Whether you are a Rookie who just graduated from the On-Ramp program, or an OG, sometimes we all need a little reminder of who we are and what we believe in!
It isn't just working out...
It isn't just fitness...
It isn't just community...
It isn't just family...
It isn't just about betterment..
It isn't just about learning new things about myself.
It isn't just.....I could go on forever.
It's ALL of those things to me and much, much more!
Let us not forget what makes CrossFit Canuck a place you love to go:
COMMUNITY - Don't lose track of this and just go through the motions. Be a big part of it! Be accountable to yourself and everyone else.
CHEER and be SUPPORTIVE - Everyone finishes last in a WOD. You all know what that feels like. Don't leave those people to finish by themselves, CHEER them on. That's what makes our community special. Don't put your stuff away early and sneak out. STAY! Just like you, the people that finish after you are looking for a supportive environment. Spread the wealth of your happy smiling face with others and be there for them like others have been there for you!
KNOW THEIR NAME - Everyone in the class you're attending should be on a first name basis. Even if it's their first day or if they're dropping in, take 2-seconds to learn and remember their name. That way you can cheer them on as the work their ass off, just like you are. This should be EVERYDAY!!!
FAMILY - Part of making this a great hour of your busy day is getting to know everyone. As a result, over the course of time, you'll feel part of an extended family. Let's hang out outside the gym, let's grill out, let's go do fun active sports together, let's compete in CrossFit events outside the gym together.
These core principles will help us all achieve our fitness goals. When you feel supported and a part of something greater than you, EVERYONE is better off for it. Not only will you grow, so will the people around you. Let us all find strength......in the strength of our Community!
#HOME IS CANUCK!
