Since you all LOVE LOVE LOVE to tell everyone about CrossFit, I know this conversation has come up. Your friends and coworkers notice a change in your body, your attitude, and your ability to live life, and they want to know how you did it, and by god, you want to tell them. Eventually, it comes to this:
You pay WHAT for your gym?!?!?!
Gasping, silence, blank stares and judgement follow.
Why would you pay more than $10 or $25 a month for a gym membership? And it doesn’t even have a pool? Wait, no kiddie care? No Sauna?
What kind of a place is your gym anyhow?
What makes it worth the investment?
Tell them this…
Because its a place where people get fit and healthy in a world of stress.
A place where coaches guide you to strength you never knew you had
A place where people care about how you eat, how you live and how you feel.
A place where you can develop a community of friends from all walks of life, where a CEO can cheer on a barmaid and a teenager encourages their parents to succeed.
A place that will go out and run 5k’s with you, hell, even marathons , to help you get through it.
When you walk into your gym, you get a place that cares far more about your health than the monthly invoice, a place that welcomes you and actually makes you eager to get out of bed at 5am to hit the WOD with your friends.
You get a place that becomes family.
Your gym gets you results and it will make you stronger, faster, healthier and more motivated to reach your potential than you ever thought you would be.
So when people ask how you can pay so much, tell them you’ve found the best place in the world to invest, YOURSELF, and there is no better bargain in the world.

Many of us crucify ourselves between two thieves – regret for the past and fear of the future.
