A quotable moment on intensity from Crossfit Ignite

Recently I’ve noticed that, for the Crossfit movements I am familiar with, I am now able to really turn on the intensity and compete with the clock the way I do in rowing.   I expressed to my coach, Steve Macioci of Crossfit Ignite, that I also find the prospect of doing back-to-back race pieces on the water much less daunting mentally, because I am training with race-equivalent intensity almost every day instead of 1-2 times per week.  It’s much more “routine” vs. gearing up for a specific “race rehearsal” workout.  Steve said that “we train to become comfortable being uncomfortable”, and I thought this was a particularly concise and insightful comment.  Thanks Steve for your devotion to your box, the community, and the success of your athletes!
