The types of characters talked about in this CrossFit Dad's Blog are not fictional. They do exist believe it or not. I know, I know you cant possibly fathom that, but dont be naive. Is it bad that they exist? No, because it gives everyone something to talk about! haha.
Everyone is different and wants different things from CrossFit. Will you benefit from being one of these personalities in the gym, NO! Your Character in the gym speaks volumes about who you are outside the gym. The same qualities will come out, its just how it goes. Im not saying change, but take a look at your character and how it may influence others in the gym, positively or negatively. Be excellent to yourself and each other!
Speaking of Character. I must give a shout out and the utmost respect to Coach Josh and one of our members Dan S. Coach Josh will shoot you straight. A man of his word, a pillar in the St. Louis Fire-fighter community and all around good guy inside and outside the gym. Dan s, a very comical guy is super dependable, another active pillar in the fire-fighter community, a very focused guy inside and outside the gym. These two guys founded the Sheep Dog Impact Resistance Charpter of Saint Louis. I called em up to help fight the flood waters in my home town and they were there in 2 hours, along with Bryson E. (a very upstanding and cool dude as well) but not a member of 26...yet???
The picture above taken by Bryson show Josh and Dan going up the levy with the 4 ft stakes that are the foundation of the sandbag wall needed to be build to hold back the water from flooding over the levy. These guys laid down miles of stakes to help start the process. THANK YOU!
Please support these guys by attending their Trivia Night This Saturday. Info here! April 27th 7pm.
26 will proudly be supporting 3 full tables. This guy (me) will be MC'ing the event. This will be my first gig so take it easy on me.
Above is the finished look at after the stakes have been layed, driven boards up (2 ft high) plastic down and sandbags laid. Lets hope the rains chills, with that your zen......
