If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. As the Scripture says, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame.” For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
Build up your weaknesses until they become your strong points.
– Knute Rockne, 1888-1931, American Football Coach
What are your weaknesses? It doesn’t always have to be a physical weakness. We all have our struggles and many times we get so consumed with the stress of our own daily routines that we don’t even realize that the person next to us really needs a little support. Put the needs of someone else ahead of yours today. Offer your support to a friend. Now, back to the physical weaknesses – get in the gym and set a goal to conquer and crush that weakness today!
“We do your stuff nearly as well as you do, you can’t do ours very well at all, and we can do everything we both don’t do better than you can. Not very humble, I know, but true.”
To summarize – Coach Glassman is making reference to specialized training and to the fact that CrossFitters combine every aspect of fitness into our routines. How many runners do you know that can squat or deadlift any amount of weight…not to mention one pull-up. How many weightlifters (strictly lift weights) do you know that can even run around the block? Not many! That’s what separates CrossFit from every other approach to fitness. We might not be the fastest or strongest but we excel in our approach to overall fitness. This reminds me of a saying that I read somewhere that stuck in my mind ….”Hey dude I know you can lift that weight but can you do it with a heart rate of 190?”
If you make these meatballs bring us a couple to the gym!
Have a great day
