Moment of Awesomeness: 2/15/11

Reading articles can be really helpful to many people. The words will resonate, and the information is retained.

I have a short attention span, however… so I like using “moving pictures”, also known as movies, to tell stories.
Check out this video, the story of Jay Rhodes, and how CrossFit has helped him come back from his days of being an elite athlete, to being “Fat Jay” as he called himself, back to an animal again.

After the last “Transformation” story I posted on this blog about “The Unconquerable Dave”, this story has a different feel. In Dave’s story, he lost 100 pounds and changed his life (and lifestyle) forever!

Knowing less about Jay’s story (which is still very impressive), it’s just a different kind of jump from before to after. He has taken his athletic ability from “normal person good”, to now being an incredible athlete and CrossFitter! These are two very inspiring men, and I hope you can take this video and see just what’s possible when you keep on pushing and never give up!
