The Webster Dictionary first defines the word “beautiful” as something that is “physically attractive”. Sure this can be true for many things, however something or someone can be beautiful in ways other than what you literally see in front of you. That in mind, I tend to agree more so with the Webster Dictionary’s second definition, “the qualities in a person or a thing that give pleasure to the senses or the mind”. This is exactly what Crossfit does for many.
Whether you are feeling beautiful, handsome, dapper, stunning, glowing, whatever you want to call it . . . .each and every person can have a different way of feeling ultimately the same . . . beautiful. Crossfit teaches everyone to feel beautiful again. In confidence, in friendships, in your own skin. It’s walking out in that new outfit and watching people’s heads turn. It’s having the courage to try something that once terrified you and succeeding. Beauty is trying to reach your goals, failing, refusing to quit, and in the end walking away victorious.
“There are people who spend their entire lives allowing their reflection in the mirror determine their self esteem, submitting to a cultural judgement established decades ago. But in Crossfit gyms all over the world, mirrors are conspicuous by their absence. Fitness is gauged in reps, speed, power, virtuosity. Beauty is measured in joy, and in pride.”
Both at Crossfit Factory Square, and in Crossfit gyms across the world, every day we are Letting Beauty Speak for itself. . . .
