Crossfit has been a great motivator when is comes to living a healthy lifestyle. I believe that surrounding myself with a healthy support system who believe in the same ideas as I do is the best motivation to consistently eat healthy and train hard.  I’m a huge advocate when it comes to recovery &  listening to your body. I’m also a believer in this well known quote,
      “Practice makes PERMANENT.”
Poor form is great practice if you want poor form under heavy loads-but you will never get better that way.  Developing bad habits are detrimental to your future training.  I always train and advise with the mindset that doing what you can today is going to make you better in the long run,  and it does not matter whether you are deadlifting 5 lbs or 500 lbs, as long as you are doing it right and pushing your own personal limits.
