25 signs that you lift big and eat big….My favorite one, “After a day of heavy 5×5, walking down stairs is the hardest task imaginable” – so true! Post your favorite to comments!
I’m reading Purpose Driven Life and last week, I read a chapter on Cultivating a Community. The deeper I got into the chapter, the more I realized it perfectly describes the environment at our CrossFit. People ask me all of the time what our CrossFit is like, and the first thing I tell them is, “It houses an awesome group of people, and we have a great community.” It’s hard to explain because in reality, it’s something you have to experience.
Now, before you decide I’ve got an express ticket on the sentimental, hokey train, go visit another CrossFit box, and you quickly see, our CrossFit is really unique and special. I am by no means knocking other affiliates – there are so many great boxes out there, and every time I visit another one, I really appreciate how awesome our gym is. Every single person at our box has enriched our community, and the cool thing is, as we continue to grow, our group is more enriched.
In Purpose Driven Life, there are 9 characteristics of a successful community that helped me see why our box is so special. “We share our true feelings (authenticity), encourage each other (mutuality), support each other (sympathy), forgive each other (mercy), speak the truth (honesty), admit our weaknesses (humility), respect our differences (courtesy), not gossip (confidentiality), and make the group a priority (frequency).
When you look a the list of characteristics, it’s obvious why genuine fellowship is so rare. It means giving up our self-centeredness and independence in order to become interdependent.”
We are one team. Community requires commitment, and each one of us has shown up daily, encouraged others and pushed each other to make one great team!
