Rise and Shine, Athlete! Yes, You!

ath·lete

/ˈaTHˌlēt/

noun

  1. a person who is proficient in sports and other forms of physical exercise

Whether you consider yourself to be one or not, if you’ve taken any interest in the way you look, feel, and move, you’re an athlete.

Although I’m not a Crossfit coach or athlete, founder Greg Glassman stated . . .

“[Our] needs and those of an Olympic athlete differ by degree not kind.  Increased power, strength, cardiovascular and respiratory endurance, stamina, flexibility, speed, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy are each important to the world’s best athletes and to our grandparents.”

One of my favorite quotes is by author Zig Ziglar.

“People often say motivation doesn’t last.  Well, neither does bathing—that’s why we recommend it daily.”

So, rise and shine, athlete.  Check out this video and “bathe” in motivation . . . because we’ve still got work to do!
