The 2017 CrossFit Games are over, the Fittest Woman, Man, and Team on Earth have been crowned. Spectators head back to their boxes with a new sense of inspiration to push just a little bit harder, while most of the Games competitors are soaking up a bit of vacation, cheat meals, and relaxation before they start their journey towards the 2018 CrossFit Games. (Just check their instagram!)
Watching an event like the CrossFit Games usually brings about a slew of emotions for the spectators, especially in the sport of CrossFit because whether you are a professional athlete or just Cindy Lou that is trying to stay fit to keep up with her kids, we’re all doing CrossFit when it comes to training. Granted, the professional athletes are taking all aspects to a different level, but there are definitely things that can be learned from their dedication to the sport and then can be transferred to our daily life.
Ben Bergeron takes us through the journey of coaching Katrin Davidsdottir and Matt Fraser through the 2016 CrossFit Games in his new book: Chasing Excellence. Not only is it a great read, but the many traits that his professional athletes gained, we can also strive to take those with us into our daily lives. Let’s focus on a few ways that the non-professional CrossFitters can chase excellence throughout our daily life.
These are just a few simple traits that we, the everyday Joe, can take away from the Fittest Woman and Man on Earth. Every day isn’t going to be rainbows and butterflies, but if we commit a little harder, attack each day with a little extra grit, and arm ourselves with a positive attitude, things that always seem to go the wrong way, might just change for the better!
