“Know When to Fold ‘Em” 30 June 2016
We usually talk about something really exercisey here.
Well today we will will skip the exercisey, but still talk about CrossFit.
While an essential focus of CrossFit is exercise and sound human mechanics, there is another less verbalized theme that CrossFit stands for that is equally important and that is the idea of community. The idea of Others.
We have witnessed first hand the power of Others in our gym. The power to push us past our limits, the power to get us to do things we didn’t think we were capable of, the power to check on us and hold us accountable to our goals. The power of Others is virtually limitless and you have done well to find a way to use that power to excel.
Today we have the opportunity to share what we have discovered with some other Others. Today YOU have the opportunity to motivate, encourage, and support those friends you have been begging to come see what CrossFit Breaux Bridge and CrossFit St. Landry is all about.
Today is about joy, and sharing that joy. Have Fun!!
