Implementation Part Two "We've learned that harnessing the natural camaraderie, competition, and fun of sport or game yields an intensity that cannot 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 they normally would 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 make a shot and win the game. Athletes on the court know that this is their chance, and the encouragement from the stadium is amplifying by the second. This is an intense environment that can build up (or take down) competitors. These moments are almost un-replicate-able in a regular team or individual practice.
Biopsychosocial responses in the body will be amplified by applying this sort of exciting environment to fitness. The body will do more, better, and faster than in a relaxed environment. 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.
