Have you ever bumped into a friend that you haven't seen for a long time? You know the person I'm talking about: the guy or girl who sat next to you in Chemistry during your junior year, you're friends on Facebook but haven't talked in a few years, keeping tabs on them only by way of the pictures that they post and the places they check in at. Yeah, we all know a couple dozen people who we've fallen out of touch with. Well, I ran into one of those people last night and after a few laughs about high school the inevitable question arose: Dude, what is this CrossFit thing you're doing? I've seen the pictures, it looks insane!
I realized that I have had this dialogue with former classmates from just about every school I've attended including a pal from 1st grade who moved to Colorado and sent me a message because he wanted to get his health and fitness in good working order. Most people find themselves in a CrossFit class after being encouraged (or dragged) by someone they know. It's this initial referral that sends them diving down the rabbit hole in search of better fitness - people notice if you stick with it. Take a second and ask yourself how you got here and what other people's reaction has been to your progress. Sound off with your stories in the comments!
P.S. New whiteboard pictures are going up on our community board - if you haven't taken your new picture yet let one of the coaches know!
