Implementation part two: "We have learned that harness the natural camaraderie, competition, and fun of sport or game, yields an intensity that can not be matched by other means."
Intensity drives results: moving more load, more reps (distance), faster is what functional movements are all about and why CrossFit's methodology of mixing these parameters produces such a profound neuroendocrine response and motor control. Making intensity competitive encourages people to move more, further, and faster than without the element of competition.
Take this scenario: the basketball stadium erupts in a roar as the teams are tied point for point, the offense has the ball and 10 seconds left to take a shot and win the game. The offense knows this is their chance to take it all. The defense knows they have to step up. The stadium pressure is building. These are the moments where athletes must dig their deepest and bring their best. These moments are also almost un-replicate-able in a regular team or individual practice.
Biopsychosocial reactions happen in the body under this type of pressure. In CrossFit, we replicate these conditions to produce a better, faster, fitter person than in a relaxed environment seen at a Globo gym. Psychological benefits include; confidence and mental toughness. A sense of social belonging will also emerge. Improved performance goes hand in hand with health markers and psychological well-being.
