Here is a photo of Uli after today's WORKLOAD Comp Prep! Uli is one of the hardest workers I know. I've witnessed Uli improve on a daily basis. He went from having some of the slowest times on the board (as everyone who starts off has) to having one of the fastest time on almost every WOD. This is what hard work both in the gym and outside the gym gives you. 

This video shows how far CrossFit has come over the past few years. The video takes place over the 2008 CrossFit Season. Here we are coming up to the 2013 CrossFit Games season. For all you CrossFitters, take a look at this video to see the evolution of the sport. 

Every Second Counts takes an inside look at the CrossFit culture and community, where time on a stopwatch reigns as the supreme measure of performance. Those who reach the elite ranks in the burgeoning sport of CrossFit push themselves beyond limitations imposed by the mind and flirt with the limits of physical capacity. Human perseverance has never voluntarily gone this far.

The film chronicles the dramatic journey of five athletes as they prepare for and compete in the most comprehensive test of fitness on the planet, the CrossFit Games. The road to this grueling two-day program of extreme challenges reveals what it takes to be the best in the world. The climactic finish, with its surprising turn of events, shows beyond any doubt that the winner of the CrossFit Games is the fittest person on earth.
