Why CrossFit?

CrossFit at Black Tusk Athletics

Why is CrossFit so awesome in our books? Well, would you agree that hard work gives you a sense, a feeling of accomplishment? Would you agree that our bodies are pretty amazing and capable of a lot more than we give it credit for? Would you agree that hanging out with really cool, fun people is a great way to use of your limited time?

These three questions may appear completely unrelated to each other, but contrary, these are the exact reasons why Black Tusk Athletics thinks CrossFit is so awesome.

We won’t beat around the bush, as you probably already know, CrossFit is tough. It’s hard work that demands your persistence, your dedication, your commitment. You get out of it what you put in. When you come in, you give it all that you have, do the work out as it is intended, you will see the results. When you finish a work out that you didn’t think you could, the sense of accomplishment, of liberation, is so fulfilling. Limits that we previously set for ourselves almost feel silly.

Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty…
— Theodore Roosevelt

Our bodies are amazing machines.  With proper coaching, some guidance, patience and practice, our bodies adapt to the exercises we move through and the words “I CAN do this” will leave your mouth more times than you even thought possible, not only with respect to physical fitness, but for all aspects of your life.

I know that sounds cheesy...cheesy yet true 😊. But the most magical part of CrossFit really is the community. CrossFit somehow brings the best out of everyone. In every single class we have, every single person is giving it their 100%, cheering on their fellow athletes and friends.  It’s truly something special that you can only appreciate once you experience it.
