Community Workout in Galveston
We would like to thank both our members and all of our visitors that came out today ! It was not an easy workout and everyone did fantastic. The best part about it was everyone going around and meeting new faces that maybe they haven’t seen before ! #bondedthroughmutualdiscomfort
If there’s one thing that separates CrossFit from other strength-and-conditioning programs, it’s the community. In my opinion, this factor is just as important as technique, coaching and programming. The emphasis on community is what’s changing the mental health of the members at each gym and what has the capacity to impact the greater community of people in general.
Community reminds us all that we are the same, we’re all on the same journey, in the same struggle, and we all deserve the same respect.
Communities form at CrossFit gyms in the most random ways. People from all walks of life end up in a class together, sweat together, suffer together and work hard on weaknesses together. Through these experiences they become friends and walls are broken down. People become friends with people they never would have expected. All of a sudden, expectations people once had of themselves and other people start to change. Maybe they start looking at people outside the gym differently, as well, as if everyone is a potential friend or community member. People actually become people again.
