There were people who were familiar faces, and we’d nod to one another as we came in. Soon the nods became greetings. Then commiseration after particularly brutal workouts. Then encouragement during the workouts. Then we began to know eachother’s names. Then we became Facebook friends. Then we started organizing nights out, or excursions to the shooting range. Then it became less about going to the gym to work out and more about going to the gym to meet my friends. We sweated and hurt together, we talked Paleo diets and punk rock.

I *LOVED* this part right here! Great read overall and keep up the good work. I'm slowly experiencing these parts you are talking about right now and it's fantastic!

Re: CrossFit - Year One in Review

A great write up. I love reading the testimonials. After doing CrossFit for 2 years, I have opened an affiliate with a partner. We are loving coaching and our new people's reactions to their first few wods.
I was wondering if we could use part or all of your post on our website so that these new people know they are not alone? Would of course give you credit.
