CROSSFIT, THE UNIFIER? “Leave your ego (and your politics) at the door.” One of the things I’m most grateful for over the past 21 months, is how well our community has come together and created a near “normal” environment for fitness and socializing. When we walk under that big, roll-up garage door, we put aside our differences and set our minds upon the task at hand: the workout of the day. And when the workout is over, we take a walk outside together, as teammates who fought side-by-side to overcome a very difficult physical and mental challenge – a battle. We trade workout stories and compliment each other’s performances. We recognize effort, and that is all.
In one hour at CrossFit, nothing else matters – not politics, not religion, not social media, nor current events. It is the best hour of the day.
