unnamedI’ve always heard that CrossFit is a “cult!” So I decided to figure what does “cult” mean to me?

“C”rossfit(Chelsea) “U”nity. “L”eadership. “T”ransformation.
Who wouldn’t want to be a part of that?!?!
Let me preface this by saying I have strength I never knew possible, mentally and physically. I have muscles that I didn’t know existed. When I first started, the 35lb bar made me want to cry…it was so heavy. Pull ups were only a dream and double unders were something I would never get.

Fast forward a year…I’m back squatting a 1 rep max of 160, power cleaning 120, pull ups are something I can RX AND double unders aren’t fun but I can do them!! However…my new found strength isn’t my testimony…
CrossFit has given me a community, motivation, encouragement. I am held accountable. When I miss a class a friend or coach texts me and says “hey we missed you!” When I get a gold star on Wodify, my friends are proud for me, they pushed me to get there and coaches will tell me “I knew you could do it…” Or text me and say they are proud of me. Go to a Gold’s Gym and get that encouragement…Jill
When my dad passed the outpouring of support I was given was indescribable. I received cards, texts, phone calls, prayers. Many cried with me and let my cry during work out or let me just “lift heavy shit” because I needed to get out my frustrations. Go to a Planet Fitness and find that kind of support…
I haven’t been able to attend one yet….but CFC has a bible study. What…? You can get fit, and get Jesus!!! You not only can grow in strength, but also in Christ!! Go to Anytime Fitness and get that kind of “growth” ….
If CrossFit is a “cult” then I sure am proud to be a part of it. I am stronger than I ever imagined, made more friends than I thought possible, been pushed, encouraged, prayed for, motivated, and led by some the greatest folks around. CrossFit has not only changed me physically, but emotionally, spiritually and mentally. I look forward to working out….
I dare you to go to any other gym and find that kind of transformation….

CrossFit Chelsea= PERFECTION…and I am proud to be a member!
