Okay everyone…they are out there. Could be a family member, a co-worker, your neighbor, a friend of a friend…
Who is your CrossFit 818 CheerLeader?
You know, the person that supports your CF efforts from afar. The person that is so happy for you but won't give it a shot for themselves. Tell us about them:
-Do they support your CF efforts? How?
-Do they talk about how they are going to start soon??? And they don’t. Do you think they will join in the future?
-Were you a former CF CheerLeader and now you have seen the light? How did you do it?
-Any interesting/funny CF cheerleader stories?
Sound off in the comments CF 818'ers. Paint us a picture:-)

CrossFit 818 is getting closer and closer to be open for business! Our pullup bars are complete (and awesome), equipment has been ordered and flooring is on its way! The process has been challenging and rewarding, and it would have been impossible without the help of friends and family. This process is not so dissimilar to our journeys towards elite fitness; without our friends and families to support us we are less likely to succeed. Surround yourself with people who are not obstacles to your goals or, better yet, combine your efforts with like-minded individuals. The beauty of CrossFit is that it is infinitely scalable, so that a mother of two using an empty bar and doing jumping pullups in a workout can match the intensity of a young firebreather using 155# and going chest to bar. Both are working towards their fitness goals together side-by-side!
What recent endeavor have you undertaken that may not have been completed or as successful without the help of your friends and family?

One of the most important aspects of our journey towards elite fitness is consistency. A simple idea, but not easy to execute (like most things in CrossFit), consistency requires the commitment to do the same types of things day in and day out, even when one feels tired, sick, or even a little bored by the daily grind. While CrossFit is fun for me, because I am constantly seeing improvement and I am rarely stuck in a "chest/tri's, back/bi's" routine, consistency can still be difficult to achieve. One of the most important factors in staying consistent are your friends and family. If your support group understands your goals and works actively in supporting them, you will have a much easier time staying consistent. If your friends don't understand what you're doing or why you're doing it, then you sometimes feel like you're carrying an extra weight around your shoulders. Communicate with your friends and family what your fitness goals are and why you are going about reaching them the way you are and you will have a powerful support group on your way towards elite fitness. And don't forget to thank them for their support along the way!
