CrossFit Community Rocks – Welcome TWR CrossFit!

This past Saturday, September 16, Jason, Katie our Health Coach, and I made the quick trip down 465 to see the grand opening of Indy’s newest CrossFit box, Together We Rise CrossFit (TWR). Getting out to these events and welcoming new boxes to the CrossFit community always reminds me of what CrossFit is truly all about: growing the community to positively impact as many lives in our city as possible.

It is all too common in most industries to have unhealthy competition. A new barber shop opens up, and the older one hopes it does poorly and doesn’t take customers. A new car manufacturer gets off the ground (Tesla) and the incumbents (GM, Ford, Chrysler) do everything they can to protect their turf. It’s not that the CrossFit industry is any less competitive; we just believe there is room for everyone to play, and many more people to be served than any one of us could ever reach on our own.

This is actually one of the things I love about being a CrossFit box owner. I get to be happy when “competitors” open their doors. I can genuinely be happy to see more people having a chance to experience this fitness program which has so positively impacted my life. To TWR, welcome to the community! We hope to see people busting down your doors trying to get fit, have some fun, and make amazing friends. Know that you always have a friend in Summit Strength & CrossFit!

Am I ready for CrossFit?

We are asked, “Am I ready for CrossFit?” multiple times every week. The knee jerk reaction is to say yes. Then I got to thinking if that’s really true, or not. The biggest cliche in CrossFit is that everyone can do CrossFit. Ask any well-intentioned, experienced CrossFit coach or athlete and they will say, “CrossFit … more »

Achieve Your Goal

There’s a reason you hire a coach – which is what you’re doing when you join our box – and it is to achieve your goals. If you could accomplish everything you want on your own, there would not be a reason for you to work with us. The biggest mistake I see when working … more »
