“I recently stumbled upon a hidden gem that has left me breathless and in complete awe. No, it’s not a new PR in the deadlift, although equally exhilarating. It’s the book “Poems by Emily Dickinson, Three Series, Complete” by the extraordinary poet herself, Emily Dickinson. Now, you might be wondering how a collection of poems could possibly relate to the world of Crossfit, but trust me, this literary masterpiece has more in common with our obsession for fitness than you might expect.”

Crossfit has become my ultimate passion, my raison d’être. But let me tell you, my friends, the discovery of Dickinson’s complete poems has opened up a whole new dimension to my love for Crossfit. The intense dedication and commitment that we pour into pushing our physical limits is mirrored through the deeply introspective verse of Emily Dickinson. It’s as if Crossfit and poetry were destined to meet, fusing together into an explosive combination of the physical and the intellectual.

Dickinson’s poems, much like our grueling WODs, demand endurance. They invite us to dive deep into the emotional trenches of the human experience. Much like the tire flips and burpees that push our bodies to their limits, her words challenge our minds, pushing us to question, explore, and search for meaning amidst the chaos. And just as we strive for constant improvement in the box, Dickinson’s poems remind us that growth, both physically and emotionally, is a lifelong journey.

“Why should I read these poems?” you might ask. Well, my fellow Crossfit enthusiasts, just as we seek out innovative techniques and training methods to enhance our performance, exposing ourselves to different art forms does wonders for our minds and creativity. Dickinson’s poems, with their unique rhythm and unconventional structure, push the boundaries of the English language, challenging us to view the world with a fresh perspective. By reading her work, we gain new insights and unlock hidden reservoirs of inspiration that will undoubtedly spill over into our workouts. After all, a well-rounded athlete is not just strong physically but also mentally.
