Re: Inspirational Quotes

Judging a person does not define who they are , it defines who you are.

Re: Inspirational Quotes

I what to modify this one “Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak.” — Sun Tzu for: “Do not be weak when you are strong, and be strong when you are weak" Give it all in your WODs, let just leave sweat and blood behind. Do not be the one that says "I could have done more reps or gone faster"

Re: Inspirational Quotes

From Matt Axelson (Navy Seal KIA Operation Redwings)

"But within the willingness to die for family and home, something inside us longs for someone to die beside, someone to lock step with, another with a heart like our own.". -Matthew Axelson

Someone requested it. One of my favorites ever.
(May not be 100% verbatim but close)

Agreed, glad somebody bumped this. For me, nothing can beat this quote by Glassman:

"We do your stuff almost as well as you, you can't do our stuff at all and we do stuff neither of us do way better than you can."

Really sums up Crossfitting in my opinion.

Too bad it's not actually true.
