Kristan Clever speaks on Going Rx'd, Motivation, and Competition

2010 CrossFit Games champion Kristan Clever has her own interpretation of the “scale as needed” rider for CrossFit WODs: attempt them at the RX'd weight without considering whether they’re intended for men or women. For Clever, who dominated the 2010 Games, the next challenge is to use the RX'd weight or the men's weight whenever it's given.

Challenges are something an elite performer like Clever must chase to develop her performance further, and after finding CrossFit, working out alone just wasn't challenging enough for the SoCal athlete. According to Clever, “I don't think you push as hard on your own as much as you try to, as much as you want to. As much as you imagine there's people there next to you, it's not the same.”

After joining an affiliate, she progressed by working out alongside other athletes at Valley CrossFit. Find out how Clever motivates herself through competition and just how hard each workout is—even for the Games winner.
