What an incredible 5 weeks we’ve had! I’m consistently beside myself with the support shown by and within our community. Let’s get one thing clear: this place would not exist without each of you. You’re the reason your coaches peel themselves out of bed before the sun comes up and stick around after class to chat & get to know you better. Community is often something attempted, but never realized. There’s an intangible “it” that occurs when nearly one hundred people band together in competition, support, and wellness. It’s more than tacos and burpees; it’s a diverse group of people all striving to be the best versions of themselves. It’s giving, sharing, and realizing that we’re all a sum of our parts. Thank you for such a rich experience.
Community is a delicate petri dish of supportive, like-minded individuals. We’ve always believed that it grows best organically and from within. Although this road has been slow and rocky, it was one of our non-negotiables. We’ve passed on countless opportunities for a quick buck and fast growth. It’s not our thing. So now we look to you, the community.
All next week you have the opportunity to “Fit it Forward.” Every Facebook and Instragram post, every high-five you received is another opportunity to show someone else the inspiration and motivation that can only be found from such a supportive group of folks.
It’s simple: bring a friend. Every CrossFit class from Mar 30th-April 5th we’re opening our doors to your friends, family, and co-workers. Show them what you’ve been doing, how far you’ve come, and why you won’t shut up about your CrossFit Community. No pressure. No sales. Just friends sweating together.
Been bit by the bug?
For many of you, the Open has given you an extra dose of motivation to pursue excellence. For others, it showed you some holes in your game.
