Something for Everybody and Every Body at Your CrossFit Gym

As shared in my previous two posts, if you're new here, you probably found us because the CrossFit Journal team spent a week hanging out at CrossFit South Brooklyn (CFSBK) last summer in honor of our 10-year anniversary, and released a series of videos about our gym called "Inside CrossFit South Brooklyn." We are reposting some of these videos on Inside the Affiliate (click here for the full list of videos). Today, we're highlighting "Fit 55+," which shares more about how and why CFSBK strives to offer something for everyonein this case, a class specifically for our 55-years-old and up population. 

In a recent article, "10 Things I've Learned in 10 Years of Owning a CrossFit Gym," I shared my belief in the importance of creating a family-friendly environment that welcomes people of all ages. As I state in that article:

I am very much of the mindset that a successful community gym is a family-friendly gym. There are few things I love more than seeing multiple generations from kids to grandparents training together at the gym. I think a great test is: If your parents walked into your gym and wanted to sign up, would there be a place for them? If there's no one over 40 at your gym, I think that's a problem. In its best iteration, CrossFit provides fitness for everybody and every body. There's something innately enriching about having a diverse population at the gym, and it changes the culture for the better.

There are exciting things happening with Inside the Affilate, and we are looking forward to sharing more soon. Thanks for reading and as always, post questions in the comments.
