A lot of non CrossFitters have a false sense of the community we create within our boxes.
Some of the common misconceptions are that every member who joins CrossFit swears an oath to Dave Castro, buys a bag of chalk and dusts themselves down with it and then signs their life away in their own blood to the CrossFit cult, whilst of course, wearing a pair of brand new Reebok Nanos.
OK the last bit is true.
But In actual fact, we are just normal people, doing something we all enjoy together.
In the English language, the word 'community' derives from the Latin "communitas" which means "public spirit".
We talk quite a lot about our community here at CrossFit Anam, for the simple reason, it is the community spirit within the four walls of our gym that makes it so fulfilling.
When we refer to one of our CrossFit classes as being 'the best hour of your day' we aren't solely referring to our programming (that's for another day) but we are referring to the friendly atmosphere created by our coaches and our members.
The warm welcome you receive when you walk in. The encouragement and support to keep pushing on. The craic. The team bonding. The coffee afterwards and the all important friendships that have and will continue to be forged through fitness.
That's our community!
