10 CrossFit Quotes to Get You Through Your Next WOD

Sometimes, your WODs are going to suck. (I’m looking specifically in the direction of the Assault Air Bike, the newest torture device at my box and the one thing that makes me appreciate rowing.) Instead of whining through it, I try to look at the inspirational quotes on my knee sleeves and remember why I’m doing it. In the spirit of getting through a tough WOD, here are 15 CrossFit quotes to inspire you:

“Hiding from your weaknesses is a recipe for incapacity and error.” – Greg Glassman, Founder of CrossFit

Which probably means I should spend more time on the Assault Air Bike, right?

“If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you.” – Fred DeVito, executive vice president of mind body fitness programs

Aka why we set foot in the box.

“Sometimes it’s not about how good you are but how bad you want it.” – author unknown

This is for everyone who’s walked in to the box and had a weakness (can’t lift heavy, struggles with agility) but works to overcome it.

“Your mind will quit 100 times before your body ever does.” – author unknown

It’s all between the ears.

“If you still look pretty afterward, you didn’t do it right.” – author unknown

Especially in the summer. It’s going to get ugly – but it’s worth it.

“The greatest pleasure you’ll ever have is doing what others tell you you couldn’t.” – Walter Bagehot, British journalist, businessman, and essayist

Or, boiled down, “Don’t tell me what I can’t do.”

“First you feel like dying. Then you feel reborn.” – author unknown

Like a phoenix sometimes.

“Failure is not an option.” – Gene Kranz, retired NASA Flight Director and manager

I have a magnet from the Johnson Space Center on my fridge that says this. It’s kind of my life’s motto.

“Rather the pain of discipline, than the pain of regret.” – Bob Andrews

We regret NOT doing something.

“You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.” – Zig Ziglar, author, salesman, and motivational speaker

We all start somewhere.
