In our day-to-day endeavors at the gym, as coaches, we have many things that a lot of gyms and businesses would be really jealous of. We share in the victories and challenges that you all face each day.
But here is the kicker, you guys grind it out day-in and day-out because you want to, not because you have to. There is no monetary reward for what you do. This consistency is intrinsic, and is what makes it so beautiful to watch and be a part of.
You guys show the heart and determination that I have only seen in organized athletics. The type of work ethic where you don’t want to let the guy or girl next to you down. Work ethic where you push yourself to the brink of failure, to complete exhaustion, and sometimes to the point of barfing.
We as coaches may not express it enough, but you make our jobs so rewarding. The thing that pushes what we have here to the next level is our community. And that is one hundred percent you guys!
In the past few weeks we have seen so many inspiring pictures, videos and posts from you guys. Here are a few of them: “There’s No Crying in CrossFit”, “How to Become a Better American in 39 Minutes”, “CrossFit Confessions”.
We would not trade you guys for the world. Thank you for those of you that have shared what this place means to you, and we know there are a whole lot more of you than we displayed here!
