CrossFit Bradenton: Our Community

CrossFit Bradenton: Our Community
By Guest Contributor, Alia White, CrossFit Bradenton’s Joy Girl

In a world where life is always on the go and there never seems to be enough time, CrossFit Bradenton serves as a haven, providing an environment where one can, of course, physically work out, but also mentally work out. Our CrossFit community is comprised of fellow people from all walks of life, most of whom you would have never had the opportunity to even meet without CrossFit Bradenton. We join to push ourselves to our physical limits each day, sweating and suffering, only to come in and do it again the next day to improve ourselves, together. We provide one another with encouragement and support, and build friendships. Drama, life worries, and struggles are left at the door, and for your one hour class, we are simply humans on the same journey.
CrossFit Bradenton is an environment where you are welcomed, treated with respect, and valued. It is a place where you can be humbled and work to mitigate your ego. Hate, ignorance, and shame are not tolerated. Our CrossFit community is not just about technique, personal records, and competitions; it is about relating to your fellow athlete, on a face-to-face basis, through life’s ups and downs. It is about knowing that, in spite of what is going on in each individual’s world at the moment, our one hour class period is a time where we can be ourselves, be accepted, and be backed by our community.
