“When you think of an athlete, you think of someone who is strong, independent and confident. I think people need confidence to be an athlete, so find something that suits you and if there isn’t something that fits you per se, MAKE SOMETHING. You had people who could do lots of power cleans and then climb a rope, now you’ve got Cross Fit. If you like something and you’re good at it, there’s probably a whole group of people interested in the same thing, you’re not the only one. Being an athlete is seeing what you want and doing it. Be confident.” [source]
