We spend a lot of time in CrossFit training our intensity.
By definition, CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity
There is huge value in this, and it is one of the things that we are here to help you find.
Most people don’t know where their redline is, and we help you find it.
But there is more to life.
This is why we also care about endurance.
ENDURANCE: The power to withstand pain or hardships; the ability or strength to continue despite fatigue, stress, or other adverse conditions
I also call this Grit.
Sometimes, we need to tune back the intensity.
Sometimes we need to learn how to put our head down and grind through.
Sometimes we need to practice the act of enduring.
Life does not always just come at us in short bursts that we can blast through.
Life is sometimes also about the long haul.
We are here to make you stronger, fitter, tougher, and ready for anything life throws at you.
You are building character traits that translate into every other part of your life.
If you can do this, you can do anything.
This is why we have Endurance classes every Sunday.
There is nothing to fear.
Endurance class just means that we skip the skill section of the hour and have a longer WOD.
A WOD where you pull back some punches and learn to put your shoulder into it instead.
Try them out, you will surprise yourself.
Then come Monday you will have a little more Grit to face the week with.
