Writing your scores/times for the day’s metcon or your PR on the whiteboard is something we do at CrossFit Athlete’s Arena after every class. Every CrossFitter should be proud of what they accomplished in class. Some gains come in leaps and bounds and sometimes they come 5lbs. at a time, but a gain is a gain. Knowing you are a better athlete than the last workout is what counts.
While there is a competitive, friendly air of competition in CrossFit everyone enjoys seeing what others have achieved in class. The whiteboard news motivates them to push themselves a little harder and go that extra mile. Having someone in class to go head-to-head with allows for growth beyond just yourself. CrossFit is not only about gains, it’s also about community and there’s no doubt CAA’s community enjoys celebrating their community member’s successes.
Keep up the hard work.
