"Hello Mr. Amundson. My original background is in martial arts, teaching Taekwondo and Kickboxing. Since I've discovered CrossFit I've never been in better shape in my life. I've never felt better, never been faster, never lifted more, or more importantly to me, never been mentally stronger than I am now. When I began training, simply attempting the WODs was satisfying enough at first. Then setting goals helped keep me motivated (double body weight deadlift, improved Fran, linking muscle-ups). But now I'm consistently motivated to just be a better me thanks to your mental reworkings! I recently watched your lecture on leadership and mental workouts at the CrossFit One facility at Reebok HQ and it was the most eye opening, light bulb moment I've had in CrossFit to date. Equal to any PR! I've literally set free my anxiety over certain WODs or techniques. Your energy and enthusiasm is palpable through the screen and your examples and metaphors are inspiring! I hope you're breathing fire for years more and someday I can thank you in person."

If you are still not able to maintain, reduce the Swings to 12 Repetitions, and the Pull-ups to 6. Your “score” each round is your split time. How many people can Rx’ the session, and maintain sub 3:00 split times?

A word from Coach ….. 

Nearly twenty years ago, my dear friend and longtime mentor Coach Glassman explained to me a simple yet astounding principle of life: Successful people do hard things.

Regardless of your perspective on success, the fastest route to the mountaintop of your goals, aspirations, dreams, and life-purpose is your discipline to choose the hard right over the easy wrong.

Coach Glassman’s words of wisdom are in perfect alignment with the Word of God. Consider the following exegetical unpacking of the New Testament book of Hebrews.

“No discipline (the hard right) seems pleasant at the time (in contrast to the easy wrong) but painful (the painful hard right is temporary; the easy wrong generates a pattern of ongoing painful consequences). Later on, however, it produces (the hard right) a harvest of righteousness (success in the mind, body, and Spirit) and peace (contentment in all conditions of life) for those who have been trained (those who discipline themselves to always choose the hard right) by it” (Hebrews 12:11; my interpretation within parentheses.)

Whether it be finishing a hard CrossFit workout, embarking upon a longterm academic journey, or choosing to forgive a grievance, the key to success in every department of our life will always be found in embracing the hard right over the easy wrong.

Now that’s righteous!

~ Coach
