Growing up, my closest friends were those who I played sports with. There’s something about working towards a common goal and “doing battle” with those individuals day in and day out that bonds you. I’m sure this is just a glimpse of what a solider experiences while in the military, and its definitely something I experience as an adult at the gym.
I see the same bonds forming between the young athletes in our PCF Kids Class. What I love about those friendships forming as opposed to my own growing up is the diversity within the group. These kids are coming from different towns, different schools, and different family dynamics. Both boys and girls make up the group and they all vary in age.
Whether they’re listening to (or laughing hysterically at) the answers during circle time or cheering on the last person to finish their workout, special friendships are definitely developed on the wod floor. While they may not all be bff’s, they do respect one another, and that’s an admirable thing. CrossFit is definitely the great equalizer, and that holds true at the kids level, too.
CrossFit Kids has expanded their circles of influence. It has created the opportunity to meet new people, form friendships, and enjoy some healthy competition. What could be better?
