Right now we’re 1/3 of the way into the 2011 CrossFit Games Open. While we were all crushing WOD #2 yesterday, though, I realized something.

To my knowledge (I could be wrong), we have never gotten together as a CrossFit Lakewood Competition Team to discuss how we tick. Each one of us, individually. What I mean by that is sharing with one another some pretty important things that we need/want/would like to have before, during and after our “Sectionals” workouts:

How do you like to warm up?
By yourself, in a group, alone and silent, social and talkative

How do you like to be judged during a workout?
Every rep counted out loud, leave me alone I count for myself, yell out every five reps

What kind of encouragement do you like during a workout?
Loud and proud, drill sergeant orders, quiet and encouraging, in your face cheering, people telling you how many reps to do, leave you alone

How do you like to be treated immediately following a workout?
High fives all around, group hug, give me a few minutes on the ground to recover, leave me alone until I remember where I am again

These questions may seem sort of trivial to some people, but to others, the workout environment can have a serious impact on one’s performance.

Do me a favor please, guys and gals. Take just a few seconds and reply in the Comments Section of this post and share your personal preference. That way, when next Saturday rolls around, we’ll all know how to best approach one another to create the best environment for our team!
