    This comment is an interesting one for me. The vast majority, if not all of my rather long experience with athletic instructors has been of the NOT practice what you preach variety, and it has worked out well. For example, in my early teens I learned to throw a football correctly from a former NFL quarterback who was in his mid 70s at the time. He could no longer pass very well, and didn’t really try, but he had superior knowledge and instruction technique and I picked it up well. With CrossFit everything seems to be completely different from any past experience, and this aspect is no exception. Here, I don’t pick up anything unless I see an instructor actually do it in person. Even looking at a CrossFit video done by an expert is no help. Even better is seeing one of the trainers doing a WOD at the same time. I have absolutely learned the most the few times I have partnered with Sarah L in one of the Part A weightlifting sections. So I would answer today’s comment with a definite yea, it seems, at least for me, to be very important in CrossFit.

    I am so much more motivated and tend to give more in a wod when one of the coaches is working out with us…its great to walk in and see Jamin or Mason catching thier breath from working out and getting ready to coach us, makes me think you guys just may be human after all:)
