Keeping it Real

The real deal. Anyone ever said you were the "real deal"? What does that mean? What does it mean to be real? The first word that comes to mind is authentic. Being authentic can be real. There is truth in authenticity that people are attracted to, people want more of, and aim to be moment by moment. The more we become fit, come into our own body, learn more about who we are and what we can overcome through fitness and weight loss, the more our "realness" will shine.
CrossFit is such a raw, demanding, fitness routine that your "true self" will come out and challenge you to become more of who you are, let it shine!
