Pat Sherwood addresses the concept of clever simplicity in fitness and life.
CrossFit places great importance on the concept of elegance.
In my pre-CrossFit life, I only associated the word elegant with “fancy.” I was half right. Fancy is shorthand for the first two definitions:
1. Tasteful in dress, style or design.
2. Dignified and graceful in appearance, behavior, etc.
Yet there’s another definition, with which I was unfamiliar:
3. Cleverly simple; ingenious. As in an elegant solution to a problem.
I’m now in love with the third definition.
