When you join the CrossFit community, you're not only joining a workout program or a gym, you're joining a community of people that have common goals. You can find people from countries like Germany, Australia, China, and South Africa, doing the same thing as you.
The unique thing about CrossFit is that it is free. Yes, you read correctly. If you visit CrossFit.com, you will find the Workout of the Day, also called the "WOD."
Anyone from anywhere can do this workout. Providing the opportunity to reach elite fitness is one of CrossFit's primary goals. CrossFit is open to the masses, and the only way to morph this world into a fit community is by letting everybody participate. When entering the CrossFit community, you are joining thousands of people that have one goal: to become better. Not just better CrossFitters, but better parents, lawyers, police officers, firefighters, friends, etc... Just ask any member of our community whether CrossFit has had an impact on his/her life outside of the box. I have yet to hear a "No."
You Can Do It:
The single best thing about CrossFit is that it is for every level. Whether you have never lifted a weight in your life or you are a professional athlete, CrossFit will make you better. This is what you were born to do. If you decide to join a CrossFit gym, an instructor will always be there to coach you. He or she will perfect your movements and make sure you have the correct form for optimal performance and safety. You will find yourself surrounded by a group that will cheer the last person to finish just as hard as the first.
CrossFit in nature does not allow for egos. The workouts always win. The only thing you can improve on, is how badly it affects you. That's what makes people stronger, not a big chest.
When you work hard, you earn respect. It does not matter who you are or what you are capable of. Hard work is hard work. There is no room for egos in a CrossFit box.
Because of this, we have the unique capability to make a novice athlete better as well as the elite athlete. Any Strength and Conditioning gym will get an athlete in shape."
