Why do I do CrossFit?
I was reflecting on why I love this place so much and ended up with a list of 21 reasons why.
I think if a fellow CrossFitter gave it some thought, they would discover that we do CrossFit for similar reasons.
Here they are
I do CrossFit because…
I love the people that I workout with.
I am held accountable by my fellow coaches and members.
I get to suffer, grow, and better myself next to the people that I love the most.
I love the feeling I get when I am done with a workout. For me, it is always worth it.
I don’t have to think. I can turn my brain off and be told what to do.
I know I will be done in 45 minutes to an hour.
I can compete against my fiancé - she wins some… I win most… :)
I trust the coach who is leading the class.
My dog can be with me - she gets a thousand pets per day.
I love the atmosphere.
The people working out next to me understand what I am going through and vice versa.
I love what it has done to my body.
I have seen that any age, body type, and skill level can do it.
I am frequently challenged and pushed to be better.
My progress is perfectly measurable and is a direct product of my effort.
I know that everybody working out next to me is getting better in their own way.
I like giving and getting hi-fives. I would hug you if y’all weren’t so sweaty.
I am often times proud of myself for finishing particularly challenging workouts.
I am always proud of what my friends are accomplishing.
I love coaching people through tough moments and seeing them succeed.
I can be myself.
