CrossFit is an empowering force.
Our Community makes it doubly so!
People generally aren't looking for a community when they head to the gym. Most places are set up for people to plug into their headphones, keep their head down and not make eye contact.
We're a little different. We socialize before and after class. We watch each other's kids. We get invited to birthday parties, housewarmings and weddings. We have social events that involve barbeques and booze.
This isn't by accident. This is by design. You want to push yourself harder when your name is on the line and your friends are watching. You want to do the right thing when people hold you to standards. You show up when people ask where you've been.
Folks are there to pick you up when you're down, whether it be because of a hard workout or because of life's little downers. That's what makes us different!
