If you’ve been doing CrossFit long enough, there have probably been times where you want to quit. Maybe it’s been a particularly tough workout. Or, maybe you got injured. Or, maybe you decided the daily grind is just not worth it anymore.
For me, the only thing that makes me want to quit CrossFit is getting a massage.
My massages are deep tissue massages, and I have a lot of knots in my shoulders.
Lately, my left lat has been super tight.
My massages are painful — super painful. I clench my teeth and bare it because I know it helps. But during the entire massage session, I constantly wonder why I CrossFit.
One day, I’d like to know what a regular massage feels like; the type of massage that actually feels good.
What about you? What makes you wan to quit CrossFit?

Lately, I’ve been battling a shoulder “injury.” The problem is that it’s not truly injured. It is having problems because it’s insanely tight.
I went to my massage guy and told him I needed my lats and shoulders worked on. Let’s just say every moment hurt, and it’s still tight. My chiropractor is working on my shoulders, too. You know it’s bad when you roll out and can feel the knots rolled over, and they don’t leave.
This is the crappy part of CrossFit — the physical toll it takes on your body. And, as you age, this toll does not get better.
I love CrossFit, but wish it did not hurt so much. I truly have no idea what a normal massage feels like; mine always hurt like hell. I’m sore almost every day of my life. Or, something is tweaked. And, to top that all off, I don’t even like the way my body looks any more cause I think I’m too chunky.
So, why I keep doing this, I don’t know.
Here’s where I get massages in case you are interested, and subscribe to my YouTube Channel for more great content today!
I got a massage last weekend.
When I tell people this, they usually say, “Oh, nice!”
I respond, “It was far from nice.”
THE TRUTH OF A CROSSFIT MASSAGE
When you CrossFit and you get a massage, it’s far from a fluff, “feel good” massage where you are gently rubbed all over and you leave feeling relaxed. Instead, you spend good money to be gritting your teeth, cussing in your mind, and trying not to scream “stop” because the pain is that intense.
These are my deep pressure massages. I hate them with a passion. They absolutely, 100% suck, and I can’t believe I pay my hard-earned money to be in pain.
But I do. Every month.
Because it’s the only way I can move.
Afterwards, even though I’m sore from my massage for days, the mobility I regain is worth it.
Still, paying for pain seems like the ultimate oxymoron. Contact me for CrossFit SEO services today.
