The good stuff..
CrossFit is the good stuff.
But it’s not the good stuff because of the workouts, or the gym, or the pullups, or the tires. Those things can, honestly, be found anywhere. Programming takes some finesse, and a good trainer knows and remembers to tweak things constantly, trying to improve the skillset for each member. Having equipment most gyms don’t have is awesome. Being able to grunt and scream and throw it around is even better. Doing things in the box that globo-gyms won’t let you do…awesomesauce.
Even so, that’s not what makes CrossFit the good stuff.
The good stuff is you guys. The good stuff is your good natured “SQUIRREL!” pursuits. It’s you guys staying around and cheering on your peers. It’s y’all encouraging someone in the middle of the work out. The good stuff is you wanting to hang out away from the pain cave.
The camaraderie, the awareness, the positive energy…it’s all absolutely essential to our success as a group. The feeling of acceptance and comfort is what makes you want to come in and get UNcomfortable for just a little while. Knowing that people are there FOR you…well, it creates a sense of accountability and responsibility for the workout.
You guys and your willingness to get grimy are what makes this place so awesome.
So thank you for that…it means so very much more than you know.
