I read this quote today and it resonates with me because it was so true when I was a platoon commander, and it’s true of CrossFitters:
“Don’t be afraid of working the Marines hard. They’ll grumble, but when they’re done, they’ll brag about it. That’s what you want, you want them to feel tough and hard and good.” – James Alban
This quote isolates one of the best aspects of CrossFit, one of the reasons CrossFit at an affiliate is so powerful – self improvement through shared suffering. CrossFit is hard, really really hard. CrossFit isn’t hard just to be hard though, it’s hard in a way that makes us stronger. After you’re done with a CrossFit workout you feel tough and hard and good, and that feeling translates to many aspects of life.
