The gym will be closed tonight due to the play. If you’re interested in going to see it, Friday’s show is sold out, and as of 11pm last night, there were 18 tickets left for Saturday’s show.
Come prepared tomorrow morning for the CrossFit Total.
“Break a leg” is a well-known saying in theatre which means “good luck”. It is typically said to actors before they go out onto stage to perform.
The expression reflects a theatrical superstition in which wishing a person “good luck” is considered bad luck. The expression is sometimes used outside the theatre as superstitions and customs travel through other professions and then into common use.

Do you ever see things as you’re walking around in your daily life and have thoughts like, “I wonder if I could do a pullup on that?” Or, “I bet I could overhead squat that thing”. Or, “Man, box jumping that would be awesome”.

“Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take it’s place. If I quit, however, it will last forever.” Lance Armstrong
So what do you think? Is all the pain and suffering worth it? I mean, when was the last time you seen someone at a Globo-gym with two burn marks on their arms? Or heard of someone spraining their ankle from working out? Or barfing out by the dumpster? Or having no skin on their shins or hands?

Could there be a better way to set yourself up for failure? As soon as you say, “I can’t”, you have just lost all hope of succeeding.
We’ve all encountered situations that are difficult, challengeing, and complicated in our lives. Imagine, saying I can’t before each one of them. Trying a foreign food, asking your wife to marry you, going down the black diamond trail, jumping out of an airplane, or pushing out 100 burpees for time. The only thing that can stop you from doing any of those is your mindset. As soon as you change it from “I can’t” to “I can”, a whole world of possibilities opens up to you.
Living life is all about accepting those challenges that are put in front of you. Recognizing that you CAN, even though it might be hard, time-consuming and painful. When you rise to the challenge and succeed, you’ll become overwhelmed with a great feeling of accomplishment. You’ll also discover things about yourself that you never knew.
I’ll leave you with a quote:
