Occasionally I get asked where I come up with all the things I write about on this blog. The answer is simple: from watching all of you throughout the day. I observe your movements, attitudes, interactions, and of course your performances in the gym on a daily basis, and frequently I see someone do something that will inspire me to wax philosophical or generally pontificate on some profound CrossFit principle as it applies to life, liberty, and the pursuit of fitness.

Sometimes I see inspiration that I want to spotlight for everyone, and sometimes I see horrible acts of mechanical laziness that I want to make sure everyone knows to avoid. Other times I see downright goofiness that I just want to poke fun at. I always make an effort to hide the source of the inspiration (especially if it’s something I’m complaining about) but apparently I’m not that good at it because more than once I’ve come in to the gym to hear someone say, “you wrote today’s post about ME, didn’t you?”

But one thing I’ve noticed is that whatever the topic, the posts seem to resonate in some fashion with all of you, and that’s exactly what I’m going for. If you think I wrote the post about you, then there was something in it you needed to hear, and I did, in fact, write it for you.

So keep on reading this blog and gleaning bits of wisdom on how to be a better CrossFitter, and keep on doing what you’re doing everyday at the gym so I’ll continue to have stuff to make fun of transform into helpful coaching advice.
