September 2015’s Newsletter

Good Morning,

It is often said of CrossFit boxes that the art is in the coaching, the science is in the workouts and the magic is in the community. Every time you come into The Hill it is important to us that you get in a great workout and perhaps learn a thing or two. But it is even more important that you make new friends and have a great time because that’s truly what keeps you coming back for more.

In this episode of The Hill Radio we discussed in-depth how to make strong friendships at The Hill. Here are a few things you can do in every class to make your time, and everyone else’s time, better:

  • Meet a new friend or learn one new thing about an old friend
  • Share equipment or space with a new friend
  • Ask the coach an in-depth question about that day’s WOD (they love being quizzed or can point you in the right direction)
  • Cheer for others the way you like to be cheered
  • High five every athlete in the class after the WOD

Of course these things are not mandatory, but they are sure to make you a better athlete and a better friend.
