Introduce Yourself

Working out next to someone you don’t know? Remember to introduce yourself! Sometimes you might not have seen someone for a while, but don’t feel weird reintroducing yourself either. We all forget occasionally, it’s better than not knowing anyone. You guys are great at this, just keep it up!

PRE-ORDER INFORMATION
This winter we are offering hoodies in EIGHT different colors; HOWEVER, all hoodies are available for pre-order only – we will not be ordering ANY additional stock of this hoodie for later purchase.  This is different than how we have done some orders in the past so be sure to pre-order if you want a hoodie.

This year, the ordering process will be a little different than in past years as we utilize our Square system to take pre-orders, rather than a paper sheet.  Don’t worry though, the ordering process is VERY simple.

You can order from two places: 1. at the shop computer, 2. through our Square store from any computer (i.e. at home).

To order:
1. Visit our Square store: https://squareup.com/market/crossfit-roots

The Motivator Next to You

A few weeks ago during a workout, I heard an athlete say to the athlete next to them, “I saw you were going for it on the burpees so I went for it to0. I thought to myself, if he’s going for it, so should I.”

This statement hammers home the fact that our group training environment is silently motivating and contagious. For a workout method that is highly individual and which champions individual progress, class hours can exhibit a tremendous team effort to complete the task at hand. We see another athlete pushing a little harder one day and it rubs off onto our own training. We see an athlete struggling through a workout and a small nod of acknowledgement can get them back on track.

Have you been midway through a suckfest of a workout and had another athlete’s actions inspire you to refocus and work harder? Post to comments.
