Flying Solo

Jon 7 Jon Levy has recently stopped in to get a couple workouts in on his own. They happened to be 2 really  tough WOD's. The "Filthy Fifty" and "Eva" will both test your will.  Besides his great performances on both, I was most impressed by his willingness to do these alone. 

I have a tough time doing "Metcon" workouts on my own. I will simply push harder with company. I like the support of someone cheering me on and I like knowing someone is fighting the same battle with me. The tougher the workout, the more I embrace company.

As a whole, CrossFit is a group fitness program. Most of us find comfort in going through tough physical challenges with other people. We are sharing a common goal. We are feeding of each other's energy and drive. We know if we fall, there is someone there to pick us up. Still others may find training solo suites them better. Is this a personality difference that shows in choosing individual vs. team sports? Does the competitive nature of CrossFit motivate you? Do you  feel "pressure" in keeping up when others are around you?

    Thanks for the shout out, Dan. But let it be known that even if no one else was doing the same workout, there were always people shouting encouragements or helping with timing or what have you. It does make a big difference.

    I remember one of my first workouts at Windy City CrossFit in Chicago (in fact, I think it was my very first): Back Squat 5-5-5. There were only two racks, so we effectively all took turns and cheered each other on. I did 225 for my last set, and knowing that there were a handful of people watching (and ready to spot!) made all the difference. It didn't matter to me whether they were doing the same workout at the same time.

    Jon, Yes I totally agree that having people around to encourage you is a big plus. Rest assured, anytime someone is there, they'll be pushing you on. "Eva" is horrible! Very strong work Jon!
