How Do you Explain CrossFit

How Do you Explain CrossFit

Compliments of Practice Crossfit….

When your questioned about where you workout at, what do you say to explain CrossFit? Try some of these the next time someone asks. -I train in a box. It has walls…sometimes. Sometimes we go outside. Sometimes we meet elsewhere. Its not the location I value, its the people. -I train in an open space, because bars and my training partners fly everywhere. There is not equipment in the way, only my friends near me as we all struggle together, and are rewarded all the same. -I train in a warehouse with no air conditioning and big garage doors. If you didn’t know where it was, you would never find it. There is no sign outside. The signs of training are all inside, working, or helping one another. -I train where advertising is sacrilege. I train where I am a walking advertisement. -I train with people I truly enjoy, and would do anything for, not where I need to put ear phones in to block out all the annoying banter. When we go, we hear yells, trainers instructing, or loud ass music making us go even harder…not elevator bullshit. Real music. -I train in a place where if I am negative, I will be addressed by at least one person about my stupid ass attitude, and if I am unlucky enough on that day, I may be asked to leave, and come back when Im better, because I am effecting the core by my stupid ass baggage that is meant to be burned at the door. -I train where if I want to keep my shirt on I can….but there are no rules saying I have to. Where I train if someone disrobes to any level, wears short ass shorts, or is quasi naked after a WOD thats fine…no attention will be paid, because its all about the training, not about meat markets. If you want a pick up joint, look elsewhere. -I train where Im valued and truly appreciate for showing up and putting forth true, real, demanding effort.

-I train where I am judged on my movements and attitude everyday. Not because my friends are assholes, because they truly want to make me better at life, and want success for me not injury. A piss poor performance means someone will care enough to help me make it better, and find out why it happened to begin with. -I train in a place void of gossip. Rumors are unwelcome at all times and if I was stupid enough to ever spout anything negative, or even just not positive about one of my training partners, or any other training location for that matter, I would be crucified on the spot, by any and all in ear shot. Drama queens are eaten alive where I train. -I train where everyone applauds when I do well, and I applaud for them. -I train where justification is lucifer, and honesty is gospel. For if I lie, I only fail myself.

-I train where I am confronted everyday by food Nazis who wont allow me to eat shit and call it gold. Where I train we call bad, bad, quality, quality and everything in between sub-par. Where I train life happens, the difference is, here I have to confront my downfalls and improve not hide them away for tomorrow. -I train to be better at life. The unknown and unknowable. To one day be able to help someone less fortunate than I. To be able to be moving on my own when I’m old and gray, not being moved. -I train because I want the mirror to be an outward reflection of how I feel inside, which is pretty damn good, and I want it to stay that way. -I train because laziness sickens me, and preventable disease is exactly that…preventable through effort, not medication. -I train to be different than those before me. To go out swinging, not resting. To live valiantly, not cowardly. -I train where the floor could double as a pool at times because people actually work hard. I don’t care, that’s how it should be. -I train with football players, grandmas, kids, housewives, doctors. -I train with people of every walk of life, and if I cared about status…someone would make me leave. -I train where education daily is paramount, and if I’m not a constant student, I will fail quickly. -I train where we are all equal, because we truly are. The only thing that separates people is the attitude to believe this is true or not. The ones who believe they are better than others, are so much better….they aren’t allowed to train with me. -I train with people that make my day better. -I train in a place where I want to be, not a place I feel I have to be. -I train under expectations. Expectations to be better than yesterday.

-I train in a community dedicated to the whole. The success of the many. this is the reason we all change and progress so fast. Where I train its not about “I”….its about “us” I train….WHAT THE HELL Do you DO?

  1. I do crossfit! After a year and a half of finding my cf passion, I finally got my husband to join. He is finally understanding why its somewhere I go everyday. Why I want to socialize with the same people I train with. Why I love that my 2 year old rowed 12 meters and can do a burpee!! So fun to hit up an open WOD together and be surround by positive peeps.

  2. Love it!!

  3. Love it Jody!!!!! oh… and my stuff on the board is wrong… it needs to show that I did knee pushups also…. I train so that no matter what, i know I can do better and go harder. I love the fact that when i feel alone I can come to kick some ass and have so many people there that actually care. Some days I just need a smile. I know that all of you are bad ass. It feels good to know I can count of someone to yell at me when I am doing something wrong and say good job when I have put it all out there and still have a few seconds left to push through. and of course there is nothing like watching all the kids in the box love jumping on boxes, running, doing pull ups, and just play together… Our kids kick ass, they are the future of Pearland Crossfit!!!!
