Confidence is a staple to be successful in all of our goals. Not the confidence that we will always succeed but the confidence to try. Have confidence in your workout today. You made it to the gym, showed up for the daily workout. Go crush it.

  1. I am confident with deadlifts and power cleans…oh squats take every ounce of concentration I have. In the middle of an oh squat on Friday I totally pictured myself bailing and then I did…Not a good idea to do that in the middle of a lift! But after another try I got it (while trying to think more uplifting thoughts that time). CrossFit is a great way to develop confidence both inside and outside the gym.
