One of the biggest reasons why I continue to do Crossfit despite my ripped up hands, bruised collar bones, and aching muscles is the strong community! There is something about the mental and physical challenges of Crossfit that bring people together. The dynamic is one of shear competitiveness, but also support and encouragement. There are days when I break down and struggle to the point of tears and I can always count on the community to cheer me on and help me in any way that they can.
I use to spend hours at big gym by myself. I was so bored of having to spend another twenty minutes on the treadmill or doing one more sit up. Now, I can go to Crossfit, mingle with my friends, work so hard that I want to collapse, and then feel invigorated the rest of the day. The other great thing is that many times my work outs are only twenty minutes or less and with my schedule that is a life saver!
