Afraid of getting too big?January 28, 2012
This isn’t about what you might think. It’s not about you! It’s about our gym (soon to be ‘CrossFit box’). In a way I’m afraid of getting too big. I really like the small community we have built. I like that many of you have become friends outside of our leaky walls. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed getting to know all of you very well. However, as we grow the classes will be getting bigger (still a max of 6) and there will be less time to get to know each other. So, please take some time to get to know people. If you haven’t seen your friends around recently then email, call, facebook or whatever….find out where they have been. If you notice someone is losing weight then tell them! If you notice someone is sad then ask them why! Take the time to make friends and you will enjoy your workouts even more!
Right now I’m very busy with all the changes going on and I don’t have the time to organize social events very well. And, to be honest we haven’t all been great at attending the social events I’ve tried to have in the past. (Yes, like Dan blowing off his own birthday outing…but we’ll try again next Friday?) If anyone wants to organize any other social events, like a pot luck dinner or a baby shower then please let me know and we’ll figure out a good time.
Thanks for being patient with the ceiling leaks, the t-shirts, the name change, the new athletes, the 42 sandbag step-ups, etc…. There is a lot of change underway but in the long run it will only make our community stronger! Bigger, stronger, and dryer!
