This week the boys sat down for a chat about an opinion piece titled “CrossFit Still Needs Its Heroes”, written by the Editor-in-Chief of The Morning Chalk Up, a daily CrossFit focused email dedicated to keeping it’s readers up to date with the CrossFit community. This article was the perfect follow up to our conversation last week in episode 34 about the changes to the CrossFit.com main site and the overall change in focus of CrossFit HQ because it raised the questions of “who will we all look to as inspiration to help us dig a little deeper at the end of a workout?” Which is where we all know the most progress is made physically and mentally. And, “who will be the face of the sport that our kids look up to and pretend to be when they’re lifting weights, running laps and doing pull-ups? Who will be the Michael Jordan or Mia Hamm of CrossFit if we don’t remember to promote our sport as a sport?” As Justin said at the end of his blog post, “young athletes need to pin up posters of champions in their garages, imagining they’re going rep-for-rep with Mat Fraser; grabbing just one more before the time cap. The next generation needs to wake up hungry, hungry to compete, to grow, to sweat, to hurt, to earn it, and to win.” and Danny and I had a fun time chatting about how and why this is an important piece for the future of CrossFit.
