Why CrossFit is so much more that just a “Workout!”

 

I remember the first time I stepped into a CrossFit gym, I was terrified. I had been a long time member of a traditional fitness club. You know, the kind with spa locker rooms & childcare centers. My mind was made up that I was going to feel awkward and completely out of place and trying something new. I walked in and was stretching before class when a woman sat down next to me and said, “Are you new? I haven’t seen you here before.” I had been a member of my previous fitness club for over four years and never had anyone approach me and strike up a conversation. I immediately felt the difference in culture and knew I was in love with it.

That instant feeling of belonging, despite being a total beginner, is very rare in today’s society. The overall welcoming nature of all the members, from other beginners to superstar athletes, was shocking. I was confident I had found my new home.

This is the striking difference between a gym where you go workout and CrossFit. The connection you gain with those you ‘go into battle with,’ is deep. They become your family. We cheer for each other, celebrate each others success, pick each other up when we’re down, and high five after a workout. There is never any judgment! The bonds you create come naturally and those feelings-of-family touches even those not looking to find it.

One reason Crossfit builds such strong community is that we train in such close proximity no matter the difference in ability. It’s like a ripple effect where every athlete pushes the others around them. Those badass elites at the gym feel the drive and see the hard work of those striving to get better, and that, in turn, pushes them to work harder. We are all doing the same workout, some modifying up or down depending on level, but in the end, we are all participating together in the same WOD. We all battle together to be the best versions of ourselves. We are inspired by each other and keep setting & hitting bigger and bigger goals.

It’s like this; if one person in the gym has a goal, then everyone has a goal. When you see someone working to develop a new skill, you offer help. It’s not about staying ahead, but instead about helping others reach their goal. We then celebrate a collective win. This is the reason that people come to one CrossFit class and never leave. This feeling of being lifted up, as well as that great feeling of lifting others up, is why we get better results than when they just go workout alone. Those amazing results make us never want to stop talking about our CrossFit family and the workouts we do together.

A common scene in every box is when the last person completing the workout has the support and encouragement of the entire group. It doesn’t matter how long ago the first finisher ended. It simply feels good to cheer and be cheered for, encourage and be encouraged, and to pour belief in others while they pour their belief into you. It’s something most of us don’t receive in the other places of life. It’s this encouragement that breeds success! I’ve carried that over in so many other areas of life.

The community is key and no community is stronger than a CrossFit community.

Lindsay Sneller Shares Her Story!!!!

Obtaining optimal health has been quite a journey for me. I wasn’t an athlete as a kid, and really didn’t start exercising regularly until my mid twenties. I began running about 14 years ago. Running was a huge struggle, like I said I wasn’t particularly athletic and it took massive commitment for me to stick with it. I really began running after I had my first child as a way to lose the baby weight I gained that didn’t just melt off magically when she was born. I ran tons of races from distances from 5k to marathons and did some weight training. But I still didn’t feel like an athlete. I admired women who had lean, toned strong bodies. And after years of running and weight training I sorta resigned to thinking that I just didn’t have the type of body that built muscle.

6 years ago I began to really clean up my diet. My husband was beginning training for a 120 mike race and wanted to be fueling his body in the best way possible to prepare for it. As the maker of food in the house I decided to just eat what he ate to make it simple. I couldn’t believe how much better I felt overall, how much harder I was as able to train and how much quicker I began to recover from workouts, just by fueling my body properly!

This made me want to push my body harder and after some serious nudging from my husband{for about 6 months}, I finally agreed to try out a Crossfit class. I was terrified!! I wasn’t a weightlifter!! I was a skinny little runner girl. But at my very first class I was so welcomed in, and I quickly realized that there was no “mold” for what a crossfitter is. And I loved that! When I first began Crossfit, I knew nothing! I could barely lift the 35lb bar, and a pull-up or toes to bar was something I had never even attempted to try and do. But, I had never felt so comfortable failing at something before in my life! There was no judgment, in fact I had never really felt so supported by people I barely knew! I struggled through workouts, scaled them all, and began to fall in love with pushing my body to its limits. And this combined with properly fueling my body caused it to change! I suddenly had muscle! Like lean, toned muscle that I had always admired in others and strived for. CrossFit made me love exercising, and moving my body. It never felt like a chore or something I had to do to try and achieve my ideal healthy body. It was fun, I loved it, the challenge it posed each day, and the friends I made along the way!

My transformation didn’t happen overnight! In fact, I don’t believe anything lasting ever does. It took time, commitment, hard work, consistency, and hell of a lot of sweat(with some blood and tears too) But, it has changed me as a person; I’ve grown, stretched in ways I didn’t think possible, gained confidence, belief in myself, self love, and it’s made me a happier person.

Crossfit was such an integral part of my transformation. I have learned so much about myself since first stepping into a Crossfit gym! I’ve learned just how mentally tough and strong I can be, it’s taught me to believe in myself and my bodies ability, to trust in a process and be patient, and to never be afraid to fail. I’ve learned that support, accountability and a community is key in achieving goals, and Crossfit has given me all of these!

 

Way to go Lindsay!!! We are so proud of you!!!!
