I could go into my fist visit at 604, and how the team explained the gym, then put me through a mini grinder workout just for fun, but I feel it’s best for each person to see crossfit with fresh eyes. Or about how the new location of 604 is an amazing space with a lot of shiny new equipment, and great facilities, but if the space was actually in the alley and we did 100′ dumpster pushes and fire escape climbs I’d still go.
I was never a gym guy, hated it actually. I’m still not a gym guy. I felt behind compared to what other people were doing as soon as I walked in. I’d get frustrated after a week and bail. Intramural sports and manual labour in university, and beer leagues after were always good enough. But I had recently hit a point when good enough simply wasn’t. I could see the writing on the wall where that sliding scale of good enough was dropping off straight down the crapper.
A good friend of mine told me that she went to Crossfit604 and wouldn’t stop talking about it. She was getting borderline annoying actually, but I could see her love for what she was doing and I could also see the differences it was making to her physically.
The staff at Crossfit604 have managed to create a great and fun community that it makes you want to keep going and going again. One of the things I appreciate is they really, really know their shit, but they are gracious and attentive when passing it on, not selling you on anything.
I don’t want to gush any more than I have to or this could get boring and probably awkward so, if I haven’t lost you (the reader) yet, and you’ve reached that point where you want to work on yourself and not fall off that sliding scale, do yourself right and come in.
