I Love CrossFit and Zombies

I love CrossFit. Some CrossFitters are assholes, sometimes I’m an asshole. If you don’t do CrossFit I bet you are even an asshole at times. Anyways I’ve been getting several hits from people who are knocking CrossFit, which is cool, it’s not for everyone. I’m not saying its for the elite, but it takes people of a certain mental fortitude and personal ethic. People who are competitive get sucked in. How could they not? In running, you’re either the best or your not. In body building your either the biggest, or your not. CrossFit gives the people who are not exceptional at just one thing a chance to be great at many things. To beat the elite runner at lifting, to beat the body builder in metabolic conditioning.  CrossFit is an opportunity for everyone to be overall good, and at times superb. Laugh at me now. Go ahead. I used to be a cross country runner, I’ve put in some miles. I was never very good, more of a middle of the pack kind of person.  Now that I do CrossFit, I’m still middle of the pack overall, but for individual things I excel. For example I can “squat” clean more than several girls thirty plus pounds heavier than myself.  I have great endurance for heavy lifting with high loads. Though I am overall bad at running I excel at running hills especially against other CrossFitters. Booyaaah!!!

My rant: I’m actually I BIG hater on CrossFit as well, for the longest time and even still gyms are allowed to open, run by people who have no business teaching. As a coach for this “sport” I hate such places and people because it reflects on the community of which I take part. Assholes!!! Part two here’s an article of my favorite clients!

That said I finally sent in my passport application. Guam, Brazil, World, here I come! So, if you love or hat me and you live in one of the places I eventually venture, and you see me, don’t hesitate to stop me for a chat!

I’ve made the conscious descision that the Zombie apocalypse should it happen will suck. Every morning that I wake up at 4a.m. I ponder about zombies and just how prepared I am. I think that the morning would be an ideal time for it to happen as my family would be nicely tucked in their beds meaning A. I know where they are, and B. they haven’t been exposed. I would for an afternoon zombie pop. I don’t know where my loved ones are at 2p.m. Shoot. So remember kids, hide your kids, hide your wife, and lock your doors. Below is a video to prepare you!  Kthnxbye!
