The hardest part is walking through the door and taking a chance on something new. When you join CrossFit, you join a COMMUNITY, not a gym – a group of people dedicated to bringing health and joy to your life.
What would you tell someone who thought of taking that first step, just like you? What can you do to support the CrossFit athlete in your life? How can you prepare as an athlete to be as successful as possible?
We talked to our coaches and our athletes to find a list of things every functional fitness fan needs to get the job done.
Think about it – a CrossFit Christmas List!
Whether you’ve been at CrossFit for a while, new, or thinking of trying it out, check out this list (maybe twice so you don’t forget anything) and start your journey to a better you completely prepared! Oh, and if you’re looking for the PERFECT gift for the CrossFit athlete in your life, make sure they have these gym bag essentials!
– Tracking Journal
– Shaker Bottle
– Jump Rope
– Wrist Wraps
– Weight Belt
– Knee Sleeves
– Hand Repair
– Foam Roller
– Cold Weather Gear
– A gym bag to store it all!
– Perhaps a secret stash of peanut butter…
Many of these items are extremely cost-effective and can be found on the usual CrossFit or fitness websites: Rogue Fitness, Again Faster, or even Amazon. Take a moment to do a gym bag inventory or share this list (and more!) with your loved ones. Everything on the list would make an amazing gift or stocking stuffer!
Like many things we take on in life, we have to be prepared. We covered the basics, the essentials, for your gym bag to make sure you’re on the right track. Now, it’s up to you.
Work hard, eat well, hydrate always, and sleep.
Show up, do the work, be humble, be kind, and never EVER give up.
