Curtis Maggitt admits that after being an elite football player, the idea of competing in the CrossFit Open without any kind of performance expectations has been an adjustment. 

“As a competitor, I want to win,” he said. And while he’s very fit for the average person, he knows he’s not going to be competing with the best in the world in his first CrossFit Open this season. 

It has taken a mindset adjustment, but he has realized there’s more to the Open than being at the top. 

“Something I have acknowledged, too, is I don’t quite want to specialize in something to the level that I did with football, where you eat, breathe, sleep this one thing, and there’s honor in starting from the bottom,” said the 30-year-old Maggitt, a NOBULL sponsored athlete.
