What makes you different?
I was first attracted to CrossFit because it was different. After years in the stagnated in my fitness journey, I was tired of the myths, quasi-science, and flat-out lies. I wanted something that truly worked and was long-lasting, not a myth-buster. CrossFit was a new voice in the wilderness.
I went through the “competitive” side of CrossFit, the Paleo side, and the Zone side. I was quick to embrace anything opposite of the status quo in fitness. After a few years, I realized that CrossFit had its OWN dogma, and I pulled it back a bit.
I’ve mellowed a bit. But the fitness industry really hasn’t. CrossFit was so radical that it pulled the whole movement a few degrees to the right. The old radical has become the new normal: the globo gym down the street still doesn’t care if you show up or not, but they have bumper plates and pull-up rigs in case you do.
What’s the New Radical?
What are the trendsetters doing now? What are the early adopters adopting?
They’re taking control of their own health and fitness.
We can’t wait for answers to be solved for us. We can’t wait for food to fall from the trees or for doctors to book an appointment to see how we’re doing. No one is taking your temperature until you’re sick. And no one will carry you until you’re in a casket.
Still, most of us do nothing about it. And never will. We’ll wait, instead, for the Doctor’s mandates us to exercise or to eat some pills.
The EBCF mission is to enrich the lives of people in the greater-Seattle area. I want to give control to those who want to take it for themselves. Those that take action.
The new radicals don’t wait around to be told what to do, but go out and find their answers and execute.
It definitely won’t be easy. But it will definitely be worth it.
