More than…

by CrossFit Medina

I have the honor and privilege of owning a CrossFit Affiliate, but with that comes the daunting task of having to tell people what CrossFit is.

“So it’s a gym.” No, it’s more than that…
“So it’s like P90X.” No, it’s more than that…
“So it’s a Boot Camp.” No, it’s more than that…
“So it’s like a diet.” No it’s more than that…

Then I realized that I was once on the other side of a conversation like this, but it wasn’t about CrossFit. It was about soccer… excuse me, “futbol!” And I didn’t fully understand what people were telling me until I experienced it for myself.

In September 2010 I was in Spain for an MBA immersion trip and I found myself surrounded by soccer fans. As we walked through Camp Nou (the stadium that Futbol Club [FC] Barcelona plays at) my friends were going crazy… as though we were walking on hallowed ground. They kept patiently educating me on the significance of FC Barcelona. FC Barcelona not only represents the city, but the Catalan people as well.

“So they’re like the Browns and Clevelanders?” No, it’s more than that…

For the Catalans, FC Barcelona is one of the most important icons of the Catalan national pride. It is also a symbol of resistance against the suppression they had to experience, especially by the Franco regime

“Right, like the Cleveland fans against Art Modell.” No, it’s more than that…

The only way for me to grasp this was to experience a match for myself. And on September 14th 2010 my understanding of futbol was changed forever. That night the entire City of Barcelona shut down for a practically meaningless game against the Greek team, Panathinaikos. Some one hundred thousand plus fans converged upon Camp Nou, while millions of others watched on television. The feeling was more electrifying than any playoff game (MLB, NBA, NFL, NCAA, you name it) I’ve ever watched live or on TV, and this was a meaningless game! I finally understood what everyone was talking about. Without question, FC Barcelona is “Mes Que Un Club.” For the Catalans they represent life.

So I could talk all day about what CrossFit is… or what it means to me… or our athletes. But the only way for anyone to truly understand that it is “Mes Que Un Gimnasio”  they have to experience it for themselves.

Then they’ll know that it’s more than a gym…
more than a program…
more than a diet…
more than a fad…

 It’s a way of life.

Another Holli Birthday!
