12 Jul Sweat is the Glue that Bonds Best
This photo is what we’re all about…bonds forged through sustained effort and intensity. Each drop of sweat is like another link in the chain. This is what I loved about the Army, the friendships and bonded formed under the most stressful of situations.
“We few, we happy few, we band of brothers, For he today who sheds his blood with me shall be my brother.”
CrossFit offers a similar format. Communal suffering is an incredible relationship builder. If played organized sports you can relate, and that’s the best way to describe it..a team atmosphere, all year long. You grow and suffer day in and day out together.
In addition to the team building atmosphere we offer, it’s an amazing stress reliever. It might just be the only period of the day where you shut off your phone, disconnect from the “world”, and focus on yourself. It has a very focused meditative effect where it’s just you and the task at hand.
A few weeks ago I had the great pleasure to meet and learn from Dr. Theresa Larson DPT. “Doc” is awesome and incredibly helpful. In a quick weekend, she taught me a crap ton about mobility, helped me with my low back, and made time for my endless questions.
Here’s a quick list of why Doc is so awesome:
1) She’s a former Marine
2) She’s close to 8 ft tall..not really but she’s pretty tall.
3) A former pro softball player
4) Worked and studied under Kelly Starrett of mobilitywod
5) Loves to help veterans through Team RWB
She recently published an article detailing the psychological benefits of CrossFit and it speaks a lot to the incredible stress relieving benefits that is can offer. Be sure to check her website out and on Facebook. She’s an amazing resource.
