QUOTE OF THE DAY: "The spirit, the will to win, and the will to excel are the things that endure. These qualities are so much more important than the events that occur." - Vince Lombardi

!!!HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ATHLETES, COACHES, AND ALL OF OUR HYBRID FAMILY!!!
Come celebrate the holiday with your fellow Hybrid peeps by joining us for a Holiday WOD at 10am...there will be no other classes today, so this will be your only chance to get some work in before the carnage taking place at the dinner table. We love our holiday workouts - feel free to bring a guest to take part in the fun with us. Hope to see you there!
"So what makes you an athlete, and what makes you an exerciser? If you compete, you must be an athlete, right? But what if you train twice weekly and do a local weightlifting meet or a CrossFit competition in your gym twice a year? I don’t think competing is the defining characteristic of an athlete, although I do think it’s an important element. What matters is how you manage training within life and your mindset and intentions."

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “You can be the most beautiful person in the world and everybody sees light and rainbows when they look at you, but if you yourself don't know it, all of that doesn't even matter. Every second that you spend on doubting your worth, every moment that you use to criticize yourself; is a second of your life wasted, is a moment of your life thrown away. It's not like you have forever, so don't waste any of your seconds, don't throw even one of your moments away.” - C. Joybell C.

"It had taken nearly 33 years to build me up to my all-time low. But some time in the last 18 months I reclaimed the confidence I had surrendered to self-doubt. Somewhere under the barbell, on top of a box or in between WODs, I rekindled a passion for life."

QUOTE OF THE DAY (from Greg Glassman - founder/CEO of CrossFit):
“CrossFit is in large part derived from several simple observations garnered through hanging out with athletes for thirty years and willingness, if not eagerness, to experiment coupled with a total disregard for conventional wisdom. Let me share some of the more formative of these observations:
  • Gymnasts learn new sports faster than other athletes.
  • Olympic lifters can apply more useful power to more activities than other athletes.
  • Powerlifters are stronger than other athletes.
  • Sprinters can match the cardiovascular performance of endurance athlete even at extended efforts.
  • Endurance athletes are woefully lacking in total physical capacity.
  • With high carb diets you either get fat or weak.
  • Bodybuilders can’t punch, jump, run, or throw like athletes can.
  • Segmenting training efforts delivers a segmented capacity.
  • Optimizing physical capacity requires training at unsustainable intensities.
  • The world’s most successful athletes and coaches rely on exercise science the way deer hunters rely on the accordion.”

*IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO HAVE OPEN GYM TIME, YOU NEED PERMISSION FROM COACH ROMAN*

"When you start CrossFit you will be overwhelmed by a sense of accomplishment. It hangs in the air like the smell of a pretty girl's hair. You'll feel like the mayor running for office in Pleasantville - kissing babies, shaking hands, making friends. But eventually you'll learn you're not in Pleasantville. You're in real life, and CrossFit will hurt. Three years ago, I would have hidden that truth. Now, I think CrossFit's ability to hurt is also its most commendable quality."

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “The person I am and the person I wish to be are not the same. But if the gap between both decreases day-by-day, then it is okay.” - Richelle E. Goodrich
"If you allow yourself to cheat 'just a little bit' on the WOD, you are right – probably nobody will notice. But you know it and that’s the most important thing. Why? Because it has been scientifically proven that once we start to relax our moral standards, we are more likely to abandon further attemps to control our behavior and that means further misbehaving."
