The Vital Signs

“Is your heart still pumping? Are you still breathing? Good. You will pass out first before you die.” That’s what Doug Chapman of Hyperfit USA (the box Julie Foucher trains at) told to coach Ismael at his CrossFit Level 1 Certification in Toronto. D-Chap is the head coach there and also CrossFit Level 1 Instructor for CFHQ. He’s a blast to be around. And all around great guy. He is also an Olympic Lifting Coach. During the WOD at the Cert (it was a 10 minute AMRAP) coach felt like most CrossFitters do, arms and legs fried, on autopilot, while the brain says shut up and keep going. Next time you’re doing work and you feel like you can’t make it just remember “You will pass out first before you die.”
