I’m Your Paparazzi (8/31/10)

What does CrossFit mean to you? How do you define it when someone asks you why you purposely put yourself through the day in and day out torture that tears the calluses off your hands, leaves scars on your shins and bruises on your collarbones? I could go on all night long about all the ways I can define CrossFit, but I’m sure most of you have already heard me talk about it, read my musings on the website, or can just tell by the fact that I rarely wear anything that doesn’t say CROSSFIT MONTGOMERY COUNTY all over it that I think CrossFit is pretty cool. And if you haven’t heard me rave about the wonderful benefits of the program, the incredible community in the gym, or the way CrossFit translates into every single aspect of the rest of your life, then I dare you to ask me sometime. Just make sure you have a few free hours where you don’t have anywhere to be…

But this post isn’t about what I think CrossFit is, it’s about what you think CrossFit is. I’ve seen several other affiliates post videos on YouTube that are geared toward sharing their definition of CrossFit with the world, presumably to serve as a marketing video, and I think it’s time we make one of our own. In the coming days (and possibly weeks) I’ll be wandering around the gym with my video camera (not that this will be anything new), taking videos of you telling me what your definition of CrossFit is. I’ll be compiling the raw footage into a 2-3 minute video that I’ll put in a very visible place on the website to give newcomers an idea of what CrossFit is, according to you. After all, I’m only the coach here – you are CrossFit Montgomery County, and you are the pulse, energy and lifeblood of CFMC. You’re the ones the people who visit the website looking for information about what CrossFit is want to hear from.

So be ready, because you may very well have a small handheld video camera thrust into your face and be drilled with questions about what CrossFit means to you.
