Is CrossFit scary? Are people in general afraid of walking into a box because of some fear? Were you afraid the first time you walked in? Unsure? Felt like people might be judging or you would embarrass yourself? I know at least two dozen people who have shared that feeling with me. All of you have since told me that was a baseless fear. I’m not sure why this fear exists but I do get it and I never want to just brush it off. Maybe it’s what I call the You Tube Community of CrossFit. Out on the internet if you search for CrossFit videos you are going to get a healthy dose of Regional and even National competition among the best CrossFiters in the world who are doing things many of even the most seasoned athlete at Hammer Down would struggle with.
I’m curious to know and would appreciate your comments in this blog post. If anyone who had initial fears about coming in because of any reason, please share your experiences in the comments. This can help me have the right conversation with people who are generally afraid to try something based on a misplaced fear.
