Want to be Motivated?

How about being able to Clean and Jerk your body weight 30 times?

At the ripe old age of 14 years old, Kallista Pappas (103#) shows what it means to be (have, exude..hard to describe) what Kohashi sensei would have called “senshin”.  Sensei described it to me by flooring me with a jo because I was loosing focus and messing with my grip instead of finishing a kata.  I’ll describe it to you by presenting the video above (taken at the 2008 CrossFit Games).

Pay attention to the girl in blue in the background of the opening shot.  She actually falls hard on the press and takes the bar on her shins…gets back up and finishes her last 7.  She finishes despite the pain, not losing focus, and giving everything she has to complete her task.  Senshin.

I know that I’m not tough, but now I know just how not tough I am.
