. I have been crossfitting for 7 months .. everything comes so hard for me , but I practise and I practise and the more I practise the more fun it becomes

Re: For what it's worth- My Journey

Thanks everyone! Can't believe how much attention this video still gets
I guess it strikes the right cord!

Tons more progress made since the video, if you check out my workout log on here or subscribe to my youtube channel I try to throw stuff up fairly regularly.

Does this include following instructions to go over the log wall and not around it?



Sorry- couldn't resist..

No, not very much really. Now its more just strength or oly stuff to fix anything I see wrong or if I'm going for a PR. It's just good every now and then to see yourself to correct things you'd otherwise miss.
In the beginning it was for the same reason, but there was just WAYYYY more to fix.
I'll only record metcons now if I feel it wont be one thats super boring to watch.

LOL....nope, you'll have to look to someone else for that.
I was so rattled with myself for that. Basically started us in a hole.

hey mate ive watched your vid and read your journal article pretty inspiring. mainly because you seem like a real down to earth guy. who wasn't born with a heap of athletic ability (no hate) but you actually worked hard to get where you are. kinbda gives me some hope that i could make the regionals here in aus one day.

Though I do work very hard, and always have even as a teenager, I would have to disagree with this.
Depends on who you ask I guess, I mean I'm no NFL freak or anything but I won a handful of provincial track titles (8 I think it was, over 200m, 400m, 300mH, 400mH) was named to second team all-canada east HS football team as a runningback, was bench pressing (hey, we all did it!) about 210lbs at 15 years old and squatting over 300lbs. I was always very very strong for my size. I can shoot mid 70's in golf (after playing a few times a year) and have always found it fairly easy to pick up sports and new skills. Apparently I take after my grandfather most out of anyone in my family. He passed away when I was 4, so I don't really remember him. But he played soccer for England's Jr. National team before going off to WWII.
I don't mean to toot my own horn here at all, just kind of putting in perspective that I have been a natural athlete all my life and I would definitely consider myself having some natural gifts that I've also worked very hard to improve.
The video is more about taking control of that. I did have it slip away for a couple years and honestly never thought I'd approach a level of fitness I have when I was younger. That video was meant to inspire people to just keep working because you'll never really know how good things can get until you get there.

I was the judge 2 lanes down from you guys- saw you doing burpees and was like 'that dude looks familiar'.

Never saw you again the entire weekend or I would have definitely said hey.
