This past week I was just talking about Community…our community, the CrossFit community. I realized in speaking about it, with a fellow CrossFitter, that I had a huge smile on my face and so did she. I was visiting Knockout CrossFit in Lawrenceville, GA a suburb of Atlanta, and it struck me, that really no matter where you go if there is a CrossFit, you have a built in Community. It is a community of like-minded individuals who accept outsiders whole heartedly and are genuinely happy to sweat with you and suffer through a WOD next to you and if you’re fortunate they’ll invite you out for dinner after.
This past week wasn’t the first time I experienced that. It happens in every box I’ve been too. CrossFitters are generally good natured people who want to see you succeed and are happy to help you. I don’t know anywhere else where you can find this. You’re certainly not going to find it in your globo gym. The majority of athletes who joined CrossFit were looking for something more. I know that was true for me and I not only found that but some of my best friendships have been forged in this CrossFit community.
Not only is there friendly competition here but there is a sense of family. This great big CrossFit family that just keeps growing! Next week we graduate a new class of On-Rampers into the “Big Room”. If you get the chance welcome them and show them what CrossFit is really about. Welcome them into our Family…our CrossFit Community.
As Crossfitters, we are willing to train like animals, eat like cavemen, and make tons of sacrifices to achieve our goals. When it comes down to taking care of our bodies, we typically wait until a significant injury occurs before we even consider seeing a chiropractor. I was guilty of this as well. About 2 years ago I began seeing Dr. B. When I first started I would go maybe once a week or every other week for an adjustment. This lasted for a few months, and then I just stopped going because my body was feeling better. This was a huge mistake on my behalf. The work that she was doing was allowing me to train at the level that I demanded from my body.
I love Albany CrossFit and I am proud to be a part of this amazing community. I am honored to share in the accomplishments of our members. We as a community have to deal with an issue many of us would like to not talk about. Some have ignored this problem for far too long.
I am talking about cleaning up after us. It is a simple skill that we should all practice. Here are 5 easy steps to help keep the gym neat, organized and clean.
1) Wipe your equipment down when you are done with it
2) Put your equipment away when you are done with it.
3) Help your neighbors put away their equipment when you are done with yours.
4) Keep chalk on your hands or in the bucket. It should not be on the ground.
5) Check to make sure you properly stored your equipment before you leave. This includes lax balls, bands, and foam rollers.
