It's the little things… whiteboards

It’s the little things…


“Okay class grab a whiteboard to keep track of your rounds and reps!”

Everyone heads over to grab their whiteboard, scribbling shorthand for the workout, and writing a bunch of dashes representing rounds yet to be completed.
As coaches, we have seen our fair share of organized whiteboards that are easy to follow. Those athletes are the first to respond their scores at the end of the workout.

There are those who draw on their whiteboard, maybe to keep them inspired, or reminders for what the movement is…

Maybe it’s a reminder to keep going, take a breath.

Maybe you leave a message for the end of the workout…survival or a feeling of death?

And then there’s those athletes who simply erase all of their dashes as they complete a round, only to be surprised at the end when they don’t know the exact number of rounds they completed.

“Hey Zack, what’d you get?”
“Um… 10ish something, oh I don’t know, it was one less than Smith?”

It’s important that you know as an athlete what you accomplished in the given time. We all CrossFit to become healthier, happier and more fit humans. To be better Moms, Dads, Sisters, Brother, Uncle, Aunt, Grandma, Grandpa, Friend, Husband, Wife, Human Being. Knowing what we have accomplished will make us better.
