Once in a while I have a conversation with a member about authenticity. He talks about Proper and how we have a genuine care for people’s health and well-being. The cool thing is we also talk about all of our short comings.
Too many beers on the weekends.
Nagging aches and pains.
But that’s the great thing about the gym, we know you’re not perfect. Kind of like that sign I saw at a church off of Main Street – “Perfect people not welcome”. We all have highs and lows. We all know what to eat, but choose a donut instead. It’s life – and if there’s one thing I’ve learned in the 10+ years of doing CrossFit is that we have to be authentic.
We could put up a front and tell you to eat 100% paleo, 365 days a year, but I’d rather ask you if you’re happy where you’re at, then plan from there. Regardless of your answer I think you’re doing amazing – let’s hug it out and get back to living (and some burpees).
