Beat yesterday.

Those two words have been a consistent theme for 2016 for the Compete community. The idea of competing against the person we were yesterday is a tried and true blueprint for success. It is not one that happens overnight. Each competitor is like a sculptor molding a work of art. Each day is spent chipping away at layers, refining the edges, and working the mold toward the shape the artist has in mind. Like the artist, we do a little bit more today than we did yesterday.

We push our workouts just a little bit harder. We serve in our relationships a little bit more. We inch out of our comfort zone – and toward our goals – a little bit more every day. Until we get there. Which, you know as well as I do, doesn’t truly exists. Because when we get there, we raise the bar, set a new goal, and start again, more confident in ability to repeat our success a second, third, or fourth time.

Have you reached the goals you’ve set for 2016? Great for you. That’s an amazing accomplishment, but now is the time to set your sights higher, bite off more than you can chew, and set out toward a new goal.

Did you fall short of one – or all – of the goals you’ve set for 2016? Failure happens. But lying there, wallowing in self-pity isn’t allowed. And I don’t for one second believe you are done yet.

Win or lose, I believe you aren’t even close to being done yet – for this year and for this life. It’s too early to coast & rest on your laurels. And it’s always too early to give up. There is work to be had.


Our newest preorder release is just in time for the upcoming 2016 CrossFit Regionals, marathon season, the NFL Draft, and MLB Opening Day. You’ve made it this far, but we both know you aren’t close to being done yet.

We’ve limited our new release to the first 100 orders only. This preorder will ship May 6, 2016.

Click here to be one of the lucky 100.
