Depending on when you’re reading this, International Happiness Day is today, or was yesterday. It serves as a day of awareness to remember to smile and appreciate how amazing life is. People come to CrossFit Proper for results. They want to lose weight, build muscle, train for a specific 5k run, or even because it’s their job as a serviceman/woman (LEO, Fire, Military, etc.). But that’s not what they stay for. They stay because it makes them feel good, it makes them happy.
When someone asked the inventor and owner of CrossFit, Greg Glassman, what the #1 reason CrossFit gyms fail, his answer was simple. “They’re no fun.”
From the CrossFit Games Intramural Open we’re in the middle of to silly ice-breaker questions during class, we try to take things serious, but not. Yes, we want to you to hit your goals. We also want you to know that the results on the board doesn’t matter if you aren’t having fun.
Trust us, we’ve done it both ways. Fitness is always better when you’re having fun and happy. Good thing we’re the #HappyGym 365 days a year. 🙂
