Jen has no prob catching the snatch in a squat, but she’s glad that today’s snatches are power style!

What It’s All About…If You Know, Then You Know!

Story time. I was pulling up to the gym to jump into the 10am WOD. I was about 10 minutes early, which I was glad about! As I stopped to turn into the parking lot, I saw well over a dozen of our athletes running on the sidewalk toward the gym. I was super confused. As you know, yesterday’s workout finished with an 800m run. As you also know, there is no way that everyone in a single workout would end up finishing the run together in a group. It just doesn’t happen. So I knew that this couldn’t be the 9am crew finishing the WOD. My next thought was that somehow instead of being early I was late and what I was seeing was the warm-up for the 10am workout. I was completely lost. 

So I parked, got my gear out of the truck, and quickly realized what was happening. I should have known right away, but showing up late to the party it took me a little while to figure it out. What I was seeing was every single person in the 9am WOD bringing in the last runner of the group. These folks all went hard and finished the workout in their time, and then they all went out to run the last stretch with a fellow athlete. I got goosebumps from it, but I wasn’t surprised. This is what we do.

This is an example of what people who hear about CrossFit, or hear about Evolve, or see it on ESPN, or know somebody who does it, or hear you talk about it, that they will never understand. They can look at our website, and even watch our brand story video, but they will never understand what it means when we say “community.” You can’t even find the words to describe it. But you feel it when you’re a part of it. When you know, you know. We’re inspired by the Evolve community every single day. Thank you to the 9am Crew yesterday for giving us yet another example of what it really is all about!
