Every so often something comes along that breaks down barriers and connects the world in a common interest. Something that binds people together no matter what their gender, race, age or any other differentiating factor. In today’s world, that something is CrossFit®. It is rare to find a community where someone in small town America can connect with someone else across the globe through a common goal – fitness.
In the spirit of The Open, we celebrate a community that is just that – open. To all walks of life in every corner of the globe, CrossFit® is a common thread that binds uncommon lives. As a box owner or competitor, whether or not you enter your results to be the best of the best, keep in mind that you are part of something larger. You are a part of a community where everyone had to start with one kipping pull-up, one burpee and one back squat. You are a part of a community that comes together WOD after WOD, day after day, week after week to reach their goal. You are a part of a community whose individual goals could be as different as training for a marathon or just trying to keep up with your grandchildren but whose collective goal is to complete that rep, that exercise, that workout together.
Zen Planner is proud to be a part of this amazing community. The passion for affiliate gyms runs deep in our office, as we have many employees who are certified CrossFit® coaches and athletes participating this year’s Open. We also support hundreds of boxes and their athletes in 36 countries around the globe.
Congratulations to all of the participants in 16.1 and best of luck to everyone who has yet to compete. As you sweat through each WOD, whether your goal is to qualify for the next stage or successfully complete the workout, remember that you not only have the support of those in your local box but of your community across the world.
