Weaknesses. We all have them. Sometimes it’s a lack of strength, other times a lack of technique. Many movements in CrossFit demand not only strength and endurance, but also high levels of balance, coordination, and agility. We must always strive to strengthen those areas in which we fail. But we must be unflinchingly honest about where we fail and succeed, not for others, but for ourselves. It’s  never fun to work on a weakness, we’d much rather try to emphasize our strengths because we feel good about those areas in which we excel. But there is far more to be gained in your fitness by working on your weaknesses than your strengths.

The CrossFit community provides a supportive group of people that are eager to help you in any of your goals, take advantage of this opportunity. We’re all here to help each other become faster, stronger, and fitter. By suffering together, we build a bond, one like that found between fellow teammates and between fellow soldiers. This bond is why a CrossFitter can walk into any affiliate and feel welcome. This camaraderie is what truly changes many people’s lives.

My weaknesses right now are rowing, long distance running, double-unders, snatches, and thrusters.

What are your weaknesses? Post your thoughts to the comments.
