THE POWER OF COMMUNITY
CrossFit and the Human Connection

The power of community is about making lives better
and helping people achieve their goals.  Psychologist Allison Wenglin
Belger describes the importance of group affiliation–of having a
network of mutual support and human connection in the midst of our
hectic, technology-driven lives. With candor and grit, the author
takes the reader on a journey from her childhood in suburban New York
as she follows her passion for competitive sports and wilderness
adventure, to her present-day connection to CrossFit, a dynamic,
functional fitness and conditioning program with an emphasis on
camaraderie and community. 
 
Belger
shares stories of military wounded warriors and everyday heroes who have
faced life-threatening crises–with the help of their community
affiliation. She relates inspiring examples of individuals who have
created communities and support networks for populations in need,
including cancer patients and at-risk youth. Drawing on her doctoral
research, she documents the emotional and physical benefits of group
participation. With her unique perspective as psychologist and athlete,
Dr. Belger explores the mind-body connection and how it can relate to
all of us.  Through her compelling narratives, each of
which intersects with the CrossFit experience, she encourages us to
examine our lives and relationships so that we may find meaning in a
stressful world–if we are open to the power of community.
