A big part of life is moving forward when things get tough. Throughout your life there will always be something in your way, and through heart, passion, determination and some intellect you can get through anything. In the words of Sylvester Stallone ‘ It’s not about hard you hit, it is about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward”. How we push ourselves and how we handle pressure is what defines us as human beings. At the end of the day, nothing comes easy and the people who do have it easy, worked their asses off for it.
Achieving personal fitness can help develop these traits, believe me when I say that I still have a long way to go, but Cross Fit has helped put me on the right path. Working out has taught me to keep going when things get tough and that things aren’t supposed to be easy and if it is, you aren’t doing something right. Life isn’t meant to be easy, when things are easy people stop working and people get lazy. Cross fit taught me that once you overcome one goal or obstacle that you have to be ready to tackle the next one.
An aspect that is greatly overlooked is mental health. Having good mental health is vital for anyone to be happy, it keeps people productive and hopeful. Cross fit has the ability to help you work on yourself. It helps you test your own will and strength. It tests your will to keep moving forward no matter how sore or tired you are. Without good mental health, you won’t be able to be the real you.
There are some things that personal fitness can’t help, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t outlets out there that can help you. If you are going through a rough time, get help. You don’t know what can happen if you don’t and sometimes you can’t do everything on your own.
At this time I would just like to give a special thanks to Mr.Peters, he has been a fantastic teach and coach to me over the past three years. We’ve had a lot of good times together and even one a title together and stuff like that never gets forgotten. He always believed in me and what i was trying to accomplish starting me at Left tackle when I was a rookie on the senior team. Thank you Mr.Peters, what you’ve taught me the past three years will be carried over to school next year and into the rest of my life. you always trusted me even if I was a little stubborn and bull headed, and I am very thankful for that.
Don’t Give Up Before The Miracle!
