When people say that crossfit is like a religion what they mean is that crossfit provides a sense of belonging to something bigger than yourself.
Crossfit is an exercise program designed around the concept of community. We are living in complicated and stressful times. Thus, having a support system is crucial for a healthy lifestyle. That's what the crossfit community provides. A group of people with similar interests that support each other both in the gym and in life.
Belonging to a community is specially important in a city like New York where people come from all around the world sometimes leaving friends and family behind. Our community is unique because we all have a similar mindset. We are all professionals (lawyers, teachers, bankers, government officials, doctors, etc) that at the beginning or at the end of the day get together to blow off some steam from work. It is even more special because we have become friends. Yes friends! In a city like New York City, can you believe that? Contrary to friends from work, you choose to be around this people. So yes... it is special and we hope you'll become part our family.
