May Free Saturday – TOMORROW!

Something
is stopping you from CrossFitting. Perhaps you believe you're not fit
enough to begin. Perhaps you believe it's too hard.

Fair
enough; casual observation would lead to the erroneous conclusion that
everyone in the gym began life as a superhero, chiseled out beef and
granite.

They didn't. They were just like you, carrying ten pounds of fat where there should be ten pounds of muscle.
They were unsure of high intensity exercise, intimidated by movements
demanding coordination and strength, scared of looking stupid.


Unfortunately, you don't get to see the history, the place where every
one of those people started. You should. You should get a time
machine, you should see where they began.

It would give you courage.


My first day of CrossFit, we jumped rope. More accurately, other
people jumped rope. I stumbled around the room, arms and legs in a
tragic, asynchronous excuse for athletic movement.

I expected
laughter. Instead, I got help. A girl stopped, mid-workout,
unconcerned with the time on the clock, and showed me what to do.
Patiently. Like she gave a sh*t about me, about making me a part of the
group, about quelling my anxiety. She helped me, and I left with a new
skill, a little less awkward.

I know your experience will be
the same. Someone will help you, unbidden. You will be aided, taught,
encouraged, and loved by the people in your gym. You'll be hugged and
motivated and coached. You won't even have to ask.

Then,
you'll look around one day at what you've become, and you'll realize
that no one started that way, but everyone ends up that way. You'll
realize that no one is a superhero. You're surrounded by normal people
doing extraordinary things, and you're one of them.

You'll know
that you got there because you took the first step. You started. You
ignored your fears, just like the people in the gym will ignore your
shortcomings. You started, because you realized that nothing is
stopping you from CrossFitting.

Nothing.
