One of the best parts of any CrossFit box is the varied and welcoming community that makes up its members. The BOXROX quiz will help to show you where you fit in.
From 100 + year old masters to teenagers that destroy every WOD that comes their way, the worldwide collection of Crossfitters is also a hugely diverse bunch of athletes and individuals.
The sense of community at CrossFit is unique; everyone knows one another, there is always someone to help with technique, you compare WOD results, discuss competitions etc. This doesn’t happen in regular gyms, no one speaks to one another except to occasional ask “are you using this?” At CrossFit you know names, life stories … you know the people, they are your. But why is this community so important?
The community at CrossFit always provides support. How often have you encouraged others that haven’t finished the WOD yet or even been cheered on yourself? Often people stay behind after they have finished their workout just to provide moral and verbal support to another CrossFitter who is completing a qualifier for competitions. The best example of this was Sam Briggs during the live 13.5 workout. She finished her workout and despite her exhaustion then encouraged Camille LeBlanc-Bazinet to get back to the bar to squeeze out some more reps, even though they were competitors.
