…and you will never be ready for CrossFit.
So you should absolutely start today. Right now. Right this second.

I am never prepared when I walk into the box.
Whether I know or I don’t know what’s on the whiteboard for today.
There is always a feeling in the pit of my stomach that reminds me that I am decidedly unprepared for whatever I’m about to do.
Kind of like when you’re about to take the test of your whole life and you know you should have studied harder or memorized more.
Except this is not that kind of test.
This test is going to ask more of you.
Demand more of you.
It’s not about your body. Your body can handle it.
This one is about your mind.
Can your mind push through the suck?
Can you convince yourself to give those last 5 reps?
This is not easy.
This is not leg lifts in leg warmers on your living room floor watching tv.
This is sweaty.
This is difficult.
This will be painful.
This will get done.
Whether it takes 5 minutes or 35 minutes.
You’ll do it.
And you’ll be back tomorrow and the next day and do it all over again.
That’s when something awesome happens. One day, you’ll walk into the box and you’ll do the work out and it will seem…easy. That’s you, getting better.
So you’ll do the unthinkable.
You’ll do something that you never thought you’d do when you first entered the box.
You’ll make it harder. On purpose.
You’ll add more weight.
You’ll move faster to make it more difficult.
You’ll get even better.
You will purposely make sure that you aren’t ready.
Because your success–your goals–are beyond comfortable.
You have to be uncomfortable to see how far you can really go.
To find your best self.
So you’re not going to be ready.
But you can start out toward your dreams.
Right this second.
