They Come Here

Lisbeth CrossFit, Essays, Life, Mindset, Motivation

They come here

Sometimes in the cold and dark,

Sometimes in the light and warmth.

All times, all days

All workouts.

They come because the workout is hard

They come because they’re tired of easy

Tired of a world that doesn’t challenge them

Tired of words like acceptable, adequate, okay. Tired of “good enough.”

They threw these words away long ago

And walked through the doors to this box

To chase excellence, to chase outstanding, to chase something more.

They come here to become better athletes, and better people.

Better friends, better parents, better daughters, better sons, better lovers, better whatever the hell they want to be.


And why the heck not?

We could all have worse addictions.
