CrossFit makes my heart sing. It is my passion. I travel Europe and the world, every weekend to spread the message. I work for CrossFit Headquarters teaching their L1 and L2 trainer courses as a lead instructor (Flowmaster). It is the greatest job in the world.
At the age of 23 I left the Royal Marines, having served for seven years. I thought I was bulletproof and super fit…I was wrong! While working as a trainer in a gym one day, a colleague told me about this thing called CrossFit. He had just found it online and thought it was right up my street. Roughly seventeen minutes later I found myself collapsed outside on a grass verge trying to figure out what the hell had just happened. That was it, I went home to find out more and later that day booked a flight to San Diego in order to learn from the horse’s mouth. During that period I was initially exposed to the community. Not since leaving the military sector a few years prior had I seen such camaraderie; yet these were strangers! I was in a room full of people who were utterly selfless, cheerful regardless of the environment and all humble to a fault. I was sold!
CrossFit is extremely powerful; it is life changing. There is no other way to put it. This facility and more importantly the people in it will make you better; the cool thing is…you get to decide at what. Write down five things that will make you a better person, I don’t need to know what they are. Put them in an envelope and hide it. After six months go and tear it open, I still don’t want to see it. You are going to find me and tell me whether you coming here, your exposure to this place made you better… I already know the answer.
It is very difficult these days to perform a truly selfless good deed, a random act of kindness. I see it everyday in CrossFit.
