Great Work Competitors

Thanks to all our athletes who competed and those who came out to cheer everyone else on at the Texas Showdown. It was many people's first time competing in CrossFit and we hope this small taste will only increase your love of fitness and encourage you to push yourself even further. All of the coaches are extremely proud of our mighty group. Even when the workouts got tough, you all continued to fight. If for any reason you felt discouraged by your performance or maybe you didn't compete this weekend in fear of failure, please read the following: It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.

-Theodore Roosevelt

Everyone at our gym is capable of more than they can ever fathom. Rest up this weekend, and we will see you all Monday!
