Be Strong!


“Be Strong!” Your fellow CrossFitters shout as you begin your last few reps. “Be Strong!” Their cheers fade away as you dig in and focus on your last few reps.

What does it mean to be strong? For some, it’s a battle cry and for others, it’s merely a slogan. Confidence, motivation, and determination are all manifestations of this concept. Whether it’s mental or physical, the energy this statement imparts can be a powerful motivator to an athlete—especially a CrossFit athlete.

As athletes, maybe be strong helps reminds us that with a little fortitude, we can face difficult challenges and get through them successfully.

“That which does not kill us makes us stronger.”
– Friedrich Nietzshce
