07/30/10 – Go for a Goal!


  • No 6pm classes on Friday’s for the rest of the summer
  • No 12pm or 4:30pm classes next week

The First Rule of CrossFit 908 NO CHEATING – I have been thinking about this topic recently and how to present it properly without offending anyone.  Then I thought if you’re not cheating you probably want me to post this because it is annoying when people cheat, so I’m just going to make it very simple.  If you are physically capable of completing ALL of the prescribed reps through the FULL RANGE OF MOTION, and you choose to either cut reps or cut range of motion, you are cheating.  This post is not meant to point fingers or be accusatory, but just be aware that I count reps while you are working out.  I may not be able to get everyone’s reps all the time, but I make sure I’m watching.  From now on if I catch someone deliberately cheating just to move faster in a workout, that person will get an email warning. Second offense gets addressed in person.  Third offense and that person will be asked to leave the gym indefinitely.  As owner and trainer, I am responsible for teaching proper form and range of motion.  Those two points are priority during workouts.  I know some people might lose count during a workout or get so frustrated that they want to just move on to the next exercise.  You need to let me know.  I will work with you if something is too much.  Again, this post is not meant to be harsh or accusatory, but I wouldn’t post it if it weren’t a problem already. There are standards at CrossFit 908.  Please help to uphold them.  Thank you.

P.S. – I am gone for a week.  Pat will be on the lookout for proper range of motion and correct rep counting.  NO CHEATING

  1. Who said these?! And dont Cheat!! ;0)

    “I would prefer even to fail with honor than to win by cheating”

    “It is impossible for a man to be cheated by anyone but himself.”

    “Cheating is often more efficient”

    and of course,

    “Cheaters never win and winners never cheat! “

    1. What about this one…

      Cheaters always win!

      I like to use that one when I cut someone in traffic…. but not at Crossfit! 🙂

  2. Ha! Cheating is often more efficient! I don’t think that was the message Tim was going for…
