Who’s thankful and for what?

Don’t forge that we will be closed on Thanksgiving so enjoy the day with friends and family.  We will be back at it on Black Friday for a 9 and 10am WOD to burn off those extra calories you had!

As Thanksgiving approaches there are many things I am thankful for.  I feel like I should always keep the positive thoughts and the things I am thankful for in the forefront of my thoughts and not just when a holiday comes around or when something bad happens.  This morning I woke up, washed my face, brushed my teeth and sat down with a cup of butter coffee to scan my newsfeed.  The first thing I came to was a story of an affiliate owner in Toledo who had been shot and killed opening his gym for his 6am crew.  I haven’t seen any more news on it since and all the story said was he was shot numerous times in an attempted robbery.  This is horrible news obviously and it angers me even more knowing how senseless it is.  It always make you realize though, after hearing news like this, how lucky we really are.  To wake up, safe.  To have good healthy food to eat.  To have friends and family that care about us and whom we care about.  We do have jobs.  We do live in a free country and we’re breathing its fresh air daily.  All of these things COULD be taken from us in a blink and I’m thankful that they aren’t.  I am thankful for my life and how incredible it is and how amazing you all make it on a daily basis.  Although the 6am comes quick sometimes I am lucky to open those doors and to see you every day.

    I’m thankful that God allows me to wake up everyday in my right mind, has given me full use of all my limbs, and has given me a productive means of income. I’m thankful for the support of my family and my friends and that I was lead to the CrossFit way of life and the people that I’ve had the opportunity to know along the way. Greatful…

    I am grateful for no longer being paralyzed. Due to 2 herrniated discs and only partial feeling in my left leg courtesy of the military, I have lost all use of my legs multiple times. This would always terrify Boneza. Before crossfit I always did very restrictive workouts to protect my back. This means no squats or any other spinal loading workout. However in protecting my back it backfired on me and caused my muscles to become very weak which kept me in pain. Since I’ve been crossfitting my back has gotten 10x stronger and I live in less pain. When I first walked through the crossfit doors I could only deadlift 115lbs which would result in me being out of work the next 2 following days. Now I deadlift 355 and can walk proudly the next day. I am now in the best shape of my life. Overcome your fears and you might be surprised what happens.

    You never know when your life is going to change in a split second. I’m thankful for my husband and family and my beautiful children God has placed into our world. I am thankful for my CFW family, we LOVE walking through the doors everyday ready to WOD. Ray & I love seeing our girls doing things we never thought they could do! Thank you for everything! We are truly blessed!

    I’m thankful for being so lucky to have been born an American and thankful for stumbling into CF gym one day while riding my bike. I am thankful to have the capacity now and in the future to help my fellow humans in some way shape or form. I am thankful for my health and fitness from doing crossfit. For some reason I dont stick with most things very long but CF is surely a CULT and I am addicted…thank you God. I would be even more thankful if I could figure out how to make these comments darker so i could read them…lol

    Wow, there are so many things to be thankful for…here are a few. I am thankful for my family, my husband and my friends that provide me with support, laughter and encouragement on a daily basis. I am thankful for my health and the ability to walk into the gym day in and day out and be able to perform each WOD even if I perform terrible, at least I can. I am thankful for all of the people I am blessed to know and meet who inspire me to work harder everyday. I am also extremely thankful that I have my husband here to spend my days with, especially the holidays.
