Step your game up
A year ago, CrossFit Midtown was about to officially open for business. The past year has been the toughest and most educational one of my life. So many challenges and opportunities and amazing people have entered my life. So as our first anniversary nears, of course I've spent a lot of time reflecting on how far CFM has already come in such a short time.
But I'm also committed to continue making it better and better. Our community - YOU GUYS - coming in to the gym day after day - busting your butts for PRs, sweating out every last rep, working to improve each day - constantly inspires the CFM team to work harder for you and provide even better coaching, programming, accountability, and community events!
If you're around the box today, you'll meet my dear friend Jen, who I had the great fortune to meet over a year ago. Now-CFM student Carlos introduced me to The BIZ a year and half ago when I was working at another gym. He knew of the BIZ through his old box, CrossFit Los Angeles. Carlos encouraged me to apply to become a BIZ intern back in November 2011. I later joined their team and still work for them as a featured blogger.
Since working with the BIZ, I've been introduced to an amazing community of CrossFit affiliate owners who inspire and push each other to raise our game regularly. The better businesses we run, the more lives we can improve through CrossFit.
The BIZ community is a lot like the community in a CrossFit gym. Just like my colleagues encourage me to do better every day & month & year, I encourage you to do the same.
Continue working hard in the gym. Be proud of your progress and keep raising your game. You are all an inspiration to me, to your coaches and to your classmates.
What inspires you on a daily basis? How will you raise your game this month? Please share your thoughts in the comments...
