So you have taken the plunge to CrossFit. It is amazing! You are doing things you never thought possible. You feel stronger! Have more energy! Your clothes are fitting better then they have in a long time. You want to share this with the world.
Later that week you are talking to one of your best friends telling them how excited you are and how great you are feeling about CrossFit 818 and you want them to come with you and try out a class. Their response...
"I Have to Get In Shape Before I do CrossFit"
This has got to be one of my favorite EXCUSES on the planet I hear when telling my friends, family, or acquaintances about CrossFit and telling them how great it WILL be for them. We know how great CrossFit has been for us and we only want to share that experience with others. But when people aren't even willing to give it a shot once, I just sit back and laugh.
How do you react when your friend/family throws out the "Need to get in-shape" card?
What do you say to them?
Is it even worth it to help them understand?
Do you even know what to say back?
Post to comments and sound off!
