Crossfit is Powerful

Every day thousands of Crossfit Affiliates around the world gather together to celebrate fitness. Rain or shine, a.m. or p.m., thousands of people head to the gym to workout. At most affiliates, you’ll find people from different backgrounds, ethnicities, occupations, and skill levels working on their fitness. They are working on their fitness for different reasons. Some are working on their fitness to battle obesity and lose weight. Others are training for an upcoming local competition. Some use fitness as an outlet for stress relief, and a hobby that allows them to be the best version of themselves. Others are trying to get their first strict pull-up, or completing their first muscle-up. Regardless of where you go, you’ll find an individual with these types of motives for fitness. The beautiful thing about this, is that it shows diversity, and the power of Crossfit. It shows that people are different, but also united through the walls of an affiliate. It shows that no matter where an individual is in his or her athletic journey, there is always something to strive for because there is no such thing as perfect fitness or health. There is no end to fitness during our life. The end is when we die.

Crossfit means something different to every individual. Crossfit means pushing ourselves to be the best that we can. Crossfit means improving our fitness so that we can be healthier. Crossfit means battling addiction and saving someone from catastrophic life events. Crossfit means sharing memories with our peers, and our friends. Crossfit means showing yourself you can get stronger as you age, and still feel young. Crossfit means going to Regionals, or winning your first competition after countless hours in the gym. Wherever you go, Crossfit means something different to every individual member. Crossfit is powerful, and so are the people that participate. Join me in gratitude, as we celebrate excerpts from Sacramento ASAP as to why they Crossfit…

You guys are amazing and like a family to me.”

Dorian Medina, Coach “I Crossfit because it makes me feel free, it allows me to challenge myself to be the fittest and healthiest that I can be.”
