“I have always been of the opinion that more of your success with CrossFit (and your overall life) has to do with your Mental capacity more so than your physical capacity. The way the Elite CrossFitters think is the main reason why they are the Elite.
Here are the Mental characteristics of the Elite
- They all have a coach. It is much more productive to have someone with a third party objective to help you skip unnecessary steps and push yourself further.
- They are cool under pressure. If you were to watch their faces in the heat of competition in each event they are always in control, constantly breathing throughout the WOD and stick to their game plan.
- They are always positive. I didn’t see anyone complain about a WOD, movement, weight, etc… They understand that to be the best it doesn’t matter what the WOD is, how HOT is was, how HEAVY the weight is, it only matters who they are. They trust themselves, the training they have put in, their support group around them, focus on the task at hand and block out any negative thoughts!” Continued…
