Fit It Forward Challenge: Thank ten people today. Be sincere. In person is best, phone is good, and email is fine. Let them know specifically what they’ve done for you. You can also thank someone in our Community Facebook group.
Let US know you’re doing the challenge! Tag yourself in this picture in our Community Facebook page and make it your profile pic for the week! You don’t have to tell anyone what it means if you don’t want to, but we wanna know that the True Spirit Family is doing some good out there!
Friday's Fit it Forward Finale
If you’re happy about your PRs, or joyful because of #podiumweek you don’t have to hand out our business cards. You don’t have to refer seven others. Instead, I want you to teach your best friend to squat. If you care about them, teach them how to do an honest-to-God, heels-down, hips-back SQUAT.
This shared model of fitness–I teach you, you teach a friend, and we can all play–is the inspirational part of CrossFit. It’s the difference between the ingredients and the cake. Fun and learning: that’s what all other programs are lacking, what you can’t get at home, and what you can’t explain if you haven’t done it with us. Most days, I can’t believe non-CrossFit gyms are still in business. And that guy teaching “crossfitness?” Don’t get me started.
The beauty of CrossFit isn’t the colorful bumper plates, or women doing pull-ups. It’s not even the “WOD.” The beauty is, “Let me show you how to squat, friend.” The beauty is CARING. We care enough to learn more, to tell you when you can do better, to share. And everyone can share.
Can you think of a better gift to give your best friend, your husband, your boss? I can’t.
I’ll even give you a prize. Post a picture of your friend squatting to our Facebook community page Friday, or email it to me, and they can do Foundations for free ($250 value.) It has to be good–you’ll have to teach them–and it has to be Friday. But if they do one good squat, they come to True Spirit for free.
Record your WOD on Beyond the Whiteboard.
