There are really only 2 types of athletes when it comes to integrity, those who have it and those who don’t. Yes, I believe that you fit in to 1 of 2 categories. But remember, you can always change. The first step is admitting you have a problem.
There will be CrossFitters who cut corners, go through the motions, and are okay with not fully completing a task. There will be those that might lie just a little and only some of the time. Big cheating, small cheating, big lies, little lies, cutting some corners or just one, missing a lot of reps or a few reps, IT IS ALL THE SAME.
This topic has been discussed lots of times throughout the CrossFit community and people often say “who really cares, because that person is just cheating themselves and their results.” But maybe, just maybe, this article will help some individuals recognize what type of athlete they are, and the type of athlete they want to become.
When I am watching athletes or coaching it is VERY easy to tell what type of person I would want to surround myself with, who I would trust, and which athlete I would want on my team. What type of athlete are you? Are you okay with it?

Jeff Tucker. My, my, my. Where do I even start with this one? Jeff Tucker is semi famous in my world. Jeff Tucker, up until this point, has been a mystical, elusive creature in my mind. Kind of like a unicorn. Yes, a unicorn. (Goodness, I hope he doesn’t read this. Ha!) Jeff Tucker is an icon to me, thus, he’s earned the status of being called by his first AND last name at all times. It’s kind of like Harrison Ford. Listen, I’m not gonna call that guy Harrison. It’s just not happening. He is Harrison Ford. Period. Jeff Tucker is Jeff Tucker. Period.
Why is he famous in my world? Well, because he’s quite possibly one of the coolest guys ever. He’s done some pretty rad stuff in his lifetime. But, more specifically, he is the head honcho in the CrossFit Gymnastics world. That’s how I initially became familiar with him. And, if you don’t CrossFit, this likely means nothing to you. But, if you do CrossFit, well… you can understand my fanaticism. CrossFit is, basically, a cult. It’s taken the world by storm in recent years. As with any sport, it’s best coaches and athletes are famous. Jeff Tucker is basically a ninja at coaching one of CrossFit’s most technical, difficult facets: gymnastics. Thus, making him famous to me.
Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s talk about the good ol’ boy side of Jeff Tucker. The first time I met him, he was doing a little mini gymnastics clinic at a CrossFit gym in Brownwood, Texas. It was super awesome. And, guess what he wore to teach a gymnastics clinic?!? Jeans and a denim shirt. Yep. Even when a cowboy does something so far outside the world of cowboy, they still wear jeans and a denim shirt?!? Man oh man.
The second time I met Jeff Tucker was at Gore Bros. I’m standing behind the counter one fine afternoon, and I hear the chime of the door alerting me to someone coming in. I look up, and there walking toward me is Jeff Tucker. I stumble over my words like a giddy little schoolgirl, “You’re Jeff Tucker!” He looks at me like I’m crazy. And, I likely am.
“How do you know?” he asks.
Apparently, this is not an exclamatory phrase with which he is accustomed. Or maybe he’s playing it cool. Who knows?!?
“You’re famous,” is my reply. And, there again, I stumble over my words when I explain to him how I know him. He buys his round bale of hay, and he’s on his way. What he doesn’t know, however, is that after he left, I told each and every coworker that would listen (or not) about the famous Jeff Tucker.
