Playing live shows with some of the biggest bands in the world was an absolute rush. Playing on stage before Slipknot, Mudvayne, Hatebreed, any of them… It was a 45 minute full contact sport, performing with intensity to get your band noticed. While you walked off stage exhausted, clothes dripping with sweat, every night was the biggest thrill I’ve ever had. A CrossFit workout is the only thing comparable to that feeling. You prepare as much as you can to perform to your max potential, and the thrill happens daily. With CrossFit, the benefits are many. You feel accomplished and you are taking massive strides in terms of health and athleticism, making yourself prepared for whatever life demands. Prioritizing nutrition and exercise in this way takes care of “you”.
I’ve always been into the alternative. I’ve found my place in where the majority isn’t. Being fit and conscious of taking real care of yourself is probably the most punk rock thing you can do. Want to really go against the grain? Put your social media down for an hour. Get in a group with other people all of which come from different backgrounds and beliefs, all of which have different viewpoints. Accomplish a workout with them and all of these differences go away. CrossFit gives you a daily dose of being alive.
