We all chose CrossFit for various reasons...some for a healthy approach toward our future; to be able to spend quality time with our children & grandchildren! We also do it because it challenges us mentally and physically. Our athletes say it carries over to sport in such a way that no other training program has offered. As well, people that risk there lives everyday while saving others do it because it gives them a better chance of survival. We all have reasons why we show up to class and give it our all. No matter what is going on in our lives, we enter the box with respect and we face the workout because we are completely aware that CrossFit fitness makes our lives better. Everyone of us had a choice to make day one when you walked in to the school of fitness. You may have been a great athlete before showing up or you may have been on a downward slope living the unhealthy lifestyle that most North Americans live. The beauty is, that Day One, no matter where you were coming from you faced a challenge. You may have puked, went in to shock, cried, or had a panic attack. Or perhaps it was too much and your ego got crushed and we have not seen you since, whatever! Today is the day that we face the first introduction / assessment to CrossFit all over again. Happy Day 1 folks!
