An Interview with Christy Phillips at the Rogue vs. Again Faster Throwdown
One Top CrossFitter Discusses Fear
For the past two years, Christy Phillips has been one of the top female CrossFitters in the world. She finished in 6th in both the 2009 and 2010 CrossFit Games. Christy competed for the victorious Team Rogue at the Rogue vs. Again Faster Tahoe Throwdown.
CrossFit has taught her about how to deal with fear. People who start CrossFit usually don't understand what they're getting themselves into. As they continue CrossFitting, they become more competitive and start to fear workouts.
According to Christy, it's acceptable to feel fear going into a workout, but "when you start, you've got to be fearless." Christy is working on not slowing down during the final minutes of a workout, even when she sees that she is behind her competitors.
