Jodi surfs a lot , I mean she does a huge amount of research, (bullshit)  and sends me a lot of crap that she wants me to read and I usually find the phone book way more interesting but this one we agree on. She found this place in Canada owned by two women and this is the Mantra (slightly edited) that they have posted in their gym. It’s spot right on …..

CrossFit Mantra at Burlington CrossFit Altitude

1. I will promise to do my best. My best will vary from day to day, from hour to hour, from minute to minute. But in that minute, I will do the very best I can.

2. Lactic acid is my friend. The wind is my friend. Anything that opposes me is actually helping me to become stronger. If I had no opposition, I would be WEAK.

3. If I can run, I run. If I have to walk, I walk. When I am forced to crawl, I crawl. And then I rest and live to fight another day.

4. I fear no person, but I FEAR my workout. If I don’t fear my workout, it isn’t hard enough.

5. I may puke. I may cry. But I will never quit. EVER.

6. I never cheat. There is no honor in cheating. What joy can there be in a victory I did not earn?

7. The workout missed is the opportunity missed. I will not cheat myself out of the opportunity to become a better athlete and a person.

8. I understand the value of the push up, the pull up, the sit up, the squat and the dead-lift. Just as there are a million ways to make chicken, so too are there a million ways to squat, sit up, pull up, push up and dead-lift.

9. I will give everything I have and then find more within myself.

10. I don’t complain.

11. I will never miss a RAW Saturday Outdoor Class. EVER.
