Music makes the 'box' Go...

Before you started Crossfit, you probably belonged to a gym or frequently visited community centres. And you probably didn’t go to the gym without your music playing device. Whether music was used to motivate you or distract you, leaving home without it was not an option. The group atmosphere that makes Crossfit what it is involves each of us providing support and motivation to fellow crossfiters. Could you imagine what it would be like if we a) worked out without the stereo playing in the background or b) worked out while listening to our own music on ipods? Some cry and complain when a WOD is about to start and the music “doesn’t feel right”. Some make requests. At the end of the day, the music played in the gym is not going to satisfy everyone. And it doesn’t matter. What matters is our hard-work and effort every time we walk through the doors! A few boxes ago, before Satellite Radio we had something Patty called the ‘Party Shuffle’. You couldn’t skip a track and had to take what you got, just like life. You might be sweating to ACDC one minute then have Frank Sinatra playing the next. It was interesting to say the least!
