How To Become a Highly Competent CrossFitter??

HCC's have great shoes...

I believe in excellence being practiced no matter what your current skill level is. If you are an elite athlete it is a direct effect of your practice, attitude and consistency that has gotten you there. If you are are a beginner you can adopt the same traits as the best and eventually with that same practice, attitude and consistency you can not only become elite but have the potential to beat the elite. Last week I discussed the MINDSET OF THE ELITE and how they think. This week I want to show you the principles you need to adopt to become one!

How To Think To Become ELITE?

Taking notes on the ELITE!

Watching the CrossFit games this past weekend was amazing, inspiring and educating. To be able to see the best of the best CrossFitters all in one room is an eye opening experience. 

I have always been of the opinion that more of your success with CrossFit (and your overall life) has to do with your Mental capacity more so than your physical capacity. The way the Elite CrossFitters think is the main reason why they are the Elite. 

Here are the Mental characteristics of the Elite:
-They all have a coach. It is much more productive to have someone with a third party objective to help you skip unnecessary steps and push yourself further. 
-They are cool under pressure. If you were to watch their faces in the heat of competition in each event they are always in control, constantly breathing throughout the WOD and stick to their game plan. 
-They are always positive. I didn't see anyone complain about a WOD, movement, weight, etc... They understand that to be the best it doesn't matter what the WOD is, how HOT is was, how HEAVY the weight is, it only matters who they are. They trust themselves, the training they have put in, their support group around them, focus on the task at hand and block out any negative thoughts!
-They have appropriate goals and expectations of their performances. CrossFit is a numbers game. They know their numbers. They know what it takes to hit those numbers. They are focused on hitting those numbers.
-They don't worry about other competitors or uncontrollable factors. They understand that they are 100% responsible for their success. Their success has about nothing to do with anything outside of them and has everything to do with everything inside of them.

Why Not You???

Its a Rambo sandwich.

Each and every day, there are people all around the country and world who are living their dreams. Millionaires are made every day. Families are experiencing tremendous relationships. People are becoming more and more healthy. Lifelong learners are growing intellectually and improving their chances for success.

The fact is that living the life of your dreams is possible. People prove that every day. Someone somewhere is going to get rich, get healthy and improve their life. So my question to you is, “Why Not You?”
