VIDEO: Letting Beauty Speak Up Itself

CrossfitHQ is back at it again, releasing this new video “Letting Beauty Speak Up Itself.”

Many of you might have heard some of the recent criticism that CrossFit has received in the news.  CrossFit HQ has done a great job concentration on one of the most important and misunderstood aspects of the sport: WHO YOU ARE INSIDE!

One of my favorite lines from the video:

“There are people who spend their entire lives allowing the reflection in the mirror to determine their self-esteem, submitting to a cultural judgment established decades ago. But in CrossFit gyms all over the world, mirrors are conspicuous by their absence. Fitness is gauged in reps, in speed, power, virtuosity. And beauty is measured in joy. And in pride.” – Marty Cej

I don’t know about you guys, but the people at my box, myself included, are not these amazing fit, ripped human beings; it’s our heart that makes us stand out. In the we’re special, unique. In the difficult things, we are willing where others are not, and that makes tough days easier to get through.

Give the video a watch. Share your thoughts in the comments below.

But he is a MACHINE, routinely lifting the heaviest weights and getting some of the fastest times on WODS. it’s so awesome because it really ties into that
