“Everybody hits the wall. Everybody.”
Demanding CrossFit WODs challenge bodies, but they also challenge hearts and minds. You simply have to be motivated enough to pick up the bar one more time even though your muscles are burning. Some athletes have endless stores of motivation, while others benefit from outside influence.
A great trainer can help drive you when your own motivation is failing, and Todd Widman of The Boz and Todd Experience is more than willing to provide the encouragement.
In this video filmed at Rainier CrossFit, Widman works with athletes during a front squat/double-under/run WOD. Offering technique tips and passionate encouragement, Widman helps a group of women push themselves to give their best performances.
Adrian (Boz) Bozman and Todd Widman are two of CrossFit’s top trainers. They spend a significant portion of their time traveling around the country working the CrossFit Level 1 and Level 2 certification seminars.
