CrossFit creates a space where people from many different backgrounds converge to reach a common goal: get through the WOD. No other type of gym offers the community that is created in a CrossFit box, and it’s hard to find another environment that brings together so many people of different ages, professions, backgrounds, and more.
Reaching a Common Goal
One thing that binds people in a CrossFit box together is the completion of a similar objective. People who are interested in losing weight and those who are looking to gain muscle are both doing the same workout, trying to outdo themselves to reach their fitness goals. No matter the end goal, everyone does the same workout and challenges themselves and others to do their best.
A Diverse Crowd
Despite stereotypes, there’s no “CrossFit type”. Anyone can join CrossFit and people of different ages, genders, and backgrounds often do. A CrossFit class is a great mix of people from all different walks of life, leading participants to meet people they may have never met otherwise.
The Motivation You Need
When you create friends at your gym, there’s nothing better for accountability and motivation. You’re much more likely to show up when you have friends counting on you to be there, and can even challenge each other to always attend certain classes or days. Imagine a gym where all of your best friends go and then realize that you can make that space at a new gym once you check it out and meet some amazing people.
