1 Corinthians 9:26-27
“Thus I do not run aimlessly; I do not fight as if I were shadowboxing. No, I drive my body and train it, for fear that, after having preached to others, I myself should be disqualified.”
We’ve all heard it before, CrossFit is varied. It’s functional. It’s a challenge. It’s diverse; and not just in its programming. Affiliates are located throughout the world highlighting diverse cultures and people groups. Each box, respectively, is diverse as athletes come in different shapes and sizes and from all walks of life.
CrossFit Ignis reflects that diversity, as we consist of teachers, healthcare professionals, veterans, pastors, salespersons, etc.. Some athletes are fire-breathers, some are RX’ers, others are conquering movements and bettering themselves one day at a time. The common denominator for us all is our commitment to fitness. We simply want to improve our overall health and we want to do it TOGETHER in community.
Community is defined by Webster as a unified body of individuals. Our unity is demonstrated not only through our commitment to CrossFit, but through various activities that we take part in throughout the year. Said activities include: running races TOGETHER, raising awareness to health issues TOGETHER, collecting school supplies for children in need TOGETHER, celebrating holidays TOGETHER, participating in box-wide family activities TOGETHER, honoring heroes TOGETHER, competing in the CrossFit Open TOGETHER. Much of what we do is TOGETHER.
With that said, we want to offer another opportunity for people to be TOGETHER, which we feel will further reflect our diversity. Beginning in October, for one Sunday a month, the box will be open from 2-3pm for a Faith WOD. There will be a short devotional (5-7 minutes) followed by a warm-up and metcon. Our monthly Faith WOD will be FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC as well. This is a good opportunity to invite family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, even strangers to come see what CrossFit is all about. One of our coaches will handle the programming of the WOD, as well as instructing the WOD itself. As a result, any guest(s) with zero experience will be welcomed, as they will be coached up and have the WOD modified to their ability level.
At CrossFit Ignis, we are committed to diversity and community. We feel our new Faith WOD adventure could add another element to our box.
