I believe CrossFit is just like the old TV show 'Cheers'? You remember the theme song, “Making your way in the world today takes everything you’ve got. Taking a break from all your worries, sure would help a lot. Wouldn’t you like to get away? Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name, and they’re always glad you came. You wanna be where you can see, our troubles are all the same.”
Our lives are compiled of great days and horrible days. Some days we are stressed out to the max, other days are just okay, but in any case it is nice to be surrounded by friends and family. On a great day you want to share
your excitement and when life strikes you with a low blow you need to be surrounded by support. Our community at CrossFit 818 is becoming the 'Cheers' of your life but instead of booze we have barbells.
Day in and day out, one thing I look forward to is going to the box. I
consider everyone at the box my friends and extended family. This box is a place where I can celebrate victories or help pick me up after suffering a loss. When I don’t make it to the box, I miss it. There is something special about being surrounded by people that have very similar goals and values, especially when they are so positive. I now find it hard to hang or be around non-CrossFitters. CrossFitters live life big, they don’t watch it pass on by.
In the last 531 days (actual days since the first WOD) I have gone through plenty of life changing moments with a lot of you. From the crazy PR's in class, witnessing many 1st pullups, to pool parties, challenges, lunch pumps, funny facebook pics, the 1 year anniversary party, or just hanging out on a random Saturday night and all of a sudden 15 CF'ers show up. I have made friends I feel like I have known for years. Each day I am blessed to come to a place and feel like I am living the dream.
Our community is irreplacable!
